Convenience and reasonable prices are tops with conventioneers.
This hotel is a quick walk from the Convention Center, about two blocks from the River Walk and across the street from a downtown trolley stop --- needless to say, convenience is a major draw, along with rates that are a fraction of riverside prices. The cheerful red roof and Spanish style of the La Quinta chain fit in well with the historic atmosphere of the neighborhood. Accommodations are basic, but several notable amenities include free local calls, free Wi-Fi, in-room data ports, an outdoor pool and laundry services. Pastries and yogurt are offered during the morning hours. For families, kids under eighteen stay free with their folks. Smoking and non-smoking rooms are available. Pets are welcome.
