Spent 2 nights here, hotel is just a short walk from the centre, we choose to walk but the hotel does offer a courtesy bus that runs up to River Walk every 30 minutes and will collect also when you are ready to come back. Hotel was clean, tidy and staffed with friendly knowledgable people. Breakfast was good the normal...

If you're looking for a less expevisve hotel than the ones on the River Walk, then this Holiday Inn Express is a good option. It's not far away and has a free River Walk shuttle every half hour from early morning to 10:30 at night. Be sure to ask the shuttle driver for suggestions about dining options and attractions. We...

Just 5 blocks from the River Walk. Unfortunately, it is near the conversation center, so when they have big events (like the Monster Truck Show last night), many of the streets are closed, so you have to take circuitous routes to get in and out. Hotel looks really modern on the outside, but rooms are kind of on the 1980's....

I'll start from the beginning. Upon entering the hotel we were warmly greeted by the lady at the front desk. I really wish I could remember her name because she was wonderful and deserves the recognition. She quickly got us checked in and up to our room we went. We were in 219. I didn't remember booking a suite but...

My husband and I rented a room here at Holiday Inn minutes shortly before checking in. We were planning to drive back to Austin but ran out of time. It was very nice that there was an available room right away and they had excellent service! The room was very clean and well kept. We were able to have some...

Our room was clean plus we had a pull out bed so my kids were able to sleep separate as they wanted. The shower pressure was awesome plus the water had a clean bleach smell (i know some cant stand that). The toilet was elongated but low, but again the water pressure was there too, flush with no worries. Plus...

The hotel was not bad except for the horrible smell of ammonia in our room. I do not know if other rooms smelled, but even with window wide open, bathroom fan on and the room door open it was impossible to air out the smell. Everything looked clean, so I suspect it was hidden by the dark carpet. Perhaps pet...
