Admittedly, Holiday Inn is not my "go to" hotel. In fact, I normally avoid the "Inns" altogether, unless I am on a team trip where the team is required to stay together at a specific location (for a "stay and play" tournament). This was the scenario for my recent visit to the Holiday Inn Riverwalk. It was the designated hotel... More

Dinner in restaurant was average. Several of our steaks were way over cooked and some sent back. Friday eve in bar,only one bartender to do it all. He was overwhelmed but finally got some help when bar was overflowing with patrons. Outdoor area leading to Riverwalk, also smoking area, very dirty. Hotel rooms were very nice however.

We chose this hotel for location, and it was perfect. Back hotel entrance is going directly to River Walk. And everything else is also walking distance. The staff was very nice and helpfull. Room was clean. We will probably stay in this hotel again when we go to San Antonio in the future.

Very nice hotel, good location on the Riverwalk. Maybe because it was during the Christmas Holidays, the staff was not very outgoing or helpful. I have an outstanding "security hold" on my credit card since 12/28/14, called the hotel on 01/02/15, and as of today 01/09/15, still there. I paid my complete bill on 12/30/14. I had to call my...

We celebrated our 44th wedding anniversary by staying the evening in San Antonio on the Riverwalk at the Holiday Inn Riverwalk on North St Mary's St. What a magical view from our room of the San Antonio River. Christmas lights were still draped across the trees, floating night time reflections along the winding Riverwalk. It was beautiful! Our room was... More

We stayed for one night just before Christmas and had a room with a balcony overlooking the Riverwalk. The weather was decent enough to enjoy the balcony in the afternoon. The room was really, really nicely put together. Loved the floor. The bed was comfy too. The hotel has onsite parking which was pricey, but convenient. The valets were very... More

My husband and I booked for a romantic getaway after Christmas and I am so glad that we chose this hotel. This hotel has been totally renovated and is simply beautiful. This hotel is directly on the River walk, which is great for the River Walk action. The room was a nice size, wood floors, bed was comfortable (just a... More

We stayed at the Holiday Inn San Antonio Riverwalk for two nights just before Christmas. The Riverwalk is beautiful at this time of year - the city works so hard on the lights. Check-in was easy and efficient. However, we caught it just right. We passed through the Lobby 15 minutes later and there was a queue five deep! The... More
