El Tropicano Riverwalk Hotel in San Antonio, Texas, opened in 1962 as the city's first hotel. Inspired by the casual glamour and popularity of Acapulco beach resorts, the hotel quickly gained a reputation with rock legends, movie stars and U.S. presidents. Today, the hotel gives off a retro, fun vibe, making it ideal for weddings, honeymoons, reunions, vacations or weekend getaways. Featuring state-of-the-art meeting facilities, the hotel can accommodate groups from 10 to 1,000.

Guests may also take advantage of free wireless Internet, an outdoor fire pit and pool, a full-service bar, full-service dining and on-site parking. El Tropicano's Strive Fitness Studio is a 3,000-square-foot fitness center featuring elliptical machines, treadmills, stationary bikes and digital spin bikes.

OK by Me

The small things that happened were minor but the pool was freezing. Understand the heater was fried but shouldn't take 5 days to fix. Would return.

Could be a little better

Nice hotel, not too inviting from the outside. Clean rooms, small bathroom.

I The good , bad and ugly

It was noisy--not people noise but a lot of door banging. --from the floors above and below . I checked for continental breakfast and it was listed, but in the AM they said it was not available because we booked with you. Not even coffee. The coffee pot in the room did not work. There was no safe , no mini bar

Entertainment tip: Long walk from hotel

The water taxi was fun but the street taxi was a bargain $20.00 for 4 vs 6.50 for 4
