        • Convenient to my business meeting site big and pleasant Hotel. Design style nice, freindly staff and employees are good. The room is too warm eventhough we turned down to 73 degree, the pool on the second floor is awesome.

        • Quiet location on San Antonio Riverwalk, nice Hotel and staff were excellent, best we've experienced downtown. Our room was comfortable enough and the food was great.

          Just clean towels and plus limited buffet menu. The facility looks very dated.

          Outdated hotel and not Worth the Money. Bathroom facilities for consumables meager, unfinished bathtub.

          The hotel staff were not equipped to accomodate the hotel guests for the breakfast buffet and computer connections were slow.

        • The location downtown was ideal, hotel was quiet and the staff were very friendly and helpful. The rooms were clean and breakfast was good. Pool & fitness were wonderful.

          Not 2 miles away and also the parking prices were ridiculous. The front desk was unhelpful and rude on several counts.

          The location is away from downtown, hotel a bit out dated and the elevators are dated, slow. The ice machine on our floor is broken, loud music, cursing, bottle breaking.
