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.

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.

good value, not great location

A good value but not in the best part of town. Being close to the river walk is a plus as is the fitness center which is small but clean ,cool ,bright and well equipped. Hallways are a bit dark.

Restaurants along the River Walk are fun and festive (about a 10 minute walk) as is the King William region on S Alamo (5 minute drive).

Great place to stay

We went for a weekend getaway. It was perfect with the riverwalk just steps away. The Alamo and the mall were just a short walk away. We ran out of milk for our baby. We called down and the front desk got us milk from the lounge. Couldn't have asked for more.

Very nice hotel, at the River Walk

This is our 3rd trip to San Antonio to visit the River Walk. It is the 2nd time we have stayed at the River Walk Plaza Hotel. It's location is close to all the major tourist attractions in the River Walk area. The hotel is modern, clean and the staff are knowlegeable and friendly. The River Walk is worth seeing any time of year but especially when it is decorated for the Christmas season. We would recommend this hotel to those who want to be out, seeing the attractions San Antonio has to offer and wants to enjoy many of the restaurants along the River Walk.

The River Walk Plaza is on the River Walk. You only have to walk about a block and a half and you are in the restaurant, shopping, and at the tour boat rides that make the River Walk a tourist destination.

Great time, near everything!!

The service was great, [...] at the counter was very nice. Every employee that we came in contact with was very polite and friendly. The hotel is an old hotel that has been renovated many times and is very nice. It is in the middle of everything. We walked (45 year old, 10 year old and 8 year old) to the rivercenter mall, the alamo, and to all the restaurants on the riverwalk with no problem at all. I plan to go there again. For the price it was great!!

Comfortable place and reasonably priced,

The hotel was very nice, clean, and located within walking distance of the Alamo and the Reiverwalk. There was one thing that surprised me, there was a parking fee of $12.00 per day plus tax, I was not aware of that until I checked in. But overall we liked the place, they have a nice pool area. The staff are friendly and helpful.
