There was some miscommunication with our booking and the room type, and our king room was not available when we checked in. However, everyone we came in contact with was friendly and helpful. We did have to spend one night in a small queen room, but were able to move the next day.
The hotel itself has been beautifully renovated, especially in the public areas. The rooms were clean and well furnished. However, it being an older hotel, there are some pitfalls, like some odd shaped, small rooms and rooms with not much of a view (like our standard queen, room 636, which was right next to the elevator, so we heard the "dings" most of the night and the window looked out onto the AC equipment).
We had breakfast the first day in the hotel restaurant, the "Market on Houston Street." I felt the price was fair and definitely comparable to other hotel restaurants. We had the "omelet" station, which was a buffet type meal. The omelet was perfectly cooked (Thanks, Ronald!) and the meal included bacon, sausage, potatoes, and various breads and pastries. The second morning, we ate in the club lounge and it was also very good. The club lounge staff is very attentive, keeping the food plentiful and the room clean.
You can't beat the location, either. It's not directly on the Riverwalk, but close enough to not be inconvenient. We easily walked to the Alamo and River Center Mall.
So, in spite of some early disappointment, I will not hesitate to stay at the Gunter again, and I do highly recommend it to others.
