Enjoyed the hotel. The word swanky, used in other reviews, seems to describe it well. Had a lot of nice touches, such as bathrobes, nice shower products, a magnifying mirror, a minibar, etc., that I appreciated! It is a bit dark inside, including the rooms. The breakfast room service menu is great, but the dinner menu is fairly limited (and fairly pricey). The walls are also fairly thin, meaning that hallway noise is easy to hear. One night I could clearly hear my neighbor's TV for several hours, though it may have been turned up. This was not otherwise a problem during late-night hours. My 4-day stay was, unfortunately, overcast with the horrible internet. I was traveling on business, and needed reliable, consistent internet in order to launch my work's virtual desktop system. The internet was slow, spotty, and kept going out completely, which made it near impossible to work. While this poor connectivity was apparent even when doing some light internet browsing (cnn and facebook pages even failed to load, or loaded slowly), it was hugely amplified when trying to do work remotely through the virtual desktop system. I will be traveling back to San Antonio in two weeks, and would love to return to this hotel, but will stay elsewhere due to this issue. If you're stay will only require some light internet browsing, I'd recommend Hotel Valencia. If you will be reliant upon a good internet connection, beware.
