I have stayed at alot of hotels in San Antonio...i.e. the Gunther, the marriot and this is the best. I was able to even have a conversation with the General manager...who wasn't a stuck up person. The breakfast is great!! I just wished they had Mile High Pie, other than that I love it !

The LQ Convention Center in San Antonio is a nice hotel, but not a great hotel. I was with a group for a convention and the proximity to the Convention Center is not the best in SA, but it was decent - about a 5 minute walk. It is directly across the street from the Rivercenter Mall and a few minutes' walk to the Alamo. The front desk staff were very nice and the rooms themselves are comfortable, especially the suites. I have a feeling this hotel converted to all non-smoking rooms a short time ago as some of the rooms and public areas still smell of stale smoke. Make sure when you make your reservation to specify that you do not want a former smoking room. Other than the smoky smell, the hotel was very clean. One other word of caution: the hotel does not provide hair conditioner or body lotion.
There is a good free breakfast buffet that is better than most hotels - eggs, sausage, toast, cereal, yogurt, and make-your-own waffles. There is also bar/lounge that opens in the evening.

We stayed here for one night in July in order to attend a conference in San Antonio. The proximity to the convention center was nice, and the staff was very helpful and kind. My only complaint is that the hotel reeked of cigarette smoke. I could smell it everywhere I went. But the rooms were spacious enough and everything was clean. Overall, I'd stay here again if I was in San Antonio.

This hotel is very clean and has a hot breakfast, which is a very good value. It is right near the River Center Mall, Alamo and the Convention Center. Trolleys and busses run a block away at Alamo Plaza.

Since La Quinta began in Texas, the quality of their hotels seems to be better here. It is very clean.

Each room has a refrigerator and microwave.

Although the staff isn't quite as knowledgeable as they are at a high end hotel, the San Antonio visitor center is a block away.
If you are independent and don't care about swanky lobbies, this is a good deal.

My wife and I stayed a Saturday night at La Quinta San Antonio Convention Center. We got a great deal on room for $55+ tax from Priceline. The hotel's location is great and very easy to find. It is right off I-37. The Rivercenter mall is right across the street. There is plenty of parking, but it is expensive ($16 self / $20 valet).

The room was a little dated, but clean and well kept. The bed was very hard and we were both sore the next morning. There was free wired Internet in the room. The staff at the front desk and bar was very helpful and friendly. A free breakfast is provided (waffles, eggs, sausage, muffins, cereal...)
