... says You Are Back In LA quite like it. Rejoining the 101, we used google maps to calculate an ETA for Inglewood and it said 3:15pm. We had lazed a little too long over our Solvang pancakes so we had to forego the last of Route 1 and stick to Ventura Highway...in the sunshine.... That joined up with the 405 just as the elastic band of peak hour was winding-on. Traffic slowed near Inglewood but without ever stalling and we were soon parked in a side street behind the ...

... was a cultural highlight to understand how the slaughter of such a relative few could matter so much for Texas, American and the world. Even though I will confess it got boring pretty quickly, it was interesting to observe how the bravery of those who sacrificed themselves for something they hoped would be greater, is sometimes viewed as a trite cliché.

After the Alamo, we rounded a few corners looking for a way to get Matt’s wheel chair down to ...

Day 6: rapid repair, and rapid pace

... only they made a giant zip tie!!! See picture titled "Giant Zip Tie." We sped along at about 70 mph most of the day. That seems pretty fast with a trailer if you come from Kalifornia, but is about ten mph slower than the speed limit in Texas. Everything here seems like it makes more sense. The DJs on the radio stations even seem to be more level headed. I have actually started listening to Country again. Of course the stations here ...

... like we won't get our B-Class upgrade after all...sheesh. 100,000 miles apiece and no where to spend them. Maybe need to rethink being loyal to one airline... Today's travel agenda includes flights to London (with a layover at DFW), then a train to the city of Bath, 1.5 hours away from London. I'm really excited about Bath, a town named for the Roman Baths it is built upon. If all goes well, we'll be walking into a B&B in Bath in just under 14 hours. ...

So she finally got it out there and I stuck my head in the flight deck and told the pilots that we had a lady on board that had too much to drink. The captain said she has to get off then. So when the ...

    Historical Traveler Reviews Residence Inn San Antonio Downtown/Alamo Plaza

    Awesome Hotel!

    from

    My family stayed at the Residence Inn Alamo Plaza this past week and had a wonderful experience. The hotel was recently built and very clean. The suites are awesome--full kitchen with fridge, microwave, stove, dishwasher; separate bedroom with full closet and bathroom. The staff was EXTREMELY nice and friendly and the housekeeping even washes your dishes for you when they clean the room. The kitchen has everything you could possibly need from dishes to silverware to dishwashing detergent. They also have people on staff who will buy your groceries for no additional charge if you leave a list at the front desk by 9 am. There is a full buffet style breakfast in the morning with everything from cold cereal and oatmeal to sausage and eggs to making your own waffles. We have two children age 2 years and 10 months, and this hotel was perfect for them. It is very "kid-friendly" with an animal safari theme--each floor has a different stuffed animal in a little cage. Our daughter Annie loved seeing all the different animals. The waitresses in the morning also passed out animal stickers. If you have a two year old, you will know how exciting a little sticker can be! They also have new pack-and-plays (cribs) that you can use for no additional charge. The pool is pretty small but it was never that crowded so it wasn't a problem for us. There is also a hot tub next to the pool. There are three laundry rooms with washers and dryers (cost is .75). There is detergent and bounce in the laundry room that you can buy if you don't want to bring your own (cost is also .75). The hotel is only a few blocks from the Alamo and Rivercenter Mall. There is also a trolley stop nearby where you can catch a trolley to just about anywhere downtown. It is in a GREAT location. We were able to walk everywhere we wanted to go and rode the trolley a few times. We did drive to Seaworld and it only took us 15 to 20 minutes. Also, on Monday through Thursday the hotel has a hospitality hour from 5 to 7 where they serve appetizers and wine and beer. We paid $90 a night for the one bedroom suite b/c my husband is a doctor at the Veterans Hospital in Little Rock and we get a government rate. Parking in their garage is $10 a day. I don't think there is a better deal out there for a suite room with a kitchen this close to the Riverwalk area. Especially when you include the buffet breakfast. I would highly recommend this hotel--especially for families. Oh, and if you have a pet who will be traveling with you, they are allowed. There are also two bedroom suites if you have a bigger family. You really can't go wrong if you choose the Residence Inn Alamo Plaza!

    I would stay again

    from

    We stayed Memorial weekend, 2005 for 3 nights. Our group was 2 adults and 2 young children. We reserved and paid for a 1 bedroom but ended up in a studio because I erroneously booked a smoking room. My fault, but I would have loved to have been in a 1 bedroom.

    Convenient location and great service

    from

    This hotel is literally one block to the Alamo and 2 blocks to the Riverwalk. Great family stay due to the kitchen and living room. The staff at this hotel were all excellent. The front desk was always available for suggestions on restaurants and tourist locations. It is located by a bar, but it didn't interrupt our sleep at all. The location is immediately off of I35 and very easily accessed. The breakfast buffet had great variety and stocked well. The value is just great at this hotel. The beds were comfortable but not luxurious. The pool is small, but adequate for small children. The hotel was incredibly clean. Just great service!!! Would stay again.

    The Basics plus Friendly Service

    from

    I stayed here with a friend during a very busy convention. We were pleased with the Marriott Residence Inn. First, the service was VERY friendly. I was greeted daily in the halls and elevator by housekeepers. George, the night bellman was especially kind along with the front desk staff.

    Great Stay at the Residence Inn

    from

    My boyfriend and I just returned from a wonderful trip to San Antonio. We stayed at the Residence Inn Downtown/Alamo Plaza. Overall the hotel was great and we were very pleased.

    What a treat

    from

    We could not have been more pleased with this facility. The suite was exceptionally clean, service outstanding and breakfast buffet scrumptious and varied. This one is a real value and I would recommend it to anyone.

    Great experience near the alamo

    from

    We were extremely pleased with every facet of this hotel. The furnishings have recently been updated, so the rooms, hallways and lobby are bright and cheery. Breakfast is wonderful, complete with make-your-own waffles, fruit and meats. The staff is very friendly, courteous and helpful-- they have printed directions on just about anywhere you want to go. There is also a happy hour with munchies during the week. The location is only a block from the Alamo, and within walking distance to the Riverwalk. The pool is a bit small, and be sure to budget in $10 a day for parking. Overall, our experience here was wonderful and we will definitely be back!

    Excellent!

    from

    After seeing websites for some of the more upscale hotels in the area, I was a bit concerned about what quality and service at the Residence Inn. However, we visited the Residence Inn in March 2004 and were thrilled with the hotel's location, staff, cleanliness, and value.

    Great place just off the river

    from

    Stayed at the Menger for 2 nights and hated it. Tiny, Tiny, Tiny rooms that smelled bad. Moved over to the Residence Inn and loved it. Great staff (extremely friendly), nice breakfast buffet, and a short walk to the river.

    Great Hotel

    from

    The Residence inn is about a block from the Alamo and just a few blocks from the River Walk and River Center Mall. There were four of us. Three adults and my 16 year old son in a two bedroom suite. The suite was very clean and the bedrooms both had doors for privacy. We had a TV in both bedrooms and the liveing room. The staff is very friendly and they know there jobs very well. The free breakfast was awesome. In my opinion, this place runs a class act as far as being clean and catering to the people who stay there. For the Money you can't beat it. i'am saving my marriott rewards also.
