I stayed here 3 nights with a friend. We chose this hotel based upon location on the Riverwalk and couldn't have asked for a better place! It has direct access to the Riverwalk, a quick walk to bars and restaurants. The staff were friendly and helpful. The rooms were small, but well appointed. Comfortable beds and linens with a great...

The staff was helpful and friendly when we asked for breakfast recommendations the next morning. I accidentally left my coat and didn't realize it until after I arrived home. I called and they connected me with security, who deals... More

Hotel is very nice and modern. Modern fixtures and design. Professional courteous staff from the valet station to front desk. The rooms are nice and adequate but a little small for families of 4. If I had to complain about anything it would be the shower water temperature not being as hot as I prefer. It was warm but not... More

We've stayed at Palacio Del Rio for years. They've recently renovated. The elevators are cool and quick. The staff is always pleasant and helpful. The rooms are comfy. I did not like that we can no longer park our truck in the parking garage. We had to take it a view blocks away and park in an open lot. They... More

Perfect location for walking to good restaurants and events. I also would like to comment that we left a very nice bracelet behind in the room. Housekeeping... More

Our bellman Walter was VERY VERY helpful. The staff who checked us in were very helpful. The rooms were clean and quiet. We had a very enjoyable stay. The location on the Riverwalk is very convenient.

The hotel is in a perfect location right on the river. The rooms were nice and spacious although the beds were small to share with another person (we had 2 adults and 2 kids). The staff was great - helpful and friendly.

I highly recommend Hilton Palacio del Rio for your San Antonio stay. I would like to specially thank Ray Guillen the security supervisor for his support in shipping me the Ipad I left in the room. He was extremely courteous and friendly. Kudos for Ray.
