The Gunter is an older independent property that is now a Sheraton. The staff were courteous and rooms are definitely historic (I haven't seen a traditional bathtube w/ knobs in a hotel in ages). If you want a place to experience San Antonio's nostalgia, this is it. Great location for downtown and the Riverwalk.

My wife and I checked in to the Sheraton Gunter Hotel on a busy Friday night for two nights to see a show at The Majestic. Upon arrival, the valet drive appeared to be very lively with guests checking in and was a small line but moved rather quickly. Hotel only has valet and is $28 but the valet did...

The customer service at the Gunter is great, they are very caring there. The valet charge is below average for the area and if needed you can self-park across the street. I loved the new updated look in the lobby, much better than the old decor which had been put up in the 1980's and looked like it. Room was...

We will never stay at the Sheraton Gunter Hotel in San Antonio anymore.

When we booked a stay at this historic hotel we were expecting to see the beauty of times gone by but they modernized the place so much that they totally destroyed any of the charm this historic place once had. We were really disappointed and let down in our stay here for the historic value of the place. We will...

Our first visit to San Antonio and was't sure if the Gunter was a good choice for our 2 night stay by not being directly on the river walk, but it's literally a few minutes to the river and this is such a nice original hotel was a perfect choice for us. Reception/Lobby has been glammed up in pale colours...

While not on the riverwalk, this hotel is extremely close to it and other things you want to do downtown. We actually stayed at another hotel on the riverwalk and found the location of the Sheraton Gunter to be more convenient. While the club room does offer alcoholic beverages for free (unlike most others in the US), the appetizers need...

we stayed for a meeting and found the location to be easily accessible to all the tourist destinations. Walking is not an issue, you can access the riverwalk just across the street.

I don't usually stay at Sheraton hotels, but this one is a gem. It is the old Gunter Hotel and has plenty of interesting history. Definitely read up on it before you go and be sure to check out the basement level for some artifacts and history of the hotel. In addition, it's supposed to be haunted, but I can...

Came down for a funeral in hopes to find some type of comfort during this time. Let me just say that this hotel is still very out dated and if they are going to charge as much as they do....they should do some renovations.
