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

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

Not what I expected

this hotel needs a face lift. It is very dark in the hallways and rooms. The rooms were ok. not bad, not good. The pool was not heated so too cold to swim in. What surprised me most though was the fee for using the hotel parking garage. This was not advertised anywhere and added another $12 dollars per day. The location was on the outskirts of town center and not the best place one might want to walk after dark. And lastly no restaurant. I was disappointed overall.

Should've picked something else

There wasn't much parking space. The "river view" was not worth the extra fee. It was a good walk from the hotel to the riverwalk, not as close as they lead you to believe. I think I would choose a different hotel next time. The bed however was really comfortable, and we did have a good nights sleep.

Riverwalk Getaway

Hotel was fine, employees were friendly and helpful. Location was in a good for walking to most everything. Just a bit far from the Mall, which probably saved me some money anyway.

Nightlife tip: Short walk from hotel

Get a map. Streets in the downtown are somewhat confusing, at least for people accoustomed to square blocks. The Police are really patient with tourists and their lack of directional focus.

Just ok

My husband and I stayed there for 2 nights on Labor Day weekend. The hotel is across the street from the river walk and you have to walk quite a ways before you get to any resturants or night life. The hotel was older and a little dumpy. The rooms were better than I thought they would be given what the outside looked like. The breakfast was icky and crowded. Kids were running around everywhere! Next time I would try to stay at a hotel right on the river walk. It was just ok...

Thats it?

We came to town for a kid free night away, opted to pay extra for the "view" of the river walk and ended up with a view of the dead end and a construction site. That was our wake up call at 7am, jack hammers and diesel engines. If a view is what you are looking for, go somewhere else, otherwise go for the king sized bed and some ear plugs.

Recycle Recycle Recycle

Check-in took ages, but otherwise good stay from staff perspective. Reclycling at breakfast by dishwashing rather than the plastic disposable nightmare we encountered was upsetting - needlessly plastic for basic breakfast items.

Business Trip

The hotel was located close to restuarants, Riverwalk, sites and downtown. It was an easy walk to anything we needed to do, including our meetings. It was under some renovations, so there was no restaurant or gift store - but they had a nice, complimentary breakfast to make up for those things. It was quiet and clean - and the staff was very friendly and helpful.

Some very nice restaurants (including Biga on the Banks) are a short walk - and the Riverwalk...full of great restaurants can be reached in 5-10 minutes!

Great location

The hotel is a bit dated and the lobby is not the nicest, but the rooms were very clean and comfortable. This hotel is close to many of the tourist attractions. This hotel also had a continental breakfast every morning. It was all cold products but it was nice. The staff was very helpful and pleasant.
