Great hotel, minor problems

Really enjoyed the the stay at this hotel--very unique and comfortable. Only two problems: The pillows (we both woke up with sore necks), which were maybe a little too thick. Also, at checkout time, the valet parking service is very slow. They could improve their service by moving cars that don't get claimed in a timely manner so other vehicles can be brought up. One SUV sat directly in front of the hotel for about 25 minutes before anyone showed up to drive it. Several other cars sat empty at the curb for long periods as well. Meanwhile, other cars were unable to be brought up due to the congestion.

Great weekend getaway!

The hotel was right there at the riverwalk, easy access to all the shops and restaurants and The alamo. The room was very clean, not much of a view but not bad either. Valet parking was a bit pricey but worth it to not have to worry about our vehicle. We would definitely (and soon) go back.

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.
