As an experiment, I traveled to SA via Greyhound, took a Metro bus to North Star Mall, and walked the remaining distance to the Embassy Suites. Antoinette at the front desk was friendly and efficient in getting me a 6th floor suite (my theory being that the elevator wait is shortest on a middle floor.) She seems to have taken this as a hint, and gave me a suite right next to the elevators.
The suite had a recent electronics upgrade, but I couldn't find any free wi-fi. (They may have it, but I couldn't find it.) Everything clean and well-appointed, a better-than-average shower, fluffy towels. Closets held ironing and food implements (fridge, microwave, coffeemaker) so I could have been quite comfy staying there several days.
Manager's reception had the usual snacks (chips & salsa, pretzels, etc.,) and I indulged in a draft Lone Star beer (brewed locally) to get the real flavor of San Antonio before dining in the in-house restaurant (if you lack transportation, there really aren't any alternatives within a mile's walk.) Waitress named Mercedes managed to cover a lot of tables and keep everyone happy.
Also important -- I never heard a plane taking off.
Comfortable bed, good hot breakfast -- you could pay more and not do as well as this hotel.
(The only downside was that the Business Center was closed due to water damage, but they had a computer and printer in the lobby as a fallback.)
