never again

always liked Marriott but this one comes off the list for one reason: elevator service was beyond awful. this is a 25 story hotel with totally inadequate elevator service. Waits in excess of ten minutes were the norm. Walked 10 flights down on more than one occasion. Further insult: door to Lobby was locked so had to do emergency exit onto streets and walk to the lobby. What a total crock. Also internet was $13.95/ day. Can you believe that on a $200 room ? Self Park was $25. Is this NYC or San Antonio???

Spring Break 2010

The hotel was nice but not nearly worth what was paid. Several problems were are also experienced. The biggest problem was that there was always very little cold water and often times no cold water leaving nothing but very hot (scolding) water. During the night, the temperature in the room would vary greatly - we would be freezing then sweating alnight. The electicity went out in the bathroom twice requiring the hotel to reset a breaker each time. Lastly, the TV was almost always cutting-out on the local channels. The only good thing I can say about the stay was that the staff was super nice and the location was perfect for the Riverwalk and access to I37.

Dining tip: Short walk from hotel

We stayed 5 days/nights. There was only one-two days worth of shopping and site-seeing in the area but not nearly enough time to experience all the great food and restraunts on the Riverwalk.

Not much for the money

First off the room was very small. No frigerator,no microwave ,no machine for snacks available. On the positive side breakfast was more than expected more than you can eat. Bed was comfortable too. Access to the San Antiono riverwalk was perfect, I must say.

great location but small room

I didn't expect to get such a small room for a 4 stat hotel! It wasn't comfortable at all for 3 of us. We had full beds and it was barely enough room to walk. Also everything in the room was very old but clean.

Friendly & Clean

The hotel is in a great location & is well kept. The staff is friendly & helpful. However, the bed & pillows are very uncomfortable. The windows seem very poor quality since we heard street traffic/noise even being on the 26th floor.

Nothing to write home about

We were attending a wedding and looking for something that would be somewhat romantic for our stay while in town. Basically what we got was a run of the mill Marriott hotel that happened to be on the famous San Antonio Riverwalk but even that was an issue as direct access from the hotel was not available due to construction. All and all we would have been just as happy staying in a Courtyard and saving the price difference not to mention the $25 a night for self parking, ouch.

It was ok

The room was clean and the bed was comfortable. It didn't have most of the simple commodities that an average hotel has such as: no microwave, no mini fridge, and no table(just a work desk). In the end I was not impressed by the Mariott. For the price of luxury it wasn't very luxurious.
