I stayed here out of sheer curiosity and found that the rooms were quaint. (That means small and cozy). There is a smell of must or old nursing home on the elevator side of the hotel, I can't place it. My room was clean and the staff were a bit stiff. Sometimes large city hotels that charge a lot think being too serious and dry at the front desk is professionalism, but it's not. I tied the room service, but it was not that good. limited selection and overpriced. (Again the San Antonio tourist thing). I love history and the bar was definitely historic. the bar tender was friendly. I did not meet any ghosts here, but I would have, I would have asked them to help with the bill since they stay there too.
