great location, loved the history

stayed here for a concert across the street at the Majestic. Beautiful hotel, historic (Robert Johnson recorded there), just steps away from the Riverwalk and wonderful restaurants (Acenar was great!). Only problem we ran into was when all 3 elevators were repeatedly full so we took the stairs which triggered a silent alarm. Need better stair exits. Staff was wonderful, friendly and helpful. Would definitely stay here again!

Sheraton Gunther

The only reason I dinged it on cleanliness is not because the staff didn't clean the room beautifully but because the carpet was stained. But the staff are really so incredibly accommodating--it was great!

Nice historic hotel

The Gunter is one of those historic hotels that gives you a special feeling since the moment you check in. Personally, I love the old pictures hanging in the lobby and the old telephone switchboard near the elevators is fabulous. Once you get pass the lobby, room was clean and comfty, but average. On the plus side, bed was great. On the downside bathroom is a little bit small and does not have windows or odor eliminator system. Restaurant was above average, with a good breakfast. Had a drink at the bar which maintains the same “historic” feeling as the lobby, but with most tables being too small for my taste. Crowd was your usual business travel, just want a drink; so nothing very exciting. Location is quite good. With easy access to local theaters and riverwalk. If you get a good rate, I believe the Gunter is a good deal for your money.

Convention center conference

Pleasant walk partly along the Riverwalk to get to the Convention Center. 4 short blocks to the Alamo. Beautiful old style lobby, nice staff and exercise equipment. Riverwalk is about a block away.

Week in San Antonio

Staff was very helpful and friendly. Beds were comfortable. Carpets appear worn and stained in a couple places but not very noticeable at all. Bathroom very small with single basin but this is an old historic hotel so this is quite understandable. Restaurant was great!! Lobby is fantastic!!

Do not need a rental car if you stay here because the downtown area has a fantastic, cheap and easily understood Streetcar system...$4 a day unlimited rides on three different colored lines (Red, Yellow and Blue) with easy to read map.
