      Historical Traveler Reviews DoubleTree by Hilton San Antonio Downtown

      Radisson fine if you only want a place to sleep

      from

      Husband had a conference at hotel, so we decided to make a long weekend of it September 16-19, 2004. The hotel is on the yellow trolley route or you can take their van if you want to visit the Riverwalk or Market Square. I recommend taking the trolley back to the hotel as you go through "voicemail hell" if you try to call and have the van pick you up. Hubby missed lunch on Friday because there was only one restaurant at the hotel with at least three separate groups all trying to eat at once. He didn't see any other restaurants within walking distance and only had an hour to eat so catching the trolley wasn't an option. The coffee shop and bar need to expand their hours. The room air conditioner works well but is really noisy--we started turning it up full blast while we were gone so we could turn it off when we went to bed. Mattress was fine but pillows were small and lumpy. Front desk was great about sending up an extra pillow and regular coffee (our room only had decaffinated).

      Great value, great location

      from

      I stayed at this Radisson the night of Aug. 21 when my best friend and I went to the Alamo City. He had stayed there before and recommended it. We got a $79.95 a night rate off Orbitz, and it was great. The rooms were huge -- plenty of room to spread out and relax. Ample-sized bathroom. The a/c worked fantastically (if a little loud). I'd def. recommend staying at this property again.

      I give the Radisson Hotel Market Square an A

      from

      I was very pleased with the Radisson. I booked a "hotel" online at another place and it was a nightmare as soon as I saw what a mess it was I was outta there! We got two rooms at the Radisson with out any problems whatsoever. As soon as I walked into the Radission I was relaxed. Our room was clean from the bed to the bathroom and everything else as well and the pool was beautiful. They also have a van that picks you up in front of the lobby and drops you off in front of the river walk for FREE! It was a wonderful weekend after all. I give this hotel a A.

      Great choice the Raddison Inn Market Square

      from

      My wife and I stayed at the Raddison Inn Market Square and it was a wonderful experience. Everyone was real professional and very nice. We look forward in returning to San Antonio, Thanks

      Not Impressive

      from

      This isn't a very impressive hotel. The room wasn't in especially good shape--big spot on the carpet, bathroom fixtures not very good--and the service was mediocre. Our room somehow got overlooked by the housekeeping staff one day and never got cleaned. Folks at the desk and the restaurant were okay but not especially helpful. The location isn't great--a significant hike to Riverwalk or take the shuttle, which is a bit of a hassle.

      Pretty Good, good price

      from

      We stayed three nights over the Memorial Day weekend after booking on Quikbook for $75/night.

      Roomwas nice, location good (On Riverwalk would be better, but not at asking price). Parking included, on streetcar stop, shuttle available. Easy walk to Market Square but shuttle driver will take you. Not five star but well above average. The Korea comment is hard to relate to the place I stayed.

      Nightmare!!!

      from

      I had a horrible experience with my hotel room. I booked a standard room and it was absolutely filthy! The bedspread had visible stains on it and the sheets appreared to not have been changed. They had hair all over them and I couldn't help but be grossed out! The entire room was damp and had a funky smell. I will never stay here again!!!

      Terrible - so bad it became funny

      from

      This hotel is quite possibly the worst I have stayed at since one ill advised choice in Korea....

      Internet site says "heated pool". Reality - ice cold. This matters in mid March... We talked with at least a dozen other guests similarly "surprised".

      We booked a mini-suite. On arrival we were given a room with one bed - for a family of 4. This was corrected but when we pulled out the hide-a-bed it wasn't a hide-a-bed. An hour later we had a cot.

      We repeatedly called to have a parental code removed from the Gameboy access. Which was odd since we never put one one. They said "its gone".

      It wasn't. We called again. "It's gone". 4 times... still there.

      There are no local shops, yet the hotel has no snack machines. There is a "coffee cafe", which I never saw open during our stay. Purportedly it was open 6 til 2 but when I went down at 9:15 for a muffin the employee stopped me at the door saying "we are closing".

      The "free" van is too small. And travels too infrequently. Frequently guests (including us) would wait and not fit and have to wait another 20 minutes. We ended up using the trolley and using cabs.

      The staff was not very smart. Service at the restaruant was poor, service by the counter staff poor.

      We watched bemused as guests around us exaspertedly tried to get this hotel to function as one should.

      We shortened our stay and moved to another hotel.

      Great Price Great Place!

      from

      This hotel was very clean and the staff was extremely helpful. Great location, easy to find and offered shuttle service. Would stay again.

      Fine for 2 night stay

      from

      We just returned from a 2 night stay at the Downtown Radisson with our 2 children(5 and 2 yrs old). We travelled from Houston to go to SeaWorld and do the Riverwalk and just wanted somewhere to stay which wasn't too expensive. I got us a good deal for $79 dollars a night and the hotel was fine. Breakfast was OK and the staff were friendly, especially on arrival at the reception. The outdoor pool was a big hit with our children and the room was OK with enough room for 4 of us. The free shuttle bus is a great idea too. I am not being harsh with a 3 circle rating as I wouldn't say the room/food was above average but it was a pleasant stay and the room was clean with friendly staff and nice pool.

      ... weeks, we've met new friends from all over the U.S. and Canada. Like Steve and Faye from British Columbia, who have a cattle ranch they down sized from 9000 acres to 2000, so they could travel more. We went to the San Antonio cattle drive to see the huge longhorn steers come right down Houston Street, in the center of San Antonio. We also went to the Livestock Show with them. They were an incredibly nice couple, who made us laugh ...

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 ...

      The campground was called "Top of the Hill", and it was--on top of the hill. To get to the top we had to traverse a 12% grade thru a narrow gap on a dirt road. Once up the hill we had a nice level spot that was very windy and the ...
