Residence Inn San Antonio Downtown/Alamo Plaza Hotel Review: This renovated (in 2012) thirteen-story, 220-suite Marriott is steps from the Alamo and the River Walk in the heart of downtown. RiverCenter Mall, La Villita and the Henry B. Gonzalez Convention Center are also within a few easily walkable blocks. A new, modern lobby features several spaces where you can relax, watch television, connect at the business center or hold a small impromptu meeting. The hotel has no on-site restaurant, but the Gatehouse offers a daily complimentary hot breakfast buffet and an evening social hour with complimentary light fare, beer and wine. The 24-hour Market sells snacks, beverages and sundries. Extended stays, business travelers and families will appreciate the spacious studio, one- and two-bedroom suites with sectional sofa/beds, ergonomic desks, updated baths and separate spaces for eating, sleeping and working. Full kitchens include conventional ovens, microwaves, dishwashers, full-size refrigerators with ice makers and just about everything else you need right down to the pots, pans and silverware. A staff member can tend to your groceryy list (charged to your suite), with no extra fee for delivery. Meeting rooms total 2,400 square feet including pre-function space. Extras include free Wi-Fi, a heated outdoor pool, a hot tub and a 24/7 fitness center. The hotel is smoke-free and allows pets with a non-refundable sanitation fee.
