Home2  Suites by Hilton, San Antonio, Texas

Conveniently located in the center of the city, the Home2 Suites San Antonio downtown hotel is an easy 10-15 minute walk from the historic Alamo and the San Antonio River Walk.  Opened in February 0f 2012, Home2 Suites is  a new idea for Hilton. One of only seven “Home2 Suites” in the nation, the all-suite, extended stay hotel is eco-friendly, while also appealing to the cost conscious traveler.

Eco-Friendly Atmosphere

"Home2 Suites Pool"

After a day sightseeing in San Antonio, Texas take a dip in the salt water pool

From the indoor salt water swimming pool, to the recycled materials throughout, the eco-element is apparent. Energy Star rated appliances are a given, as is the trend toward dual flush, water conserving toilets. You won’t find mini shampoo bottles here. Instead, look for bulk soap dispensers featuring Neutrogena products. The carpeting is made of 65% recycled materials, without the use of toxic glues.

What’s missing?

I couldn’t find the safe deposit box, because there isn’t one in room. You’ll need to head downstairs to the lobby to use the hotel safe.

The lobby is spacious and welcoming for guests checking in or asking questions

Extra credit points: Front desk receptionist, Sammi, went the extra mile to check me into my Southwest Airlines flight, as I didn’t have computer access during my off-site business meetings.
