Built more than 100 years ago, renovated hotel is just steps from Alamo
The Crockett Hotel provides the best of both worlds: classic old-school charm with brand-new furniture and amenities. The hotel was built on the site where Davy Crockett and his settlers defended the southeast palisade of the Alamo during a 13-day siege in 1836. The Alamo is just steps away and guests walk to the nearby Alamodome or Henry B. Gonzalez Convention Center. The outdoor pool is surrounded with gorgeous landscaping. Guests indulge in a daily complimentary breakfast bar. High-speed wireless Internet is free.
Highlights
  • More than 100 years of history and newly renovated in 2007
  • A mere 18 steps to the Alamo
  • Within walking distance of many San Antonio attractions
  • Complimentary deluxe breakfast bar served daily
  • Free high-speed wireless Internet
Rooms

The Crockett Hotel was first built in 1909, and then added onto in 1927, there are varying floor plans, room styles and suites among the 138 guest rooms. All have been renovated in 2007 and decorated in shades of sage green and cool cream. Regardless of room type, all guests enjoy free high-speed Wi-Fi, Gilchrist and Soames bath amenities, in-room movies and video games, and room service from 11 a.m to 2 a.m.

Features

Ernie's Bar, on the ground floor of the Crockett Hotel, is a close place to unwind. Guests cross the street and use the spa at the sister property, the historic Menger Hotel. The Alamo Plaza spa offers massages, herbal scrubs, wraps, facials, salt glow and other body treatments. A sauna and pool are available as well. The River Walk location connects guests to a myriad of upscale dining and shopping choices, inside the Rivercenter Mall. Being 18 steps from the Alamo and on the site of Davey Crockett's stand will thrill history buffs.

Across from the Alamo

The room was clean and the hotel was quiet inside, although Friday and Saturday you can hear folks celebrating in the streets late at night. It wasn't too bad, though, and only lasted about an hour. The hotel is located directly across from the Alamo, which is worth a visit. The free breakfast is substantial and good—two kinds of scrambled eggs, boiled eggs, sausages, refried beans, pastries, cereals, juices, milks, waffles, etc. The staff is helpful and polite. I only had one issue at checkout and that was that I was charged for parking when I had no car. It took two days to reverse the charges. This is my second visit to the Crockett and I would book a room here again.

Location, location, location

Fantastic location- directly next to the Alamo and Riverwalk. Good breakfast. The negatives are the $20 (plus tax) valet parking and the housekeepers are very loud in the hallways. Only 15 minutes from Lackland AFB

Great Getawy

Hotel is in a great location for downtown. Hotel has updated but has keep with the charater of the building. Great value. River walk, Alamo and Shopping mall just across the street. Enhanced breakfast was great start! Rooms very clean. Parking, valet is $20, but this is typical for downtown. Valets were very polite and timely when you need your car. Several tours start right out the hotel. we foiund no need of a car once there. Nite time is really nice as the horse drawn carriages light up at nite. Great place for those who want to spend more time enjoying the area than staying in hotel room.

You can't beat the location!

The location is awesome! It is literally right across the street from one of the entrances to the Alamo. It's close to the mall, riverwalk and lots more. It was very clean, comfortable. Breakfast was more than adequate. If you are driving, you'll pay $20 for valet parking but that is the going rate for all the hotels downtown. Great stay, fantastic location. Would definitely stay there again. Ask for a room facing the outside. It's quieter than the ones facing into the lobby.

Shopping tip: Short walk from hotel

There is public transit (not the expensive tour buses!)that will get you many of the places you'd want to go. It's called "Via" and we used it a few times to go to the Market (El Mercado). It's a $1.20 fare one way but **here's what we learned on the last day** if you ask for a transfer pass, it's only another $0.15. So, a round trip bus trip from the Alamo to the Martket was $1.35 a person. Save those tootsies! (Kids are even cheaper!)

Great location for downtown San Antonio

Excellent check in staff. Small but clean and pleasant rooms. Extraordinarily well located for the Alamo and Riverwalk. No restaurant in the hotel but lots of restaurants nearby. Very high value for price. Plus whenever possible I stay in members of Historic Hotels of America of which the Crockett is one.
