We visit San Antonio 2 or 3 times per year and try to stay at a different hotel each time because there are so many of them to choose from! On a whim, we decided to take off for the 4th of July weekend for a quick getaway. I put a bid on Priceline and this hotel came up. I had never stayed there before so that was a treat. It is a small-ish, all suite hotel in a low-key building. We had to circle the block once to find the entrance since our GPS put us at the loading dock. :-) Our room was on a corner and I have a feeling it was one of the smaller ones (being a last minute thing) but it was still excellent. I loved the brick walls in the "living room" and huge, deep sofa that pulled out into a bed. There is a flat screen TV in both the living room and the bedroom, with a desk and chair in both places, along with a separate chair with a reading lamp. The bathroom is in the hall between the living room and bedroom and was adequately roomy, but not huge. There was a bar/refrigerator area outside in the hall. I agree with another poster that it would have been nice to have water in the bar area to fill the coffee pot while someone else is taking a shower, but that's a minor complaint. If you take the elevator to river level, you can step right out onto the Riverwalk, even though the hotel is in a quieter area, it's easy to get to all the restaurants and shops just around the corner. I highly recommend this hotel and plan to stay there again if I can get the super rate I was able to get from Priceline! :-)
