Good value

It overlooks the river walk but no direct access. Parking was valet and expensive. Rooms were large but needed some updating. The young woman who checked us in was superb!!! Better-than-average complimentary breakfast with eggs, bacon, etc.

Sightseeing tip: Short walk from hotel

Even though you have to go out to the street and down a flight of stairs to reach the river walk, it is still right there? It is a bit of a walk to most of the shops and restaurants on the river but very easy to do.

Good for business or leisure.

Was in town for a conference. Convention Center is a short walk, and lots of good restaurants nearby, so great location. Hotel rates were raised a bunch for the conference, though San Antonio is still more affordable than many cities. Booked thru a travel site and hotel wouldn't apply my stay to my loyalty club - so much for the concept of loyalty. Complementary reception and food is great M-Th but not offered F-Su. Hot breakfast is a plus. Rooms large and comfortable, Would stay here again.

Compare the shuttle vs taxi rates to and from the airport. If one person, the shuttle with advanced reservation round trip ticket is the way to go. If group of 3 then taxi is cheaper.

Not real special

Room not clean, carpets turned socks black with dirt, bathrooms not real clean, shower didn't drain so you had to stand in water. Pool is an absolute joke. Smallest pool I have EVER seen at a hotel. By the way, they filled the Hot tub with cement, so even though it shows one, it does not exist. Valet guys only real good part I saw. I stayed at Homewood in San Diego and it was freakin awesome. NO COMPARISON.

good location, average hotel

hotel was clean, service was good. Downside was that I could hear most all the traffic since it is adjacent to a bus stop. Fair value but no frills

The Fig Tree restaurant located near the other Hilton ( Palacio Del Rio) downtown offers excellent classic dishes (beef wellington, baked alaska etc) if you want to indulge yourself during your travels.

Not perfect but worth the price

The rooms in this property are large, clean and comfortable. It is near the riverwalk yet a little aff the beaten path. I wouldn't expect to eat and drink there but for the price it is a value and there is lots of places to eat and drink nearby. The staff was very nice and friendly.

hotel was fine, food was pathetic

Don't park a car here because the rates are ridiculous.You have a fridge in the room but there are no stores nearby. You have to walk several blocks to a liquor store that has some incidental groceries that are expensive, because you are downtown. The breakfast was okay. They had waffles one morning, but why was the waffle maker unavailable most other days? Eggs every morning but they tasted strange, I suspect powedered eggs. But not like Orlando where they had grits or hot oatmeal, as well as waffles every morning, and instant packets of oatmeal and dry cereal. This one had coffee, orange juice and skim milk for the dry cereal. The light dinner was the worst I have ever had at a Homewood Suites. One night they had canned corn, cold breadsticks, no butter, tough pepper steak which was frankly so full of gristle it was mostly inedible. The rice pilaf advertised was gone and not replaced wtihin the first 30 minutes. When asked about the missing rice pilaf, the lady in charge said "If you don't like it, tell the manager." Another night was supposed to be meatloaf with instant mashed potatoes. Is that so difficult to prepare? Dry, with no gravy or ketchup, it looked more like mystery meat with little rubber balls in it.I didn't know it was supposed to be meatloaf until I saw that was how it was listed on my refrigerator door. There was salad one night with two types of dressing. That was a highlight. They had frozen margaritas, beer, red and white wine. If you are interested in drinking your dinner, this is the place for you. In Baltimore their food at Homewood suites was actually good, with abundant choices. The food although not great every night in Orlando usually included a salad or soup so that if you didn't care for their main course, you could have something and then go out to supplement it at a restaurant. We were so tired on the day we arrived that we didn't feel like going far to find dinner. So we ate their food twice and were disappointed twice. This hotel is in downtown so there is a vast wasteland around it of office buildings. You can go up to Riverwalk at the mall area and find some chain restaurants but those restaurants are expensive for lunch. I don't think $15 for one hamburger is reasonable. We did find an area of town a few blocks up that is supposed to be an artistic area for shops where we found a Mexican restaurant that had a $5.55 lunch special of the day. You could pick from about 6 things as the special. You had to ask for the special menu because they did not offer it. But there was one sign that said lunch specials M-F lunch specials $5.55. These lunches which we ate there twice during our stay were great for the price and comparable to what we paid. At another place where I didn't even like the food as well we paid $20 each for lunch plate of Mexican food. Hope you like Mexican; that is mostly what they have in this town. The people are nice, and we rode the bus and trolley. People will tell you its only two blocks, but believe me though it is flat, they are long city blocks. I looked at the weather report. It was supposed to be 70 during the day and 40 at night. I packed accordingly. It turned cold and the wind was terrific so walking four or six blocks to get somewhere was not easy with only a light jacket. We have often chosen Homewood Suites because of the included dinner, but this particular one did just barely enough to be able to call it a dinner, and compared to the Homewoods in Orlando and Baltimore, I would have to call it "pathetic." We will rethink using Homewood if others serve food this poor and unsatisfactory and stingy.

Fun family getaway

The room was perfect and spacious. The location was ideal and made all our riverwalk excursions easy. We enjoyed all the restaurant choices and liked being close to both the Alamo and the movies. The rooftop pool and hot tub made for a perfect and relaxing end to our days.

If you would like to save money on parking be sure to use the parking garage across the street from the hotel. It will save you around ten dollars per day.
