“Great experience for a girlfriend reunion.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 17, 2013

This review is overdue, but last fall four women (65+ in age) had a wonderful reunion experience at the Riverwalk Homewood Suites. The staff was super courteous and provided maps and directions to various places we wanted to visit. The location is perfect, and we were able to walk or use public transportation to all the sites on our itinerary. The breakfast and evening receptions were exceptional, and the two-bedroom, two-bath suite enabled us to rest comfortably and visit leisurely in a home-like atmosphere after a day of site-seeing. And, the price was very affordable for folks on retirement income. We'll be back and are hoping to find other Homewood Suites for future annual reunions.

We had an excellent one-night stay here on a cross-country drive. We wanted to experience the location and didn't need the luxury of some of the other hotels. Since this was our fourth night on the road and we had had a long day, the Homewood was a perfect choice. After a visit to the Alamo, we walked "home" for the light dinner offering - tortellini and chicken casserole, peas and mushrooms, salad, and beverages (wine and beer for us).
Our suite was large and very clean. The separate living room area with kitchenette made it possible for us to spread out and reorganize for the rest of the trip. I especially appreciated the small, full refrigerator and the 2 TV's. The bed was comfortable and the water good and hot.
Everyone was extremely friendly and accommodating. At check-out, even the General Manager was there to help.
Some might have an issue with the valet parking fee of $23, but we were happy to have the car taken from us and tucked away for the night. It is a busy city and space for cars at hotels is an issue.

My stay has been a mix of business and pleasure. The hotel is in walking distance and is centrally located to all of the popular restaurants, shopping, etc. my room was spacious and very clean. All employees are very nice and courteous. There is a free breakfast with a variety of warm and cold items and there is a free happy hour with a light meal and wine/beer/margaritas!

I definitely plan on staying here in the future and would recommend this hotel to friends and family.

Nice place, very clean and friendly. It is an older property so some may appreciate the charm. Very good breakfast, so-so dinners provided Mon-Thur. Parking is expensive. the in room internet always worked, but did need resetting for access several times a day ... not really an issue. Relative to other properties it is cheaper, being right on and overlooking the river walk. Its nice to sit and have breakfast and view the rover from the overlook.

Room Tip: ask for a room overlooking the river, maybe on a lower floor.

Thank you for your review of your recent stay with us. Regarding the price for our valet parking and just so others will know, we are actually one of the lowest priced on the river walk. There are also several garages and parking lots around the hotel where you can park but please be aware that you will have to pay each time you come and go. We charge a flat daily rate and you can come and go as you please. Thank you for choosing Homewood Suites. We truly appreciate your business!

Like all other Homewood Suites, this one was great. Room was nice, big, clean and comfy. Service was great overall. Breakfast was just OK, nothing amazing, the evening beer/wine and food was very nice and unlike many other Homewood, this one has LOTS of great seating overlooking Riverwalk. Parking was pretty expensive at the Hotel, but I would stay again and highly recommend it, the location is perfect! Thought we would get a room overlooking Riverwalk since we I was a Hilton Gold Member, but got a roof view instead!

I recently traveled to San Antonio for a wedding. I knew going into this reservation that I was not looking for a luxury accommodation. I only stayed for a short weekend, and loved the idea of having a mini-apartment. I wanted a space large enough where family and friends could comfortably gather and socialize between events. So it was great to have a mini kitchen to keep snacks and beverages, and a sitting area for everyone to relax. The room/mini-apartment was simple but comfortable, clean, and nicely suited the reason for my stay.

This budget friendly hotel has excellent service, clean environment and outstanding location right by the Riverwalk. Here are some details on the hotel that is not obvious on their website. It has ten floors and each level has 18 suites. Rooms are numbered from x01 to x18 (where x is the level). Rooms x00, x01, x02, x16, x17 and x18 have windows facing the river. Rooms x07 to x12 face Market St and rooms x02 to x07 face St Marys. The daily complimentary breakfast is pretty standard but the complimentary dinner from Monday to Thursday is truly unique. The gym is located at the basement level and has 2 treadmills, stationary bike and weights. The small outdoor pool is located on the roof. From the rooftop, there is a great view of downtown San Antonio including the Tower of Americas. A couple of small minus points: (a) lack of self-parking - this is common for most hotels in this area (there is multi-story parking right across the street that charges $15 per 24 hours but, of course, you park there at your own risk), (b) noise from buses for rooms on St Mary side and (c) the rooms on the Riverwalk side have nice view but on weekends, it gets a little noisy with background music & occasional on commentaries on loud speakers from passing riverboats. The level is noise is not bad if you're used to city living.
 
The hotel staffs are excellent. They are very friendly and helpful. I would have rated them outstanding if not for one of the front desk staff who told me that she would call me when the room was ready but she forgot. Overall, I had an excellent experience staying here and would highly recommend this hotel.
