I like new hotels like the Holiday Inn Hotel & Suites San Antonio Northwest. I don’t particularly like the fact that the GPS didn’t know where the hotel was, but the hotel’s website noted the intersection so my GPS did a pretty good job of getting me there. There is another very nice relatively new Holiday Inn in San Antonio – Holiday Inn North/Hill Country on Redland Road. I’ve stayed there several times, and have reviewed it as well. Don’t confuse these two – both are new and north, but on different sides of the city. This review is for the Holiday Inn on University Heights & Silicon Road.
Anyway, this property was new, spotlessly clean, and one of the quietest places I’ve ever stayed. I was upgraded to a king suite, with modern décor and lots of room. This property was so quiet that I felt like I was the only person in the entire hotel. It may be different in the summer though because of the proximity to local attractions. I also think it just hasn’t been discovered by business travelers yet because it seems a bit out of the way. I found it to be fine and easily accessible to and from everywhere I had meetings.
When I stopped by the front desk to ask about good nearby restaurants, Chase, the young man at the desk said “Trust me… you should stay here and try the hotel restaurant.” I did, and he was right. I had a wonderful salad and pasta, personally delivered by Brian, the chef. After dinner I stayed at the bar for a while visiting with the bartender, Art. I tried Art’s new specialty drink – not totally sure, but I think he called it a Texas Sunrise. It was very nice, and just different enough to call it a “specialty” drink. After a while Brian came back from the kitchen and invited me to sample a new dessert made with banana bread. Yum! The hotel’s slow business really benefitted me that trip, but I had to skip every meal the next day to make up for it!
I highly recommend this Holiday Inn, and I will be back.
