I stayed here for the 3 nights in the middle part of my Texas holiday in October. I stayed at the Menger last year and decided to try the Crockett this time. You can't fault the location - it is across the road from the back of the Alamo - and therefore within a few minutes walking distance of the Riverwalk. As mentioned before breakfast is nothing to get excited about and more a case of fuelling for the day as opposed to a leisurely breakfast. My room was a double aspect room on the corner of the 5th floor which gave me views over the car park and interstate - ok nothing to get excited about - but had a nice view of the sun rising! Room was large and plenty of space to get messy but no fridge (available at a cost) and no room safe was a little annoying. Bathroom was fine but nothing to write home about. As with other hotels you get stung for car parking but it is just by the hotel and I dispensed with the valet parking on the first day. There is a small pool and sunbathing area between the hotel and car park - not the best location but better than nothing. Difficult to fault it really as it does the job and in most cases nobody goes to downtown San Antonio to sit in the hotel.
