Radisson fine if you only want a place to sleep
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
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
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
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
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
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.
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
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!
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
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.

... br> The next morning we had a gospel choir brunch booked at the House of Blues and as we had a slight hazy feeling the mimosa’s included in the buffet were a blessing in disguise, no pun intended. The choir was led by a woman in her 70’s, who had the voice of Aretha Franklin and the supporting acts, especially another woman, was mesmerising (Tam had a tear in eye, I did too when I discovered the mimosa’s had run out). The saxophonist was also amazing, ...
Today is Valentine's Day and we would like to do something fun. We decided to head toward San Antonio to see the sights. Every new city we are in presents its own set of challenges. San Antonio is no exception—the streets are not square and there is a lot of road construction being done in the downtown area that we are planning to spend most of the day.
We finally find the Alamo and even find parking very close. ...
