TownePlace Suites San Antonio Downtown
Ranked #117 of 357 Hotels in San Antonio
Reviewed 26 December 2013

I spent a lot of time researching hotels on or very near the Riverwalk for me, my husband, and our 17 and 18 year old sons. TownePlace Suites was very reasonably priced for a room with 2 king beds with a kitchenette and hot breakfast bar.
Our room was fresh, updated, and clean. The bedding, towels, bathroom and kitchenette were so impeccably clean and fresh. We have been to plenty of places where this wasn't the case. The bedspread was a lightweight cotton that probably gets washed after each guest, unlike disgusting spreads you don't even want to sit on, much less have near your face.
The hotel is only about a block to the Riverwalk, 2 blocks to The Alamo, and easily walkable to everything you'd need in a city.
We paid the $25.00 for Valet Parking, but the service was excellent and our car was safe, so we were happy with that decision. Our nephew, who met us at the hotel, parked his car in a 24 hour lot and fed the meter each day. I think it was about 3 blocks away, but he was happy with his choice as well.
Cons: The hotel coffee was cheap and tasteless, so I ended up walking to a Starbucks each morning for my fix, when usually I'm perfectly okay with hotel coffee.
Another thing was that the room was poorly designed. The ample storage drawers and 2 closets were nice, but every door, chair, and drawer interfered with the operation of something. For example, to go into the bathroom, the closet door and vanity drawer had to be closed; to open a dresser drawer, someone sitting in the nearby chair had to move out of the way. These were not deal breakers, but small annoyances for a family of 4.

Room Tip: We did not ask for any particular room location so we ended up with a suite that faced a wall, but t...

Close to the Riverwalk and restaurants. Breakfast is free, but get there early especially on the weekend when it's packed. The managers social isn't anything to write home about unless you just want snacks and drinks otherwise it's okay. Parking is $24 a day which worth it if you can afford it plan accordingly some people will call to have their cars brought around and hog the very small valet parking area forcing you to get leave your car in the middle of the street as the valet runs over to park it. The front desk clerk told us that sometimes employees park in the valet parking, because they don't want to walk...if this is true management needs to deal with this immediately as valet parking needs to be for hotel guest ONLY. We only had one issue with housekeeping 2 of the days we stayed here the housekeeper did not take out the trash or tidy the room by what I'd call basic hotel standards. On day two we called the front desk and the head of house keeping come up personally and took our trash.
The rooms are nice the kitchenette is perfect for when you don't want to eat out. Wish the trash cans were bigger and had trash bags in them to accommodate guest who actually use the kitchen. Plenty of table space. Beds are comfortable, sheets are light and don't have that over washed funky hotel smell to them. Overall this was a great value for the location for the amenities.

Room Tip: Get a room away from the back of the building there are a few bars behind the hotel that have noisy...

This Hotel is in a very good location, walking distance of the River Walk and Downtown San Antonio. It is clean and the staff is very helpfull and friendly. The only negative is it is a little noisy, had to sleep with the A/C fan on to drown out noise.

Room Tip: Ask to be above the first floor.

The hotel is located in a corner of a busy street, and the main door is literally in the corner, so it is easy to miss it. There is no place to park so a valet parking is a must. We waited hours to be able to check-in, trying to take a walk every time the lady at the counter was saying, "It will be ready in an hour." Nevertheless, several persons who decided to stay in the lobby got their rooms first, even if they arrived a lot later. After more than two hours we went to our room: the sleep sofa was never made, and they did not even leave sheets or a pillow for us to make it. The room was a spacious one, with a kings size bed, a small kitchenette, and a good size bathroom. We noticed that the bottom of the toilet bowl had residues of something that looked like vomit, that the house keeping missed and never cleaned. Our room faced a small street but the outside noise was loud. We chose this hotel because of its proximity to The Alamo, just a block from it, which is very convenient. They advertise an indoor pool, but it is not indoors, and the actual pool is more like a big jacuzzi. The breakfast, included in the price of the room, was not bad. This is the first and last time we book at this hotel.

My family and I recently stayed at this property to see the Riverwalk during Christmas! During our stay my daughter lost her retainer in the trash. One of outstanding staff members, Ruben S., dug through many bags of trash and found it! Rest of the staff was also very curious and helpful! When we come back to San Antonio, we'll definitely stay at TownePlace Suites.

We stayed here recently and enjoyed it. The location is great, very close to the Riverwalk and the Alamo, cheaper than the hotels directly on the Riverwalk, and while those hotels charge extra for things like WiFi and breakfast, those are included here. Also included was a fully stocked kitchen with fridge, cooktop, microvave, and dishwasher. Valet parking is offsite but they are quick at retrieving vehicles. Would definitely stay here again.

We stayed here one night, the night of the Riverwalk Christmas parade. The hotel is basically a hop, skip and a jump from the Riverwalk; there is no need to stay on it unless you just want to. There are local public lots but I always feel more comfortable leaving my car with the valet. In this case I believe the valet drop off is on Losoya, so we had to make a block. Valets were very nice. Front desk staff was nice too, but there was a problem with our room not being ready. We had arrived about 3pm. Fine, they stored our bags and we returned over an hour later. They had already given us room keys and we went up and the room was still dirty--food sitting out, totally uncleaned type of dirty. We went back downstairs, returned a bit later, still same problem. They ended up apologizing and switching us to a different room. It was a slight inconvenience but nothing to get worked up about. Pros: lots of space, small kitchen, sitting area, big shower, good toiletries. Cons: spotty WiFi, poor sound insulation. We did not check out the breakfast so can't speak to that. The hotel is pet-friendly. Overall, this hotel is a very good value and I would stay again.
