mini getaway

Would recommend Mon, Aug 18, 2014
Enjoyed the hotel really nice and beautiful. It was close to everything! The only problems we had was the big black beetles in our room. One was on my pillow the first night!! Our sheets had blood stains on them. House keeping didn't give us another roll of toilet paper. We woke up the second night at 4 am to our neighbors headboard banging on the wall, they were getting it on too loud. And we got stuck in the parking area for a good 30 mins because the gate was not working. But other than all that we had a nice stay like the pool and the peacocks it was fun and beautiful. :)

Still good

Would recommend Mon, Apr 7, 2014
I stay at this location 6 to 10 times a year on both personal and business. For nearly 20 years this has been my favorite SA hotel. Even though there have been many changes from hotel brands to interior and staff it still consistently delivers a great stay. There are many great hotels in San Antonio but the Plaza is still my favorite!

Dining

Purchase breakfast with the room if available. It is one of the last good hotel breakfasts around.

Just OK - Marriott Can Do Better!!

Would not recommend Thu, Jan 2, 2014
OK option for one night stay for Alamo Bowl. Location was good. No working heat in room. No hot water in shower. And no hot coffee in lobby!!! If you are gonna get something right, make sure you keep your guests warm in the winter. Maintenance guy came up to check heat and fiddled with some "valves". He left and said he'd call back once the "steam" was working - no call. The ice cold tea and lemon water in the lobby was awefully tempting - except it was 40 degrees outside!!! Marriott can do better.

Attractions

Do not go to the Hemisphere Tower. It's overpriced and overrated. There are plenty of other cool sites to see in SA - the Alamo and the other missions (San Jose and Concepcion?).

I enjoyed my stay. We were not informed if continental breakfast or room service was available. Although I could of just asked as much traveling as I did it would of been nice for someone to remind me.

Nightlife hint

If you walk straight down Alamo st you CANNOT miss the river walk!

Unexpectedly Good Hotel

Would recommend Mon, Aug 13, 2012
This was a kinda a “spur of the moment” trip for the family to San Antonio (SA). We used a travel website that rhymes with “buybak” to start looking for hotel rates in the Riverwalk area of downtown SA. The Marriott Plaza San Antonio had the best rates and looked to be fairly close to downtown / Riverwalk area. Location – It’s within 3 – 4 blocks walk to the Riverwalk. There are stairs down to the Riverwalk behind the Hiton Del Rio (?). The hotel is 5 – 6 block walk to The Alamo. It’s an easy walk, and our family walked to the Alamo twice. We took the River Boat Tour also ($8.50/pp) – the ticket stand is right behind the Hilton (again, 2 – 3 blocks from the Marriott). Another poster wrote that the bus stop is right outside the Marriott – this is correct. The published rates were $1.10 per person to get on the bus, and I think the bus goes most everywhere in the downtown SA area. Staff – The staff at the check-in desk was nice. They had incorrect information regarding the hours at The Alamo, though. The valet / bell stand guys were really nice. The restaurant staff was the best – one guy even brought my daughter and me a muffin from the restaurant while we were waiting in the lobby for my wife and son. Just because he saw us sitting there by ourselves. Breakfast – Get the buffet breakfast – even better, if you’re offered the option of “adding breakfast” at the hotel for a $20.00 or so upcharge – take it. It’s a steal, and the buffet is really good. Made to order Belgium waffles and made to order omlettes. Hot food selections were bacon, sausage, fried potatoes, and hot oatmeal. Then your selection of cold meats and chesses including salmon and capers. Fresh cut fruit, cold cereals, and muffins, toast, etc were also available. By far the best value on the trip, and I urge couples and families with children less than 15 to take advantage of the “add breakfast for $20” option if it’s given to you on one of the travel booking websites. Room – Nice enough – two double beds, rather than two queen size beds. Room looked like it had been refurbed within the last 2 – 3 years, but the hotel was definitely an “older” hotel. The pool was nice, but there were quite a few mosquitoes about. Our children enjoyed it, though. We asked for more towels, but they were sent to the wrong room. One MAJOR issue I had with the room was that Marriott wanted to charge you $12 per day for internet service in the room. Internet (Wifi) was free in the lobby. This is simply unacceptable in 2012 to charge for internet in a hotel room – especially when it was available in the hotel. The room had a mini fridge, but it didn’t get real cold. If you have ice packs or you are carrying things that have to be kept frozen, do not rely on this fridge to do this.

Dining

If you book through a website, have a family of 4 or less, and you're offered the "add breakfast for $20" option, I would suggest taking it. The breakfast buffet in the hotel is very good, and for the price for an entire family (in one room) it is a good value I think.

Super Location

Would recommend Tue, Mar 13, 2012
Staff was generally helpful and professional. The room lacked a microwave, and the complementary coffee maker and fixin's were average. Location of this hotel is superb; 2 Blks from RW, 2 Blks from Hemisfair and tower of Americas and 2 Blks from Williams historical district. Lots of restaurants within walking distance.

Attractions

Bring your own coffee maker, coffee and filters if you're inclined.
