Localização e arquitetura A recepção não é boa. Na chegada fizeram-nos esperar até ás 15 horas para nos dar um quarto, num hotel que estava vazio. Extraviaram uma encomenda entregue e assinada como recebida, que depois apareceu graças à intervenção do gerente.
Localização, preço, equipe
Excelente localização e instalações. A equipe lidou muito bem com uma falta de energia que durou horas. Ótimo café da manhã e conveniência para muitas atividades e eventos. O aquecimento era barulhento durante toda a noite, ligando e desligando. A falta de energia de hora que durou horas na manhã de sexta-feira foi um incômodo tolerável.
Staff, service, room, and the hospitality was awesome.
Staff very helpful, assisted in getting my husband a golf tee time, friendly, patient, good suggestions for things to do, and places to get services. Would have liked spa services available at the hotel.
My room location was awesome. The view I had for the firework show during New Years Eve was even better. I live and work in the UAE (Dubai). We have some of the best and most world class hotels that anyone can offer. With that said,....my first stop when I landed last week was the Palacio Del Rio. I put my bags on top of the dresser and when I pulled them off,..I found a lot of dust on top of the dresser. I did not make a fuss about it,..but I do know that the places I stay around the globe will not tolerate such a thing. Other than that,..the staff there was extremely polite and helpful. I will def. stay at the Palacio del Rio during my next visit to San Antonio.
No free wifi
Stayed there for SA Marathon. Had to get up at 4:30 but could hear loud music outside until 10 PM. Also, AC did not work very well.
Nice room right on the riverwalk parking was a big issue and expensive
The river walk A little expensive for the small room
Seemed to have difficulty getting auto from valet parking. Took 50 minutes one time.
Friendly, helpful and warm staff. Location is excellent, right smack at the river walk. Within walking distance to all main attractions in the city
I got an upgrade to another room and it was awesome there on out
that it was close to everything They didn't tell me about 20$ parking day, they didn't tell me 100$ deposit would be needed.
Location is excellent Beds are quite narrow. Air conditioning went out one night. Thankfully, it was repaired the next day.
I stay here often and I have tried other places it's so luxurious for the money and the location is in the middle of everything!
Central Location: Beautiful 150 year old historic hotel, literally across the street from Alamo, Numerous attractions, Riverwalk Mall, Ripley's, Wax Museum, Guinness Records, etc.... Short trolley ride to Historic Market. We used it as base of operations. Bought all-day passes to attractions and walked back to hotel to cool off/swim when needed. Lots of food nearby too. Hotel staff gave great service too. Kids loved all the museum like stuff in the hotel. The bar has a mirror with a bullet hole next to it they say Teddy Roosevelt shot in it on a bet when he was there recruiting his rough riders. Been here several times. It is our 'go to' spot for San Antonio. The parking is very expensive. Thirty dollars per day - but it is expensive in the entire city and you do have unlimited in and out privileges. The hotel is really old so it has a few rough edges. The pool tiling needs a bit of repair, some of the doors stick a bit, the elevators are small, floors are a little uneven and a bit sloped here and there, etc. It has a lot of "character", but I guess refurbishing an old hotel is like restoring an old car, you never quite manage to get all of the rattles out of it.
We liked the location so much!! Just besides the Alamo, and the hotel is nicely preserved!! You can see the age of the hotel in the rooms! The bathroom was extremely small but usefull. The valet it's on the expensive side!!
The historic portion of the hotel is beautiful! Rooms are small,full size bed... but very nice and very clean. I would like to suggest that better quality sheets be used on the bed... sheets were way to big, so they tangled up at your feet. The beds are not the most comfortable to begin with and the sheets only made it worse.
San Antonio's 1859 hotel was all it promised. Perfect central location next to the Alamo, and the Menger Hotel itself is rich in history, generously displayed throughout the building. The room itself was just fine, but I am interested mostly in the ambience outside the room (so long as the beds, showers and such are good). We will return. One note of special interest: the maid was a great source of info; cheerful and helpful! The view from the window? - a wall! Next time we will ask for a courtyard or other external, interesting view. Otherwise, all was well.
If you want a little history stay, this place is it. This place is great old school hotel with the oldest bar in town. Has a nice pool and inner garden to chill. Nice helpful staff Rooms were clean and large. The shower could have stronger flow and pool service coming around a bit (there is a phone to place order) but that is not a big deal. Location is perfect - Riverwalk starts right here and Alamo is a cross the street Can't open windows in the room (the old bulding) Shower has weak water flow
Ordered breakfast off the restaurant menu. It was high priced and the portion size was small. 1 breakfast taco with sides was $16!
Historical, legendary hotel - also comfortably contemporary ... Plus, the staff at the front desk was polished and helpful. They made us feel they were serious about our enjoyment of the hotel. Would have liked to have stayed another day to enjoy more of the amenities, such as the Menger Bar and its TR Rough Riders connection. Note: You really need a "none of the above" category for the second question on who was in your party -- none of those definitions fit. This was frustrating and I almost didn't write this review, but decided to submit it by checking "group of friends" even though it's wholly inadequate to describe my party, which was me, my sister, and mother, and my sister's boyfriend.
The Menger is very historic and literally right across the street from the Alamo. There are lots of things to do that are within easy walking distance that give you the San Antonio experience. The historic nature alone is worth the stay. We didn't get a room in the old, original, historic section. Our room was outdated and in need of renovation.
Beautiful hotel with charm and character. So close to everything and convenient for someone on foot/ for public transport/ for tours. Great pool. People working there were very nice - allowed late check out at 1:00pm. A bit noisy at night - one night it was loud drunk tourists, once it was random construction at restaurant in mall next door, & once the fire alarms went off. I don't think it's the hotel's fault though.
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.
From the complimentary brunch at Ruth Chris, to the friendliness of the staff, i am impressed everytime i come here.
Everything, but the outdoor smoking areas were in direct sun or behind pool area that had no air.
Excellent hotel with a nice view of the Riverwalk. The room and restaurant were first class and the staff was very helpful. Well worth the money The only problem we saw was around the pool where there was debris and refuse but there were also a lot of inebriated people there when we got there which might account for stuff on the ground and in the pool.
Beautiful room friendly staff
Great Stay! Room was clean, spacious, and beds were comfortable.
Yes The view
Room, location, close to activities All good
How close it was to the river walk. The smell on our floor and room size.
Near Convention Center. Bathroom was not clean.
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.
Location, easy to find, by riverwalk. Oh, the people working there, OUTSTANDING IN EVERY ASPECT! Nothing, would stay there if the prices were better!
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.
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 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 $50 rooms in towns with less than 5000 people. Buyer beware.
Love the balconies over the river walk, historic character of the building and that it's pet friendly. Enjoyed listening to the church bells in the pool court yard (we were there on Easter Sunday morning). Had to pay for wifi. Verizon cellular service barely worked in our room, cell & text functioned poorly, data did not work, so we did not have internet access during our stay.
Bad irons . . . One spat red stuff with the steam function . . . the replacement was dirty. But the staff replaced them no problem
Everything. Breakfast on the riverwalk, emaculate rooms, stylish old style bar with knowledgeable bar tender. If you hear the alarm, call the front desk. It's a parking garage across the street. They don't own it. It shuts off quick, but the front desk won't hear it, so call them .
It is located right on the riverwalk. Very good staff and comfortable rooms. My room was on the street side and the traffic was very loud. I would recommend a room on the river or interior part of the building.
Location is everything. The Omni La Mansion is in a perfect location on the riverwalk without the crowds of the convention hotels. The service was top notch and the food was fabulous.
Good location and friendly staff Very old hotel. Our first room had a broken faucet. Second room was better but needed updating. A ton of road noise and party people on Friday night. Very expensive especially the breakfast buffet which could have been larger for the price.
Lovely looking. Nearness to everything on riverwalk. We paid extra for double beads, with taxes, extras, etc. and paid 300$ with discounts. It was an inner room with no view/ window.
The staff was amazing upgrading us for free to accommodate our requests. Couldn't be more convenient for the River walk.
Staff and rooms
Very nice location no AC in hallways, bedroom ac did not work that well. Needs to be updated for sure.
Courteous and friendly staff. Personal attention to each patron. Well maintained rooms and facility. Atmosphere is great.
The good news is that the hotel is right on the River Walk, so you're right in the heart of the action. If you're looking for action - this is the place to stay. The bad news is that the hotel is right on the River Walk so you're right in the heart of the action. A lot of noise from the River tour boats and people, so if you're looking for quiet - this isn't the place.
Fairly convenient location, within a short walk of market Square, slightly longer walk from Alamo. Heavily stained carpet, hair in bathtub, dirty toilet, peeling wallpaper. Needs updating and throrough cleaning.
Free parking and shuttle service were very pleasant surprises based on previous stays in San Antonio. Loooong walk to our room
I thought that the facility was clean and comfortable. Staff that we encountered were all pleasant. We visited during remodeling so check-in was a bit odd. I also thought the shuttle service was a bit weak. There are so many places to travel in San Antonio that market square seems like an irrelevant spot to travel too being that it is only 2 blocks away.
I thought the location would have been closer to the river walk
The staff was friendly and very helpful Internet was difficult to login to and wasn't a very good connection
Close to downtown Internet connection was terrible. Mold coming out of our AC. No ice machine on our floor. Carpets were dirty. Bed was not so comfy.
Got there about 11 am. Had a nice clean room ready for use. Staff was friendly. Had a free shuttle to take use to the river walk so we were save in an area we did not know. Not thing. Everything was great
It was the best The fact it was so clean and friendly !!!
The price was right. The place was worn and old, the facilities need a considerable upgrade. Also, the site, though near the Riverwalk, isn't as close as it seems from the description, and is in a bit of an industrial neighborhood. The hotel was also understaffed, and there were long wait times for any service at the front desk, especially close to checkout time.
The staff was nice except for housekeeping. The location was nice. Parking was good. Housekeeping staff were rude. The pool was dirty, the rooms are poorly ventilated. Woke up and everything in the room was damp. The carpets in the room were nasty and stained. The staff started vacuuming the hallways at 9:30 at night while my kids were sleeping. The kiddy pool tile was crumbling.
Clean, friendly. I was happy with our stay. There wasn't any continental breakfast available...
Bed&linens were very clean and comfy. 4 pillows per bed! The staff was friendly from the front desk, to restaurant, to the maintenance guy who brought us pool towels. I was traveling my myself but had a couple friends visit to use the pool and it was great. Lots of families, but quiet rooms can't hear other guests Hot tub bubbles were broken.
Very nice, clean room. Staff was very friendly and helpful. N/a
Don't think that because of the great rates you're not getting a quality place because you are. We were only going to stay one night and ended up staying three. Unmatched service alone guarantees we'll be coming back. Not one time in our 3 night stay did we find a single flaw in the room, property or staff. The location is strategic as it is close to the awesome Riverwalk and also to most freeway on ramps. From the minute we checked in, we were offered suggestions on where to go, eat, coupons, and maps. We interacted with all of the staff, including the General Manager, day and night, and all we're professional and helpful. We are not just recommending it, we are coming back.
I liked the comfort of the beds. The breakfast was very poor. They only had fruits, coffee, pancakes. Nothing compared to other hotels .
For the low price it was very good!!! The breakfast was about average but the room had a big bed and a puli out coach. Staff was extremely friendly abdomen helpful. If I ever return to San Antonio I will be staying here again!! Ironing board in the room was flimsy but I could live with it!!
The convenience to the river walk was nice. The staff is very friendly and helpful. No shuttle from the airport to the hotel. We also reserved two rooms one with a king bed and another with two double beds however they gave the king bed away to someone else and we ended up with double beds in each.
Sleeping in the bed. The outrageous parking fee. $62. For a 24 hour period. I didn't need the room serviced but I did put my full trash can just outside the door in the am and it was still there when we checked out at 4:30 pm. The room was fine but not worth $250 a night. I thought it would be something special for that kind of money.
The room was very comfortable, including the bed and pillows. We asked housekeeping in the hall on our way out for more pillows and not only was the gal we spoke to obliging, but she asked if we wanted soft or firm. The pillows were waiting when we arrived back to the room. We loved that the flooring was not carpet...that gave the feeling of it being even cleaner plus it would make it more hypoallergenic or those with allergy problems. The icing on the cake was the complimentary bottle of champagne they delivered to our room for our anniversary. Not a thing!
I liked that it was clean, and comfortable. The location was perfect, allowed us easier access to the museums and the alamo. There staff was very friendly I really enjoyed my stay
Nothing. Didn't even stay there I requested two suites, only got two regular rooms. Charged me for two suites. I cancled the rooms and never got my money back. Horrible experience
The location was great, not right in the busiest part of the Riverwalk, but for the price it was a pretty short walk! The pool was small but nice. The rooms seemed fresh and new-ish. The staff was friendly and helpful. No free breakfast and the Coke I bought in the lobby cost $3, but for the price I paid for the room that wasn't a HUGE deal. The parking cost extra but that is normal for hotels on the Riverwalk.
This hotel is extremely clean! The rooms have wood like laminate which is so nice compared to gross hotel carpet!! The staff was really friendly. I loved the location on the Riverwalk. I would stay here again!
everyday we had to reset key, which was extremely uncomfortable.
Comfortable, convenient, great staff - love staying here.
Staff very friendly. Beds comfortable. Rooms very clean. Good location
Great staff, great rooms. Traveling for work, we used the lounges "Living Room" like spaces to meet and catch up after each day at the trade show.
Easy to find, convenient to downtown, quiet. Snacks overpriced.
I loved the Bistro ! It was very good! Nothing
Spacious rooms and very clean. Close to the riverwalk and alamo.
Very comfortable beds. Close to downtown. Friendly staff at the front desk. Staff seemed slightly irritated that I booked through an agency other than Marriott when I called to verify the reservation. I was actually advised not to do so in the future by the Marriott staff. Food overpriced. Bathroom looked clean but had a musty smell to it.
The staff were very polite, the room was lovely and well-kept, the location was pretty good, especially for the price. My mom and I walked to the River Walk and other attractions without too much fatigue. I wish they served free breakfast. The area was a little scary at night... the surrounding area is not well-lit, so I my mom and I felt a little vulnerable walking back from the city. No one approached us though.
The staff was really friendly. It was close to the River Walk. The bathroom could've been cleaner. There was a fly in the room and the pillow covers had stains.
My kids loved the hotel. They enjoyed the pool and the environment. Nothing
O quarto era bom e o café da manhã tinha umgrande variedade.
O café da manhã era ótimo. O quarto era espaçoso e o sofá-cama era mais confortável do que pensei que seria. As paredes eram muito finas. Eu podia ouvir a máquina de gelo a 4 quartos de distância. A suíte tinha uma porta que separava o quarto da sala de estar, o que era bom, exceto pelo fato de que o ar condicionado estava no quarto e a sala de estar se tornou rapidamente quente.
The rooms were great, and the housekeeping was so kind. We had a great experience, and were able to walk most places since the hotel was right on the riverwalk, and near restaurants. The front desk staff gave my kids balloons, and glow bracelets for the 4th of July- huge bonus! We were able to purchase our SeaWorld tickets through the hotel as well... for a discounted rate. It made everything smooth and easy for our visit to the theme park.
It was right on the riverwalk. The maid never cleaned the room. When we got their the shower was dirty and the whole time we were their no one cleaned it. The pictures online made the room n pool look a lot bigger then what they really were.
Convenience of location. It indicated free parking in location amenities, upon arrival I was advised it was $31 valet parking and $15 parking but not overnight stay. So I paid around $50 in parking fees, within 3 days and that was not in my budget.
The hotel was extremely roomy and very clean. However it was a little expensive to start. I wanted to check out at 3 pm instead of 12N. I was charged $* for 3 hours a little rediculous. I was spending the weekend with a friend from Fort Sam Houston. She didnt have to be back untill 8:30 so I was gonna let here stay and watch television; give her a break from the whole army thing. That was a whole day charge?!? Umm I am not the best at math but that 8 hours which is 1/3 of a day not a whole day. The hotel was maybe half full it was a monday. Serisouly, they didn't want to work with me and they charged me a higher rate for the 3 hours than the rate I booked through the online travel website. I will never tell anyone to stay at a marriott and I will never stay at another. All the other hotels I stayed at worked around you if they could, not this one!
The hotel was clean and quiet, and the staff was attentive and helpful. The breakfast each morning was good.
Our trip to San Antonio was in celebration of our 50th Wedding Anniversay as a surprise gift from our kids, who made all arrangements including our stay at the Residence Inn - Alamo Plaza. We had the best time; the location was excellent, we found the overall appearance to be well kept and our room very clean...and to top off our wonderful accomodations, the staff at the RI-Alomo Plaza were simply wonderful. Being there for a week, with us coming and going so much throughout each day between site seeing trips, we were able to become acquainted with many of the staff and they were so friendly, helpful and personable; it gave the place a very comfortable home-away-from-home feel. We were so very pleased and appreciative of their wonderful hospitality; we didn't want to leave!
The Residence Inn Alamo Plaza proved to be an exceptional choice. The convenience of location was complimented by employees that were pleasant, personable and helpful; recognized immediately when checking in and experienced thoughout the week. We thoroughly enjoyed the evening strolls along the riverwalk and the excellent food choices to experience. Our room ( 1 bedroom) was spacious, well kept and quite comfortable to return to after a long day of touring the city and surrounding areas...very interesting and beautiful. Each day kicked off with a great breakfast at the Residence Inn and although we rented a car, several days we hopped on the trolley with stop offs at missions and other points of interest; a great way to tour the city and eliminate the stress of dealing with traffic and parking. A future return trip to San Antonio will absolutely include a stay at this Residence Inn.
Although this hotel is in the process of renovations, we had a wonderful stay. Our rooms were immaculate and spacious. The complimentary breakfast buffet was delicious and had something for everyone. The social gatherings in the evenings were unexpected and most enjoyable.
The room was great. Really close location to many attractions and restaurants. Really liked the atmosphere. Staff was excellent and really enjoyed the whole stay. Would definitely stay again.
The room was so much better than an average hotel room with a separate living room, kitchen, bedroom and bath. I felt like I was staying in a small apartment instead of a hotel. We had everything we needed and the hotel staff was exceptional! Everyone was so nice and accomodating! Next door to the Alamo and close enough to walk to the Riverwalk. The free breakfast was out of this world and I must say, I've never stayed in a hotel that offered free happy hour drinks/dinner Monday thru Friday. I hope to visit San Antonio again and if I do, I will definitely stay here. I won't even look around for another hotel.
We went down for my daughters graduation at Lackland AFB. I found the hotel comfortable and the staff very friendly. Great place to stay, close to the Riverwalk and Alamo, I was pleased with the room and would definitely stay there again if the opportunity arises.
Stay in this hotel was good.It is conveniently placed.It offered good room and breakfast.Staff was really good and helpful. But the blankets we got were stinking. When contacted to staff they have replaced but the replacement was also of same quality . Even the staff had accepted that it is of poor quality and careful washing is required.
We stayed at this hotel for the San Antonio Marathon in November 2009. We booked it based on the price, the location (near the Riverwalk), and the fact that they had free breakfast. We arrived two days before the marathon to enjoy San Antonio. When we arrived, we were told that breakfast would be served beginning at 4:30 AM the morning of the marathon. What a pleasant surprise since we thought we'd miss breakfast that morning. The breakfast was pretty much the same each morning, but there was a variety of items -- eggs, sausage, make your own waffles, yogurt, bagels, English muffins, cereal, etc... This hotel is just a couple blocks from the Alamo and the Riverwalk. It is about a mile from Market Square, and maybe 1/2 mile from Tower of the Americas and La Villita. It is all within walking distance (even the Alamodome) Our room was quite roomy, including a full size fridge, a small stove, a small dishwasher, a microwave, high speed internet (free), and much more. It was actually a sui...
From the moment of check in with the vallets to the day of check out this hotel was amazing! Called and requested early check in and rooms next to each other for a bachelorette party and Jennifer set it up for me wonderfully! Then the night of our stay front desk Denise was very kind and the whole staff was just amazing! Couldn't have stayed a better place for our festivities! Loved it!
We enjoyed our stay at the Residence Inn in downtown San Antonio. It was very close to the Riverwalk and the main downtown attractions. The room was clean and staff was very friendly. Breakfast buffet was good and had many options. We would revisit this hotel on our next trip to San Antonio.
