My wife and I stayed at the Marriott Plaza San Antonio over a long weekend in mid-June. We had considered the two Marriotts right on the Riverwalk, but were concerned about their "big box" feel and wanted something quieter and more relaxing. By staying at the Plaza, we were rewarded with a quiet hotel with beautiful grounds, (which includes historic buildings) a friendly staff, and a large room by most standards. The hotel is only a block from the outdoor Arneson Theatre and the artisans' enclave La Villita (both right on the Riverwalk). It is also directly across the street from HemisFair Park and the Tower of the Americas.
If you suffer from Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder, having peacocks and other birds freely roaming the hotel grounds will send you into overdrive. They can be noisy, particularly in the morning. However, it is still quieter than listening to throngs of people on the Riverwalk until 2:00 AM.
The only real negative about the hotel was the lack of a functioning Concierge Lounge. The lounge exists, but was undergoing "repair" according to hotel management. The staff tried to compensate by offering continental breakfast coupons, which doesn't quite measure up.
All in all, this was one of the more pleasant hotel stays my wife and I have enjoyed. We'll definitely be back!
