We made it to San Antonio and back. It was simply an awesome trip.
We stayed at the Westin. It was positively gorgeous. We had the
most comfortable bed I have ever slept in, a beautiful marble bathroom
and a simply wonderful view of the riverwalk outside our private
balcony. After seeing the other hotels, I was so happy that we were
there. All of them were nice, but we especially liked the Westin.
It was the best!
As per your suggestions, we covered many of the things we had
talked about in our emails. We had dinner Saturday night at Boudro's.
The food was delicious; the atmosphere was terrific. Sunday night
we ate at the restaurant at la Mansion del Rio. It was very gourmet
and very good. Sunday, we tried the traditional Mexican food at
La Margarita--not as fancy (or as expensive), but a good experience.
We went to the missions on Tuesday, before we left. The Gray Line
tour was well worth the price and we were glad to have seen all
of them. I can see that the Mission San Jose would be a beautiful
place for a wedding. We also attended mass at San Fernando Cathedral,
as well as St. Mary's and St. Joseph's.
We also got to El Mercado and Rivercenter nearly everyday, took
the boat ride down the riverwalk and walked the riverwalk frequently.
The vacation was simply wonderful.
I can't tell you how much I appreciate all your advice. I printed
your emails and took them along with me. There is nothing in the
trip I would change.
Please forward my reply to your boss. You simply were outstanding.
I was so thrilled each time I received an email from you with more
information. Quite honestly, you had a significant part in making
this trip so memorable.
We hope to be back to San Antonio again. Thank you so very much.
