No fun for kids- good for adult time

This is a beautiful hotel and great if you want to relax without children. You can lounge in their gigantic and dimly lit lounge. They have a nice bar with a dance floor. The room was spacious and had a great view to riverwalk but husband slept on floor because bed was too soft. My kids were unable to go swimming because there is no pool. This is beautiful hotel and staff is very helpful. If you like soft beds- this is great!

Reasonable choice

Well, the hotel is dark but thats not an issue. It charges 29 dollars for parking, but we parked at Houston St Garage which is 1 block away and is 10 dollars daily: no brainer (particularly when valet retrieval can take up to 30 min). No on site pool or sauna which is disappointing. We asked for 2 queen beds, which the clerk couldn't accommodate because the hotel was too busy: understandable but it almost guaranteed a sub-optimal experience. Citrus is their main restaurant, which is CLOSED on sunday (bummer). We picked this hotel also with the fact that it is on riverwalk. Well, its at the very corner of the riverwalk, secluded area. If you imagine your stay as one where you walk down to find yourself amidst the hustle of riverwalk, this is not the place you are looking for. Rooms with river view is essentially a silent river with dead houses around. Rooms are good, clean, with nice decor. Fridge is packed with drinks (of course you have to pay for what you consume), but there is no extra room for that piece of left over pie you brought with you. Lobby looks nice, and there's place for you to sit and relax. Overall, a little more pricey for what you get. I will probably book a different hotel next time.

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.

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.

July 4th Getaway

When I arrived they told me I would be staying in a double bed room for one out of the three nights only, even though I booked all three nights. The manager fixed that the next day. The front desk personnel were very clueless about many things concerning the hotel. The rooms were clean, and spacious. There was no pool or jacuzzi in the hotel. Great location near the RiverWalk. Overall it was an OK experience, nothing special.

Loud and no concierge

The look of the hotel is wonderfully modern. The main problems are: no concierge to assist with recommendations. The lighting is so poor you feel there has been a brown out. And the DJ that plays until 2 am keeps the room with the boom boom boom. The worst part is when the DJ leaves and all the revelers are cat calling in the street. There is also no pool. I will say Isreal, the Valet, was VERY kind and helpful.
