I had a great stay at this Hilton, and this was the first time I've ever felt like my Hhonors Gold status actually meant something! I was given free breakfast certificates at check in, a welcoming note from the manager, upgraded to a lovely room, 25% discount at their restaurants, and every time I made any kind of request it was greeted with a warm and gracious response. (Or perhaps they are just lovely and gracious to all their guests!) Special thanks to a wonderful front desk person named Leonor, who was exceptionally helpful, kind and welcoming!!
And the topper was that when I brought a convention colleague to the breakfast buffet with me (which was quite nice- it looked out on the Riverwalk and included made-to-order omeletes, lox, etc.) and expected to pay for her, the waiter absolutely INSISTED that I should NOT have to pay. He made a call to the front desk and they immediately gave me free breakfast coupons not only for that day for my guest, but for the remainder of my stay. Unbelieveable!!
The room was very quiet, and I'm wondering if that may be due to the fact that this hotel was constructed of individual concrete blocks (which you learn about if you take the River barge tour). Even though I happened to be there during the VERY noisy Fiesta San Antonio week, with parades and honking revelers in the street, there was no real problem for this rather noise-averse traveler. And as others have mentioned, the location of the hotel right on the Riverwalk means that you can step out of your room, zoom down the elevator in seconds, and step right out on into the heart of the Riverwalk and its lovely scene of restaurants, bridges, boats floating by, etc. This is a perfect location if you are attending a conference at the Convention Center or the Marriott, which are within a very short walk, as is the Alamo. Great place to stay!!
