    Hotel is located close to the Riverwalk and easy access to San Antonio. Had a nice stay

  • Family with children

    Even though the Hotel was located at the end of the Riverwalk, I liked the fact that there was an entrance to the Riverwalk across the street from the hotel. I also liked the fact that it was quite and not that many people around.

    The parking is a little to tight if you have a big car or truck. Also I had trouble with my room access card. I along with some other guest had to use the staires from the 2nd floor garage up to the 5th floor. The garage elevators are inclosed and the only way to enter and get access to them is by using your room access card to open the glass door. One of the other guest advised that he had to use the stairs the night before. I hope that this was a one time incident and they have corrected the problem.

    It was a Great Location to the Main Attractions and the Riverwalk. A great location to tour the City.

    I did not like the Parking. It was horrible. My rental Car was hit by someone and I did not report it but I should have. The Parking is Horrible. I wish that they would do something differently with the Parking.

    The location was at a walking distance to the central adventures of the famous riverwalk. The Riverwalk hotel in itself was clean!

    What I found necessary was a hanger to hang a towel in the sink/wash area where one washes their hands or face.

    Everyone was very polite and helpful. I will definitely stay there again.

    Some of the other customers were very loud in the corridors at night but other than that it was very relaxing.

  • Older travelers
    9.6

    Everything was clean, staff was friendly, enjoyed the comfort of the room, very enjoyable stay.

  • Family with children
    8.8

    The Riverwalk Plaza did provide great service. Overall I enjoyed my stay, but the parking needs to be perfected in every way. Sometimes when in returning to the garage and of course being pre charged fo parking, it was sometimes difficult to find a space to park.

    Unfortunately the toilet in the bathroom was unleveled. The parking was a disgrace and in being residents of the hotel, why did I have to pay for parking. Nowhere in booking the room online did it mention that I would have to pay to park. It just asked if I would need parking for my vehicle.

  • Family with children
    7.4

    Close to riverwalk

    Did not like that the sink was in with the shower and toliet. Makes it harder for families to get ready if in same room.

  • Family with children
    5.8

    There was only 1 person to wait on us in the cafe for breakfast and he was over worked. There was no butter in the hotel cafe and no fresh coffee. The fruit cups had expired the day before.

    The location of the hotel (near to town centre).

  • Family with children
    5.0

    Very little. The bed was good. The room was large. However, they did not give us a poolside room as I had ordered on Booked.net. I had a deal with anothere website tht would have given me the four star Westin for less than the Booked.net price for this one. I would never stay there again. It is dark, dingy, and poorly arranged. Never more than one person at the front desk and she made you wait while she talked endlessly on the phone. pwh

    dark, dingy, poorly decorated. The staff was unhelpful. The noise from the room next door was horrific and you could hear every door open and close down the hall. Besides, they didn't give us the room I had reserved.
