Rated 3 out of 5 by woody4 Average stay
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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Tinkerbell1 Absolutely gorgeous and history rich!
While the room was nice and very spacious, the bathroom needed some attention....upgrades or possibly tub replacement. The carpet needed to be stretched as there were wrinkles in it that we're worn.
Other than that, I absolutely loved the property, the staff and looking forward to returning very soon.

Rated 5 out of 5 by RGVTraveler Historic hotel with great value.
We have stayed at the Sheraton Gunter on numerous occasions and always feel welcome by the staff. This hotel has "character" and is a great value compared to other downtown hotels. Access is easy. Vehicle parking is at the hotel, and you don't wait 15-20 minutes for your car which can be the case at some other hotels. The Majestic Theater is across the street, and the Riverwalk is a block away.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Laura54 Hotel has a great location
We came down for a performance at the Majestic Theater. The hotel was right across the street. Fabulous location! Great room. The only problem was when one of the other guests pulled the fire alarm and we had to evacuate the building at 4:30 in the morning!
Some of the older guests had problems getting down the stairs. The desk person, possibly the Manager, was very accommodating and comped us our parking and our room service charge for the inconvenience.

Hotel gives you a sense of welcoming and is a very nice old hotel with great history. Valet parking an average service, no what you expect from Sheraton. Check in process very disappointing with unprofessional attitude. Room was very clean and comfortable, really nice place to relax and enjoy your stay. Check out process quick and smooth with a very professional attitude. Overall really nice place to stay and change in culture on associates needs to change to a more polite attitude.

Rated 1 out of 5 by Justj This hotel did not meet my expectations for the price.
The Valet and front desk personnel were courteous and helpful. The room was dirty when I arrived and there was hair in the bathtub. The heat didn't work and I could not get the room warmer than 65. The following day housekeeping did not replace the coffee or breakfast menu. Other than that they cleaned well. Barron's food was just not very good. One evening I was told that I could not order from the menu that the buffet was my only option. I relented and fixed my plate. Then they took menus to the table in front of me. I was leaving and not going to pay for my meal. Service was just not up to par.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Sandy48 Nice stay
We were in San Antonio as part of a cross country driving vacation. We were checked in by Patrick who was incredibly helpful. After we checked Patrick helped us with recommendations of things to do, places to go, directions and restaurant suggestions. He was right on with everything.
The hotel and our room was very nice but our room was somewhat worn. The carpet needs to be replaced. The leather desk chair was torn in several places. The bath and shower was clean but also worn. The shower head is unusually low on the wall making it a bit difficult for an average sized person to shower.
The service of the staff, however, made up for the room.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Djr5 Don't dine at this hotel
This is a lovely, well maintained hotel with friendly staff at the front desk. So, my husband and I thought that eating dinner in the hotel restaurant would be a good experience. It was not. Although we were only one of two tables the service was very slow. The waiter never offered bread and we only got some after waiting over twenty minutes and asking a bus boy. The other people at the only other table in the restaurant were ridiculously loud. We could hear every word of their conversation even though they were two tables away. I asked to be moved away from them and our waiter refused, even though the restaurant was completely empty except for our two tables. After we finished I went to the front desk and complained. They called the restaurant manager and he offered no compensation or even apology for a very unsatisfactory dining experience. I was surprised and very disappointed. Don't eat there if you want to have a nice, quiet meal.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Sandy26 A friendly Place
The hotel is beautiful when you first walk in. I was struck with how friendly the staff was, from the front desk to the restaurant. Traveling alone, I felt safe and relaxed. The bed was wonderful, especially the pillows. The only draw back for me was not having wifi. The hotel was a short walk from the river walk.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Marilyn321 Helpful Staff!!!!!
This hotel was fantastic. The staff is so helpful. The hotel is very clean. Housekeeping had my room clean by 9:30am each day. The airline lost my luggage and one of the front desk clerks (Patrick) went out of his way to help me locate it, even going to San Antonio airport to pick it up for me once I found out the airline wouldn't deliver it. I was without my luggage for two days and everyone went out of their way to try to make my stay as comfortable as possible.

Rated 2 out of 5 by Valerie22 Stunning lobby in historical hotel
The rooms/hallways need updating. The the elevators are slow, the hallway carpet is worn and faded and the original room I was given was horrible, small and dark. The meeting room -no plugs for laptops; the ladies restroom 3rd floor - too small. The food, both at the meeting and room service is very mediocore. Insufficient staff. and long delay in getting front desk or room service to answer.

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.

This was the second time that I have stayed at this hotel, the first time was great this last time was horrible, room was extremely small, couldn't use bathroom without having the door in my backside the bed took up most of the room, the traffic noise was terrible all night long, and no I am not wearing earplugs just for that, I guess that's why they were there in the bathroom, would not be able to hear alarm going off in the morning, great thought but not good. I will be very hesitate in staying at this hotel again.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Lookingforsun This hotel has great potential
Before we booked the hotel, we called to make sure the pool was working and heated. We live in Illinois and were hoping for a respite from the long, cold winter. When we booked the hotel, we also added breakfast to our stay for an added daily rate. This was going to be fantastic! Well, the first night we were there, we learned that the pool was closed because the heater was broken. Bummer. The following day, we tried to get a refund for the third day's breakfast because we had to leave for the airport before breakfast was served. They said they could not do that. Ok. Bummer again. Then, we asked about the pool again. Nope; it was still broken and was going to be closed all day. Nobody thought this was a big deal! They offered us no compensation at all. We asked if we could transfer to a different SPG hotel near the Riverwalk, but the guy at the front desk told me they didn't have pools. I told him that their website said they had pools. He called one, confirmed that they did have a pool, and asked if we could come swim in it. Anyone who swims in a hotel with a pool can see the value of getting back to your room via elevator and the huge inconvenience of getting back to your room after drying off, changing clothes in a public bathroom, walking to your car, driving back to your own hotel, finding parking, and finally going upstairs to your room. This was not an option. When we complained about this while checking out, a different guy at the front desk said he could not comp anything from the room, but did offer us SPG points. We weren't going to beg (we shouldn't have to beg), so we agreed. It just didn't feel like SPG service. And, the breakfast buffet was a micro step up from a low buget hotel.
As for the good, the bed was amazingly comfortable and charm of the hotel may bring us back here again.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Ali69 Great location but hotel facilities need improvement
Stayed here for one night. Was disappointed with the room and other facilities such as gym. It is a 3 star restaurant so treat as such. Room service also left much to be desired.

I just love this hotel, it is so beautiful and near the riverwalk. I hope that Sheraton keeps it up and preserves the history of this wonderful hotel. "C" was a great person to talk to and very helpful.
This time the 5p.m. happy hour wasn't as great as the last time but all the same a great feature.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Pete60 Perfect for our trip
The Sheraton Gunter fit our plans almost perfectly for our recent trip to San Antonio. Ideally located for any of the multiple opportunities the downtown offers (the Alamo, the Riverwalk, the theater district), the hotel served as a great launching point for our plans. The room was spacious, the beds were extremely comfortable, and the privacy was excellent. We would most definitely stay there again. The only drawback was that the pool is not ideally placed to enjoy any sunshine.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Verified Reviewer 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.
