This Marriott property is in the heart of the city, not just the Riverwalk. The courtyard is beautiful with historic buildings, pool, hot tub, fire pit and gorgeous peacocks. It's hard to believe you are in the city. The staff is the best I have experienced. We received bottles of water when we entered tired and hot, great restaurant tips... More

We were in San Antonio for a convention, the Marriott Plaza was very convenient for walking to the Convention Center and to lots of good restaurants. The room was comfortable, although we were near the elevator and I was bothered by the noise. (We turned the sound machine on from our phone.) The pool was nice, the restaurant was good,... More

My friend had a contract for a block of rooms for his wedding... unfortunately two months before the wedding the hotel decided to void his contract because they 'forgot' there was a more lucrative convention in town. Initially was redirected to The Residence Inn Market District, which was neither close or a comparable hotel, but was charged same price. Later... More

I was here after a very long day of travel for work. I was so excited to put my head down on a signature Marriott bed and pass out. Unfortunately, the fates had other things in mind. I went to my room and it was ok. The bed was a bit lacking in terms of a Marriott, but doable. I... More

We were pleasantly surprised at this tidy hotel near the river walk. Quiet and attentive staff. Room was very clean and had all the amenities. Breakfast was pricey so plan on eating elsewhere. Lots to chose from on river walk a short walk away. Self park is handy.

Great first impressions warm, welcoming and continued throughout our stay. Valet parking attendant greeted us with a cheerful welcome; told us a little about the hotel and area and restaurants within walking distance. Lobby was beautiful and inviting; complimentary apples and fusion waters. Front Desk staff greeted us with "welcome, we've been expecting you"; very professional "polished" staff. Any time... More

This hotel beats the Marriott Riverwalk. It has the bedside outlets and bathroom vanity at a normal height. Most noticeably, they do not use the horrible scent machines. The hotel is clean and they don't need to try and hide odors. The kids also loved the peacock.

I've driven by this place a hundred times and it looks nice on the outside but it's the inside that really sells the place. There is a nice bar, restaurant, gift shop, pool and garden area with peacocks roaming around. The rooms are clean and comfortable and the staff is extremely friendly and helpful. The breakfast buffet was really good... More

Dear Kevin L., I am thrilled that you came in to stay with us. The hotel has been completely renovated and I agree, it really sets a wonderful ambiance, while still keeping that San Antonio feel. It has beautiful grounds that is rare to have downtown. The peacocks are always great to see and have been a tradition of this... More

I searched Trip Advisor for hotels near the Alamo. It's not easy to judge distances, and "near the Riverwalk" is not necessarily "near the Alamo." As it turns out, this hotel is neither near the Riverwalk nor near the Alamo, at least relative to other large hotels in the city. Having said that, though, it is within walking distance of... More

We booked the hotel by bidding on Priceline for a River Walk hotel. While not on the River Walk, the hotel was just a short five minute walk to one of the access points. The front desk personnel were welcoming and helpful, and were able to meet our request for a quiet room away from the general traffic flow. We... More
