Nice stylish hotel

Hotel is nicely appointed but a little dark. Bar is elegant with a great selection of boutique Texas liquors. Staff is friendly and accomodating. Great choices on room service menu. Would definately recommend. Did not recieve five stars because there is no concierge or pool.

A fine stay

We stayed for 4 days as our son was graduating at Lackland AFB Nice hotel. Great location by the riverwalk. Appears to be recently refurbished. Very dark lighting but well appointed. My biggest complant was parking your car was $29 per day. A bit heavy when the hotel charges are more reasonable. About 15 minutes to Lackland and an easy drive. We would stay again.

Great room - food service needs help!

The room was great. Very comfortable bed and a view of the Riverwalk. Having breakfast at the hotel restaurant was a disaster. It took well over a half-hour to get our food. We had ordered pancakes and waffles. The restaurant was out of maple syrup! They were unable to come up with any and they did not offer to change the order and did not ask if we wanted something else. All other hotel staff were extremely helpful and other amenities were good.

Mi Tierra restaurant was fabulous! Wonderful food, consistent quality and great variety. Mi Tierra has its own bakery and is open 24 hours a day. The bar had a fabulous selection of premium tequilas and a wonderful atmosphere. Even though they serve hundreds of people at a time, the service is prompt and efficient and you feel like you're visiting a small local restaurant.
