“Great place to stay for Fiesta events”
Reviewed 16 May 2012

We live in San Antonio, but dislike having to drive in to downtown for all the Fiesta events. We decided to book a hotel room for a few nights and stay down on the river and relax and enjoy ourselves. Being Hyatt Diamond members we naturally looked at the Hyatt. We found the Hyatt Place on South St. Mary's and decided to give it a try. We were very happy with our decision. The staff was great, friendly and efficient and surprised that we lived in SA and still booked a hotel downtown. We had tickets to the River Parade on Monday night and the hotel was a short two block walk from our seats. We had dinner at a restaurant on the river and then enjoyed the parade. We wandered around a bit after and then walked back to our hotel. Lots of people around enjoying the beautiful weather. Great evening. The next morning we had their included breakfast. On par with most free breakfasts at other hotels, nothing to write home about, but comfortable dining area and friendly staff.
Our room was large and overlooked the river, which was nice. Parking was good. We would definitely stay here again for downtown events.

... I've ever stayed at. As a frequent business traveler and a Hyatt Gold Passport Diamond status member I've been to many hotels as well as many Hyatts. This one, hands down, was the worst I've ever stayed at. The sales staff was discourteous and argumentative. The management was not present and non responsive to my requests for contact. Overall, an incredibly negative experience with the hotel management and therefore the hotel.

The only positive I can share is the good service given by the gallery hosts. Otherwise, my experience was so poor it has tarnished my view of all Hyatt's in general. If ever return to San Antonio I would stay at any other hotel than this one. One rotten apple...

I have stayed at other Hyatt Place hotels and was pleased so I decided to give them a chance on a recent trip to San Antonio. Nice hotel. Friendly staff. Good discount rate. Free parking in the lot out front. Very good high quality breakfast - better than most hotels by far. Good coffee. Like all the Hyatt Places they have a small bar and cafe in the lobby that offers simple fare 24/7. It is located directly on the Riverwalk per se, but far from the action. Their section of Riverwalk is attractive with trees, etc. but it is about 1/2 mile walk to the busy sections where the shopping and restaurants are. Most guests would likely walk a few blocks down the street to get to the action spots. I can see where the other reviewer said that a single female might feel uncomfortable doing that, esp. at night. The walk would be too far for anyone elderly or with kids that cant walk far. However, the walk will save you an average of $20 at night as that is what the other hotels charge for valet parking. The room was very large, had a desk, wi-fi, big flat screen, good AC, microwave, quality in-room coffee, a decent mini-fridge. Everything was nice, fresh and attractive. I like the idea that they provide real glass and real mugs for drinks, even at breakfast they have real plates and silverware - not styrofoam. The room cleanliness was average as there were a few long hairs in the tub. Yuk. The bathroom is very small. A large person or someone wrestling with kids in the tub might find it way too small. Overall our pleasant was good. Quiet. Nice hotel. Nice grounds. Good views to their section of Riverwalk. Nice jasmine trellis on that side. I would stay here again if I were looking to save the parking fee and was okay with the walk. If you want to be steps from the action and are willing to pay the valet fees you might want to chose somewhere else closer.

We needed an inexpensive room for 5 nights as we were in town for a tennis match. I have stayed at La Quinta on the Riverwalk for slightly cheaper but the Hyatt Place was much nicer. The rooms were huge....almost too big. More room should have been given to the shower/toilet room. It was very small. The staff in the hotel were very professional, helpful and courteous. Jasmine and John introduced themselves and gave us a brief tour of the facility. The parking was free (a huge plus for that area), free breakfast and free internet room with printer. WiFi was also free. There was also a small pool and work out facility. The location on the Riverwalk was great. A short but pretty walk down to the main hub of stores and restaurants. The breakfast was much nicer than the usual fare. Loved the cooked oatmeal with nuts and dried fruit.

Room Tip: ask for a room higher up than 3rd floor facing the Riverwalk
