This all-suites hotel downtown offers good rates and lots of space-value for your travel dollar. Set in a 1919 building that once housed the San Antonio Drug Company, Homewood Suites by Hilton is set along a safe but not so busy stretch of the River Walk. Rooms are large but basic, with no-fuss furnishings and standard hotel suite kitchenettes. All suites offer nice long-term stay staples, like microwaves, dishwashers, and refrigerators with ice makers, making this a good place for families who would like to save money by eating in. There are also the conveniences of sleeper-sofas and two TVs. Business travelers will appreciate being able to spread out while they work. In 2013 and early 2014, all-new white bedding and linens were added throughout the hotel. In the early evenings on weekdays, the hotel offers refreshments and a light supper free of charge. The rooftop pool area has attractive views of the city and the San Antonio River, although none of the rooms have such vistas. The hotel is just two blocks from the Convention Center and is close to downtown attractions.
