Budrows has a wonderful prickley pear martini and the food is good. The Mall on the riverwalk is average. Not really worth going to unless you love sports. Lots of sports stores. Pescas in the Watermark is fabulous. The best food! Pricey but worth it. Top shelf.

Elegant Hotel

The Watermark is a beautiful hotel right on the riverwalk! The rooms were very nice, however the beds and pillows are a little uncomfortable. Pesca, thier restaurant over looking the riverwalk, was delightful and had delicious seafood dishes. I also thoroughly enjoyed the coconut tres leches cake!! I have been to many hotels downtown and by far the best hotel is the Watermark.

Mokara Hotel and Spa

very warm and inviting lobby..boutique hotel with attentive staff. Offered us beverages as we were checking in.. fresh fruit brought to the room... fantastic spa for hotel guests. the rooms are large and well appointed.. the only disappointment is the old tube style t.v. still in use..should have been upgraded years ago. Gorgeous roof top pool with lounge area.

One of the World's Best!

We have traveled the world, and this hotel stands out in our minds as being in the top 5. The staff may be the best we have ever experienced: extremely friendly, helpful and knowledgeable. One suggestion: if you plan to stay here, pay the extra amount to have a room overlooking the Riverwalk - definitely worth it! We would come back to this hotel in a heartbeat.

Take the Riverwalk Cruise on a weekday night - shorter lines. March is a good month to go - not too hot.

Local Favorite

Being a local, we try to stay at a different hotel in downtown every year. Mokara was fantastic in every way. The staff are exceptional. We may break our trend and take our local "staycation" every year to Mokara. Check out the spa...it's fantastic.

Market Square. Restaurant named Mi Tierra for traditional food and mariachi music. The staff of Mi Tierra are there to make your time with them great. Use the trolleys to get around town.

Great Getaway Location

The Watermark was an excellent choice for a relaxing, stress-free weekend. The room was excellent and the service we received at check-in was as well. The spa was wonderful, clean and offered all the options we were looking for in a hotel spa. I would definitely go back and recommend this hotel to a friend.

UNBELIEVABLE AWESOME PLACE TO STAY

The hotel was very centrally located to everything. It was like everything was in reach and not too far away --- right in the middle of restaurants and shopping and attractions. We were not use to being waited on hand and foot --- it was actually kinda nice. I would recommend this hotel if you wanted to stay on the Riverwalk. We will definitely go back but when it is much cooler.

The best restaurant was the Tower of America's. It is a place that is 752 feet high and the whole thing rotates around so you can see the city lights while you are dining. It would have to be a MUST!!!! You can't even tell you are moving -- it takes 1 hour to make a complete round --- the food was excellent also. The carmel cheesecake was awesome...

Great Location

The location was fantastic. It was very near everything that we wanted to do, but it seemed like it was just around the corner from the hustle & bustle of the Riverwalk (although it was actually on the Riverwalk). The only sour note was the quality of the concierges. Some were exceptional, while others were rude and atrocious. The rooms were spacious and quite comfortable.
