I stay at this hotel only because our company has a contract that forces us to do so. I have never had a good experience here. Noise from outside (single pane windows), noise from inside, HIVAC issues from being too noisy to not working at all. Doors at will not secure to rooms that have smelled like a sewer (literally, as the city sewer gasses were backing up into the hotel), or the usual case of a room's stench of mildew covered by bleach. Dripping faucets. On this last visit one of the elevators was inoperative for most of the stay and there was a teenage Mexican Folk dancing competition going on at the hotel with teenagers yelling and screaming in the hallways at all hours day and night. Repeated calls to the "manager" were to no avail. You can do far better in San Antonio than stay here. Avoid it like the plague.
