This was an excellent hotel for my family of 7! The staff was extremely helpful, rooms were large, great location. Room service was excellent as well! Was a little nervous about staying here with small kids since it's listed as a haunted hotel...but no ghost sightings!!

I am a diamond Hhonors member and like to know what hotels do for such members and like it when others reviewers note that. Here, one gets free breakfast which is very good, but there is no executive lounge and being an older hotel not really great upgrades around either. Since it is a restored, older hotel it has cool...

The location can't be beat (Alamo is across the street), easy walking distance to Riverwalk and more restaurants than you could need. The folks at the front desk were very accommodating, and sleeping the room was easy and long. I can't comment on the rates, since we had a meeting rate that was very reasonable.

Had a great time staying here at this hotel. It is directly across the street from the Alamo, and depending what side you stay on you can look down into the court yard. Always heard this hotel was haunted-so looked forward to our first stay. We were on the 12th floor-supposed to be the best to see something. Slept like...

Stayed at this hotel with a hotel tonight booking. Would never pay over $300/night to stay here. Personally, I find it a great offense when hotels do not offer complimentary coffee to go. Despite checking out and eating at the lackluster buffet to the tune of $17/person, we were told if we wanted a coffee to go we would have...

I came to San Antonio for a 7-day stay for a conference. There are definite pluses and minuses to staying here - but they balance themselves out for the average rating I've provided. Here are my impressions: Pluses: -Located next to the Alamo -5-minute walk from shops/eats/mall, 10-minute walk from the Convention Center -Lots of windows/great views -Chaise perfect for...

A beautiful old style architecture building converted to a hotel next door to the Alamo. I had a room with lots of windows and a beautiful view of downtown San Antonio. Valet parking required but it was never an issue for me. Great service staff, clean room in a well maintained building.

Just steps. . .across the street. . .from the Alamo, this is now one of my favorite locations. Staff is excellent and friendly. Great lobby bar with an accommodating bartender that altered her drinks not to include citrus (allergic to citrus which is bad for San Antonio Mexican flavors). Our room was comfortable and roomy.
