Nice location but...

We were happy with the room for the price but there were two things I wish we had been aware of before making reservations. First, there is no onsite parking so plan on adding $20/ $30 valet parking per day. Second, if you are getting a river view room make sure that your room is no lower than the 6th floor because the restaurant/ bar connected to the hotel on the river side can be VERY loud. One night the party went 'til midnight, another night 'til 2:30 a.m.. On the positive side, the staff was very friendly and helpful and the location allowed easy access to all available activities.

Feel of luxury

We didn't get to spend enough time at the Valencia, but the room was something special (comfortable bed), the grounds were beautiful, and they took care of us. It is a luxurious hotel that we got at a great rate. The only negative was the very expensive valet parking.

Hotel Valencia is a bargain

I am a travel writer, so I am relatively picky. We were extremely surprised at how well appointed the hotel/room was and felt that while it is larger than a "boutique" hotel,it was like we were in a boutique hotel the entire stay. The restaurant is really great and guests get a lot of quiet attention. We will stay there on our next trip to San Antonio. Thanks for the tip and the booking. By the way, a pool would have been nice in the hotel, but the temps were in the 50's while we were there and if we had wanted to swim, we could have stayed at home.

Mi Tierra Mexican Restaurant (since 1941). This is the real taste of San Antonio.

great place for couples

i thought the dark atmosphere was very good for a romantic getaway. Close to market, restaurants, and river center. Right on riverwalk. Helpful hotel employees. The bed was extremely comfortable.

Wonderful Weekend Excursion

Hotel Valencia is a beautiful hotel. The rooms can switch from dark and romantic to bright and upbeat with an easy twist to the window blinds. The location was wonderful as we were right at the start of the Riverwalk's horseshoe so it was easy to get around if we desired to avoid the congestion by the restaurants. The Riverboat Tour was conveniently accessible from Hotel Valencia as were many of the tourist attractions. Thank you for a wonderful and luxurious stay!

Money-saving tip: Not Applicable

Avoid the Wydham tour of their new hotel! All the freebies they promised (free cruise, free Riverboat Tour, free IMAX tickets, free dinner, etc) aren't worth the time as it would easily take 2-3 hours of precious vacation time, even though we were told it was only 1.5hrs long. Also, skip Papa Jim's Botanica was a very weird shop of voodoo stuff, but laid out similar to a Walgreen's or other pharmacy. We thought it would be fun, but it was just weird... and not an interesting weird.
