George ensured we were well taken care of each and every day. Rooms are clean and everyone was very helpful. I’ll bring my wife next time and stay here. The rooftop bar has a great view and cold beers.

We had a wonderful experience with at this historic hotel. Sure, I'd love to have USB ports in the room, but the historic look and feel of this place made it my favorite hotel in San Antonio. And the staff were awesome, especially George. He was so knowledgeable and professional. Oh, and the espresso was to die for! And they knew about the twist of lemon in it.. oh yeah baby. Our Bartender at the Roof Top bar was incredible and so friendly, Bradley. (The chick that came up to help him close needs some social lessons or smile lessons. Seriously though, servers always should smile, and if they can't leave their baggage at the door, call in. People, customers, remember how you make them feel and she was most unwelcoming. We would have stayed up there longer, but no, she was closing up without giving two cares.) Blake, our waiter in the restaurant was awesome, attentive, interested and on the ball! Yeah, my hats off to George, Bradley, and Blake. You made our stay a memorable and wonderful one. Thank you.

Staff were friendly, engaging and bent over backwards to accommodate but there was only so much they could do. The hotel structure and furniture needs some repairs . Sitting outside on the balcony, we noticed several windows where the window frames were seriously failing. There were major cracks in two separate walls in our suite where “settling”of the structure is apparent. Several pieces of furniture were not usable as drawer handles were missing, the beautiful drapes did not pull shut completely to block out the light and the sheers were tattered. Wifi is not accessible in all rooms and the thermostat wouldn't go below 72. The hotel is scheduled for remodeling later this year and many of these issues are likely to be addressed. For the price and service... I still recommend it. It is close to the Riverwalk and Hemisphere park and is quieter than other locations.

Our experience was very positive at The Fairmount Hotel in San Antonio. George was outstanding at helping us out. The room was clean, beds were comfortable, and it had a pleasant atmosphere. A physical room key was a neat experience I haven't had in a long time, the on-site steakhouse is outstanding, and the lobby bar by the elevator is a great place to enjoy a few drinks. Pricing was very reasonable for San Antonio Riverwalk area. If you're looking for a brand new hotel with all the latest and greatest, this isn't what this hotel is all about. However, if you are looking for something different, a clean room with great service, and a fascinating historical hotel, this is the place for you. We will stay again for sure, it was a very enjoyable experience.

Amazing service at this hotel. We booked a room here through Priceline and they did not give us all the details. George went out of his way to make sure we were comfortable and offered options to us and our teenage daughters. We were asked often if there was anything we needed. Roxanne was great too the next morning, holding our bags while we shopped and making sure we had additional coffee. The rooftop bar was gorgeous and a great end to our evening on Saturday. We will be back! The hotel was historic, beautifully kept and the staff made us feel at home.
