As many others have said, yes it's on the riverwalk and yes, it's about three blocks from the Alamo. They've updated the rooms with granite countertops, all the PC connections you could want and comfy beds. Internet speeds wifi or ethernet tested out to about 2 Mbps down/1 Mbps up and was free to me by being an HHonors member. I did not eat there, but the staff I encountered were helpful and friendly.
Trivia: What many do not know is this building has historical significance: all of the rooms were prefabricated offsite and lifted into place like giant Legos, already fully furnished before they were stacked up. I believe it was the first such building to be created this way, with the room-stacking part taking only 40 days, which was to get it ready in time for the 1968 Hemisfair.
