This relatively new hotel on the Riverwalk I highly recommend. We enjoyed the location, just a but away from the hectic part of the Riverwalk but not so far that the walk would deter you from going anywhere or seeing anything downtown.
We got a great deal on a 2 Queen room so we couldn't pass it up on a very busy week that included the Alamo Bowl and New Years' Eve. We were there as a family for a post Christmas get away with other members of our extended family. Everything was as expected.
Front desk was ready for us upon arrival and check in took less than 2 minutes. The room included all the extra amenities we had requested through Hilton Honors. The view was away from downtown, so nothing special but we had not requested a river view and knew what we were getting for the price.
The room itself had two separate areas, a bedroom with the two queens and a flat screen TV and a living area that included a sofa sleeper, desk area, TV, and bar with fridge, microwave and sink.
The room was well taken care of during our 2 night stay.
The morning breakfast is much better than the Drury properties with prepared to order hot foods and a huge assortment of cereals, fruit, breads, etc.
We did not partake in the Manager's reception (happy hour) so cannot comment but it is nightly from 5:30 to 7:30 I believe.
As others have mentioned valet parking is pricey but in line with other downtown San Antonio properties. The valet attendants were very attentive and had our car ready each time we called ahead to let them know we were leaving the hotel. There are lots across the street that are self-service, $10 for each 12 hours and you pay using a machine that accepts credit cards as well as cash. Beware, the machines do not make change!
Checkout was as simple as collecting our receipt that was slipped under our door on the final morning.
We have stayed at many of the properties on the Riverwalk and this one is very good. It is not a 5 star property with all of the amenities of a full service hotel but it is a step above mid-range properties like Drury in my opinion. We would not hesitate to stay again.
