Oh, how many times have I heard that expression since I’ve arrived in Texas but it seems that while this might be so with meals, friendliness of Texans, and cars or more to the point, monstrous sized trucks, this doesn’t apply to hotel rooms and in particular, the bathrooms!
That is, until I arrived at the Westin Riverwalk in San Antonio! The Director of Rooms, Danita Harth-Bates was very kind in arranging an upgrade for me and the room is huge with enough room in the bathroom to swing the proverbial cat! Just look at my photos! The separate bathtub itself was certainly Texan-sized and it was particularly welcome after staying at the two previous hotels here in San Antonio.
Good internet speed, very handy location and friendly staff, what else can we ask for?
As an example of this swift service, I ordered room service and the order was switched with another guests but once advised, they very swiftly came back with a replacement meal!
One side of this hotel looks straight out onto the river but unfortunately, not the side my room was on but my room did look out over the swimming pool but perhaps because of the inclement weather, no one seemed to avail themselves of it.
The hotel is in a very convenient location and easy walking distance to the Alamo which is a must to see for anyone coming to San Antonio. The excellent VIA bus service is very handy to the hotel and the busses were never crowded and good value! The bus drivers were also amongst the friendliest and most helpful that I’ve encountered anywhere.
The balcony off the lounge was good on the warm days and allowed fresh air into the room.
I'd thoroughly recommend this hotel to all visitors to San Antonio.
