Good place and price even four star

Posted Nov 25, 2014
It locates very close to the river walk and tower of America. This is four star hotel and historical hotel. Very old facility but good atmosphere. Counting all of these, it is very reasonable hotel to stay by such inexpensive price.

Close proximity to everything. I love the charm!

Posted Nov 17, 2014
Pros: The charm and how they have preserved this hotel. Makes it feel more like home than a hotel. Staff was really friendly and helpful.
Great experience, would recommend to anyone just wanting to be close to the riverwalk but not pay some of those absurd prices that are right along the riverwalk. I loved the old charm ...our room was really spacious and had a balcony over looking hemisphere park.

Hotel Right Across La Villita Historic Arts Villag

Posted Nov 10, 2014
Hotel has the same nostalgic feel you get at the Menger or Crockett but places right across La Villita Historic Arts Village area. Also the park and conference center.

Nice hotel for downtown San Antonio

Posted Oct 27, 2014
Pros: The decor of each room was unique. The hotel had a boutique feel to it.
Cons: The shower in our room did not keep hot water consistent. Walls are really thin so you could hear everything.
Location: Location was premium. We were able to walk everywhere and see all of the major downtown attractions.
The wife and I spent the weekend in San Antonio and the Fairmount was conveniently located close to the convention center, Alamodome, Alamo, and other attractions. Being off the Riverwalk, it was also quiet.

Nice, historical, but disappointing

Posted Oct 22, 2014
Pros: Decor and ambience of early 1900s, when the hotel was built. Very close to Riverwalk; especially La Villita.
Cons: Provide option for a/c fan to be on for circulation, even if the a/c itself does not have to lower the temperature.
Location: San Antonio Riverwalk La Villita
We chose this hotel for its location close to the San Antonio Riverwalk and for its VIP status on Expedia. It was interesting to learn of its history - over 100 years old. It is tastefully decorated and maintains its early 1900s charm. The staff was very friendly and courteous. The room and grounds were clean. Overall, we had an ok stay. We were disappointed, however, with two items. (1) The building is well maintained, but is still over 100 years old and showing its age. The floor of our third story room and bathroom was slanted enough for us to have that "something's not quite right here" feeling when we stood up. Some may find this charming; we found it bothersome. (2) The front desk was not aware of Expedia's VIP hotel program and so she did not offer us an upgrade or other benefit. The next day we asked the manager, and he offered the upgrade, but we declined because we didn't want the bother of changing rooms for just one more night.

Not warm

Posted Sep 26, 2014
Confirmed upgrade prior to arrive but was told at check in that the upgrade didn't happen. Our room was too cold & the heater wouldn't come on. Front desk gave some lame excuse about thermostat. Almost fell in shower because of the tub
