Definitely will stay again. We stayed here for the Alamo 13.1. They were booked solid and we arrived well before check in. They promptly checked our bags and valeted our car. We roamed the river walk while waiting. The called me 2 hours before check in to let me know our room was ready, which was exceptionally pleasant. Had a...

HOTEL’S FAVOURITE REVIEW
Reviewed 27 November 2016 via mobile

It was our second attempt to attend the Riverwalk parade since it cancelled due to a torrential downpour last year. We were greeted warmly by the valet and staff upon arrival and promptly escorted to our lovely, Dog friendly room. Yes the staff always welcomes our pet as well. Breakfast at the hotel lead to meeting the most delightful young...

Not much to say - it is very very good. Stayed for two nights, the room faced the Alamo. Enough space and air, comfortable, clean, cozy. Pool on the 2nd floor (open-air). Very good breakfast. Great people working, polite, friendly, smiling, ready to help. There was a group of school kids (a tour, I suppose) but we did not hear...

Great hotel, the staff is outstanding and go out of their way to make sure you are comfortable. The valet guy's are the best. The rooms are a bit small but well equipped. Great location as its right across the street from the Alamo and the Riverwalk is a block away. Didn't see, hear or feel any ghost during our...

Wish we knew parking would be an additional $35 per night. Staff were very helpful. The hotel has a rich history. It used to be a hospital. The carvings on the outside make this a very unique place to stay.

This was an excellent hotel for my family of 7! The staff was extremely helpful, rooms were large, great location. Room service was excellent as well! Was a little nervous about staying here with small kids since it's listed as a haunted hotel...but no ghost sightings!!

I am a diamond Hhonors member and like to know what hotels do for such members and like it when others reviewers note that. Here, one gets free breakfast which is very good, but there is no executive lounge and being an older hotel not really great upgrades around either. Since it is a restored, older hotel it has cool...

The location can't be beat (Alamo is across the street), easy walking distance to Riverwalk and more restaurants than you could need. The folks at the front desk were very accommodating, and sleeping the room was easy and long. I can't comment on the rates, since we had a meeting rate that was very reasonable.
