... Amtrak to see if we might have possibly have left it on the train. And, the hotel is working on it as well, because we were pretty sure we left it here before heading for lunch.
We met a very joyful gal at the Lake Charles, LA train stop while waiting for our taxi. She had seen Kallen on the train and was asking us about him. She just starting singing and praying for God to continue healing and protecting him! It was so sweet!
... alcohol etc. Then Sam found an advert for a Toyota & a Datsun.....it was game over, he was on a mission. After over an hour of being his search assistant I got over it & way past hungry as it was past 2pm. Had lunch at a stuffed animal museum cafe, deers etc lined the walls. They weren't very impressive burgers, probably the worst we have had. After lunch I was keen to visit the Alamo & Sam wanted to ...
... 8217;s on-time birthday present, then went to the post office. It was inside a big old government building, only open from 3pm until 5pm or something, and we had to go through security to enter, like in the airport. The guy in front of us going through security looked completely dodgy – he was a scruffy guy trying to bring through a big suitcase that had 'something’ in it that was picked up in the security scanner. The bag ...
... and I bought a deep fried Snickers bar. The guy serving me told me he liked my accent. I got a bit flustered and told him I liked his too, to which he looked at me strangely. Justin was jealous of my deep fried Snickers so he bought a deep fried Milky Way.
Finally it was nearly 7pm and time for the rodeo! We were very relieved it was inside, as we nearly had frostbite by this stage. We bought some beer and a bag of peanuts in their shells, then took our ...
Everyone hopped right out of bed in the morning and helped to pack up so we could get on the road. We definitely have gotten into a good routine when it comes to packing and setting up. Everyone knows what their jobs are and we can get it done pretty quickly. Even Clare will say, "what I do to help Mama?" She's good at carrying things to the truck!
Before we left on this ...

Historical Traveler Reviews DoubleTree by Hilton San Antonio Downtown
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!!!
This hotel is quite possibly the worst I have stayed at since one ill advised choice in Korea....
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.
