Great Location & Retreat
Reviewed 7 days ago

The hotel is lovely. Staff were friendly. Our room was very nice and had a comfortable bed. We especially enjoyed having a balcony overlooking the pool and courtyard. We only visited the courtyard and pool at night, both were enchanting and well maintained.This location is convenient to the Riverwalk, and the Hop On Hop Off bus has a stop nearby. Would stay at again.

Excellent Hotel close to the RiverWalk!

Excellent quiet hotel just a couple short blocks from the RiverWalk. Very clean, courteous and helpful staff, decent tho high priced food, hey welcome to a tourist area! We have stayed here multiple times, never disappointed, beautiful courtyard with large trees and pool. Even a peacock or two. Watch out for the $25-$30 charge per day for parking in a open parking lot, not even a parking garage... grrr...

Not up to the expectation.. Money Pit

We made a recent visit to San Antonio and decided it was time for some luxury experience with Marriott at Downtown San Antonio. well, must admit it was our first time with Marriott. We got a deal @ AMOMA, which didn;t clearly spelled out the details. That was a big mistake as kinda ruined rest of our experience. Let me try to dissect the experience:
Check-in: It was a long process. We were pretty tired and the couple of check-in clerks were busy either taking couple of dollars payments for biscuits and fruits etc or doing some strange long tasks which appeared like some time restricted online tests :). We were certainly not very welcome as they were expecting some other guests, especially airline staffs. Anyway, after a bit of prodding they finally decided to check-in us.
Location: Could not be better. Walking distance from River walk and Alamo.
Ambiance: Marriott did spend on beautifying the place with fountain, pool, garden and all. It looks all great until you get in the room. Unfortunately we did not have enough time to experience the all niceties.
Room: This is where our experience nose-dived. A pretty old fashioned room with old furnishing. The cupboard door where mini refrigerator was kept was coming loose. The swivel chair had worn out its faux leather. There was a nice patio/balcony with every room. However, it seemed apparently you need to upgrade to a better room (shell out more money) to be able to access the patio. It was locked tight for us. Bathroom was tiny in size compared to other hotels of far lesser budget. The toiletries were of better quality although.
Parking: Unless you are a Gold or Platinum member apparently you have to pay ($25) to park with Marriott plaza for a night. Nothing is free at Marriott.
Breakfast: $19 per head. Free for kids under 4. We decided to go out.
Check-out: It was fast.

Overall, didn't have good experience with Marriott. Unless you are a corporate customer/Airline staff or some Gold/Platinum member not sure if you could expect good service. And of course, Worst Value for Money (they probably would charge for the Oxygen in sometime).

Great location

Great location. Friendly staff. Valerie at front desk was super helpful. I lost my wallet and she paid for the room with her own money! LoL. Just kidding. But she checked me in and gave me great directions. And Gilbert at the bar kept my hydrated with all the adult beverages in sight! He was a great help with recommendations for the night life! Great staff and great location! Pool was like a tropical Oasis in the middle of Texas!

Business meeting and overnight stay
Reviewed 2 weeks ago

I arrived late due to a flight delay but the staff on duty was friendly and accommodating. I wanted to check the meeting room before the conference the next day and they were glad to walk across to the building where the conference rooms were located. It was a little disturbing that the door to the room was actually open at 10:00 pm. Not just unlocked, but open to the outside where people off the streets could have come in. But the room was set up just as I requested with one tiny exception. I spoke to the manager-on-duty, JC, and he addressed it professionally and immediately. My room was great, although at 10:30 I wish the people at the pool had been asked to leave or make less noise. All things considered, I'd hold more meetings there
