Quick Business Trip

Other than a wonky elevator (the controls would flash all over the place and another guest told me they got stuck) the hotel is in a good location with a short walk to the river walk and Alamo. I have absolutely no complaints with the room and the staff I interacted with were all wonderful.

Fantastic experience

Hotel was in a great location. Only a two block walk to the rivercenter mall and a shorter walk to a bus stop. Great comp. breakfast. Room was very, very clean and was very big. One of the best hotels I've ever stayed in! Would stay there again.

Entertainment tip: Short walk from hotel

Instead of taking a riverboat tour which only lasts 50 minutes and costs approx. $8, buy a ticket for the river taxi. For $15, your ticket is good for 24 hours and you can ride as long as you want or you can hop on/hop off.

The hotel amenities, cleanliness, hotel staff and location were perfect for fiesta very close to the riverwalk, clubs and the mall. Great price as well I will be staying there for my next fiesta vacation. Just incase a car is required it's right off the freeway, perfect!!!!

Great hotel experience

The staff was very kind and helpful - my car had a flat tire and after getting it fixed, they showed a concern that all was well with it. They also were very helpuful in showing us how to get around to visit various sites. I certainly would stay there again!

Walking distance from downtown

The hotel was nice and clean. It was a short distance from downtown and the Alamodome for the concert I went to go see.
