Great Location, Helpful Staff, Good Value. We booked through a "mystery" website so weren't able to select our bed(s)/room size and there was a faint smell which suggested a pet had once stayed in the room. Otherwise, everything was perfect. And, I'd stay book again if the need arose!

Rated 1 out of 5 by Mom5 not good
I would not stay here again. The bathrooms need to be updated and the overall cleanliness of the hallways, rooms, furniture and carpets is horrible. My kids reminded me that I said the same thing the last time I stayed here, but thought they had gone through a renovation- but hadn't.

Rated 4 out of 5 by JLow Great staff and customer service!
We went to San Antonio for a weekend getaway and are so glad we picked the Gunter. I'd been to several weddings here before but had never stayed in one of the rooms. They were by no means large rooms, but they did the job and we were always greeted with happy and helpful faces.

Nice historic hotel, conveniently located near Riverwalk, short walk to Alamo. COLD AC was pleasant surprise for an old hotel. Beautiful lobby. Have stayed twice and pleased both times. Super friendly and helpful staff. Parking is expensive at $28 per night. Bathrooms are small.

Rated 2 out of 5 by 1traveler864 Great Staff - Rooms need to be updated
The staff of the Gunter were all very pleasant, courteous and accomodating. I have to say that the carpet in my room looked to be at least ten years old and had every stain you could care to imagine. The shower and toilet were also speckled with mold. Not whatI expected to see.

Rated 3 out of 5 by htraveller small and dirty bath room
I stayed at this hotel before, very happy with it previously. The recent stay in jul 2012 is a disappointment. The bathroom is so small, one has to turn sideway to close the door. It really shows the age, seems like it's have not been updated over 20 years, and not very clean.

Rated 4 out of 5 Hotel was good.
Thought I had told the person who took my reservation that I was a AAA and AARP member. The on line notes says I need to let the Check in desk know to get free parking and Breakfast. I got no Breakfast and paid $9.00 for the parking. Enjoy your stay at this Hotel. It is nice.

Rated 3 out of 5 by OnBusiness Room for improvement but still recommend.
A little disappointed on room cleanliness (i.e. carpet, bath tub, tiles) and furniture a little run down. The bed and pillows are my favorite of all hotels. Reason why I stay at the Sheraton Gunter!! Excellent distance to riverwalk and walking distance to all the fun spots.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Alan1 Hotel was very good except:
It was very noisey on the of the hotel were our room was.
The Bar was very poorly managed, Bartenders would leave the bar area unmanaged for up to 10 + minutes. We were there for at least 5 min before we were even acknowleged.
Club room was handled very well, good personel.

Rated 5 out of 5 by cheetah Hotel has great location and service
This hotel has great character and history. Only 1 block from the River Walk. They always provide benefits for starwood members including access to preferred room upstairs. Staff is friendly and helpful.
Have stayed here in the past and will continue to stay in the future.

Rated 2 out of 5 by Bren Room needed improvement
The room we were assigned to was a handicap room the room was in need of attention. For example, the desk chair leather was peeling, the bed skirt and sheets were stain, there was something on the t.v. I did try to contact the manager but my call has not been addressed.

Rated 1 out of 5 by Unhappy Definitely Not Up to Par
Carpet was filthy. Didn't notice it until we went into shower and saw dirt on the shower floor. Vending machines didn't work. Put us in a room where all night you heard the roof air condiitioning units running. Didn't even care about my complaints when I checked out.

The hotel is very elegant and well kept up. I enjoyed my stay and I would recommend this hotel to others. The staff was excellent and they were very accommodating. Also, the hotel is short walk from the river walk and very close to Starbucks, which is a plus for me.

Rated 3 out of 5 by BB123 THE ROOMS IN THE HOTEL WAS DISAPPOINTING.
I HAD PROBLEMS WITH THE TOILET LEAKING FROM THE TIME I ARRIVED...GREAT BIG ROACH IN BATH... I THINK THE ROOMS SEEM DARK/GLOOMY BUT A VERY NICE HOUSEKEEPER ON MY FLOOR WHO TRIED TO ACCOMMODATE FOR THE PROBLEMS IN THE ROOM. ALL IN ALL STAFF WAS PLEASANT AND HELPFUL

Rated 4 out of 5 by sdouble Room Cleanliness
The carpeting and especially the bathroom (the tub) needs to be replaced as they were both very old and dirty. This is the second time I have stayed at this hotel and both times I have experienced this.The rest of the hotel facilities were excellent.

Big thank you to Mark @ Barron's Restaurant - he assisted in setting up our reservation for over 20 runners for the Runner's Special Pasta Bar. The waitress was great and we all loved the chef whipping up our own special pasta combinations!

Rated 4 out of 5 by Sashimi Comfortable and well-located hotel
This is an old and gracious hotel that is located near the River Walk and Alamo,
and close to several fine dining options. My room was part of an interconnected suite and was poorly sound-proofed. The bed was comfortable and the staff were very attentive.

Rated 5 out of 5 by KimfromCali FABULOUS!
This hotel exceeded my expectations. Roy at the front desk went above and beyond to meet my requests. The Club Lounge was better than any I'd stayed in, as far as staff and drinks and services.
The hotel was short walk to everything, and stunning lobby.

Went to the CEC conference for educstors and this hotel was a great place to stay. I recommemd that you stay on the club floor so you can have access to free alcoholic beverages and continental breakfast. Don't ask for room service it takes forever.

I have not stayed in many "older and historic"
hotels. My stay here was not bad i assume you don't like to here average on these surveys as well. Room was small, bathroom was small and inconvenient. and the pool was small and no scenery whatsoever.

I stayed overnight for work. I loved the lobby and the bar just of the lobby, great style. The staff were friendly. Too bad I was there for work so I didn't get to enjoy the area too much! I could see a lot of fun places within walking distance.

The hotel staff made this business traveler's stay easy and comfortable.
Though my room was right by the elevator, I experienced little, if any noise at night.
This location was ideal for a client dinner, and any additional needs that arose.

Thanks for the great hospitality and wonder facilities in San Antonio. Although everyone on the staff was exceptionally friendly and helpful, it was Benjamin in the lounge that made our trip extraordinary and just delightful! Thanks again!

The room was clean and very nicely furnished except for the desk chair that was cut to shreds. The hotel has a lot of nostalgia and we enjoy the stay so we have access to the majestic. Parking attendants were very nice and welcoming.
