I had a quick one night stay at the Hampton Inn in San Antonio Downtown. This is the hotel that is just a few blocks from the river walk.




Nice inexpensive position but a little way to walk to get to the riverwalk. It is part of the Hilton network so make sure to give them your Hilton number when you book or check-in so you can get credit for your stay.

The room:

a bed with white sheets and pillows

It is a standard room but like other Hampton Inns it is not basic. There is a fold out sofa bed for use as a couch and a table.

a tv on a table

Next to the tv unit is a desk with lamp and comfy office chair. Ice bucket is also on the unit.

a telephone and alarm clock on a desk

Next to the bed are plug points that are useful for powering your devices and a clock radio.

a coffee machine with a basket of coffee a small refrigerator with a door open

A coffee machine is provided as well as the refrigerator and microwave.

a bed in a hotel room

A wide view of the room. Hampton Inns have a pleasant amount of space to move.

a closet with a white ironing board and a white ironing board

The small cupboard contains ironing board, iron, hangars, safe and a luggage rack.


The bathroom:

Zero is the brand for all toiletries such as shampoo, conditioner, shower gel and hand cream.

The bathroom provides many towels, has shelves in the shower, and a box of tissues.

A pleasant bathroom for such a small space.


Certain angles in downtown San Antonio do not have very attractive views. There is a large Marriott hotel in the middle of my view but there is not much else to see.

The rest of the hotel:

A usable gym with treadmills, pedaling machines and other items is handy. Extra towels and a water cooler included.

Nice that they have a comprehensive store area with all sorts of goodies.

Hampton Inns are always a pleasant place to stay. They are not expensive but give you everything you might need from a room.
