The hotel was beautiful and had a fantastic location on the Riverwalk right next to the Majestic Theater. The inside was decorated in a relaxing bohemian style and it has an excellent courtyard in lieu of a pool. I'm sure this is not the norm, but unfortunately our room was plagued with a decidedly noisy rattling air conditioner. It wasn't so bad to sleep through and ignore but we really felt it when we tried to watch a movie on our last night there. Apparently they restrict the television volume to 16 and so we were unable to hear the movie over the rattle. We would have called down to report it, but apparently our phone was out of order because it just beeped no matter which button we pressed. Between the road noise outside and the rattling air conditioner, the movie was impossible to hear. I was too tired to care, so we did not inform the hotel and they were not given a chance to make good.
As a side note, if you are planning to visit San Antonio I highly recommend that you get a Rio Taxi pass for everyone during the time of your stay. Skip the boat tour, the taxi is much nicer. For $10 you can get on and off as much as you like for 24 hours and there isn't really anyplace downtown the taxi can't get you close to including the Alamo and the Tower of America. They also have the museum reach if you want to pay a few bucks more and get to all the museums.
