One of the challenges of Marriott Rewards is finding good city hotels to use Megabonus certificates, which are restricted to category 4 or less. This hotel was available over Memorial Day weekend, so I took a chance. I was quite happy. The location is great, less than two blocks from the Alamo and Riverwalk.
The hotel provides valet parking at $24 per night or something like that, but you might be able to find cheaper options. The cheapest is street parking on Sunday, because the meters are operated 8 am to 6 pm Monday through Saturday. Sundays and holidays are free. There aren't a lot of spots, but it's possible. The desk clerks were fine with me suggesting that to someone else. There are also a couple pay lots for $10-12 in the area. Though they have restrictions, they still might work.
The one bedroom suite was in very good shape. Everything worked, the air conditioning unit was very quiet, and I slept well. Breakfast offerings are fairly extensive, including 4 waffle makers. Even if you don't like waffles, take a look at the shape - it's a good chuckle!
As an award redemption, this was outstanding. I would also have no hesitation paying money here if I wanted to be downtown in San Antonio.More
