Great getaway with the girls

The staff service was awesome, very attentive and helpful. The room was clean and very fancy, the restroom was also clean but a few rust marks on the tile. The location is perfect right by the river walk, not the heart of the river walk but very convenient.

Beautiful & convient

The hotel was fantastic & within short walking distance to great attractions. The beds were hard & the pillows were squishy, made for a difficult time sleeping.

Great location, good bar & restaurant too.

Great location on downtown San Antonio. Right on the Riverwalk and about 6 blocks from most bars and restaurants, which makes it close but not noisy. The rooms are very spacious and the staff friendly. Parking is not included though and a bit expensive since they only have valet available, but there is a very accesible city garage just a block away. There's a restaurant called Texas de Brazil just in front the hotel which is amazing.

Excellent experience

The location couldn't be better as it is directly off of a main road and the river walk itself. Beautifully appointed and very clean. The staff were universally pleasant, eager and helpful. Parking is valet only, which is both a drawback and a bonus.

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.

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.
