We stayed at this hotel as we were driving across the country from Boca Raton, FL to San Diego, CA. We booked the hotel on Priceline, and were incredibly impressed with the value. We had a lovely, completely renovated room. The bathroom was really nicely done, and the room very comfortable and large with 2 double beds. We had a very nice view of the Alamo from our 4th floor room. We were greeted with cookies at check-in, and the staff were incredibly friendly at all times. Our only regret was that we could not stay longer. San Antonio (and the Emily Morgan) made a great impression on us. We want to come back. Based on some recent yelp reviews that I read, it is possible that some rooms have not yet been renovated. So if you are very particular, you may want to ask nicely at check-in for a renovated room. Every staff person I met made a super friendly, accommodating impression. We did not make any special request, and got a great room.
We did not pay for valet parking. Instead, when we arrived in the evening, we parked on the street 1.5 blocks away for free. We went out in the morning and paid the meter ($0.25/hr) for 5hrs (the max, I believe). On-street parking was abundant when we visited.
BTW, the other hotels we stayed at on our cross-country trip: Courtyard by Marriott Pensacola (good), Marriott French Quarter New Orleans (very good), Courtyard by Marriott NASA Houston (outstanding), Holiday Inn express Carlsbad NM (OK room, friendly staff, nice breakfast), Wyndham Westward Look Tucson (outstanding). We "pricelined" all hotels day-by-day as we drove, paying about $60/night for everything other than the Carlsbad property, which was $120 on priceline.
