I agree with all the good things that have been said about this hotel. It is perfectly located for a downtown visit--close enough to the Riverwalk to be convenient and far enough away that it doesn't cost a fortune. The Alamo is two blocks away and the downtown loop bus is half way down the block (public transit not the tourist hop-on/hop-off). The rooms are spacious and they are clean and well kept up. I prefer a shower to climbing in and out of a bathtub, so I was happy. The a/c was delightful and the fan could be set to run constantly.
There were plenty of choices on the breakfast buffet including some hot choices-- eggs, sausages, cook'em fresh waffles and I think I saw some potatoes. There were a couple of choices for juices, cold cereal+toppings, breads, yogurts and milk. (Note, there was no half&half for the coffee, only milk from the fridge or non-dairy creamer on the coffee bar).
[Here is my one complaint. The jug that held the hot water for the tea and hot chocolate was used at one point for coffee and that stale, been sitting there for hours coffee taste can never be washed out. My iced tea tasted terrible. UGH!! like a pot of stale coffee.]
Complaint aside, the service here was excellent. We had just spent three nights at the JW Hill Country at a convention and you know that convention hotels are all about hospitality, luxury, indulgence and service, service, service. Service at the TPS, was as good as what we found at the JW. We pulled up at the hotel with our rental car and I think three people came out to help us unload the car and give the driver directions to the Hertz drop-off at the Marriott RiverCenter. The front desk called to order a cab for us for 6am and got on the phone with the cab company when it wasn't out front at 5:50am. We were sitting by the TV in the lobby and they came over to make sure that it was cool enough where we were sitting and that we were happy with what was on the TV. Little things that add up.
All in all, TPS was the perfect choice for us and I hope we get back to San Antonio, because I know exactly where I want to stay!!
