Default JW Marriott or Hyatt Hill Country

My wife and I are going to San Antonio to spend a few days the first weekend of August with our 1 year old. We want the pool and lazy river so that we can let the baby play and swim at the hotel. Iím looking for input from people who actually have experience with these places. Both places look wonderful, and we just canít make our mind up.

Other things we are doing:
River walk
Aquarium
Drive through zoo
Shopping for wifeís Bday... also open to suggestions on best places to shop.

I've been to both several times. JW I think is better for children. I love the restaurant at Hyatt better but really caters to adults.

My wife and I take out now 7 year old to JW Marriott San Antonio twice a year. Been doing it for 5 years now. We love it. We tend to never leave once we get there. However we have gone to the drive though zoo, caverns, riverwalk and la centers for shopping. All within a close range. I have never been to the Hyatt but have heard good things, we just found one we like and keep going back. The pools, lazy river and kid section at the JW have always been clean when we went.

I've always taken the family to the hyatt hill country since sea world is basically across the highway. We love it. Movies at night on the lawn, smores on the beach, and a great restaurant on site.

Love both. I really like the size of the Hyatt as itís a bit smaller and easier to get around. JW is pretty awesome though with a more impressive pool/river.

@ The Hyatt right now. It’s a nice place to stay and have some activities to keep you occupied and still be able to go out and sightsee. Seems like a “young family oriented” place.

The only thing bad about the JW is the dinner food at the buffet and Iíve been multiple times. A whole lot better if you order room service.

I’ve been to both and say JW is better by far. Bigger and better water park / pool area and tons of activities for the kids. Agree that food is better at Hyatt but that’s the only thing better about it.

For a one year old go hill country Hyatt and sea world. More family friendly. JW is great for older kids and a large family gathering. Jw is also unbelievable golf if that matters.
