We rang in the New Year of 2013 at this hotel. We went with four other couples. The rooms were well appointed, clean and comfortable. The location is great right on the River Walk in a convenient location to all the tourist things to do in San Antonio. We attended the New Year's Eve party that was sponsored by the hotel. It had great food and drink but the DJ was terrible. We did complain directly to the DJ himself but not to the manager. All in all we had a good time even if some of the couples did not stay there the entire evening (because of the DJ) It was a great place to watch the fireworks at midnight (which we did from our friend's room which was on the firework's side of the hotel. The rooms are more expensive on that side. It was noisey till everyone went home. The hotel itself has thin walls so inside if one talked to loud in the next room or the hall it could be heard.
