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.

Suitable for conference travel

The hotel was adequate for my needs. It was clean although a bit worn around the edges. The mattress was a bit soft for my taste, but I woke up with no aches or pains. I attended a conference in San Antonio. I thought the hotel would be closer to the convention center than it actually was, but found a short cut via Villita street that cut walking time in half. The hotel is right on the river walk, so you can take the scenic route to all the downtown tourist attractions. Although It's on the quiet end, I felt perfectly safe walking to and from the convention center at night. I think the best thing the hotel has going for it is it's staff who were friendly, responsive, and helpful.

Riverwalk Plaza is little gem sitting in the midst of the glitter of Riverwalk,

Riverwalk Plaza is little gem sitting in the midst of the glitter of Riverwalk, San Antonio. The staff--from the front desk to the custodians and cleaning ladies--are friendly and helpful. The rooms are clean, comfortable and spacious; we especially enjoy the balcony rooms on the river. Although we didn't use the pool, it looked delightful. The hotel is accessible to the bustle of the shops and restaurants along the river and within walking distance of the Mercado, the Cathedral, the Alamo and Riverwalk Center (mall) and many other restaurants and stores. Importantly, parking is affordable and easy when you stay at this hotel. There are fancier and finer hotels, but this hotel is a great choice at a very reasonable price.

The hotel was very clean.

The hotel was very clean. The staff was very friendly. Every staff menber we passed by said hello. I special compliment to Phillip who helped us with the luggage cart. Emily was also nice when when checked in. When we checked out, the morning desk clerks were also friendly. They told us to have a safe trip home which was nice to hear.

Had a great stay at the Riverwalk Plaza.

Had a great stay at the Riverwalk Plaza. The hotel is very clean, nice, and modern, while still retaining a San Antonio feel. Pool view rooms are nice, with a great view of the 4th floor outdoor pool. Rooms are updated and nice. Walking distance to many good establishments on the Riverwalk.

This is a very pretty, very historical looking hotel.

This is a very pretty, very historical looking hotel. I enjoyed the staff and the look, but was a little disappointed in the comfort. The bed was as hard as a rock - the leather chairs were better. The overall appearance of the room was good. At little cramped, but good. This hotel is not really on the Riverwalk, it is close, but not on it. I would go back, but ask for a better view.
