Mom and I knew where we needed to go and where we wanted to go. Destination Known: San Antonio. Come follow along.
For disclosure purposes, the Courtyard Marriott San Antonio SeaWorld hosted us for the weekend. For that, I am thankful and very appreciative.
Our much-needed road trip to San Antonio to visit a family member started out on a Friday morning with a stop in Waco, TX to visit the famous Magnolia Market. More on that in an upcoming post. Mom and I had a planned visit on Saturday in San Antonio, and after that, we were free to tour the town. Our weekend trip ended Sunday evening with an impromptu visit at my best friend’s house in Bluffdale, TX. We had a great mother/daughter weekend for sure.
Destination Known: San Antonio
Neither of us had been to San Antonio in years. We remember a lot of what we saw, but of course, when years pass, so does change. San Antonio has grown and was everything we remember. Lots to do for sure. It was a dreary weekend but that did not stop the tourist at all. On our list to do was to walk the River Walk and eat Mexican food. When we arrived at the Courtyard Marriott San Antonio SeaWorld we were greeted with a smile and a friendly hello from the hotel clerk. That always makes me feel good.
When we arrived at the Courtyard Marriott San Antonio SeaWorld we were greeted with a friendly hello from the hotel clerk. That always makes me feel good. Our room was spacious, clean, and very inviting. We loved it! Acknowledging us was a special treat for sure. I love it when a hotel knows you’re coming and they make it special for the entire family. See below photo.
Because our little adventure in Waco was extended by all the wonderful things to do, Mom and I arrived at the hotel just in time for dinner. We chose to eat at the hotel in The Bistro. Dinner was excellent as was the service. The hotel was busy with a high school banquet and soldiers coming in with their lovely dates. It sure was nice to see lots of happy kids there!
Whether you’re coming to San Antonio for work or play, The Courtyard Marriott San Antonio SeaWorld serves a lot of purposes. Being only 5 minutes from SeaWorld, and having a spectacular indoor/outdoor infiniti pool with a swim-up bar, this upscale hotel is a good choice for family fun. For the business person, they offer a very nice and convenient business center.
San Antonio River Walk
You really can’t go to San Antonio without visiting the River Walk. Many restaurants and shops were opened ready to serve. Like a said above, the weather did not stop anyone from having a good time. Rain was expected, but mom and I rode the riverboat and even had to wait in line. It was nice to learn more about San Antonio from the driver of the boat. Only minutes from the hotel too.
My 5 Hotel Amenities Must Haves Are:
- A no smoking hotel
- Free wireless internet access
- An awesome pool
- Great location
- A friendly staff
I don’t ask for much. do I? The Courtyard Marriott San Antonio SeaWorld exceeded my expectations and more. This was our view for the weekend. If the pool looks this nice in February, just think what it will look like in the springtime. Isn’t it gorgeous?
As we say goodbye to San Antonio but not without a picture of us with all our goodies in the hotel’s lobby.
If your destination to San Antonio is known be sure to plan ahead and choose The Courtyard Marriott San Antonio SeaWorld for your stay.
