I stayed with my wife during our recent trip to Texas, upon recommendation from a friend.
This is a real gem!
It is very conveniently located on a quiet part of the riverwalk. It will take you approx 10 minutes walking to get to all restaurants & bars - a very nice walk.
It has its own bar & restaurant. Restaurant (called Ocho) doesn't have a lot of choice, but the food was pretty good.
The room was very charming, very nicely decorated, equipped with both a fan and air conditionning, and with a little view on the riverwalk. You also find a basket full of anything you could need (and more!) in the room.
The girl at front door was very nice, polite each time we spoke with her.
We really enjoyed our two nights there.
In order to give the fifth star, I would have enjoyed to find breakfast and / or parking included in the price - overall, it becomes a bit pricy.
And, the giant television antenna across the riverwalk is kind of an eyesore.
But this wouldn't prevent me from recommending this hotel to anyone visiting San Antonio! I'm not sure we could have found better.
