From the moment we pulled up and were greeted by a valet to the welcoming staff greeting us as we walked across the lobby we were Wowed by San Antonio Marriott Rivercenter.
I was traveling alone with plans for my husband to join me later in the evening. I was exhausted from a cancelled flight, little sleep, a busy conference and the mugginess of the Texas heat. Walking into the coolness of the Marriott lobby was like a breath of fresh air. Staff greeted me the instant I walked into the door, with one gentleman asking my name and escorting me to the front desk. "This is Mrs. ____________ checking in, please take excellent care of her" as he handed me off to the front desk staff. I was briskly checked in and when I mentioned my fatigue and the fact I was looking forward to a glass of wine and relaxation I was offered a complimentary glass of wine to be delivered to my room. WOW!I also asked if my room had any sort of view to the Riverwalk and immediately was given a 35th floor corner room with stunning views of downtown San Antonio and the Riverwalk. Another escort to the elevator and I was headed to my room.
Ah....the room, a King standard room which was very nice, tastefully appointed and sporting a fabulous view. Did I mention that I love Marriott? Great shower, fabulous hot, hot, hot water and excellent water pressure. Wine delivery was prompt and I went about the business of RELAXING! A quick look at the in room dining menu and a bottle of wine was ordered along with Chicken Quesadilla's, very good and a huge serving! I also ordered a bucket of beer for my soon to arrive hubby. I was able to mix and match a variety of foreign and domestic beers for him along with some freshly sliced lime. He would be very appreciative!
The bed was comfortable and we slept great, only complaint being we couldn't get the room cool enough for our liking. We like to sleep COLD, and this wasn't the case. After kicking off the duvet we slept fine.
I was very impressed with this hotel and would stay here again in a heartbeat. Proximity to shopping, restaurants, the Riverwalk....you can't go wrong, we'll be back!
Ask for a room with a view. We were placed in 3510 which had spectacular views of Downtown and glimp...
