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.

Anniversary get-a-way

Our stay at Hotel Valencia was perfect. It was quiet and secluded from all the traffic. It is a little way from the center of the river walk which includes the mall and movie theater but, its about a 10 minute walk away. The hotel and the rooms are beautifully decorated and elegant. Contemporary modern is what I would call it. The service was excellent. The food from the hotel restaurant was also excellent even though it was just breakfast. Next time I go back to San Antonio this is where I will stay no doubt.

Fantastic Zen quality to the hotel.

The whole hotel is beautiful. The quiet and restfulness of it made the whole weekend. Just what we needed.Everything is within walking distance. It was great to valet park and not have to worry about the traffic or some where to park. Hope to go back in the future.
