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.

Girls Trip

My girlfriends and I stayed here for a weekend trip, the hotel said it was right on the riverwalk but it is actually a short walk, the pool isn't that great and there is not a jacuzzi, the staff was very friendly and the beds were comfy. Overall it was a good experience.

Parking Fee Extra

While accommodation was quite all right, I was not prepared for the additional fee of $ 15 plus tax for parking our car . This should have been mentioned by you when offering this hotel !

Good for the night

Only needed a room for the night and it was fine for one night. Room was small but cozy. Front desk staff was nice and helpful. Everything in downtown was at a nice walking distance. Breakfast was not included with stay but it was good. Small bar was nice too but it hardly had any customers.

Wonderful Time

It was nice to be able to open the window to get fresh air and check the temperature. The room was nicely laid out, but the only annoyance was the fact that in the bathroom there were no towel racks, except for in the shower whick rendered them wet. The restaurant downstairs had excellent food and we enjoyed ourselves very much.

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.
