We have used this hotel for each of the four years we have done the Rock and Roll Half Marathon. The staff is very friendly and the hotel is clean and very well run. The valets are wonderful and helpful even if the price for valet parking is a little steep (38 bucks a night). The hotel is huge with a great meeting area in the lobby with a restaurant and bar and a Starbucks. It is right nest to the Riverwalk and convenient to everything touristy including the Alamo. The beds are excellent and the hotel is very clean. In four years, we have never had a bad experience. It is a little pricey (205 bucks a night for a double room plus 38 bucks a night for valet parking plus federal, state, and city tax. One night with one car was 280 bucks). We were on the 11th floor, and my brother, who was on the 25th floor, had a gorgeous view of the city. I would recommend this hotel for its great staff, clean rooms, and convenience to the Riverwalk and other attractions.
