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 location, just redone, good staff

Parking is $12/day extra. Hotel on a branch of the RiverWalk, but lacks direct access. Our recently tastefully refurbished room was better planned than many. Breakfast was better than average in pleasant cafe.

RiverWalk restaurants are either very high-end or part of a chain. Avoid the steak place: High prices, but not that great.

So-So place

Hotel was ok - charged us $12.00 a day to park in their garage which I think is bull also promised a cont. breakfast which we never got. People were friendly & service was good. Overall was not bad but would probably stay somewhere else next time.

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.

Interesting hotel...

I was in San Antonio for the week prior to staying at the Riverwalk Plaza Hotel and stayed at the La Quinta, Convention Center. I had to move to a new hotel for the weekend and chose this place. I stayed in this hotel for 3 nights. Overall, the hotel was clean--better sheets than the La Quinta and big, fluffy, clean towels. We had an issue with our bathtub not draining properly, but that was quickly resolved. The only problem we had was the parking garage which only has one way up and one way down from the first and second floors. Parking spaces are too tight and are hard to come by when the hotel is full--as we experienced during our stay. We would come back at 10pm and there wasn't a parking spot to be had on either floor. We just were lucky with employees leaving at that time and could park in their vacant space.

Sightseeing tip: Short walk from hotel

Things look a lot farther apart from each other on the map of San Antonio, but all attractions are pretty much walking distance. I wouldn't drive at all knowing what I know now...however, the car came in handy to our day trip to see the other missions outside the city and the rodeo.

Good location and value

An old hotel that has been updated very well. It doesn't look good from the outside, but the rooms are great. It has a good location, a good free breakfast and convenient and resonable parking.

All u need, but don't expect too much

They say they're newly renovated, but I don't think it was complete. My room was an odd mish-mash of furniture from the 70s and some updated pieces. I think it was mostly the bathrooms that were re-done. Still, I like this place. But don't go in expecting the Ritz.

Nightlife tip: Short walk from hotel

You're not ON the Riverwalk, but you're just a short walk away. But make them draw you a map how to get there. I got fairly vague/confusing directions, and ended up walking the wrong way up the Riverwalk, away from most of the restaurants and people.

No complaints

The hotel is very reasonably priced and has all the basic accommodations, fitness room, restaurant and coffee shop in the lobby, one computer and printer in their business center, and best of all free internet in rooms. It's about 7 minute walk to the market center, 10 minute walk to the conference center, and about 7 minutes away from the river walk area. I liked the location because everything is close by although it is not in the "most happening" place of San Antonio. The rooms were clean, everything worked, and the staff was accommodating. If you are looking for a trendy upscale hotel, look elsewhere. Otherwise, for a comfortable, relaxing, and functional stay in San Antonio, this hotel is very good.

Dining tip: Short walk from hotel

For good mexican food suggestions, ask the local cabbies instead of going to places based on online reviews. Our cab driver recommended La Margarita and it was incredible. It's a 7 minute walk from the hotel.

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.

River walk

We came during Fiests and almost everything was private. Later it felt like downtown Cleveland. It's more of a canal then a river.

It was OK

Room was nice and comfortable, we enjoyed having an open balcony, and relaxed there in the mornings.Hotel was not far from Riverwalk, and was on a qiet section of the rover, with less foot traffic.
