My mom and I went for Spring Break for 5 days. I must say I am the one that booked it and my mom was a little worried because the price to stay was so cheap. You do have to pay for parking at the hotel...but we didn't mind at all. We abolutely loved our stay at this hotel. Great service! The staff is SO nice, welcoming, friendly, at your service at all times. Any questions about walking directions or sight seeing they are there for you....such a help! The rooms were a nice size, clean, comfortable! The pool was very nice, on top of the roof so you can catch some sun if your there in a sunny season! This hotel is very family oriented...very nice. They showed movies almost every night at the pool. You can even watch the movies from your room! (Disney movies, etc.) There restraunt in the hotel is pretty good. Location I'd say was perfect for us...yes we had to walk a possible 5-8 minutes to get to the River Walk...but the staff really helped give us faster walking directions. It didn't feel like it took long at all to get to the River Walk. Also if you would like to keep a work out while your on vaction there fitness room is very nice!!!
When we go back to SA we are staying here! =]
