Luxury hotel on the River Walk, with a private balcony in every room
The Hilton Palacio del Rio is well-situated for a business trip or some serious sightseeing. With its location on the River Walk, right across the street from the Henry B. Gonzalez Convention Center, just two blocks from the Alamo and next door to the Arnesan River Theatre and La Villita, there is much to do very close by. The Hilton Palacio Del Rio has the longest consecutive 4 Diamond AAA rating in San Antonio. Each room has a private balcony with its own luxurious view of downtown, and there are four different restaurants and bars to choose from.
Highlights
  • Next door to Arnesan River Theatre and La Villita and two blocks from the Alamo
  • Private balcony in every room
  • In-house dining at four locations
  • Business center offers audio/visual rentals, computer work stations, mail, shipping and courier services
Rooms

Every room features a private balcony with panoramic views of San Antonio, and has classic Spanish décor with creamy, muted tones and burnished brown wood. In-room entertainment is provided by a 37-inch flat-screen TV with on-demand programming. Hilton Serenity Collection bedding with 250-thread count sheets is comfy, and luxurious Crabtree & Evelyn La Source bath amenities are replenished every day.

Features

Keeping the longest consecutive recipient of the AAA 4 Diamond award in San Antonio means dedicated service and commitment to excellence are every day goals of the Hilton Palacio Del Rio.  Ibiza Patio Restaurant & Bar hosts live music Friday and Saturday nights. For a rousing sing-along with an Irish brogue, hop in to Durty Nelly's for a pint. Guests can check out the latest score at Tex's Riverwalk Sports Bar & Grill.

great location and value

Perfect location and great rate. Room was not fancy but clean. Watch out for valet parking price... $40??. I'll park a block away and walk next time. Easy check in/out. Noisy neighbors and cleaning crew on our floor. Will stay again.

Anniversary!

I wanted a special experience for our anniversary; everything was great, the hotel was very nice, great location. Desk staff was outstanding; when I asked for help with a phone number to the tower of america to make dinner reservations, the staff offered to do that for me, this is what I call service and a step above. However; on the night of my anniversary, we returned from a beautiful day of sight seeing, shopping and dinner, I wanted to cap off the evening with a carriage ride. My wife had been commenting all day about those rides so I decided to treat us to a ride. I asked the front desk for information on the carriage rides; they directed me to the concierge, when I asked the concierge if they had any information on the carriage rides, he said yes but could not even produce a business card, map, price list, he was rifleing thru his wallet for a phone numeber, while a second staff member was rifling thru the desk for information. All they could give me was a phone number after looking it up on the computor with a word of advice that they are very pricey, I asked if they new if they accepted credit cards, they said no they do not. Well the next day we were out late, and I approached one of the carriage drivers and asked if they accept credit cards, they said yes, we all do. I was very dissapointed in the concierge service or lack of it; since I wanted to cap off my anniversary night with a carriage ride, and did not based on the concierge mis-information on form of payment. But, I must say I would return again.

Good Hotel but did not meet the commitment

We booked a king size bed. We did not notice that it wasn't King size till we actually went to sleep at mid night. At that time we were too tired to complain about it or request a room change. At checkout next morning I did tell the guy on the reservation desk about the issue. He claimed that our room 1819 did have a king bed. We had no time to spend our valuable time validating our claim. --> If someone from Hitlon is reading please do check the bed size. Other than that the hotel was nice and clean, is well located in San Antonio on the river walk.

Late summer get away

The hotel and staff were excellent. Upon arrival we "up-graded" to a river view (45.00) but little did we know in our room at 5:30am the elevators start roaring!! All in all it was great (Minus the elevator traffic).

Girls weekend

Hotel has nice, clean rooms. Pool is pretty small, hot tub was not on from 10am to 1130am when we were there. Vending machine sodas are only drinks at pool, also lots of traffic noise as the pool is on the 5th floor by the streets.

Beautiful hotel and location

Stayed here on business, 2 nights. Room was wonderful and comfortable. Lighted makeup mirror was a bonus. Staff was wonderful. Each room with a small balcony. lower level with direct access to the riverwalk. I was attending a show at the convention center and was directly across the street. The only issue I had was the outrageous price for parking when staying at the hotel. $29 a day for self parking(not even sure where it was) $39 a day for valet.
