“Top Of The Line Retro Vibe”
Reviewed 24 February 2012

This hotel, part of the Hilton line, is a sweet stay. I loved the Mod-Retro decor and everything was clean and well cared for. Our suite was very large and quiet. Very nice bedding and comfy beds. They have a Salt Water pool, which is small; I don't think it's meant for kids, it has more of a 'spa soaker' design, with a large sitting edge (watch your knees when you first get in because you don't know the sitting ledge is there.) This is in a great location, with self or valet parking. We chose the the self parking and the price was super reasonable and convenient, right across the street. It's really a short walk and the elevators are on the street side across from the hotel. I agree with the 'green' hotels going over the top - getting pretty tired of having this as an excuse for less services, as this one with no conditioner or lotion- just shampoo and body wash, but Overall - we give this an Excellent Rating due to Clean - Beautiful - And Location. The staff was nice too.

Pleasant upscale Hampton/Hyatt Place like stay; limited toiletries but the mini kitchen was decently equipped. The lobby was really cold and everyone kept their coats on at breakfast including front desk clerks. We thought it was a good stay and well priced, but maybe not deserving of the many WOW! reviews we read on this site previous to our stay. The location is excellent - very short walk to riverwalk. It was a quiet stay, just nothing that special. If you are price conscious this is a good alternative to riverwalk hotel prices. We agree with other reviewers about the noisy HVAC system. Tip - Bohanan's bar is two doors down and a great place for a quiet drink.

My husband and I stayed in this hotel for 3 nights in February. We liked the hotel for all of the reasons stated by other reviewers, and would probably stay here again. The hotel has a cool design, is spotless, has a great location and the staff was extremely friendly and helpful.
We were however, disappointed by some of the "green" aspects of the hotel which made for a less than stellar experience. And we're not just talking about the "light touch housekeeping" (by request only on weekends) and request to reuse sheets and towels, which has become commonplace in hotels.

Here, the water temperature in the shower would get warm but not hot. There was plenty of warm water, it didn't run out, but was just set to a low maximum temperature, undoubtedly to save electricity. The flow of water, too, was barely acceptable.

Also, there was Neutrogena shower gel and shampoo in a dispenser on the wall of the shower, which I actually liked, but there was no hair conditioner nor body lotion provided. I asked at the front desk and was told, very nicely, that because it was a green hotel, they didn't want to provide anything in small plastic bottles. That's fine, but they could have provided dispensers, like the shampoo and bath gel, or packets which we have seen in other green hotels, especially now that these items are so difficult to carry on the plane. Instead we were told to go to Walgreens.

I expect more from a $170 per night hotel. I'm not sure whether my husband and I were saving the planet during our stay in San Antonio, or lining the pockets of the nice folks at Hilton.

We stayed here for a three day business trip. New hotel in an old building. We loved the modern, contemporary vibe of the hotel. A little on the Ikea side, but nice. Our king room had a sitting room, office space, and kitchen. No tub, but a walk-in shower. The hotel is a green-built hotel and was very clean.
Pros - Amazing staff!! Thanks to Eric who was spot-on with all of his recommendations! Location was perfect - very close to the Riverwalk without all the touristy stuff. We walked everywhere the entire trip. Loved ease of being downtown close to everything. Workout facilities were great, machines and weights. Breakfast was included in our price. It's served in the lobby; kind of an extended continental breakfast. Comfortable bed and quiet room.
Cons - because this is a green hotel, the vent in the bathroom runs contantly. The air was clean, but it was noisy enough that we had to keep the bathroom door shut. The pool/oversized hot tub could have been hotter.
Overall, we loved it and are already making plans to return!

The facility is new, has all the basic needs for a family. The location is literally 100 yards from the River Walk. We had a great experience and will definitely stay there again if back in San Antonio.
