Great staff!

Excellent welcome and helpful staff. The only problem was the musty smell in the room. Febreeze would come in handy. Mustiness may be from it being an old hotel.

Great location as it is right on the river walk. Typical big city homeless everywhere. Bathroom in room on the small side. Staff very friendly. Room could have been cleaner. Would stay there again.

It was everything we had hoped for!!

This was our 27th anniversary... so we road in on my CAN AM Spyder with a trailer... the staff was super helpful and found us an awesome parking spot that allowed us to detach the trailer from my bike. Joe the Concierge was fantastic - I asked for suggestions to make the stay extra special - he setup a custom set of flowers, champagne, choc strawberries, rose petals in that formed a heart on the bed and sprinkled on the floor... and even dinner reservations at Las Canarias and the waiter was fantastic too... knew our names... knew it was our anniversary... they seated at a special table with a view of the river... it as just perfect! The meal was excellent and special things like dessert, etc were all directed toward our anniversary. By the way, the front desk staff was super helpful and extremely friendly. Check-in and Check-out was very smooth and quick. The property itself is very well kept and clean. From the pool to the garden area with sprinkling fountains, one can easily find a place to relax and take a breath. The hallways were clean and air conditioned. There was no weird smell that you sometimes get at older properties. Plenty of elevators allowed you multiple access points to the upper floors. You even had the option of using the facilities of their sister property across the river... from their workout room to their pool... which gives you options (not that we needed them but it was nice to know). I cannot imagine staying anywhere else... this will be our hotel when we return to San Antonio.

Close to everything

Down the hall and down a few steps and you are on the Riverwalk, the Alamo only a couple blocks away. Very clean, staff was friendly and helpful. I would definitely stay here again.

Perfect location

Nice staff! We would stay there again for sure:) We could walk to most everything (the Alamo, The river walk, Buckhorns museum) The room was nice and comfortable, not overly big, but still nice. They had large thick towels, a shower that really put out the water and balconies over the river,soooo pretty!

Location, Location, Location....Style and Sevice!

I live 60 miles from San Antonio and I have friends coming to visit me, San Antonio is the place to stay. La Mansion del Rio is the 3rd hotel I've tried. I will not stay anywhere else...the location is perfect, you can step out onto the riverwalk and there is a bridge to the othe side, located to all you would want. All though the hotel is older, it has history, charm and is clean. The staff was great! If you want the old "Texas" charm...their riverwalk rooms with balconies can't be beat! I'm already scheduled to stay there again next month!
