... less than the. UK), the car seems to be doing around 23mpg so not too bad. Then after a while we seem to leave the flatlands and the landscape is more undulating although road looks a little wet and the sky looks ominous ahead. As we get to San Antonio it starts REALLY raining and we forgot that we left TomTom on shortest route so we find ourselves taken off the highway and in tons of traffic heading to town. Decide to quickly change to fastest and then we're taken back ...

In Dallas George looked forward to seeing the five-level highway interchange. When there is not enough area for roads to work side by side; they have nowhere to go but UP. And up they went... ...
... stop of the day is the Alamo. We didn’t know what to expect; which was probably a good thing. The Alamo is full of history—but we are not familiar with any of it, so we are always anxious to learn new things. There is essentially a fort area with several main buildings. The gift shop is the largest building. The shrine is the primary destination building of the Alamo. This building is basically empty and has a few small ...
... we'd see a Border Patrol SUV pass by on that gravel road. Often they would be dragging three big truck tires behind them -- To cover their tracks? To make it easier to see footprints? Interesting... A little further on we crossed the Pecos River on a high bridge. At the overlook we met another couple from Washington, also on a "road trip" and traded a few road trip stories. We then travelled on to Del Rio where we took a break for an hour or so while the Prius got ...

TravelPod Member ReviewsJW Marriott San Antonio Hill Country Resort & Spa
Let me start by saying that we were here as part of a convention and that the convention experience can be different from a simple family vacation.
I don't know where to begin. Our room was wonderful; there were no king rooms available when we arrived close to midnight of the first night of the conference and were among the last to check in. Without much hassling on our part, we were upgraded to one of the hospitality suites. It meant a murphy bed but honestly, that murphy was more comfortable than some of the regular Marriott kings that i have slept in.
Service was wonderful. Any staff members who passes you in the hall greets you with a smile. The waitstaff, whether in the huge dining rooms, the restaurants or the pool, were friendly and helpful.
The food was for the most part excellent and this includes the dinner we had at the Cibolo Moon and the convention meals. One lunch, we were about to leave to eat else where in the hotel because all of the entree dishes contained the one ingredient that I cannot eat. We met Chef Dillard as we were about to leave and told him our problem. He said that they could easily cook up some of the meat for me plain and he ran off to take care of it. Within a short time, I had lunch.
We have been to a number of conventions at Marriotts over the past decade and this was one of the best.
