4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 17, 2012 via mobile

Downtown, easy access to all events. Clean rooms. Good banquet food. Comfy beds. Friendly staff. River walk is very relaxing. Weather in fall is fabulous.

Three large groups kept the hotel alive.
For business, I would return.

The location good, the property is a bit aged, the rooms functional. Not large, but comfy as one would expect from the top of the line Marriott flag. Internet not free, but connectivity poor! My cell phone had better connection time! When I inquired, I was connected, presumably to a call center where the poor chap lacked the most basic English langauge skills ! At about $200 a night, I would expect Marriott to employ someone on the spot, to "fix, make right, create goodwill, or simply make one's stay more pleasant.

Room Tip: I was here for a seminar on the site. If doing this on my own, I have alway found Courtyard by Marr...

Excellent location & top quality service. I was pleasant surprised at the level of quality and the level of professionalism of the staff. The resturants overlooking the riverwalk were spacious and the outside eating areas very clean.

Room Tip: Ask for the river walk view

Nothing really bad nor good to say about this convention-center hotel except that you really can't do much better location-wise. If they are not hosting a bid convention when you are going, you should be able to get in on Priceline for very little money, in which case it is absolutely the best place to stay. I paid $75 a night (rack rate 4 times as much) for three nights.

I was at a Conference for the International Facility Managers Association in San Antonio between October 30th and November 2nd and stayed at this hotel. It was really convenient to the Convention Center and the Riverwalk, so the location was great. The front desk staff were professional and very helpful and the lobby looked much as you would expect from a major brand hotel.

The problem hit me when I got off the elevator on a high level of the hotel [ yes I have good status with this brand ] dirty hallways. Although the room was a good size I can honestly say I have never seen carpet in a 4 star hotel so poorly maintained. IT WAS FILTHY. There were at least three very noticeable stains that could have been anything from coffee to soda to – you don’t want to know.

Do yourself a favor – stay at one of the other hotels near the convention center in San Antonio.

Room Tip: Higher levels if you must stay here are better - lots of noise from the Riverwalk

Stayed while attending a conference in the same hotel. It's a nice place and the rooms are nice. It's big and I had trouble in some areas getting phone reception (which is a big deal and several people mentioend it). Overall my stay was nice and I really have no complaints, but... In the conference area, it seems like they skimped on places to sit down and talk to someone. That's part of why you go to a conference is to talk to people, but you either have to go to the lobby or stand... More chairs please...!

Great location across the street from the conference center and on the river walk. Our king bed had a trench in the middle of it. Maybe time to replace some of the mattresses? Great view down the river walk on the 7th floor. Bellmen are great. Guy that watches for car services is a does not have any listening skills. I was waiting for a car service and wanted to sit inside until they arrived. Rather than listening to me explain what I wanted him to do (for a tip), as soon as he heard car service, he told me to go to the front desk to order a car. Duh ... I already had one. He didn't get a tip.

Room Tip: Ask for river view. Ask if there is a newer mattress.
