The hotel

This is overpriced for the area even given the location. The lobby was freezing at all times, I'm guessing in the 50's Fahrenheit. The rooms were small and adequately clean. The breakfast was overpriced and close to awful. We will not return here when coming back to san Antonio. I suggest spending a little more money for a nicer hotel or… Read more

I suggest spending a little more money for a nicer hotel or choosing VRBO, the difference will go a long way! Read less

Was in San Antonio for business for a few days and chose this hotel because I'm Platinum IHG, but also because it is right on the Riverwalk. Chose a room with a balcony overlooking the river and was a nicely equipped room with everything one would need. When i checked in they upgraded me to a suite because of my status, which was great, and the room was nice, but ended up going back down and changing to a balcony room that had views of the river since that was why i reserved the hotel in the first place. Staff was quick to make the change. Go out the back door and turn left and 50yds down the river, turn left and youre on the riverwalk loop. 5 minutes and youre in the heart of it. Close enough to be close, yet far enough away that you don't have to listen to the hustle and bustle of the main commercial area where the restaurants and stores are. Did not use the restaurant/bar but when making the reservation it was part of the decision making process since it have bay windows overlooking the riverwalk. quick check in, clean room, modern snack area.

This hotel is on a great location for the Riverwalk. It is a short drive from the airport but the hotel does not provide airport transportation. The hotel is 2 blocks from a great small grocery store where you can pick up drinks and food to take back to your room. The room was good. Nice size, recently remodeled. Quiet.

This hotel is on a great location for the Riverwalk. It is a short drive from the airport but the hotel does not provide airport transportation. The hotel is 2 blocks from a great small grocery store where you can pick up drinks and food to take back to your room. The room was good. Nice size, recently remodeled. Quiet. We had breakfast one day in the hotel restaurant. Service was great and food was good as well. Overall, this is a good hotel. We were disappointed in the pool. It was small, not much deck space and it was surrounded by the hotel on three sides. We didn't use the pool because it was just over crowded. We would recommend this hotel to our friends and family.

Stayed there during the last business trip to San Antonio ( in May), location is great. Get off the elevator and within a few flight down the stairs you are at the Riverwalk, with great restaurants, bar and access to the river boat ride. Staff friendly and place very clean( inside). My dollar was well spent !
