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.
Highlights
  • Just 15 yards from the south bank of the River Walk
  • Full-service business center and banquet space with catering

All rooms feature a line of products from the palm-frond waving resort line, Tommy Bahama. Suites have comfy terrycloth robes waiting to be snuggled into. Smoking rooms are available on request

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.

Recycle Recycle Recycle

Check-in took ages, but otherwise good stay from staff perspective. Reclycling at breakfast by dishwashing rather than the plastic disposable nightmare we encountered was upsetting - needlessly plastic for basic breakfast items.

Nice updated room

I liked the hotel and the updates that have been made. They could use new TV's for the room. Nice and clean in the rooms. It was a busy weekend and they could have got the breakfast area cleaned a little better and quicker. The main problem was that we had to pay an addition $12 a day for our rental car to be parked in the garage.

I thought it was right on the main part of the Riverwalk but it was not. That was a little disappointing

Just Right

Very clean hotel. Right across the street from the Riverwalk and within walking distance to several other attractions. We traveled over the President's Day holiday. The restaurant and bar were both closed.

old, good bed and A/C indoor parking

End of Riverwalk area. good location for most of San Antonio downtown and tourist areas, not as expensive at the big hotels but just as close. Service was very good except for the dining. Slow, coffee was bad everywhare in San Antonio? even at starbucks? service at breakfast/dinner was very slow and food was only fair but prices were high. typical for any tourist area. I would not return to San Antonio for any but work or visit friends. Overrated city for tourists

OK

Parking on weekend was over crowded and I expext the summer would be the same. Not nearly enough. Pool area nice except deck whick is in very rough shape. Free breakfast ends at 9:30 which is early if you like to sleep in on vacation which we do.

Great location, OK hotel

THe front desk staff was polite and helpful. Once I checked in and headed up to my room, a couple in the elevator said, "I hope your bed is better than ours. It was so hard we couldn't sleep." I had no issues with the bed, I slept fine. One thing I noticed several times though, when guests leave trash or other items (one was a pizza box) outside their room in the hallway, it stays there for hours, even overnight till 11am the next day but the room itself was very clean. The pool was nice, not heated but it was so hot, I enjoyed the cool water. The deck chairs did not recline at all, just straight backed. Overall I'd rate it an 8 because it was well priced and at a perfect location, across the street from the start of the riverwalk.

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.

Good if with a rebate, good location, but don't expect too much

Location was good because it's beside of the Riverwalk, however it doesn't have direct access to the Riverwalk. Cleanliness leaves something to be desired. Average rate hotel.
