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

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.

Their web page makes this place shine but don't pick it from that. It is a two star at best not worth the money no matter how close to the Riverwalk.

Overall Great Place to stay

PERFECT LOCATION downtown riverwalk - if you like a quieter experience (which I do). Free bottled water and pretzels in room. Fancy shower, but a little confusing. Room and Hotel in general (lobby and hallways) were really cold. Turned off A/C in room and it was still freezing. There was an extra brown blanket in the closet though.. Nice flat screen TV in room, but most channels were fuzzy. Bar Salona was really small - and drinks were overpriced. We had well drinks screwdriver and rum and coke for $5 each on a Sunday night. The overnight front desk girl was most helpful in giving me directions to the closest walgreens pharmacy. My only main complaint: PARKING GARAGE.. while it was only $12.98 to park there for a night.. it was an unsavory experience. there's a gate that is supposed to open when you drive up.. It doesn't work very well. Had to call front desk 4x during my stay to have maintenance come out to the garage and open it for us.

Dining tip: Short walk from hotel

Very close to the riverwalk - well the quieter part of it anyway.. leave your vehicle in the garage and walk downtown - take in the scenery and the lovely architecture. There is plenty of signage to point you in the direction you want to go.

Hotel Good ,food not good

The room was very nice altho a bit overpriced for the size of the room. was really quite small but it was clean even with the dated and chipped and well worn furniture in the room.The hotel restaraunt and the coffey shop were way over priced and the food was not tasty at all. The closeness to the attractions downtown was average. None of the riverwalk boat/taxi operators knew where the hotel was or had even heard of it. would prob. not stay there again.15 dollars a day to park your car on top of the room charge.

Good Location, Rooms not well-maintained

The hotel was within walking distance of most sights. The bathroom had the most problems. The toilet rocked when you sat on it, and part of the shower fixture fell off. One of the days the housekeeping staff came in and made up the room, but did not leave any towels, coffee, etc. When we called the front desk, they had not sent any of the items up for over 2 hours. We called again, and finally got some towels. I would not stay here again.

Take the narrated boat tour on the Riverwalk. It is very inexpensive and informative.

Horrible

Paper thin walls, you can hear your neighbors cough. The neighbors hit our wall and the clock fell off the nightstand. River view rooms are...eh. And we left an item in our room and I called once and the female was not helpful at all. She didn't offer to find our item or contact lost and found. But I called another time and the young gentleman is very helpful. No airport shuttle or shuttles to sea world, six flags, etc. the $49 days inn was a lot closer to the mall and riverwalk. Not the best trip ever...kinda wish I could do it over again.

Stay with Riverwalk

Parking was a hastle, TVs were old and had only 22 channels, staff was robotic, the pool I liked, I stayed in a non smoking room and it smelled like cigars when I first entered the room. I usual don't complain and appreciate the hotels I stay at but this one was the worst experience.

Came for my brothers graduation from lackland afb

Not so great experience would highly reccomend spending a little more for the Hyatt or better hotel. We arrived and there was no parking at all had to go back to the front desk and then from there they had to open. Up the basement for us to park. Asked for a non smoking room however it smelled like smoke. Pool was weak and no hot tub. This hotel looks ok online but not so great in person. My advice is pay more for a better hotel.

Good Riverwalk value

On the River, a few steps from the action on the Riverwalk. Nice rooms, nice pool, kitcshy decor, so- so restaurant, but you'll eat on the Riverwalk. Helpful staff. No convenient PC access and weak WIFI connection. Parking very convenient, if you can handle the 20 degree driveway.

Sightseeing tip: Long walk from hotel

For sightseers, the Steves Mansion in the nearby King William district is a treat (long walk). For local art, the Villita Village is a good stop (short walk). For eaters, no need to leave the Riverwalk.
