I stayed here for a business trip in conjunction with a convention happening right next door. The location is excellent (for convention-related trips), and very convenient to several other downtown appointments I had during my trip. The room was beautiful, although my "view" was a parking-lot sized rooftop, and the top of the Toyota Center - thankfully the room was pretty enough to justify closing the curtains. The hotel is absolutely mammoth, so it is slightly confusing to navigate, but the coupon you receive as a government employee for free breakfast is pretty hard to beat at a hotel like this one. You can even redeem your coupon at the little Starbucks counter for coffee/juice/pastries/fruit if you are on the go (as I always am). Valet parking was a little steep ($*/night), and I was disappointed that a hotel of that size wasn't able to offer me a cash advance charged to my room so that I could have cash to tip the valet. I've done the cash advance thing at another high-end chain hotel in San Antonio with no problem, so I was surprised that they weren't able to accommodate. Another plus to this hotel - it's accross the street from beautiful Discovery Green and The Grove Restaurant. I would stay here again - for sure.
