La Palmera

We are flying into SA in March & are staying at Riverwalk area but due to late flight in we are thinking of staying first night at La Palmera. Is this a bad idea or an OK place to stay?

Are you renting a car and not wanting to drive downtown late? Actually, I think it'd be more difficult to get to LaPalmera then it would be to get downtown. San Antonio is blessed to have a close-in airport which is a direct shot to downtown...20 minutes at most, and the downtown area is compact. Getting to La Palmera would require taking I410 where construction is ongoing, to I-35. In contrast, downtown is just a drive down 281. If you are driving yourselves, just map out your route beforehand, and you should have no problems.

I agree with the previous poster. The distance to La Palmera is about the same as to downtown and downtown is a straight shot from the airport. If it is late the drive into the center of town will be quite easy. The only thing you might save by staying at La Palmera is the cost of overnight parking downtown and if you arrive late the hotel will probably not charge you for the first night anyway, depending on the hotel you have booked. Just head downtown instead of the trouble of unpacking and packing again and heading to the Riverwalk the next day.
