The O'Brien is a great place to stay when visiting downtown San Antonio! Its less than a 100 dollars a night on Priceline, which is a steal considering just a block away other hotels are charging twice as much! Its within walking distance (1 block away) from the south part of the Riverwalk, which is where all the the best resturants are. Its also in a relatively safe and quiet part of downtown, which being a woman was important to me. The hotel itself is nice inside, and the beds are very comfortable. The breakfast is good, and the Texas shaped waffles are a cute touch to the contiental breakfast. The only downside being their isn't tables and chairs to sit down and eat, so you have to take everything back to your room (which can be hard to carry for the journey back up to your room). Also being a non-smoker I appreciated their no smoking policy through-out the building. The staff is also nice and accomendating. The Parking situation was another downside, they have every limited spaces so during busy times and holidays it might be difficult to get a spot. But overall I was very pleased with my stay at the O' Brien and will stay again on my next trip to San Antonio!
