In some aspects this hotel is a good deal: the rooms are really spatious with separate living room and bedroom. Each one has its own large flat screen TV. There is also a microwave and a fridge. Breakfast has plenty of options and complimentary coffe is available throughout the day. It is located within walking distance from the river walk,... More

Our room was very large with a seating area and a sleeping area separated by the bath, sink, and microwave and fridge area. There was lots of room to spread out. The hotel is very convenient to the tourist areas and was very clean. The pool was pleasantly cool and the whirlpool was hot. The hotel staff was polite and... More

We thought this hotel would be closer to downtown than it was, but we had a car so we drove. The desk staff were very helpful. The breakfast was more than adequate. If you wanted anything other than Pizza Hut, you had to drive. We also were on the 4th floor. We were really surprised to have two rooms with... More

Good, hot breakfast. Pool was not enormous, but was a nice size for today's pools. Very clean. Helpful and friendly staff, although not very knowledgeable about using the downtown trolley car system...or maybe they just weren't good at explaining it. There's a trolley stop only about a block and a half from the hotel, so once we figured that out,... More

We were upgraded to a suite on the newly renovated 4th floor. It was lovely and spacious, with nice bed linens and furnishings. The public areas were attractive and clean. Everyone we spoke with was helpful and friendly.

Over the years I have had multiple trips to San Antonio. I have stayed at this location many, many times. Have always enjoyed the stay and the staff was always helpful and friendly. Not to mention that I rarely did not get an upgrade on my room most always before I even got there. Excellent hotel stay(s)!
