Hadn't stayed at the hotel in 30 years and found it to be just a fabulous as we remembered. We asked to stay in the older wing of the hotel for the ambience and décor. The room was spacious and of course the bath was a bit antique, but very serviceable and clean. The shower was great, no water saver shower head. The room overlooked the garden and even in a drought it was beautiful. This hotel has everything you could wish for. Check out valet service was a bit chaotic, but not a long wait. The restaurant breakfast/brunch was incredible. You cannot beat the location, close to the river walk, shopping and historic Alamo Plaza. They said the ghost tours are really good, my daughter in law actually got a picture of a ghost on her tour. Fascinating. STAY HERE, we will again and sooner than another 30 years!
