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

Features

The Riverwalk Plaza Hotel & Suites is close to Brooks City Air Force Base, Fort Sam Houston and Randolph Air Force Base, and make every effort to accommodate guests be they veterans, currently enlisted or visiting any nearby base for any reason.

Close proximity to the fun

Our experience at the hotel was positive. It is in close proximity to the Riverwalk and the Market. Safe area and clean rooms. However, when we checked into the hotel, we had expected a room with a view of the river and a balcony, but the room we were given did not have a balcony. Disappointment. The hotel was full so we had to wait two days to be moved. The staff was very friendly and polite in answering our questions, which was greatly appreciated.

Sightseeing tip: Short walk from hotel

Prior to visiting the Alamo, we saw the iMax movie about the Alamo at the Rivercenter Mall. It made seeing the Alamo far more meaningful. Both are within walking distance to the hotel.

Don't expect to be pampered.

The location is very convenient to local attractions, including the Riverwalk and the Alamo. Service is poor to nonexistent. Tried room service at 4 p.m. and it was not available. The "Business Center" is a kiosk with a single, poorly performing Mac and printer. Based on the lack of a crowd, I was not even going to try the in hotel food.

It's good

The rooms were clean, the staff was nice, the problem is when you have a car and you pay 18 dlls for a day just to park in the hotel? Well seems a lot for just to use it few hours a day. On the other hand, its pretty near the riverwalk, the mall, a market and the tower. So i guess its even.

Below average experience

The WiFi only worked for a few hours the first day and was still not fixed when we left 2 days later. They were waiting for tech support. Our room keys pretty unreliable. Had to change them out twice. None of the equipment in the fitness center worked. The staff is nice and tried to be understanding. Won't stay here again though.

San Antonio vacation

My stay at the Riverwalk Plaza Hotel was very enjoyable. It was near to everthing that I wanted to do. The staff was very pleasant. The only thing that left me a little worried, was that for some reason they could not check me out when I left at four o'clock in the morning.

Not Bad

It's in a good location, but does not have direct access to the River Walk. You must leave the hotel and walk across the street then down to the River Walk.Some of the rooms have balconies...so be specific when you reserve your room. It was clean. The staff was okay. The restaurant was good but too expensive. I would stay again because the price was good and the location was convenient to everything. It cost $12 a day to park at the hotel in addition to the room charges.

Nothing special

This hotel looked nicer on the website, and was not as nice as it appeared. It was not terrible, but you can probably find a much nicer hotel for not much more cost.

Avoid

These folks cannot even provide a working coffee maker, made no effort to replace when reported. Instead, they never showed up to even service the room. This hotel should be avoided at all costs. They have proven without a doubt that some people should not be involved with hotel industry.
