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.

Good local hotel

I was attending a conference held at the Marriott Rivercenter, maybe half a mile away. I saved almost $100 a night by staying at the Riverwalk Plaza instead. The hotel was comfortable, if a little cramped. The bed was comfortable. The TV was huge. The Internet was free and worked well. In San Antonio the really interesting part of the Riverwalk is a mile-long loop off the main path of the river. The Riverwalk Plaza is at one end of the loop, where it T's into the main river. It was a little inconvenient for me, but not too bad. My only real complaint is that the previous guest had smoked in my room (despite it being a "no-smoking" room). The hotel did its best to air it out before I arrived, but the smell lingered for a couple days, and there were no other rooms available. Not really their fault.

Dining tip: Short walk from hotel

Iron Cactus restaurant. On the Riverwalk, near the NW end of the main loop. Tex-mex cuisine, but a big notch above the usual in ambiance. Very classy. Good service. Excellent food. Very reasonable prices. By far the best of the four or five Mexican restaurants I tried during my stay.

Not good for the money

Riverwalk plaza is located at the southern tip of the river. It is a long walk to the center, especially with the kids.Hotel has been remodeled, but not up to the expectation. We stayed at the same floor where the pool was located. It was very noisy and doors are not sealed good enough. Definetly not worth the money.

Riverwalk Getaway

Hotel was fine, employees were friendly and helpful. Location was in a good for walking to most everything. Just a bit far from the Mall, which probably saved me some money anyway.

Get a map. Streets in the downtown are somewhat confusing, at least for people accoustomed to square blocks. The Police are really patient with tourists and their lack of directional focus.

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 for What We Needed

The staff was amazingly helpful and knowledgable of the area.We never hesitated to ask them for assistance or opinions. Our room was well maintained and seemed like it was recently renovated. Even though the hotel did show some signs of wear, it was obvious from the activity throughout the hotel that other updates were being done. We enjoyed the continental breakfast but selection of items was limited. Both my travelmate and I agreed that the beds were the most comfortable we've ever used. We slept very well throughout our stay.
