A lovely idea now over-booked and crowded at every turn. A barge like pontoon boat every few minutes passes by every few minutes with running commentary audible to all.

The Drury is a great place to stay. It's location is perfect for walking to anything you want to see. It's a reasonable walk to the Alamo or the mall.
