This was the first time we had stayed at one of Hilton's Home2 Suites locations so I was curious to see how it would compare to a Hilton Homewood Suites. Overall, they were very similar. In each, you will find plenty of room to stretch out. This is good if you are an extended stay business traveler or traveling with your family. I think either type of Hilton would work out well for business or family travelers but the Home2 Suites do seem to be more focused on the business traveler. For example, the one we stayed in did not have a pool but it did have an oversized hot tub.
Our stay was filled with pluses. The staff was polite and useful, the room and common areas were clean, the location was within an easy walk of the Riverwalk area and the Alamo. The only downside that comes to mind is parking. As is typical of most urban hotels, count on parking your car in their garage. I believe it cost around $25 per day. For this reason, I typically try to avoid downtown locations. We spent three nights in San Antonio. We spent one night here so we could be close to the Riverwalk area and Alamo, and then another two nights at Hilton San Antonio Hill Country Hotel & Spa by Seaworld. I will write a separate review of that magnificent property.
Would I recommend this location to a friend? Yes. This was a wonderful property and it was worth paying the downtown parking fee for one night for the convenience of being close to the Riverwalk area and the Alamo.
