Run the Rock 'n' Roll Marathon and Find Convenient Lodging Along the Route

SAN ANTONIO, TX--(Marketwired - Nov 6, 2014) - Plan a visit to San Antonio for the Rock 'n' Roll Marathon Series on Dec. 6 and 7. The 10k and Kids Rock will be held on Dec. 6, while runners participating in the full/half marathon, relay and 5k will race on Dec. 7. With many Marriott hotels in San Antonio along the race route, guests won't need to travel far to be near the action.

A great option for larger groups looking to stay together during the race is the top-rated San Antonio Marriott Rivercenter. Its location along Route 37 is close to the beginning half of the race, making it easy to watch as runners start the course. This hotel is also near exciting attractions like Sea World, Six Flags Fiesta Texas and the San Antonio Zoo.

In the epicenter of downtown is Marriott Plaza San Antonio, which offers a relaxing getaway in the form of a beautifully crafted outdoor pool. Runners and spectators alike can appreciate a relaxing pre- or post-race swim.

Located just off the course and steps away from Rivercenter Mall, Courtyard San Antonio Riverwalk is a convenient option for any runner or spectator looking to stay right along the famed River Walk. For those looking to stay midway through the route, just before mile 10 is Fairfield Inn & Suites San Antonio Downtown/Market Square. Here, runners can fuel up before the race with a complimentary breakfast complete with freshly brewed, hot coffee, scrambled eggs, Belgian waffles and more.
