Riverwalk location

The hotel is conveniently located very near the Riverwalk, but the standard queen room is very small. The bathroom was the smallest one I have EVER had. If it weren't for the size of the room and the bathroom I would have been very pleased. Be sure to get a deluxe room.

Great location but noisy room

The Sheraton Gunther is situated just two blocks from the Riverwalk in San Antonio. Unfortunately, is is located near some very busy streets. It is difficult to enjoy a nap when you are frequently woken-up by the sound of the air breaks from tour busses and trucks. The room was attractively decorated and the bed was comfortable. The bathroom is small, but had a nice old bathtub. The sink was in the bedroom. The first day we arrived the room smelled very dusty and the rug had not been vacuumed. The next day we complained and the management was responsive.

The Iron Cactus offers excellent Mexican food. The vegetarian enchiladas and the pork and green chile enchiladas are excellent.

Good Spot

I went to SA for a NBA Playoff game. Great location and great food. Bar in the lobby is also a hit especially for wine enthusiasts. Centrally located also. Only complaint...the hotel is old so the bathrooms are TINY and the old plumbing places the shower head about 5' high. Otherwise cool spot.

Historic Comfort and Convenience

As a frequent visitor to San Antonio, I've often wanted to stay at the Gunter, but my plans took me elsewhere. This time it was the perfect choice, just a block or two from the River Walk and in the heart of downtown. The lobby was beautiful, and the lobby bar, McLeod's, served a tasty and very reasonably priced omelet, a good option on a Lenten Friday. My room was nicely appointed with very comfortable bedding. My only complaint was the thermostat -- when I raised the temperature, I got cold air! Fortunately the bed was so inviting, I just hopped in and went to sleep.

Adequate facilities, close to everything

The Sheraton Gunter was in the midst of lobby and kitchen remodel and therefore not easy to review. It is an old hotel. Our room and bathroom was very small with no bathroom shelving for shaving items, etc. The hall carpet was in need of vacuuming when we arrived and remained so for the full four days of our visit even though I mentioned it twice to the front desk clerk. However, the location was so very convenient and the price so reasonable, we still feel that we got our money's worth and had a very enjoyable visit to San Antonio, Texas. Everyone should plan a trip to the Riverwalk.
