I was in San Antonio for a conference. When the conference hotel was full, I looked around downtown and found Hotel Gibbs. I chose to Valet park, despite the high price, but didn't need to drive in town and I'd been to San Antonio enough times to know parking downtown is tricky.

My friend and I booked a fun overnight stay in San Antonio for New Year's Eve. River Walk hotels were filling up fast and were much more expensive than hotels off the River Walk. Hotel Gibbs is several blocks away from the RW, but we didn't feel like we missed a thing! It's 1

If you want to see the Alamo from your room this is the place. Otherwise is not worth it. Small rooms. Renovation was the wall paint and the photos of the city around the room and the hotel. I found a used bottle of water on the chair. There was no remote for the tv in the room.

Hello, Thank you for staying with us! I truly apologize that we failed to meet your expectations during your stay. Our hotel is located in a turn of the century office building where the majority of the original offices where historically renovated and preserved. I would love to speak with you in person about the other specifics. I again apologize for the experience you had at my property and look forward to speaking with you.

The hotel staff were unhelpful. The valet parking personnel were professional and helpful. The valet parking was the only good thing about this hotel. The taproom bartender, Fabian, was rude and questioned me about having the wrong day and time for us to get our vouchers for a

Hello, Thank you for staying with us! I truly apologize that we failed to meet your expectations during your stay. While the issue with the toilets was out of our control the other aspects were unacceptable and not at all the normal at our property. I would love to speak with you in person about the specifics. I again apologize for the experience you had at my property and look forward to speaking with you.

"Go somewhere else"
"The fifth floor room was very quiet."
"Junior Suite is huge but sofa bed is uncomfortable."
"Ask for an Alamo view."
"On the upper floors (6) A/C and Water Pipes both contributed to some 'noise' at night. You might check on that with staff."
