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.
