I arrived from Dallas with Megabus and the hotel is at just 5 minutes walking. The Alamo is also at about 10 minutes walking. The room was very big with a living room area with fridge and microwave which I used to eat something I bought at the reception (they sell some frozen dishes and drinks).

Very nice property, located one block from the Alamo and three blocks from the Riverwalk. Excellent spot to call base for visiting the downtown sites. I was here for the Alamo Bowl game between Oregon and TCU, and was about a 4 block walk to the stadium. All of the staff was very welcoming, consistent with all Marriott properties. Nice,... More

First time staying in this hotel and enjoyed it very much. It was located within a few minute walk of the Alamo (great to see this attraction and also as a landmark for those geographically challenged like me). Hotel staff were friendly, helpful and made great suggestions. When asked to make a reservation on the night of check-in, the next... More

I enjoyed staying at this property as the staff was very accommodating and the rooms clean. I asked for a fridge to be put in my room and had one within 30 minutes. The room was on the smaller side, but had everything that I needed and the price was great!

This Fairfield Inn was very clean and all of its employees were nice and helpful. It is also reasonably priced for the downtown area. It is near the Alamo and walking distance to restaurants, shops, the river walk, and in a safe location. We will definitely stay there again when visiting San Antonio.

You need to take out a mortgage to pay for parking. Great central location. 10 min walk to shops and The Alamo. Expensive hotel but very clean and quiet and comfortable beds. Very friendly and helpful staff. Standard breakfast, better than Motel 6, but not much better.

Dear BananaEggPie, Thank you for staying with us at the Fairfield Inn and Suites Alamo Plaza! We welcome both positive and negative comments to improve our quality of service for all of our guests.

We stayed at the Fairfield during the Fiesta di San Antonio during the summer of 2015. The hotel is centrally located, within walking distance of all attractions, including the Riverwalk and the Alamo. The rooms and bathrooms are fairly spacious and clean. The hotel offers free breakfast, which has a good selection. I particularly liked the Texas-shaped waffles! The only... More

This was a really unexpected surprise - a friend and I did a spur of the moment visit to San Antonio from Houston, and couldn't have been more pleased with this hotel and the location.

I stayed on the top floor over the pool and I never had any issues with noise. The staff at the front desk, housekeeping, valets, and breakfast person all seemed helpful and friendly. The location is an easy walk to the convention center, and close to the Alamo. I didn't use their valet parking, so I saved about $20 a... More
