Service is great. Coffee and croissant was... More

We stayed at the Mokara this past weekend for my birthday and had a fantastic stay! The hotel was beautiful and peaceful. The lobby smells amazing! We stayed in Room 785 on the 7th floor and loved how quiet the room was. After a long day of walking and dealing with crowds, it was wonderful coming back to a room... More

We were greeted very amicably, offered cool towels to combat the heat, and upgraded to a riverfront room with balcony. The hotel was a bit pricier than others but well worth it. The traditional decor is lovely, and our room was spacious, comfortable, and clean. The bathroom was huge, and there was plenty of hot water and great water pressure.... More

First we travel frequently and stay in many hotels every year. I have stayed in at least 10 different hotels on the River Walk over the years. We have favorites that we love to stay in, but since the Mokara was rated #1 on trip advisor I decided to stay there. I called the hotel and told her we were... More

Love the décor, cleanliness, all staff services, in-room dining, Ostra (restaurant,) extensive number of movie selections for rent, comfortable beds, location on the Riverwalk, views....have I missed anything? I am a repeat customer for all the reasons above. Check your memberships, too; they have discounts for several organizations making a top hotel more affordable. FYI - have stayed at Mokara... More

One of the best hotels my husband and I ever stayed at! Loved every minute of it! We were just going to spend one night and decided that we enjoyed it so much and therefore we had to stay an additional evening! The Staff were so friendly and everybody was a delight! Definitely a must for couples that are celebrating... More

We stayed 3 nights and was well cared for. An excellent hotel, great spa and attentive service. The pool atop the hotel was quiet and serene. This hotel does things right. The food in Ostra was marginal but all else was exceptional.

I recommend a stay here if you are looking for a high quality hotel with great service. The valet service is fast and treated my car like it was there own. They even offered a few bottles of water as we departed the location. Front desk clerk was a great customer service agent. A "Must Stay" location. 5 stars, no... More

What a wonderful place to stay! The staff were all very accommodating, the food was great, the spa was relaxing, the roof top pool area was awesome and the room was clean and inviting. I had such a relaxing time and felt pampered the entire time. I certainly wasn't ready to leave.
