I would go again in an instant!

My family went to San Antonio for a short get a way. We stayed at the Marriott because there was easy access to the street car trolly and you could buy a pass and ride all day. The trolly makes it very easy to get around San Antonio. The hotel was nice, the A/C worked and the were very accomodating when things did go wrong. The from desk staff were working for hard to accomodate everyone and I felt they did an excellent job.

Time-saving tip: Not Applicable

Get a trolly or bus pass for about 4.00 day and you can get on and off the bus and ride any where the trolly goes and it makes it much easier than having to drive, find a parking place, walk to your destination and walk back. Trollies are a lot easier and time saving.

Marriott Plaza

Very irritating that the whole stay had been paid in full but once I got there, they did not have my reservation in their computer system. I had to call reservation myself and get the confirmation information. The reservation was for 3 nights but after only one night I was told the reservation was for only 1 night not three. To sum it up. Not as organized as they propose to be.

Only one problem

Rainy,very cold weather for the weekend. Uncomfortable in room because the furnace was not working and was not repaired until 10 p.m. Friday evening. Other than that the hotel was nice, staff friendly and helpful.

May I Move In?

Our week-long vacation was split between New Orleans and San Antonio. After the horrendous experience in our "quaint, historic" hotel in the French Quarter, we felt as though we'd died and gone to heaven upon arriving at the Marriott Plaza San Antonio. The rooms and amenities were perfect, but the real stars were the Marriott staff there. In every department (front desk, bartenders, valet), they went above and beyond the call of duty to make us feel like honored guests that they wanted to return. When I return to San Antonio, this hotel will be my first choice.

Entertainment tip: Short drive from hotel

We were staying in San Antonio to attend a concert at the AT&T Center. Having never been to that venue before, we had no idea what drop-off/pick-up procedures were with regard to traffic. Next time, I will rent a limo or arrange for some kind of shuttle pick-up after the event. DO NOT RELY ON THE TAXI LINE!

Room cleanliness

The bath room floor did not seem to be cleaned on a regular basis. It took away from an otherwise very good stay.
