    What a view!!! Tower of Ameicas lit at night! Balcony from room gives a fantastic view! Hear the music of the Riverwalk. La Villita is steps from hotel. Parking is not easy. Very few spots. Nice breakfast. Friendly front desk help.

    No restaurant on site but there is a pizza place next door. I do not think there are any suites or jacuzzi tubs. The balcony rooms do not have private balconies. Nice place but probably not for romantic getaways.
