Not within walking distance (i.e., a mile or less) of River Walk/Alamo/cathedral, but more than worth the stay--in convenience, comfort, parking, and general security. The fenced property of the hotel was beautifully landscaped (pool area in particular) and continuously patrolled throughout the night (I know this because our paths crossed frequently throughout my many nightly walks--something I could not have done in the historic section where homeless/vagrants slept or wandered).
The high-ceilinged room itself was at least as attractive as photographed--immaculately clean, efficiently laid out. The tiled bathroom was not only huge, well-lit and -shelved, but supplied with thick, white towels. Everything sparkling. All the kitchen lacked was a traditional oven; otherwise, it had everything necessary for long-term living.
Windowed (and, again, immaculate) exercise room seemed fully equipped (weights, treadmills, etc.). Glass-doored laundry room (also windowed) contained FREE washers (byo detergent/bleach) and driers and was located off the main lobby across from the (again, free) business center supplied with computers/printer. Also off the main lobby were the lending case (blenders, slow-cookers, DVDs, games, , books, etc.) and a convenience store, which, along with free coffee & fixings 24/7, sold two walls' worth of a variety of frozen/canned/boxed foods, refrigerated drinks, personal hygiene and miscellaneous products.
