Location is great Could not accommodate our truck - had to park off site.
How close it was to the river walk. The smell on our floor and room size.
Housekeeping was fast. Location on the river walk was very convenient. The room and bathroom were very small. There was also a very strong scent of perfume that was overwhelming when you walked into the hotel. We noticed it every time we came into the hotel during our stay. It was almost nauseating. Parking was expensive. It was the week of Thanksgiving and the front desk seemed to be severely understaffed.
Location, easy to find, by riverwalk. Oh, the people working there, OUTSTANDING IN EVERY ASPECT! Nothing, would stay there if the prices were better!
Hotel had lots of activities planned for families and kids, including egg hunt and wake up call by the Easter bunny. Super friendly staff and very clean. Excellent access to the mall and food court area for those that like different tastes on a budget, but also quick access to very nice restaurants as well. Some of the activities were at the other Marriott across the street
The hotel was great and the staff was nice as well by accommodating you with the services and room. We had a great view and we could just walk downstairs to the river walk. The river walk was close but the places we wanted to go to were further than expected. Overall the San Antonio Marriott Rivercenter was great especially since it has a mall right down stairs. I did not like that you had to pay for parking. Your paying a price you would think that that would be included. Also there was no mini fridge in the room for food.
Near Convention Center. Bathroom was not clean.
From the complimentary brunch at Ruth Chris, to the friendliness of the staff, i am impressed everytime i come here.
Location was right no the river. Beautiful Lobby Rooms were very comfortable, awesome view of the tower. Valet Parking was $37 + Tax = $40.00!
I loved the location. Steps from the river and the mall. My room had way too much wear and tear. The head board was all scratched up. The tub has cracked and rusted and was clogged up the water would not drain when i took a shower. The door handle was at 5 o clock instead of 3. The room did not feel like a Grand Hyatt room. It felt like i was at a cheap hotel. I suggested to the manager that that room should not be occupied untill it get fixed.
The room was small and we couldn't even upgrade
The staff was very friendly, helpful, and professional. Train noise in the early morning hours outside the hotel and noisy visitors next door and down the hall.
I didn't like that when checking in they ask for my credit card again after I had already paid $857 online. Not knowing that valet was not included they kept trying to swipe different amounts to charge and blocked my card for suspicious faudulent charges. Terrible communication cuz they could've asked me what card I wanted to use, nothing. Also valet customer service was horrible while my sister was arriving in her vehicle with my nephews she asked for help carrying her luggage off and was ignored by valet. He could've called someone for help, but definitely not worth the money, never again
The service from the hotel was very much as I would of expected. As soon as in pulled I to valet, the valets were very kind to not only greet and open the door, they immediately unloaded the car and took me inside to check in. With warm greeting from the staff, I was very impressed with how clean the entire hotel was in addition to the room. Great service and defiantly will be back One if the employees seemed to have a little bit of attitide considering that all I asked for was to have shaving cream sent to my room. Other than that, everything else was fine.
Location is adjacent to convention center, staff is very professional and strives to make you feel welcome. Rooms are clean and everything worked. Rooms are dated with sound transmitting walls. Amenities are business travel grade without the higher end amenities expected for the price.
Very nice accommodations. Breakfast buffet was understaffed, was not explained properly
Everything, but the outdoor smoking areas were in direct sun or behind pool area that had no air.
Beautiful view. Very peaceful. Didn't realize there would be 60$ charge for parking
The hotel has a great location on the riverwalk in a quieter area next to the mall. The room we had (handicap) was very large, and the bed was comfortable. The lobby was nice, there was a starbucks in the lobby, and the food at the bar and restaurant were good. This was one of the biggest hotel disappointment I've had in the past. year. I traveled over 200 days in the past year and stayed at quite a few different hotels, so I don't say this lightly. When we first walked into the room (905 handicapped) the bathroom stood out as an eyesore. It was at least 5-10 years past when it should have been renovated. The grout was multiple different colors that made it look like it could be moldy, the wallpaper was peeling from the walls, and there was a general lack of craftmanship in the way it was constructed. The final straw was when I went to take a shower, and the shower head connection was leaking and spraying water in all directions. It wasn't just a loose connection, because I was unable to stop the leak. This is something a guest should never have to deal with at a chain like the Marriott. I asked the front desk to be transferred, but because it was a busy time the only available room was the room below us (805). This bathroom was in slightly better condition, although there were a few cracked and chipped tiles. Although the shower head worked, it was a very low end and cheap looking model. The bigger problem was when my wife tried to take a shower the first night, she was unable to maintain a constant water temperature. It would alternate between cold and very hot. She showed me how red her feet were, and I can only imagine what sort of a problem this could pose to an elderly or handicapped person. The other problem was the terrible tv reception while we were trying to watch the sugar bowl in our room. It would constantly blur or pause, making it nearly impossible to watch the game. Fortunately or unfortunately, the reception on the large tv's at the bar was fine. In summary, this is not the type of property I would expect for a Marriott. For the time around the new year the value wasn't bad (just under 200) however I would have preferred to spend 50% more on a room that looked like it had been renovated in the past 10-20 years. In the past year the only time I have experienced bathrooms in this sort of condition were in $50 rooms in towns with less than 5000 people. Buyer beware.
Location was good, close enough to the river walk. Hotel had a historic feel which was great. Small parking lot next to the hotel, because of the lack of space I had to park a block away in a different parking lot. However, I didn't have to pay.
Three blocks from the convention center, good-sized quiet room, friendly staff, and a great price through Kayak. I'd certainly stay there again. Little things: check-in took 10 minutes, which is way too slow for an existing reservation. The breakfast was fairly limp, even if free, although the hours were good. Not enough electrical outlets. The shower head was not as full as desired. And I was disconcerted to walk into the lobby at 1 p.m. to find a man being handcuffed on the floor by police. Apparently he had been pan handling in the foyer. Disconcerting.
After a truly appalling experience at the Red Roof nearby, Kayak got me refunded and rebooked at the Best Western. It was clean, new, quiet, comfortable, and close to the meeting center at the Hyatt. The room was comfortable and pleasant, decorated in craftsman style. The only reason I didn't book in the first place is because the BW Sunset Suites didn't show up in my search. It struck me as odd that no BW hotels showed up on the map of the downtown area. Next time, I'll just go straight to the BW web site perhaps. The in-room Wifi worked well, unlike the Red Roof or Marriott. The breakfast menu was varied and fresh each day and the room had plenty of space. In short, this is the experience I have come to rely on at Best Western and I won't bother looking anywhere else.
The hotel is generally clean. No whole wheat bread or healthy options. It may just be a Texas thing. Also, don't ask them to call you a cab. They have an insider deal with a lady who picks you up in an unmarked car, cannot keep quiet during the ride, and makes xenophobic and racist statements about yellow cab drivers. She also charged me $10 more than the standard rate.
I loved the atmosphere of the hotel. It was very clean and the staff was very helpful. It was our first time to San Antonio and they gave great advice as to where to go ! I would come back again ! It's not really anything they did it was more confusion on my part. I saw the river walk title in this hotel and thought we were going to be down town and really close to the riverwalk. We were about 1 mile walking distance. But still a great location and easy to walk places :)
The room was clean and beautiful. The staff was friendly and accommodateing. Breakfast was great with real food not powdered eggs and plenty. A short walk to the river walk. We parked our car and didn't use it again until we left. Great place to stay we definitely will be coming back.
Perfect location to attend my conference at the Marriott. Such great rooms @ a better price. Less than a five min walk to Marriott & Riverwalk. Warm & friendly staff. Clean. Good breakfast. I have no complaints. I was very pleased with the service, rooms, cleanliness, location, and the price.
Very convenient walking distance to Alamodome Noise problem between rooms and outside traffic
Convenient location. Room comfortable enough, and quiet. They had glass glasses. WiFi. Very slow - up to two minutes for search results, and forget streaming. I will not stay there again for the terrible WiFi alone. Couple that with the fact that the front desk lost my credit card number TWICE, and I still don't have the receipt they were going to email. And you'll want to bring your own extension cord. This for $160 a night and an addition 16% in tax? Not me ever again.
overrated for a plus hotel. This is an old hotel that badly needs updating. For downtown San Antonio this is a terrible location.
Liked the atmosphere and the clean rooms... Brenda at front desk in the evenings was especially cordial and kind...whole staff was very nice...was a nice stay
Staff very friendly and helpful. Great location across from Convention Center. Close to Riverwalk. Cool and quiet room perfect respite from summer heat.
Location Furniture is old and chairs look like they will break if you sit in them. All the upholstery looks dingy and dirty. Cracks in walls and floors. Poor overall look.
It was nice knowing that we were staying in a hotel 110 years old. There were some beautiful parts to it, while others just didn't make sense (a phone in the bathroom, that was not connected, nor did it have a place to connect) We really liked the wooden floors in the room & that we could control the temperature in the room. No big air conditioning unit making a ton of noise when on - so that was great. When we checked in, my husband was trying to surprise me w/champagne waiting in the room. That was completely ruined by the girl who checked me in & she didn't even feel bad about it. On top of that, she kept asking if we wanted it in the room already & we told her yes, several times. We get to the room & 20 mins. later, still nothing. Finally my husband called & she still asked: you want your champagne now? Eventually, it shows up, but the "boy" didn't bring the glasses to drink from. 10 mins. later, he brings us wine glasses, instead of champagne flutes. We just gave up asking for anything else. My husband was very disappointed that he didn't get to surprise me properly (it was first time being away from our baby in 2 years) & the staff didn't seem to care. As for the room, it didn't look like it was cleaned properly. I found long blond hairs on the floor (I have short dark hair), some small yellow balls in the corner of the room - by the bed, & the bed sheets could probably have used a change. We slept on top of them. Also, my husband was bit by some scary white bug we've never seen before. It was nasty. Thank God he's ok though. I'm just glad we went through kayak & didn't pay the price the hotel thinks it's worth.
The room was nice and the staff friendly. No fridge in room, extra charge for parking.
Staff, room, view, location, feel Bathroom needs grout and wallpaper help
The staff were friendly and assisted in making our stay a great one. As a result of some miscommunication between booking.com and the hotel, the hotel gave my family complimentary day passes for the trolley system. The maid service was excellent and kept the room clean for us, making the bed and exchanging some sheets for us.
We went to the Monster Jam and were very close to the Alamo Dome. It made the show more fun, will stay there again. nope
Proximity to the Alamodome. Internet unreliable, slow, and frequently not working. Front desk no help as says call 888 number which is even worse . Breakfast food selection and quality poor. Condition of facilities degrading and not maintained. Carpet in poor condition.
location room was not ready even though I had requested early arrival 1 hr. only several days ahead
During my stay at Staybridge Suites: I was most impressed with the professionalism of the staff. Very poised, knowledgeable and courteous
