We were in town for state marching band competition and had almost 300 people at this hotel - most of whom were students. We checked in at after 11pm and the hotel was wonderful about being quick in getting key-cards to our kids and getting everyone checked into rooms. The desk staff and management were incredibly friendly and accomodating!
The room was suprisingly large and seemed to have recently been remodeled. The separate sleeping area was great for rooms with more than four students. And, the separate sink made it easier for multiple students to get ready at the same time.
As an adult, I expected the hotel to be noisy - and I am a light sleeper. Other than a bit of street noise, I did not hear anything the entire night.
Breakfast the next morning was your usual for a hotel of this level. But, the staff kept all the items full and replenished so we could get a big group through. Also, the lobby is large and had ample area for our group to spread out and get organized before leaving for the day.
I would recommend this for a group - or I'd stay there for any event at the Riverwalk or Alamodome.
