This was my 3rd trip to San Antonio this year, and my 3rd stay at Drury Plaza Riverwalk. This time I reserved a 2-room suite in the original hotel tower.
The room was great---very comfortable & roomy. Bed was excellent, and it was nice to have 2 flat-screen TV's in the room---one in the bedroom & one in the living area. Also nice was the full-sized fridge/freezer (great for storing ice for drinks & freezer-paks for the ice chest). The A/C in the room was WONDERFUL---we kept cool the entire time in the room. Can't say as much for the lobby/elevators/dining area---they were uncomfortably warm this visit. (It was 106-108 degrees in S.A.!!) We were really sweating at breakfast & 5:30 "kickback" time ! Also, the wait for elevators was longer during our stay; at least one lift was out of commission this time.
The front desk people & garage attendants were wonderful to deal with; it's nice to know they appreciate you staying at their hotel (which is a refreshing change from many hotels who couldn't care less if you stayed with them or not !)
Only 2 things didn't meet my expectations this visit: 1. the carpet in our suite was due for a replacement--it was pretty "shop-worn" and showing lots of wear & soiling, and, 2. the bath towels are STILL those 86% cotton 14% polyester blends---which just push water around, but not dry. The bed linens/pillows and bath toiletries are top-notch, why not the towels? It's time to step up to the plate & go for 100% cotton bath towels. This would really put the Drury Plaza Riverwalk Hotel on the "top-shelf" !!
