Best place to rest and relax!
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.
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.
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.
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.
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
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.
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.
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!
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
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.

Our only activity today was an attempt to get the suitcases fuller before we head home in three weeks. We went to many stores over 6 hours and didn't get much at all, despite trying on lots of clothes. The day was pretty warm but it got overcast so the day was comfortable despite being in the late 80s. For lunch we had Taco Bell and for dinner we had ...
... the caves we stopped at the Animal Park and Snake Farm on the way back to the hotel. There were a huge number of snake types either some brilliant colours and patterns. Outside we saw some cool animals including fennec fox, white lion, macaw, prairie dog and hyenas. Some of the cages seemed inappropriate for the animals, in that they were pretty basic and concrete. For dinner we went to Wendy's and had some ...
... free so it was a good place for Cheryl. We sat by the river and ate lunch and I had a couple of cold Lone Stars in honor of the former brewery down river. I thought that was a good reason.
After lunch we walked around the area, both along the river and on the streets above. After feeling like we had enough walking we headed to the bus stop for the return trip. A couple of stops after we got on, the folks we met last night who were ...

Before I forget, let me tell you about our last dinner in New Orleans. We ate at John Besh's place Domenica, which is Italian for Sunday. It was a really authentic Italian trattoria, very informal and family friendly. The most memorable dishes we had were a pizza that we shared, with tomato and spicy salumi and an antipasto plate with meats and cheese. The pizza could have been made in Italy and brought to New ...
We finished up our 6-State trip today. It was a good time, we visited with lots of good, friendly people, learned a few things and spent a few bucks, but it was time to get home. The plan was to stop at Camping World in New Braunfels to make the appointment to have the correct size and color awning installed. We also had a couple of things to return and the defunked GPS taken care of. As it turned out the first two items were easily done. We have to take the MH in on Thursday ...
