Steeped in history

Posted Sep 12, 2014
Pros: There is a lot of history about this hotel, and the area
Cons: Shuttle to the airport would have been nice
Location: So many things to see, short walk to restaurants and the river.
Great place to visit, even if you don't stay here. Interesting, beautiful, friendly.

Beautiful hotel with great staff

Posted Aug 19, 2014
The hotel was very clean and the staff were very helpful and inviting. The architecture and room decor were fabulous and kinda made me feel like I had travelled back in time. If I'm staying near the river walk again, I will definitely be returning to this hotel.

Excellent choice

We stayed here for a weekend getaway with the family. It was close to the riverwalk, very quiet and had the feel of an inn rather than a huge chain hotel. Would highly recommend!'

A Blast in the Past

Posted Jul 23, 2014
The room was an old victorian style setup, so we were surprised at the room setting as we walked in. If you're looking for a modernized hotel, this is NOT for you. If you don't mind the rustic victorian style and old school atmosphere. Then this is quite a nice place to stay and it's close to a lot of places downtown.

Antique: on its way up

Posted Jul 22, 2014
Pros: i loved the vintage feel and decorations a lot. very fun ambiance.
Cons: some of the items very 'vintage' but in need of repair; curtains, drawers, dry wall, carpet seems. but its an old building andi know theyre renovating
Location: river walk, alamo, hemisphere park, south town, alamo heights, market square, alamo dome,
i just stayed one night for business. I used valet and the front desk, obviously, but no bell service. Staff seemed okay with people taking their own bell cart which is different for me being used to full service properties. But, i get it, small hotel, limited staff. The building and its decor is very charming, very antique. Kinda old lady antique... but i think it adds to the charm. its a very different property than most in the city. great place for couples, not so much for kids

Charming historic hotel but ..

Posted Jul 21, 2014
Room was freezing,couldn't regulate temp. Ice for drinks available by request but they then fail to deliver as advised is the practice. Charge 3.00 for a 120z bottle of water. Hard to determine level of cleanliness when so many items are worn and stained, a beautiful building that is in need of repair Great location,staff pleasant
