Stayed here Sep 9-12, 2008 and the reviews and photos are accurate. It is BEAUTIFUL and the amenities are SUPERB!
Check-in was FAST and the rooms were clean. The flatscreen was a nice touch and the bathroom was extra clean and sparkling. The view from 618 was so-so but my coworker got an 11th story room with awesome views and apparently the room was bigger. But my room was spacious enough for me. Absolutely no complaints.
The breakfast buffet was AWESOME and I'm not really a breakfast person. Pancakes, biscuits & gravy, sausage patties, eggs (and the eggs were perfect, not dry or too wet *ick*), and cereal, fruit, etc. Lovely breakfast spread.
My coworker also went to the Happy Hour every day with free food and drinks. He had the nacho's and said they were ok but the drinks were super. When I walked by one day, that floor (the food service is on the second level but you can see everything from the first floor cause it's an atrium) was PACKED with people socializing. They popped popcorn every day(free again!!!) and the atrium smelled delicious for those 2 hours.
The view from the tower was spectacular and my coworker said the rooftop pool and jacuzzi were awesome.
There were 5 elevators that were ALWAYS available to take me up or down. Never waited over 30 seconds. I had to keep going to the desk because my cellphone disabled my room key and all three times the front desk was quick and efficient.
Location was excellent and the hotel has an inside entrance to riverwalk. It's on quieter section but a quick 3 minute walk took us to the action. We also walked 4 blocks to the Marketplace and the Alamo is right around the corner. We literally walked everywhere even though we had a car.
Just stay here and trust me, you'll love it.
