Check-in was easy, valet was friendly (although he had to tell me they don't have a bellman, so it's "haul your own luggage") Victor at the front desk was nice, gave me directions that I asked for.
The room is, as others have stated, somewhat dated. Orange duvet, plaid carpets, dark fake wood....there's a 70's Days Inn looking for its furniture...I had a corner suite, 707, which is quite a bit larger than many Homewood Suites I've stayed in. The room was clean, but the hole in the carpet next to the bathroom is regrettable.
Also, as a HH member at my level, there are normally some extra amenities in the room - not this time.
This hotel is several blocks from the busy section of the Riverwalk, so if you're looking to be near the Alamo, the restaurants, etc...look elsewhere.
