“Fantastic stay - as usual”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 15, 2013

I have had the pleasure of staying at this hotel four or five times in as many years. It is always superb. The bed is super comfortable, spacious, quiet rooms. The check in staff is efficient and gracious. Venetia Flowers was very friendly; helpful in sharing shopping destinations and public transportation information.

Room Tip: I stayed on a higher floor and had a cathedral ceiling in the room, making it feel even larger.

I stayed at the Marriott Plaza in SA on a recent mid-week mini vacation. I was with two boys (6 and 11)--nephews as well as my sister and her husband. We booked two rooms and also had access to the concierge level. It was wonderful. The hotel has a great pool and jacuzzi area in the garden and the peacocks are really cool to watch. We enjoyed our rooms and the extra touches in the concierge room--good appetizers and breakfast. The staff at the hotel was very helpful and gave us advice on restaurants along the Riverwalk. Everthing downtown was easy access and we toured the Alamo and other places. We took a boat ride with the boys and they loved seeing the ducks and all the buildings. Thanks for the great place to stay!!

Room Tip: Very relaxing to have a garden view, but the city views are good for photos.

My husband and I have stayed at this property numerous times and have yet to be disappointed. The staff is helpful and very efficient. The rooms are spacious and quiet, with balconies and nice pool views. Great lobby bar and awesome location with easy parking.. Right next to Little Rhine and Riverwalk. We like this hotel because of its understated atmosphere and great rooms!

Our most recent trip was in mid-December... Loved it as usual. Great dinner at Little Rhine. Very relaxing and romantic getaway! Very good value for the money!

I never leave reviews online because I never believed they were true, but the Marriott Plaza changed my mind. This oasis in the middle of the hustle and bustle of the city is an escape to paradise. The courtyard is calm and serene and the beautiful peacocks and pheasants roaming the garden made it seem like I was traveling to a foreign land. The rooms were very large and the beds very comfortable and the staff was the friendliest I have ever encountered in a hotel. The Lobby Ambassador, Venetia Flowers greeted me as I got out of my car with a warm smile and took care of every request I had while I was in town. She made great recommendations for dining, gave me a history lesson of the hotel, made reservations for my party and even knew the best place to take a run on the river. (She even had a wine opener in her pocket when I needed one.) This was my best business trip ever. I can't wait to bring my family back for a long weekend.

Room Tip: Any of the rooms facing the courtyard.

Beautiful hotel, perfectly suitable for families. Unbelievably professional staff (Marriott real chooses them well). April the at the front desk had checked us in and was very sweet and pleasant, after a long and rough flight. We also enjoyed a delicious breakfast, our server David was sweet and very courteous, but most of all patient with our young kids. Overall I would come here again. One of the best vacation experiences!!

I love the Plaza and stay there any time I'm in San Antonio. It's further from my office than many other hotels but I always feel welcome, service and food is great, and the quaint feel of this place is unmatchable. The pool is beautiful as well and the whole property has a kind of local flavor. The decor, the ivy, the fountains, the tile... it just screams San Antonio. Walking distance from the Alamo and Riverwalk. Consistently superb!

Looks are deceiving! This property intrigued me on my last trip to San Antonio becuase of the large trees out front. Even though it has the look of well worn past the interior has been recently upgraded. My room was well decorated (southwestern flare) and facing the interior courtyard and pool area (odd number rooms) which was well manicured. The bed was very comfortable (not too hard) and the bathroom and powder area had granite tops. The Concierge room was large w/patio seating overlooking the pool and courtyard. I spent an hour in the courtyard under the pergola near the pool and fire ring enjoying a great cigar and fine beverage while listening to the sound of falling water. For me this place had all the comforts and amenities I expect when traveling on business or pleasure and was a great value for the price in downtown San Antone.

Dear Steve,

Thank you for taking the time to share your experience on Trip Advisor. I do beleive we are San Antonio's best kept secret. Our property is so unique and the grounds are beautiful. With the fountains, courtyard, fire pit; there are many areas to enjoy a cocktail, cigar or relax by the pool.

We have been through an amazing refresh with guest rooms being renovated, concierge lounge and adding a large corner panty. We are about to finish up our lobby/ bar area as well. We want every guest to have an amazing experience and I am so glad you did.

Thank you for choosing to stay with us and we hope to see you back soon!
