“Great vacation hotel”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 20, 2012

This hotel had a great location just two blocks from the Alamo and the Riverwalk. Many good restaurants within walking distance. Nice mini-suite room layout that includes full size fridge, stove, microwave, dishwasher (and pots/dishes). Hot continental breakfast included was okay, but not great.

Two blocks from the Alamo. The same from the Riverwalk. Competitive prices. Prices are reasonable. For a small fee you can get valet parking, which in the downtown is a tremendous value. EVERY SINGLE ONE of their service team, concierge, parking valets, everyone made a point of greeting us, answering any questions about everything from restaurants to places that might be interesting. Every morning came with complimentary breakfast in their large and welcoming common space. And not the same generic every day. A breakfast that would have cost us $10 or more each every day. The room itself had the typical Southwest high ceilings and a full kitchenette: equipped with pots, pans and service for four! And if you got the "midnight munchies", there is a "market" in a small room behind the front desk, with ice cream, microwaveable meals (and there IS a microwave in your room). A great place for someone checking out a beautiful city.

This was a great location, a few blocks from the Riverwalk and all the attractions. Many restaurants are within walking distance. The staff is really warm and friendly and very professional. Breakfast (complimentary) was okay, and quite varied for free. The kitchenettes were really usable, as they had pots and pans, dishes, dish towels and soap and a full sized refrigerator/freezer. This would be a great place for an extended stay. The property is modern, clean and well, kept. The only complaint I had was that the a.c. was not working in the fitness room, so you really get your sweat going. Overall, a great stay.

Room Tip: The courtyard rooms, while covenient are noisy. Go higher for a quieter stay.

My husband I were visiting the area for a few days prior to the start of conference at the Grand Hyatt. We chose this location as it was affordable and fit all the needs of our trip. It was a great choice. I wouldn't hesitate to stay here again. It has been over a year since our visit but we talk of going back to explore this fun city.

I had to give a speech at a CFO Roundtable, hosted a another hotel. I do a considerable amount of traveling and prefer Marriott properties. I was not disappointed. The staff was great. The property was well kept. The rooms were clean and bright. And, the proximity to the sites, restaurants and Riverwalk was perfect. I highly recommend the property to anyone wishing to stay in San Antonio.

Got to hotel early before check'in time. Front desk took care of our luggage and gave us lots of help on what to do while we waited for the room to be available. Only a block or so from the Alamo so we went on tour and came back. The front desk had our luggage in our room for us. The valet parking folks were just as friendly and helpful. We were somewhat disappointed that the breakfast, which was very nice, did not have any fruit of any kind.

We were just a block from the river walk entrance as well. Great location and the hotel is reasonably priced. I'd go back. Very comfortable room.

Room Tip: One side of hotel rooms look out onto wall. Could have been better.
