This hotel is in a good location, about 1/2 mile walk to the Alamo or to the Market Plaza. The rooms are nice enough and balcony views of the river are good from the lower floors. I expect upper floors are blocked quite a bit by the trees. We were on the 3rd floor so below most of the canopy... More

I am not sure why this hotel is only rated at 57% on here. It was very clean, quiet, and nicely decorated. The staff were excellent and it was right on the riverwalk so easy access to all downtown has to offer. The only minus is you had to pay for parking but that is fairly typical for a downtown... More

Our room was directly facing the Riverwalk. It was convenient to everything. The room was spacious, very clean, and modern. The staff was very friendly although no one was able to help with suggestions on restaurants or directions to anything we asked. The valet guys were so professional, polite and friendly. They even went to our car a few times... More

Great experience from Check In to Check Out. Valet were professional, Front Desk (Bonnie) super nice and helpful. Room was super clean. PERFECT Location, Wheelchair accessible to Riverwalk from the hotel. The Riverwalk restaurants are out the hotel back door, the Alamo is a block away. My mom was in a wheelchair, I could wheel her around with ease, from... More

So the Riverwalk Holiday Inn has a great central location for walking to the Alamo, is just a couple of short blocks from Riverwalk, and has a nice parking setup. The drawbacks are not under the control of management at all. Namely, when you have a Riverwalk facing room you have a great view of the surrounding rooftops! To see... More

The hotel was perfect for accessing the Riverwalk. You leave the hotel and in just a couple of minutes you are on the main stretch of the Riverwalk. We could walk everywhere- to restaurants, the Alamo and the Tower of the Americas (about 10-15 min). The rooms were clean and comfortable. The lobby was very bright and appeared to be... More

This Holiday Inn is most perfect because of Location. Safe and quiet on Riverwalk but close to everything that needed to be seen. Only negative was room not available until 2:30 p.m. which; after a long 3 1/2 long flight would have appreciated access to the room. Lovely room with large super comfortable beds overlooking the Riverwalk was an added... More

My husband and I stayed here for two nights during a short getaway from our home in Austin. We checked in late and were greeted by Raven, who was friendly and gave us a room upgrade with an excellent view. The property is in a perfect location; we were right on the Riverwalk and walked a short distance to the... More
