Courtyard San Antonio Downtown/Market Square Hotel Review: Because it's in the heart of downtown, and because its prices are right, this reliable property is often full. Popularity means crowds, and crowds mean bustle. But the lack of tranquility is worth it. Many of San Antonio's top attractions are a quick drive away, including the Alamodome, Rivercenter Mall, the River Walk and the historic Alamo. The outdoor pool is a pleasant place to relax after a long day of shopping or museum hopping. A 2013 guest room upgrade included carpeting, furniture and fixtures. A variety of amenities range from newspaper delivery to in-room coffee to free Wi-Fi. The hotel houses its own restaurant, coffee shop and cocktail lounge. Tourists particularly appreciate the on-site rental car desk, and you can always put the child care services to use while you drive off for a pleasant adult-only dinner. The staff is comprised mainly of locals who are a good resource for restaurant and nightlife recommendations.
