Valet was twice the normal valet rates I usually see at hotels/restaurants. Also we waited 30-45 minute in line to have our car valet parked. Other than the valet problems, the hotel was amazing and the staff was extremely attentive. Even with the valet issues, it was one of the most pleasant hotels I have stayed in. The rooms are... More

My last visit to the Palacio Del Rio was ten+ years ago. When searching for a hotel close to the convention center, I was surprised to see this one at a very reasonable rate - $170. Check in was very quick (TH afternoon). The lobby is quite small, but the entire footprint of this hotel is small. You can beat... More

Good & bad.......the stay did NOT start off well having to wait over an hour to valet park. I had already paid $40 for it or would have gone to self park but I'm also handicapped & can't walk that far toting luggage, etc. Hotel staff was friendly upon check-in & apologetic due to the extreme delay in parking but...

The room was beautiful and comfortable. The Wifi is free but very slow and limited to 3 hour blocks (why?). Great location for a conference, plenty of space, right on the riverwalk and reasonably priced. My main complaint is I ate at the hotel restaurant and the only gluten free option was spaghetti. Not a big deal, but you'd think... More

We were celebrating our 30th Anniversary, and we could only stay one day this time, we had a funeral also to attend. But the room service was super above all. Our room service was taken care by a lady named Pilar Montes. She made our anniversary mean special with her gift of chocolate covered strawberries, wine, and a card congratulating... More

Good food and even better service! Thanks Sheila for making our time there special. You are the best! They tuned in to our football team's game and Sheila took care of us "par excellence". It made our time in San Antonio very special. I can't wait to go back!

I stayed at this hotel 25 years ago and again about 10 years ago. I felt back then that it was getting old and not as pretty a property as some of the other river walk hotels. I just stayed there this weekend and found the hotel did a complete top to bottom update. Awesome! The rooms are beautiful with... More

My husband and I stayed their a few weeks back. We enjoyed the stay, The staff is so wonderful and very welcoming. The Front desk ladies are very helpful with everything including showing us how to use the key pad for the elevator. We are up in our age and know electronics are difficult at times. The best part of... More

My wife & I had an interesting weekend & week planned that required changes in progress. The Hilton made it happen. Nikka at the front desk got us in the room we wanted. Adriana our housekeeper really took good care of us with a short window to work with during normal hours. The staff in the River's Edge Cafe &... More
