    Very clean, comfortable beds and great location to down town and the river walk.

    Great location!
    Check in was smooth. It’s an old hotel but overall comfy. I didn’t like the fact that the ice machine in our floor (4) wasn’t working. No shower cap. Of course I understand it’s the 2nd week after reopening, but there were no amenities at all. Not 1 single bottle of water for free, or maybe coffee at the reception area. But we were where we wanted to be, so...

    Poor 2,0
    Horrible experience, valet was extremely slow & told multiple times the car would be given to us when they didn’t even call for it. Outdated furniture in the room, extremely hot at night, and a funky smell. Overpriced to say the least for a really bad experience. Would absolutely not recommend coming here

    I've had better visits.
    Toni at the front desk was very friendly. I had called the hotel the week prior to my visit to inquire on the status of their restaurant and bar. I was told it was open and that is why i made my decision to book. When I arrived, it was not open and was very disappointed. After checking into my room on the 14th floor, I got trapped in the elevator for approx 10 min. I rang the emergency bell several times with no answer. I finally pryed open the door myself and had to climb back up to my 14th floor as it was stuck between the 2 floors. Called the front desk and was told I had to climb down the fire escape from the 14th floor in the 100 degree weather. Upon making it back to the front desk, Toni stated that she knew the elevator was not working properly but just hadn't been fixed yet. Fantastic! That might have been something you tell your guests prior to them boarding the elevator and that there is no internal staircase to come down. NOT at all a pleasant start to my 3 day weekend.

    3.5 out of 5
    Reserved a king & was checked into a double, called down to the front desk & they changed the room to a king for us. Unpacked our stuff in the new room went to the Riverwalk for a few hours and came back to the AC not working. Changed back to a double, But it was okay because the double room was bigger and had a better view. Staff was nice and accommodating, rooms were clean, showers had nice water pressure, however the beds $ pillows aren’t very comfortable. We stay different brands of hotels to check them all out. Due to Covid the hotel restaurant & bar we’re still closed but we were able to go swimming so all in all it wasn’t that bad. & parking is $20.

    I had a great view that overlooked the Alamo. The staff was very friendly.

    It was an okay experience. Nothing huge to gripe about but also nothing exceptional to note either. Rooms are really small and in need of a good dusting as there were cobwebs in spots. The air vents were dirty and there were minor things that added to the dinginess, so to plugs coming out of the socket and the tub drain latch not lining up over the hole so it has a large noticible gap. The lighted mirror is a nice touch, but the paint peeling off and rust all over it means you can't set it anywhere without worry it's going to stain something. Now to address the "haunted" aspect.... Nothing happened at all. There are weird smells here and there and the 14th floor does have the noted "hospital" smell to it, but that doesn't make a place haunted to me. The elevators do have a mind of their own, but they are just old. Every old hotel I've stayed in had issues with them. In this case they were actually endearing a bit because it was as if they had a personality and I enjoyed that. Last thing I will say that really irked me was the fact that the vallet would steal money out of my cupholder. It wasn't much and I'm not complaining about the amount, just the principal of the matter. I tipped almost everytime someone gave me my keys or I handed them away..and I wouldn't even mention this if it wasn't for the $39 a night fee they charge for the service. Otherwise, the building is gorgeous and the lobby looks high end, but there are better options for the money.

    Location couldn’t be any better. Beautiful old hotel, rooms are spacious, beds comfortable. Things to improve on would be friendlier and more helpful valet and front desk staff and hot water in the sink. It would have been helpful to have two sinks and two luggage racks, as there were two of us. Restaurant staff and manager were outstanding; manager very attentive when we had some concerns which were addressed immediately. Housekeeping went over and beyond-thank you
