"You Never Learn Anything Travelling 1st Class"

... a Panns-style diner featured in the Quinten Tarantino movie Pulp Fiction, plush booths and jagged stone brick work. It made me whistle the theme to 77 Sunset Strip. The predominantly black diners seemed as happy as we did to be immersed in the retrospective gustations of Panns, a whole box and dice experience, right down to The Chantel's singing "Maybe" on the jukebox. A fitting and absolute finale to our time in The Golden State, for on this trek at least we would not be coming ...

... in the hot, dry summers that concrete slabs and the foundations of homes can be broken. How do I know that piece of Texas info? I'll come back to that shortly.

In the meantime here are the some other highlights: the Alamo! Honestly, it was well into the 90’s and by the time we parked the car and walked the few blocks to the Alamo, we were wilting a bit. Paula kept the anticipation high and splurged by getting us the phones for the self-guided ...

Day 6: rapid repair, and rapid pace

... Actually, I can't blame them since it's basically ratchet strapped together. We also noticed that after leaving Las Vegas we have seen NO tow rigs older than about 10 years. Most are damn near new. We finally saw one about the same age as ours, and surprise surprise, it was an old first gen too. We did see several dead trucks along the highway though. Must suck it have somebody in a truck averaging the age of 30 years (rough ...

... 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. ...

As I got to the airport, I saw people holding their luggage waiting to aboard the plane. i was nervous at first to aboard the plane but then I overlooked all the Worst-case scenarios and thought about how amazing the capital city of france, paris would be. I imagined arriving in paris safely.

    Great Location, Interior Dated

    It was a great location, clean and good breakfast served the following day.
    I felt the interior was a little dated though.

    Historical Traveler Reviews Marriott San Antonio Riverwalk

    Was told the Marriot was better than the Hilton and Hyatt--- what a joke

    from

    I had prepared a great weekend get-away with my fiance only to be let down at every turn by the Marriott Riverwalk. We knew Fiesta was in full swing but we were NOT told the roads would all be blocked off and we spent 40 minutes driving around trying to find the hotel (and don't ask the police they were totally clueless as to how to get to the hotel). Once we arrived check was smooth but the bell staff were like chickens with their heads cut off here there and everywhere but no real control. The lobby was nice however very typical hotel lobby. Once in the room I was appalled, I'd have been in larger hotel rooms in tiny "one horse towns" the bathroom was very small and the sink had more water pressure than the shower. The bed however was comfortable. Dinner reservations were made easily by the front desk since the conceirge leaves at 6pm (what is with that)? After dinner we stopped to have a night cap, had one and the cocktail waitress was asking us to close our tab because the bar closed at 12:30am--I'd never heard a hotel bar to close so early. The walls are paper thin and we listened to people in and out all night as well as the room next door fighting, needless to say comfy bed and loud neighbors doesn't make for great sleep. I will NEVER go back, I'd rather take my chances with Motel 6!

    Very nice accommodations

    from

    We stayed at the Marriott Riverwalk and previous to leaving, I had read the reviews of others who had been there so had mixed feelings about staying there. It was very nice. Our view was absolutely beautiful. Weather permitting we slept with the balcony door open. The beautiful riverwalk, the mall, the historical Alamo, all close by to take in. Nightlife and restaurants, friendly people. Rooms clean, hotel in general, staff very friendly, accommodating.

    Bring your earplugs! No Rest in San Antonio!

    from

    Previous critical comments were right on. This hotel was not what we expected. As was described before, the bathrooms are SMALL. In fact, the door barely clears the toilet, which sits right up against teh tub!

    Wonderful Stay!!!

    from

    I highly recommend the Riverwalk Marriott. Great location, on the Riverwalk, next to the Rivercenter Mall and Convention Center. The staff was very friendly and helpful, from the front desk to the maintenance and housekeeping personnel. Our room was clean and well maintained, and we plan to stay there again.

    Okay, but will not use again

    from

    the room was a little expensive for what you get($194 a night). The room service was quick and the housekeeping done a good job. My wife and I just expected a better room than what we got for 200 dollars

    When Non-Smoking Room Isn't

    from

    Reserved a NON-SMOKING room for Sept. 30 and when we arrived it had the non-smoking logo and no ashtrays, but smelled of cigarettes. We inquired about the smell at the front desk and they assured us it was a non-smoking room. Since both myself and my wife are allergic to cigarette smoke we tried to get another room but were told they would all be "the same". We went for a walk in the fresh air and came back to the room for the night and could barely sleep because of the stench.

    This might have been a non-smoking room, but someone had been smoking prior to our arrival. We won't be back.

    Sincere, caring staff and nice facilities

    from

    We first checked in with our priceline reservation and wanted a smoking king room. They were out of them but offered a room with a balcony but with double beds. When we got to the room we were unimpressed with having double beds. My husband talked with the front desk and they moved us to a bigger room with a king and although it was a non smoking room, provided ashtrays and said we could smoke. The nexy day I was feeling a little under the weather and my husband called down for a later check out. He asked for 2pm but they expressed concern for me, asked if they could bring us any medicine and insisted we make the check out 3pm just to make sure. I could not believe it. I am so used to people being as polite as they have to and no more. This showed me that not only is their staff trained well, Marriott hires well.

    Marriott Rivercenter was great.

    from

    I spent 2 days at the Marriott Rivercenter. I really enjoyed my stay the rooms were very clean and comfortable and the amenities were great.

    The staff was friendly and helpful. I look forward to staying there again.

    Great Stay

    from

    Stayed at the Riverwalk from 7/19-7/20 (Saturday-Sunday). I had a great stay here. It was tough to find a hotel that actually was a short walk to the Alamodome. Most sites for hotels say that all these hotels in Downtown San Antonio are a short walk to the Alamodome, but the Riverwalk/Rivercenter actually is. The Riverwalk is the hotel I stayed at which is the smaller sister-hotel of the Marriott Rivercenter. The only 2 differences between the Marriott Riverwalk and Marriott Rivercenter is that the Rivercenter is actually connected to the Rivercenter Mall while the Riverwalk isn't. That's okay--it's a short and scenic walk of about 500-1,000 feet away! My preference would be the Riverwalk Hotel over the Rivercenter for the mere fact that it is small and more intimate and not nearly as busy and crowded (I visited the Rivercenter just to see what the difference was).

    Not what I expected

    from

    I stayed at the Marriott Riverwalk Hotel, which is on the Riverwalk in San Antonio. The positive thing was that the view from our room and balcony was beautiful, although there was no screen for the sliding glass door, so could not get the fresh breeze w/o all the insects. I was really disappointed in the hotel otherwise.This was suppose to be a 4 star hotel, I didn't find it any nicer than any 1 or 2 stars that I had stayed in. The room was small. The Bathroom was horrible - small, old and horribly lit. It did not have lights over the mirror but instead candle looking lamps with shades to the side of the mirror...couldn't see well at all with the golden glow the lights put out...esp. to apply makeup.There was no frig or microwave, which I didn't expect but do not understand why the hotel would not have it - esp. at those prices. You couldn't get bottled water from a vending machine unless you went to the 7th floor where the pool was...I was shocked. There was one vending machine (pepsi) on our floor..every selection sold out. Room service wanted $2.25 can of pepsi, $2.85 for coke. I couldn't believe that bottled water wasn't more available esp. in this day and age when everyone is drinking it.Another reason that I chose the hotel was because it had a pool..I love to be out in the sun and swim...but couldn't here - only 3ft. of the pool was outside..the rest of it was indoors connected.Needless to say I was very disappointed...esp. for the money I had to pay - with 17% taxes and $14 per day to park - it was $364 for 2 nights!
