Hotel Valencia Riverwalk

4.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

Excellent hotel with friendly, courteous staff. Room was very comfortable, clean with for me perfectly comfortable bed. Riverwalk and it’s sights, stores and restaurants readily available. Would certainly stay at Valencia again!!

Quick in and out for business but loved the hotel. Staff was great and walking distance to river walk and close to other downtown meeting places. Two great coffee spots ( one Starbucks) right outside the door

Returning to SA after a long stay away, we enjoyed our weekend at the Valencia. Employees in general are very attentive and pleasant. No issues with cleanliness or upkeep of the room. The only couple points on the minus side: rooms tend to be a bit dark and if you are on a lower floor overlooking the street, car and truck noise is quite strong. We also tried the hotel Argentina-inspired restaurant. Not bad, not great, better than most places on the Riverwalk. Would I go back? yes. Would a call this a destination hotel? no.

Loved the hotel and the room. The free breakfast bar was just mediocre. But, overall I loved the hotel itself.

Excellent hotel with one problem. The room thermostat did not work correctly. Room felt stuffy although thermostat was set at 65 upon arrival and stayed there throughout.

We had easy access to all of the sites and activities. The staff was always kind and helpful. It was a wonderful stay!

We immensely enjoyed our stay at Hotel Valencia and would highly recommend it!

Booked this hotel because I wanted to stay on the Riverwalk, it seemed like a pretty hotel and there was an option of a Riverwalk view. The hotel was pretty but the Riverwalk view I paid extra for wasn’t great, could honestly barely see it. Also the entrance to the Riverwalk from the hotel was through the restaurant which wasn’t completely convenient, and its location on the Riverwalk is pretty much on the dead side, you have to walk farther down for the more occupied Riverwalk. I guess in that sense if you are looking for a place to stay in walking distance and like it quiet this would be a good option however I was looking for a hotel closer to the mall and the more lively side of the Riverwalk. There was a “free breakfast” which included cereal, fruit, and yogurt, that’s about it. On the upside the hotel was beautiful and the staff was very friendly.

When I booked there was no mention of renovations ongoing which affected access, check in and noise for lower floors. I think the hotel should let folks know that planned renovations are going to be underway during the period people book, and rates discounted as appropriate. My rental car was valet parked during my stay, and the valet staff was friendly, timely, and remembered and welcomed people as they came for their cars! Impressive! Despite that, the hotel staff was very helpful and friendly, the rooms clean, spacious and conveniently located on the RiverWalk. I would stay here again without hesitation.

I love it, friendly staff. My mom need it a wheel chair and they give me the facility for all my stay there

Loud construction waking visitors early. Hoped to relax, but woke exhausted....... staff was friendly and helpful. I was placed next to the elevator which I should have asked to move. ☘️☘️☘️

My daughter and I came for s quick trip for 3 days during her college break and had a great time .The hotel was in the end stages of its renovations and most of it was completed.It had a updated look with a touch of contemporary/southwestern mix and sleek design.The rooms were very spacious and comfortable .Our view was of the courtyard.The breakfast was quite good and included in our price .The staff was very accommodating and attentive. There was construction going on but did not hear any noise on our seventh level accomodation. recomendations for dinner was helpful.Overall a great place to stay close enough to main attractions but in a quieter section of river walk .

We had a lovely experience. Staff took very good care of us. They were all very courteous and quick to assist. We will definitely be returning!

Our room smelled of mildew. Room was small and had no table, a small desk/shelf and one chair. Free internet includes one device. Free breakfast is very light and drinks are self served from wine bottles with latching tops, not very convenient but trendy... i like functional not trendy. Half of the lobby was closed for construction during our stay. Not by any means impressive but decent and at the end of the busy section of the river walk.

excellent staff, overall great hotel, the bar menu can improve the check in was late but they made up by giving us free dinner, a bottle of wine and chocolates. Definitely would stay again

Disappointed that remodeling was going on in the lobby. Loved that it was right on the Riverwalk.

The hotel was under construction and there was no concierge available. We wound up going next door to the Holiday Inn to get help with sightseeing. The hotel did give us breakfast vouchers to make up for the inconvenience. Once the construction is finished it should be a nice hotel to spend your vacation at.

The hotel was under construction when we checked in - the front desk/check in area was crammed into a small corner and there wasn't much standing room or a place to sit while you waited your turn. That was the only downfall, but really wasn't much of an inconvenience. Our room was wonderful (river walk view that we didn't have to pay extra for,yay!) a complimentary bottle of wine because the property was an Orbitz VIP hotel (double yay!) and the bed was sooooo comfortable it was hard to get up in the morning! Bathroom was a nice size and very clean. We also ordered room service for dinner which was really yummy. Overall, great expierence & I will return!

The hotel is under construction. I was very disappointed. It's not worth the money.

The night manager that greeted me was exceptional. She was very apoplectic for the the construction. I was okay with it, even the smell of sulfar when I got to my room. It was late and she was very sweet, even offering to pay for my food if I did not like it. It was late, I did not arrive till past midnight so I did not complain that it tasted like sewer. However, over the course of two day at 200 plus a night, it got worse. No one cleaned my room, had to ask for towels, and when I complained about the smell, room service came up and dropped towels and sprayed my 100 perfume all over the room. No one on Orbitz or the hotel ever mentioned this hotel was under construction. Lesson learned. Hire the night manager and don't boom with Orbitz

great choice to avoid gigantic properties

Returning to SA after a long stay away, we enjoyed our weekend at the Valencia. Employees in general are very attentive and pleasant. No issues with cleanliness or upkeep of the room. The only couple points on the minus side: rooms tend to be a bit dark and if you are on a lower floor overlooking the street, car and truck noise is quite strong. We also tried the hotel Argentina-inspired restaurant. Not bad, not great, better than most places on the Riverwalk. Would I go back? yes. Would a call this a destination hotel? no.
