This 30-story high-rise hotel towers over the beautiful River Walk in San Antonio. Across the street lay the Rivercenter Mall and the convention center. Families will want to check out the Alamo historic site — a short, three-block walk. Can’t beat the location! More than 500 guestrooms display balconies that overlook the river or the cityscape. Spacious rooms are equipped with premium cable and LCD high-definition televisions, high-speed Internet (for a fee) and cribs on request. Decors are inviting and calming with warm, neutral tones and rich, cherry wood accents. If your room faces the river, step out on your balcony for a beautiful evening sunset. A small number of suites feature larger spaces with sitting areas and multiple rooms. For fun, a sundeck holds an indoor/outdoor pool that will break up the touristy site-seeing for kids. Cactus Flower Restaurant serves traditional Southwestern fare, complete with Mexican creations for each meal. A festive atmosphere displays gold accents and chic designs. A Starbucks is also at the Marriott. Outside, a garden terrace with an ancient Spanish Oak leads to the River Walk.

Just ok for a Marriott. Much like many other places in San Antonio, it’s kind of run down. Terrible elevator situation. Nice staff. Food is ok. Breakfast food for meetings is terrible. Why are your eggs so bad? Are they powdered or something like that? Rooms are nice, ish. Bed is comfortable. Bathroom is well appointed. I’d stay again if I was in town but it’s doubtful I will. Nothing to write home about.

Luis and Ricky were very helpful and gracious about dealing with my stick shift car, and helped me with a luggage cart to handle my multitude of boxes and bags. The front desk staff were also friendly and helpful. Much appreciated!
