This is a perfect location when visiting San Antonio. Very nice hotel with very friendly staff. Everything is walking distance, The Alamo, Riverwalk, museums. Rooms are modern and very clean. Prices very reasonable considering most of the time you are out enjoying the city.

Great location on the quiet side of the Riverwalk and walking distance to most attractions. Easily walked to Alamo & The Market- these are opposite directions. Room clean, balcony was large & had a great view. I would definitely choose the city side because the actual Riverwalk side does not give you as nice of a view of the Riverwalk,...

Agree with other reviews here: the location is great, with close access to/views of the Riverwalk, the front desk staff helpful, but the room was adequate and quite dirty. I actually prefer the plank flooring and lack of carpeted surfaces – these are much easier to clean and *should* be much more sanitary as a result. When I called about...
