This hotel is more like a resort than a downtown hotel. The tree shaded pool, the peacocks and pheasants in the backyard and the fantastic workout room all make it a must stay place. Little touches like complimentary fruit in the workout room and coffee all morning were nice. We couldn't have been happier.

I travel to San Antonio every year for a large international conference and have stayed in a variety of hotels in the last five years. This one is the best so far. The staff were welcoming and helpful and always polite. The rooms are very spacious and my room had a balcony overlooking the convention centre and the Tower of the Americas. It's in a great location for conference attendees as its just across the road from the convention centre. It should also appeal to leisure travellers as it is very close to the Riverwalk and the city centre. I would suggest taking breakfast at the hotel - this was one of the highlights of my stay.

My wife was on a business trip but we combined it and took our grandaughter and had a wonderful week, visiting SeaWorld, The Alamo (only a $1.10 using the Red-Line Trolley), and the RiverCenter and RiverWalk (We visited the Marketplace on an earlier trip using the trolley buses or walking for the exercise)! The access to the highways (37,35,281,US 10) are all well-marked and easily accessible. We don't even consider staying in any other hotel in San Antonio. It is such a visual pleasing hotel, comfortable, relaxing and everyone is friendly! It is such a pleasure staying! Our room, which we requested, looks out on a verdant garden with a gazebo and beautiful pheasants strolling around the property. It has a king bed, a couch with a hide-a-bed and a refirgerator, whcih we had requested. The balcony has a table with two seats and some sail cloth giving a moderate amount of privacy from adjoing rooms. The pool and hot tub are quite and relaxing and even have an area where you might sit and read in the pool! The rooms are spacious and the beds quite comfortable! Hemisfair Park is across the street, La Villita only a block away, and it has a Riverwalk entrance in La Villita. The Henry B. Gonzalez Convention Center is two blocks and the RiverCenter is across the street from the Convention Center. The staff is always friendly, pleasant and helpful! We highly recommend it to anyone visiting the San Antonio area.

This is a great hotel that truly fits the atmosphere of staying in San Antonio. It is very near the heart of down town and all of the locations to visit are within a quick walk, such as RiverCenter, the river walk, the Tower, the Alamo and historic sites and all the great restaurants. The staff is enjoyable to work with and the hotel pool and courtyard is excellent to relax in with the pheasants and peacocks that add to this fine hotel location.

Plan on staying an extra day just to relax and take in all that this hotel offers.

There are three Marriott hotels on or near the Riverwalk in San Antonio. We travel to San Antonio often and have had our best stays at the Marriott Plaza. The service is top notch! If you are bringing children, request a balcony room viewing the courtyard. They keep beautiful peacocks that walk the grounds. The decor is in touch with the heritage of San Antonio.
Overall, you have a more relaxed atmosphere on their property. The Riverwalk is the local attraction and is within walking distance. It is also easier to get to and from this location as it is located on the edge of downtown. HIghly Recommended!

The service was very efficient and quick to respond to a request. Front desk people very friendly, efficient and always answered questions in a polite and helpful manner. Room clean, comfortable and enjoyed the balcony and being able to get fresh air.

Courtyard is relaxing and the two peacocks add a special atmosphere that I enjoyed.
Exercise area clean and up-to-date.

Food service and taste good.
