This is a fantastic place to stay in San Antonio. It was a short, relatively inexpensive cab ride from the airport. We took the airport shuttle bus on the way in, but found out that a cab is about the same price, so we cabbed it on the way home. You really don't need a car and parking is difficult in this town. It's a short, safe walk to the entrance to the Riverwalk in one direction or out to the King William District in the other direction. We had a one bedroom unit with a terrific view from both the bedroom and living room windows. We had a small balcony where we enjoyed our nightly cocktail and listened to the water falling over the spillway and watching the lights come on as the sun set. The furniture and decor were very lovely and looked to be very recently updated (but they are scheduling a redecoration, as shown in the lobby...maybe our unit had just been done). The kitchen was equipped with everything that you could ask for or need if you decided to do some meals in the apartment. But with so many great restaurants, we only did breakfast. There was a lovely Jacuzzi tub that was pristine clean and we enjoyed it several times during our stay. There was a separate shower stall and two separate sinks. The living room couch and chairs were comfy and we had large screen TVs in both the living room and bedroom. There is a small dining table with four chairs or you can pull up a stool to the granite breakfast bar. We had a washer and dryer and dishwasher, too. The staff here were very friendly, knowledgeable and helpful. The shuttle bus runs regularly and we used it a few times to get around town. There is a small deli/grocery right next door to pick up the essentials and the staff there were great, too. There isn't a restaurant on the property and I don't think there is room service, but local places will deliver (so I did not rate the restaurant or room service...it's not a "no star" rating, it just isn't there). There are several good local places to eat if you don't want to do the Riverwalk every day/night. Try the NY Pizza joint a block or two away for some great NY style pizza, as good or better than what we get here in NY. The eatery on the corner across from the San Fernando Cathedral has a HUGE cowboy breakfast, if that is your thing and a great value for the money. Don't miss the Cathedral...that's where the remains of the Alamo heroes are said to be interred in a small sarcophagus in the Cathedral vestibule. The roof top deck and pool area looked very inviting, but we never took advantage because there was just so much to see and do in the six short days we had there. Check in was fast and easy as pie. We arrived early but were shown to our room within 10 minutes of arrival. We were provided with maps and coupon books with lots of discounts. We spent a lot of time walking around the loop of the Riverwalk enjoying the music and great restaurants. It's a terrific experience when the local Air Force staff get their passes to come into town. We saw so many proud families with their sons and daughters who had probably just finished their basic training and were celebrating their "graduation". Go out to the Market on a Sunday and watch the local dance troupes in their colorful costumes. We took the package deal for a Riverwalk boat ride, bus tour and the whole Alamo experience. If you have time, go out and see a few of the Missions and the King William District. Try the Gunther House there for a wonderful leisurely breakfast and don't miss their strudel (to die for!). La Villita is a must see, too. This is a great walking town and the La Cascada was a perfect home base. Clean, comfortable and convenient. We loved it! We are Wyndham owners and increased our annual points while we were there. The sales staff were not pushy (we declined the meeting and we weren't hounded). But this place was so very nice and we had such a great experience, that we decided to make the additional purchase on the day we were leaving. Brandon made the upgrade simple and easy and provided us with a lot of great information about how to make the best use of our membership. But if you aren't interested, just say no. It won't change the way you are treated. The staff here was great! We hope to return again to San Antonio but they tell us it is brutally hot in the summer. Maybe next spring to see the blue bonnets (or is it bluebells?) in bloom. They say they were spectacular this year!
