Nice Hotel, very well located in San Antonio, easy access to everywhere.
The bathroom could be better with no bathtub and with bigger shower with more pressure and fast hot water.
Also the blackout curtains should "blackout" the brightness from outside ;-)
The bed and the pillows are excellent !!!!
Other than a Ruth Chris steak restaurant, ( which was the only option for room service) the hotel only had one other choice which was a bar and appetizers, and it had limited choices, and horrible service each time we tried going there we would sit and wait and no one would every come to our table. The lack of restaurants is the only negative, it is on the River Walk but we went in Winter for a convention and didn't want to walk around in the cold. The service at the hotel and staff out side of the bar/restaurant were exceptional!
This place is a time warp, but in a good way! Yes, it's old but very well maintained & clean... However, if you're used to wearing your silkies at the Embassy Suites (or the Menger Hotel), then this place is not for you...
We enjoyed our stay, and plan a return trip soon with family, and friends. The resturant had a classy appeal in the midst of the more casual riverwalk resturants scene. We utilized the spa while there, and must say it was quite relaxing. The spa staff were superb, as was the entire hotel staff.
Our only regret is that we didn't request a room facing the riverwalk. That said we had a beautiful view of a blank brick wall :( Maybe a nice mural or painting of the historic San Antonio area is in order ?
Minor issue considering the wonderful stay we enjoyed. Well be back !
Stayed here while we attended PAX convention. Hotel is an easy walk to convention center and Riverwalk. Quiet and clean. Would have preferred real eggs at breakfast instead of the egg patty things put out but waffles were delicious and there was fresh fruit.
The languid San Antonio River and its famed River Walk connect many downtown attractions, including the Alamo Plaza and HemisFair Park. Built for the 1968 World’s Fair, HemisFair Park is the site of the 750-foot Tower of the Americas. Visitors, though, won’t forget the Alamo, site of the legendary 1836 battle between Mexican soldiers and Texan secessionists. Nearby, Mexican goods fill El Mercado.
