“JW Marriott San Antonio - JW stands for Just Wonderful!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 14, 2013

Stellar staff!! Amazing accommodations, amenities, and activities for all ages and reasons. I have traveled the world for business and pleasure staying at various top resorts and hotels and was pleasantly surprised to find this Shangri-La in my own hometown. I currently live and work in DC and returned to San Antonio for my wedding. The thoughtful staff was wonderful and went above and beyond to make our wedding weekend extra special - especially Karelia. Thank you, Karelia!!! If you are planning a wedding or any other event, this resort has it all and your guests will thank you for it. The event coordinator, Amanda, is very responsive and professional; and will also exceed expectations. It is evident that management strives to foster a work environment that encourages great customer service, cooperation, and staff development. We have been most impressed that staff members not normally responsible for certain areas; nevertheless, when necessary, stepped in to assist our guests and us. Because of our great experience, this resort will now be our place to stay when visiting family and friends. The spa and spa staff is FANTASTIC. A must stay! THANK YOU for an extraordinary experience!

There is really no need to lever the property Unless you want to sample some of what downtown San Antonio has to offer along with the local cuisine. several restaurants to choose from, onsite shopping, FedEx, Starbucks, a waterpark. sports bar, 2 gyms, walking an running trails. PGA golf course and Spa/ The rooms were very clean beds were extremely comfortable. The only thing keeping this from an A+ and an excellent rating is that there is no free wifi. Wifi is charged on a per day rate.

Room Tip: Upper floors have great views of the property

I stayed 4 nights here for a conference. The service from the staff was tremendous. Always eager to help and with a smile. The hotel is very clean and gorgeous. The pool area makes you feel like you're on an island instead of in the middle of San Antonio. By far the best place I've ever stayed.

I travel a lot & short of a few resorts in Vegas this is one of my favorite in the country. Every thing here was great. Slept very well. Enjoyed my patio & the fountain outside. Nice big bathroom. Starbucks in the lobby. 2 workout centers (1 in lodging side 1 in day spa). The day spa is amazing & relaxing. Food & drinks were all decilous. The only downside was the $65 cab ride each way to/from the riverwalk. Highly recommend this place.

The staff are incredible. There is a little something for everyone and the top dining places are willing to come pick you up and shuttle you into San Antonio for a great dinner. Twenty minutes from river walk set in a tranquil area just outside of town. The staff exceeds expectations. The spa is incredible.

An amazing property, accompanied by quite possibly the best management and staff I've encountered in years. As reference, I've been travelling in business for 30+ years and so have become somewhat enlightened and critical about what to expect from a good hotel. This property and staff exceed any expectation I've had from a 'chain' hotel group. In fact, I've not stayed in a nicer chain hotel in the USA.

Clean and fresh in every detail, both in my room and throughout the public areas. Spacious and quiet room, great bed and pillows, spotless bathrooms, quality amenities... all perfectly attended and 'professional.' (what I mean by 'professional' is nice, informative and genuinely pleasant, without being clingy or overly 'handwringy')

The ONLY issue I have with this property is the same that I have with most four star+ hotels... Why not embed the internet fee in the room charge, instead of irritating us by isolating and upcharging that $14 connection tack-on? Even the $49 freeway hotels manage this, so at hundreds per night, why not consider a different approach with these nuisance fees?

Bottom Line... I always judge a hotel I've stayed in for business, by asking myself if I would recommend it to family and friends, or return there personally for leisure... at my own expense. The answer on this one is, 'Absolutely Yes.'

This place has something for everyone. Huge pools with slides, great golf, a spa and great service. The food all around is good and 18 oaks is worth eating at for dinner. Highly Recommend this place for all occasions.
