Delightful Surprise

This hotel is in a perfect location! You are close enough to the Riverwalk to enjoy the restaurants and shopping, but far enough away not to be involved in the touristy atmosphere. The trolley being right outside the door was a big plus.

Great Stay

There are so many great things to do in San Antonio. We ran out of time. We were impressed with the hotel. Nice staff, extras like Bath & Body in the bathroom, water fountain had orange slices in it, candy at the front desk and the best bed I have ever slept on in a hotel. The room was beautiful as well. Some may have thought it was too dark, but we loved it. No overhead lights, but plenty in the room. Was walking distance(two blocks) to the Alamodome, RiverCenter Mall, the boats on the RiverWalk and the Alamo. Also a short walk to the Towers of America. A trolley stop was right at the hotel and you could do the loop for a $1.10 or $4 all day pass. Parking lot is small, but they had parking available if full. Key card didn't work one time, but was solved quickly. Breakfast cost a little over $3 but was very good. We had a great stay and will be back.

Dining tip: Short drive from hotel

At the Mexican Market, we ate at one of the best places. According to a local, it is something you must do. We loved it. Building had tons of atmosphere, food was great, waiter was awesome, lots of pastry you can buy that was reasonable when you leave. They also come around and play and sing for you at your table for a small fee.

Everything was great!!!

Although breakfast wasn't free it was worth the very small fee, $3.00. Bed was the most comfortable ever!!! Staff was very helpful and friendly. We really enjoyed San Antonio in November, normally go during the summer. The riverwalk as well as Sea World weren't too crowded.

Sightseeing tip: Not Applicable

Took a boat trip to the new north part of the riverwalk, very much worth the trip for the beauty and uniqueness. Got to go through a channel! There aren't many shops or restuarants up there yet so eat before leaving the old part or take a lunch with you.

Great location

It was a great room but since we were on the ground floor, there was a lot of street noise outside. We had to keep the fan going all night to get some sleep. No free breakfast, but a good breakfast none the less.

Terrific Find

We were here to work a convention and enjoyed returning to our comfortable room to relax. We could walk to the convention center and didn't have to worry with parking problems. The nominal charge for the breakfast was outstanding. As was the hostess!

Don't ride Great White 2 times in a row.

We should have requested a room that was not on Commerce street right off the highway. We had no idea how noisy it was going to be!! We will know next time we stay. We will ask for a room next to the parking lot and not the freeway. Very nice staff and very clean.

Wonderful Time in San Antonio

The hotel was great and close enough to walk to the River Walk, but far enough away not to charge an arm and a leg. It was probably the most comfortable bed I've slept in, in a hotel.
