    It is a must to go into the bar and admire the commemorative paintings. It is also the same bar where Teddy Roosevelt recruited the "Rough Riders" in 1898. Photo courtesy

    Quiet, comfortable, and the best customer service in the city. This hotel is in the middle of everything but still remains quaint and sophisticated. We will be staying here again.

    Very cool (not for little children, saw a few crying). if you do come here, and don't mind paying a little extra cash for the King Ranch Suite, do it. I'm convinced the hotels haunted!!!!

    The staff was nice even though my keys got locked in the trunk & they lost a very important package (still MIA). Very close to Alamo (just outside the front doors) & a block away from the River Walk.

    The 1130am brunch $11.95 is an OMFG. Homemade everything- omelet bar, carving station, strawberry shortcake, mousse, pecan pie, smoked sausage, soups, salads. A bargain, I'd have paid $24.95

    The courtyard is nice relaxing place to smoke a cigar from ClubHumidor in the lobby.

    They play overhead music from the 40's. it has a Stanley Hotel vibe. I keep looking for a kid on a big wheel to zoom past me.

    The toilets sound like airplane toilets and the room was tiny. It was cool to be in a historic hotel but it needs some updating.

    If you're visiting the Alamo you may as well stop by this historic Hotel. Loved it.

    Be careful in the showers. When a toilet in an adjacent room flushes, the temperature of the shower fluctuates significantly.

    Why are full sized beds even an option at this hotel??? Very uncomfortable stay since the AC wasn't working either.

    Don't stay here. Worst shower ever and it's not really haunted. I saw the valet guys wreck someone's car into a pole as well.
