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.

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

The staff was helpful and friendly.

The staff was helpful and friendly. The rooms were clean. When I asked for extra towels and an extra trash can they were delivered quickly. The room was a little small and the sink was in the bathroom. This was somewhat problematic for 3 women but would be fine for smaller groups. However, the riverwalk was beautiful to walk along. There was no free breakfast, but since we were told that when I called we brought breakfast bars with us. There was a fridge.

Staff of the hotel

The only thing which i can put in my review as a "bad"one is the staff of the hotel. They weren't welcoming at all. They cald us two times for smoking outside the room which wasn't prohibited. The hotel is overally 3 stars.

Good Location

The location was worth the money. Don't expect too much or you'll be disappointed. It's better than a Super 8 and definetly not a Marriott. If all you do is sleep there this should be your choice. You won't break your pocket book for a bed!

First time in Texas

Had a great time staying at this hotel. My room was very nice and the staff was VERY friendly and helpful. I would definitely recommend this hotel to anyone I knew traveling in the area. The attached restaurant was also delicious and reasonably priced.

Business Travel good for convention center

I enjoyed my three day stay at the Riverwalk Plaza hotel. I was in town for a business conference at the Gonzales convention center. Although I walked about 15 minutes to the center each way, I could make the entire walk along the beautiful riverwalk. I really liked the hotel, and as a business traveler I did not need lots of amenities. I liked relaxing by the pool for a brief time. My room was clean, staff was helpful, and everything functioned well, hairdryer was a very nice model. I also liked the in room coffee pot made four cups. I do not like the on-cup kind - i drink a lot of coffee. The hotel is well decorated, and lives up to the 3 start rating.

HIGHLY NOT RECOMMENDED

CUSTOMER SERVICE SUCKS,VERY UNPROFESSIONAL-STAFF SLEEPS ON JOB. HOTEL LOCATION IS VERY DECEPTIVE. PARKING SUCKS AND IS OVERPRICED AT $14.99 PER DAY, CHEAPER ACROSS THE STREET. ONSITE RESTAURANT SERVES GARBAGE. NO ONE SEEMS TO KNOW THE CHECK IN OR CHECK OUT PROCESS. MAID SERVICE HATES THEIR JOB. NOT TO MENTION WHEN YOU SHOWER THE DIRTY WATER FILLS THE TUB BECAUSE IT WOULD NOT DRAIN PROPERLY. BEST ADVICE...DRIVE AS FAST AS YOU CAN AWAY FROM THIS TORTURE CHAMBER. WOULD NEVER STAY AGAIN OR RECOMMEND. WORST HOTEL EVER.
