I enjoy recognizing people who provide great customer service.
I found such a thing at the hotel breakfast - with Daniel. I wanted to speak to his manager personally, but was told by the front desk to post here instead...So...
He was our server both days. This is a buffet (which is a good deal at $5 when you make your reservation, $10 at the door), so not much interaction required, really. However, he was always friendly, helpful and had an excellent attitude. This made us feel very at ease while we ate. So, manager who reads this every day (according to the front desk), take note.
Otherwise, the hotel lobby was very nicely decked out, but the exterior is very tired. The location is a good walk (15 minutes?) from the Alamo and most of the 'things to do'. But, entry to the river walk is just across the street and it's a pleasant walk.
Rooms were adequate, nice enough.
