We spent a morning looking at almost all the RiverWalk hotels and then chose this one which is not really on the River Walk but is very close to everything. We booked 3 nights and were so pleased that we stayed an extra night.
We often stay at Hampton Inns, and we thought this was the best one we've tried. The staff was so friendly and kind. When I mentioned in conversation to the checkout clerk that we had an early flight, the next day, she gave us 2 boxed breakfasts even though we wouldn't be staying there the night before our flight. We saw a cleaning lady stop what she was doing and get other extra cleaning equipment to clean up a spill she saw in the elevator. When we needed a certain size of cardboard box to pack something, the staff found one for us.
Other reviewers have mentioned noise, but we didn't hear any. We thought everything was perfect: bright and clean, comfortable beds, good breakfast, etc. Parking is free, a rarity in downtown San Antonio.
You can sightsee without using your car. The location is only a couple of blocks from the beginning of the RiverWalk boat tours (which is inside the River City Mall.) The Hampton is equally close to the Alamo and to the trolley tours which depart from Alamo Plaza.
