    Historical Traveler Reviews Marriott Plaza San Antonio

    Best place to rest and relax!

    from

    I surprised my husband w/ an overnite to celebrate his 40th bday. We live here, so we enjoy staying at different hotels and playing tourist! We have visited the Plaza frequently, but never overnight. We were not disappointed. Easy to get to, nice staff, beautiful hotel. It reminded us of Jamaica especially the pool and courtyard where we spent a good deal of the day. The room was nice and comfortable- nice robes. We ordered breakfast from room service and ate outside overlooking the courtyard. The staff was attentive and responded quickly to any request. They even brought in a nice cheese tray for my husband! After strolling down the riverwalk- which is only steps away- we needed the late night snack. The pool has cabanas and nice padded lounge chairs. They also have a nice bar right next to pool. the fountains and all the lush vegetation make you feel you are in the tropics, not downtown SA! We loved it and it is our favorite place to stay downtown. We will definitely be back soon. It is a great place for getaway- we felt so relaxed after our stay... Great rates as well.

    Very Pleased

    from

    The hotel is absolutely beautiful! We were not sure what we would end up with when we took our weekend trip on a whim, but Plaza San Antonio & it's staff delivered beyond our expectations. My only regret is not upgrading to the courtyard view - the pool, fountains, & greenery are so peaceful. The location is a short walk to Riverwalk, Alamo & Hemisfair Park. Our only "complaint" was the changing temperature/pressure as we showered, which was mild. I would recommend this hotel to my family & friends. A great value for the money.

    Shhh...this is OUR secret.

    from

    This is an older high rise hotel that has aged very very well. It is a short walk to the Hilton, which starts one end of the Riverwalk tours (about a block away). It is direcly across from the old World's Fair site, which makes for a beautiful park view, and also cuts down on the craziness of traffic. Check out some of the discounters though and you can get a better rate usually than what the hotel offers. Even if you have to pay full freight it is worth it. This would be a very good place to stay with kids, because it is not in a very crazy section of town (but you can easily walk to it) and it has a very nice pool. Be sure to try the buffet breakfast in the a.m. It is a little pricey but well worth the $11.00 or so. I would be back. Nice, comfy rooms. Wonderful down pillows, sheets, etc. MUCH MORE than I expected for this price!! Recommend without reservation.

    Wonderful Stay

    from

    The courtyard is beautiful, great pool area & exercise room. Midnight check in was very speedy and staff was always courteous and helpful. My room was excellent. Location was as I had requested in reservation.

    Robes, turn down service, & overnight shoe shine service were great touches. Breakfast buffet was nothing special, but it was convenient & staff was attentive. Limo service to downtown in the morning on a weekday was very nice. I would stay here again.

    Great Courtyard!!!

    from

    My husband and I spent our 11th Wedding Aniversary at Plaza San Antonio. The staff is great, and they have a wonderful and peaceful courtyard with exotic birds. I would defenitly stay there again.

    Mariotte Buffet Food Poisoning

    from

    The hotel was ok, but I got food poisoning from the restaurant buffet.

    I bit into an orange slice and it was rancid. The waffles were hard as a rock, so I suspect some of the food has been sitting out for a few days.

    Decent Enough

    from

    We were disappointed with the musty odor in the common areas and to a lesser extent the room. The hotel is showing its age and is overdue for some attention. We warmed up to it in the next day as the grounds are attractive and the location, while not on Riverwalk, arent far from it. Would probably look for an alternative on any return visit to San Antonio.

    Excellent

    from

    I spent a week at the Plaza Marriott San Antonio, and found the service excellent. When a problem arose during my stay, the manager was very accommodating and did everything possible to correct the problem. The staff were very attentive and helpful. Although the hotel is within walking distance to the Riverwalk and Convention Center, I would not suggest walking to these sites alone.

    The Marriott Plaza was PERFECT!

    from

    My friends and I recently stayed at the Marriott Plaza in San Antonio for a "girl's weekend away". We found it to be of highest quality in service, location convenience, and atmosphere. The courtyard and grounds of the hotel were magnificant with the beautiful fountains, the pool, the greenery, the flowers, and the gorgeous peacocks and pheasants that roamed freely around the courtyard. We had fantastic service from the valets, the bellmen, the concierge, desk clerks, maids and the massage therapists. Everyone was very cordial and extremely helpful. The hotel was conveniently located within walking distance of the Riverwalk and historical sites.I give a 5 Star rating and would highly recommend this hotel to anyone staying in San Antonio!

    San Antonio atmosphere

    from

    The rooms are nothing special here (sort of Marriott anywhere decor), but the grounds are spectacular with strolling peacocks and a lushly landscaped courtyard pool that captures that romantic San Antonio atmosphere. Have a mango margarita delivered to you while lolling in the whirlpool, or laze on a porch swing on one of the historic buildings located on the property. The location is excellent, within a few blocks of the Riverwalk, yet you are far enough away to avoid the noise and bustle when you wish. Despite the peacocks, your pet is welcome here, too.

    ... stories about ranching in BC. They also had a Smart Car they would load up into the back of their Motorhome. There was a small crowd watching as Steve loaded the car. It's not a toy hauler as you seen on many trailers, once it's loaded, you can't tell there's a car inside the RV. Just plain cool!

    Mike has been enjoying time on the golf course, and I've been cooling off in the pool. Its a tough life.

    Bye for now. Stay well.

    ... and had been for a while. So we'll have to get that fixed. But it is a minor thing and apparently evidence of poor workmanship. We visited with Richey's and Gordon's for a while then Ronny & Linda arrived. Their coach is still in the shop, but it's supposed to be completed on Wednesday so that's when they will be arriving. After visiting for a while, we all went out to eat then Bob and I went grocery shopping. We didn't buy much, but we probably bought too much. Tomorrow we ...

    Foregoing breakfast we headed out early the next morning none the worse for wear. The hill country is like it says, hilly, and curvy, and beautiful. We enjoyed our ride thru and later in the day we were back in the desert type terrain. When I steer the motorhome ...

    The River Walk and biking trails

    After talking about going to the San Antonio River Walk for the the last 4 years, we have arrived!
    The "Cottage" gave us some hard times going through Houston's traffic, but we made it to the RV resort OK. Travelers World RV Resort is a great place to stay. It is clean and well kept. It has a pool and a hot tub. Bruce and Rachel are next door to us and we had fun exploring San Antonio together.
    We took the bus downtown, walked to the river, and went ...

The lady that was sitting beside her on the plane thanked the other flight attendant and me both for doing that. She said the lady smelled so bad of alcohol that she was a little worried about the flight with her on it. Another passenger told me that when they said ...
