Luxurious hotel just a short walk to the River Walk in San Antonio
Some of the 129 rooms at the Riverwalk Plaza Hotel & Suites on the south bank of the River Walk have a balcony, and many offer a view of the river itself, which is just 15 yards away. The fourth floor has a deck laden with teak lounge chairs, palm trees and heated pool. The fitness center nearby has towels, bottled water and plenty of TVs. The business center never gets a rest, as it is open 24 hours and offers printing, fax, notary and courier services, along with computer workstations. At check-in time, Otis Spunkmeyer cookies are served.
Highlights
  • Just 15 yards from the south bank of the River Walk
  • Full-service business center and banquet space with catering
  • Fitness center and heated, outdoor pool are open 24 hours a day.
Rooms

There are a few rooms with balconies overlooking the winding river. Request a balcony for that extra perk of lounging in the open air, riverside. The 129 guest rooms of the Riverwalk Plaza Hotel & Suites have been updated with a muted palate of warm earth tones and offer complimentary wired Internet, a two-line cordless speaker phone and 42-inch flat-screen TV with more than 60 cable channels, including HBO. All rooms feature a line of products from the palm-frond waving resort line, Tommy Bahama. Suites have comfy terrycloth robes waiting to be snuggled into. Smoking rooms are available on request

Couple getaway

Great hotel and great location. The only problem was that we could hear everything being said in the hallway and the room next door. Other than that it was excellent!

Good visit

The room was newly redecorated and is comfortable. They should have put in Queen beds in place of the full size beds. Overall the Hotel is good.

Good if with a rebate, good location, but don't expect too much

Location was good because it's beside of the Riverwalk, however it doesn't have direct access to the Riverwalk. Cleanliness leaves something to be desired. Average rate hotel.

Girls Trip

My girlfriends and I stayed here for a weekend trip, the hotel said it was right on the riverwalk but it is actually a short walk, the pool isn't that great and there is not a jacuzzi, the staff was very friendly and the beds were comfy. Overall it was a good experience.

Parking Fee Extra

While accommodation was quite all right, I was not prepared for the additional fee of $ 15 plus tax for parking our car . This should have been mentioned by you when offering this hotel !

Good for the night

Only needed a room for the night and it was fine for one night. Room was small but cozy. Front desk staff was nice and helpful. Everything in downtown was at a nice walking distance. Breakfast was not included with stay but it was good. Small bar was nice too but it hardly had any customers.
