This hotel is highly rated on Tripadvisor and deservedly so. Number one reason - the price. I've consistently found the best deals for San Antonio hotels on the visitor's website below.
We were able to get a 3 night stay averaging $118 (before tax). With just a $15/night parking fee with in/out privileges (and no valet tips), we were saving at least $75/day over a comparable quality hotel elsewhere in the San Antonio riverwalk area.
So what is the upside/downside of this hotel?
Upside - very upscale furnishings and decorations, well maintained, clean. Exceptionally friendly and efficient staff. Excellent elevators that move fast. Tues. - Thur. manager's reception from 5-7pm with wine, beer, cheese, and appetizers (and the manager actually comes around and greets you). Excellent hot breakfast with waffles, eggs, potatoes, meat (ham, links, or sausage patties), free USA Today, covered parking. Rooms are suites with microwaves and fridge. Comfortable bed and pillows. Good showers. Good sized flat screen TV. No problems with noise from corridor or other rooms. Easy access (less than a minute) to get on highway. Very little traffic to contend with.
Downside - as other's have noted, 4-5 blocks from either the Rivercenter mall or the riverwalk. You do have to go under an overpass and we did notice a few homeless people perhaps a block away. But it's not nearly as bad as you might think since the portion of the overpass next to the hotel is blocked off for the covered parking and is only accessed by those staying at the hotel. A gate on the far side puts you past the overpass and on your way to the riverwalk. Some nits - shampoo/conditioner not replaced one day, wished TV remote would skip a lot of unused channels to make it easier to navigate, wifi is free but weak when you're far from door - like laying on the bed (you may have to move towards the door to establish a connection first). Room could be a bit humid.
We've stayed on the riverwalk a half-dozen or so times and were very pleased with this hotel and would stay here again. We saw a lot of families staying here and everyone seemed to be enjoying themselves.
