My husband had to travel to San Antonio for a few days for work so my son and I decided to tag along. I was a little nervous beforehand, because I knew I had to keep a toddler entertained all day and in a hotel of all places. Not the easiest of tasks! Needless to say, I shouldn't have been worried! The location is great and there are numerous shops and restaurants around. I also noticed on the way in that there is a Top Golf and iFly very close by. Two things everyone needs to try! The complimentary breakfast was great and full of things my kiddo would eat. I even had to ask a member of the staff to keep an eye on my son for me so I could fix our plates. She happily obliged and this momma is so thankful. The rooms are very nice and clean. Overall, I am very pleased with this facility and wouldn't mind staying here again.

Great hotel near shopping and plenty of good restaurants, This is a pet-friendly hotel and we asked for a room where there were no pets. We were given a great suite on the top floor. Service was outstanding. We stayed there on the first night of a Houston-California trip and also on the last night on the return. Right off I-10, easy on-off.

Nice facilities, very modern and comfortable. Staff is friendly and efficient. Rooms are spacious. There's 3/4 kitchen. Refrigerator, stovetop, microwave and dishwasher. Everything you need is there from dishes to dish soap. The only thing you need to do is turn on ice-maker upon arrival. They don't have ice machines in common areas, like some hotels. The pool area is nice. There are sunny and shaded areas. Loungers and tables. The pool is saltwater and fairly large, there is no hot tub. Breakfast is good. Everything you would expect from a free breakfast and more. There are hot items such as sausages, scrambled eggs and biscuits and gravy, in addition to what you would expect to find: cereals, yogurts and fruit. There are waffle makers with all the bells and whistles and good coffee with soy milk offered. (My sign of a good hotel) Most impressively, the breakfast area manages to stay clean, even at peak times when families are bustling about, excited and anxious to get to nearby theme parks. Everything you could possibly need is nearby. Probably not walking distance. But too many stores and restaurants to name are within a mile of the hotel.

Being a Marriott rewards member I always expect nothing but great service and this location went above and beyond. Very elegant. Very well taken care of. Amazing customer service. All the employees were attentive and welcoming. Breakfast was wonderful. Besides all of that the location is perfect. Stores near by have a great variety. Restaurants - so many to choose from. I was very impressed by my stay here and will be staying here from now on every single time I come to San Antonio. Thank you Marriott for the amazing experience.

We stayed for a couple days for a wedding. The room was large with separate space for seating, kitchen and small kitchen table. The kitchen was well appointed with an apartment sized refrigerator and all the appliances you'd need. Nice complimentary breakfast - with quite a large selection. The only thing I was disappointed with was that to get a Starbucks, you had to go next door to the "sister" property. I went over in the afternoon to get a mocha, and stood around for quite awhile with no one to ask - and no "hours of service" listed. I had to wait while a large group checked in to ask the front desk about getting some coffee, only to be told it was closed. It's apparently only open during the morning hours - too bad they don't have any signage to that effect. I think the bar was next door too, but we didn't utilize that since we were at wedding functions each evening. The pool is also shared between the two "sister" properties.

Very friendly hotel, brought my family here and really enjoying it. Really close to Six Flags and to any shops you want to do for yourself as a Mom. Really like the location a lot and no traffic and great restaurants around

My company booked this room for a conference that I was attending. It is very nice, as most Residence Inns are. I had a king room that was clean. My view overlooked the pool. It was cold in San Antonio, so there was no dipping in the pool. I used the gym. It was small, but sufficient. The morning breakfast was a plus. Each morning it was hot and fresh. There was a little problem on the Friday of my stay as there was a water main break so water was not available form 11AM until 3PM. Luckily, I was conferencing all day, so I missed that. My room was quiet. I did not hear any noise.

We stayed at this property just after they finished renovating it, and it looks great. The lobby is attractive and comfortable, with lots of sitting areas. The hotel has some nice extras, like outdoor patios and comfy lounge furniture. The pool, which is very pretty, is also heated. Here in Texas, cool nights can keep you out of a pool until June unless it's heated. Our rooms were on the top (6th) floor, so we had nice tall ceilings. We have stayed at the Springhill Suites, which is very new and close by, and of the two, the Residence Inn is the nicer hotel. We got an off-season rate of $104 on the Marriott website, a terrific deal. Service was warm and friendly, and our rooms had everything we needed. The Rim shopping center is down the street with many restaurants, bars and a movie theatre. Downtown San Antonio is a 15-minute drive without traffic.

Clean and very close to Shopping and Six Flags. Room walls are thin so do expect to hear noise at all hours of day. Staff was very courteous and informative. Restaurant serves hot breakfast and evening mixers are a plus.

The hotel is going through a few renovations. We had a small problem during our stay but was handled really fast. The rooms were clean and the staff was very nice. The breakfast was hot and made for a great stay for the kids
