We walked through the Mercado...great place to shop/eat and drink. Within a few blocks. Everything is within walking distance...food, Alamo, and the best thing the Riverwalk was right next to the hotel...

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.

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.
