Weekend getaway

The location was ideal for visiting the Riverwalk and Alamo. You can walk to the shops, restaurants, mall, IMAX, Tower of the Americas, markets, and other attractions. Parking on site was overpriced but a public garage is conveniently located across the street at a more reasonable price. The bathroom could have been bigger but was certainly adequate.

The IMAX has a 45 minute show on the Alamo that starts on the hour all day long. It is just a block away. Go see the movie before visiting the Alamo and it will bring everything into perspective.

On the San Antonio Riverwalk

Omni La Mansion del Rio is not the fanciest hotel in downtown SA, but the staff make up for any deficiencies in that area. They are excellent and go out of their way to be helpful. The rooms are very comfortable though not wildly stylish. My only issue is with the coffee maker that resides in the entertainment center. You need to plug it in each time but to do so requires some agility. Once you make the coffee do not put out the shelf it is on as you will dump the contents of the cup into your dresser drawer! I would certainly recommend this hotel. The location coupled with the staff can't be beat!

Very Good Experience

Perfect Location close to the nightclub and food district of the River Walk. Very friendly staff. Older hotel as reflected in the overall condition (cracks in the marble floors etc) but well maintained. Restaurant is a little on the pricey side, but excellent service.

Try the Iron Cactus restaurant. Excellent Tequila bar with over 30 varieties. Excellent Mexican Food (not Tex-Mex). Wait staff very friendly.

Fabulous location - even better staff!

The hotel is in the perfect location for the ultimate enjoyment of the San Antonio Riverwalk. The staff was genuinely friendly, attentive and always ready to be of assistance. The hotel restaurant is quite nice for a relaxing, better than average continental dinner - It overlooks the Riverwalk - but is out of the heat and hustle/bustle on busy nights - A great spot to get away from the noise but with all of the views of the river and happenings. The rooms are spacious and could use updating...but extremely clean and not worn, just dated...

Weekend getaway

My wife and I spent a couple of days here for our anniversary. We opted for the Omni due to its location and the pictures and reviews seemed positive. I must say that I have stayed in much nicer hotels for less money. We were on the first floor, away from the River and the street noise was horrible. There was a parking garage across the street and constant noise from both car traffic as well as pedestrians. Also note that parking was ridiculously priced. I will not stay at an Omni again unless my options are very limited. It's a $125 to $150/Night hotel priced much higher than that.

Great Hotel...Great Location

Very clean and friendly hotel. Perfectly located above the busiest and most fun part of the boardwalk. Their sister hotel, The Mokara Hotel & Spa, is just across the bridge and has a great workout room plus a rooftop pool and hot tub to use.

Very much pleased with my stay! I felt the accomidations were comfortable. I didn't know that the hotel was a registered historical site. The hotel is ideally set on the riverwalk and utilizing the sister hotel's work out facility and spa a bonus!

Riverwalk getaway

We had a great time.... The best access to the Riverwalk.... Fell in love with the spa... Only complaints would be the cost of parking.... Almost didn't need the car.... And the per day parking was a lil over the top!

Park across the street for $10 overnight.... But be careful... If you come and go out of there it might end up costing you more than valet it at the omni!!
