Apart from charging for internet access (something that is an ongoing irritant in this day and age - why not charge for TV?), this is a very good hotel in a very good location, at the end of the touristy part of the Riverwalk. Extremely kid friendly - free breakfast buffet (plus made to order omelettes), free drinks from 5:30 - 7:00 in the evening along with snacks enough for a kids meal, nice outdoor pool, etc. Had a two bedroom suite - quite acceptable. Pick the valet parking if you need in and out privileges ($27/night) - otherwise park across the street for $15. Things get pretty seedy if you head south and west from the hotel - so stay in the tourist area for safety reasons, although there are lots of police around on bikes. The Riverwalk is a delight - head away from the centre on it for a good morning walk. Lukes is the restaurant in the hotel, although it is not affiliated with it, so you can't put your meals on the hotel bill. Food was good, although a bit pricey. All in all worth checking out if you are heading to San Antonio, especially with kids.
