I stayed here for two nights for a conference at the nearby Convention Center. The location is good - easy access from 40 and walking distance to Front Street and to the Convention Center. (Although the River Walk doesn't really work in heels!)
The hotel itself was average - it smelled a bit like the seaside/river (ie, damp) and the bathrooms were aged, but everything was very clean. Rooms had good TV, coffee/tea and free wifi. Beds were comfortable.
The front desk team provided good service - very friendly and they even happily changed my room for me when I complained about the noise from the room next door. For that I give them an extra point! I ended up in room 933 - it was quiet, facing the river with a good view of the battleship.
