We didn't know when we booked just how close we would be to the Alamo and the Riverwalk. We literally walked out the back door of the hotel, through their parking lot, crossed the street and we were at the Alamo, not to mention the River Center mall across the stree). Another block, and it was the Riverwalk. We loved this location. We always try to stay at Springhill Suites, and this experience solidifies our choice. The location is perfect, the staff are outstanding, and the rooms are large and comfortable. The breakfast was a little above average for these properties. For being in the middle of it all, it's also a quiet hotel.
We arrived a day before New Year's Eve, not knowing about the big bash they have at Hemisfaire Park each year. We were able to walk there and enjoy the outing, then return to the hotel and watch the fireworks from the front of the hotel without having to be in the crowds. It was great! The valet staff are exceptional. Although you have to pay $21 a day for valet parking, it was well worth it. Whenever we needed our car, we just texted the valet and our car was waiting by the time we got downstairs.
If you are planning a trip to San Antonio and want to be in the middle of it all, this is a great place to stay!
