“My new favorite Riverwalk hotel!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 23, 2013

I love this hotel, it's easy to find and it's right on my favorite part of the Riverwalk. Easy walk to the Alamo, close to plenty of pubs and restaurants and the elevator goes right down to the Riverwalk. The food at breakfast and happy hour is great and filling if you don't want to go out to a restaurant and they have a popcorn machine and sodas most of the day, the Bloody Mary's were good as well. The suites are spacious, especially the balconies, huge...we had 6 people on the balcony with plenty of room for more. The suites overlooking the Riverwalk are great and the views are fantastic. Make sure you don't get a suite on the alley side. Also, if you intend on using the small fridge bring some pliers or call maintenance because they keep the fridge warm and take off the knob so you cannot adjust the temp. We almost ruined some food before realizing that the fridge was not cold enough and called maintenance. Amanda at check-in is a sweetheart and very helpful. Make your reservations in advance and keep checking the prices because they may go down and then call the hotel and switch to the cheaper rate. I highly recommend the Drury Inn and Suites Riverwalk, especially at Christmas!

Room Tip: Stay away from the alley side, the hotel is at the junction of the Riverwalk loop so some river view...

This hotel is on the National Historic Register and has a wonderful history and architecture. We had a suite to accommodate our larger than average family. The balcony overlooked the Riverwalk. We loved the generous hot breakfast every morning. We were pleasantly surprised to discover that they serve popcorn and pop every afternoon and have a hot assortment of food on a buffet early each evening. The rooftop pool was very pleasant and clean. We had the whole area to ourselves one entire afternoon. Also, the staff was extremely friendly and helpful.

This hotel saved our trip to San Antonio. A weekend of rain dampened our plans - literally and figurative.y. We splurged for a room with a balcony and couldn't have been happier. The living room had a food area with a microwave, sink, and refrigerator in a cabinet which could be hidden away,as well as a small table. There was a huge tv in both the bedroom and the living room, and the rooms were insulated enough you couldn't hear one in the other room. It was great. The cocktail hour and breakfast were the only downsides for us -- overrun by families with kids. This was the weekend. re, if you are traveling with kids, probably couldn't be better. We weren't, so chose to go out the nights of the weekend we were there. Service was cheerful and efficient. Housekeeping was slow - but very good. Took down a star because of the kids (and if you are traveling with kids -- this would probably be a plus) and housekeeping not getting to our rooms til after 3.

Room Tip: Obtaining a room with a terrace and view of the cathedral is worth the extra.

The good news is that hopefully we will be able to have you back for all of the outdoor activities!

Stayed in December 2012 for a "Girl's Night Out" on the San Antonio Riverwalk. Our room was perfect for 4 and had a second room with a couch and television to hang out in. The free appetizers and drinks in the evening were not great but hey they were free! You are limited to three cocktails per person. Very close to all the nightlife!! Had a great time and will be back this month for my daughter's birthday with 6 teenage girls!!

This was our first experience with the Drury hotel chain and a good experience at that. Clean rooms, plenty of extras and a very accommodating staff. Free extras include a hot breakfast daily (get there early in the morning if you want a seat), WiFi, Kickback snacks at 5:30 (could be a meal if you like macaroni and cheese , chicken wings and hot dogs), and three alcoholic beverages from 5:30 to 7:00. What made this location great was that it was right on the Riverwalk. We could walk out the bottom door of the hotel and not have to cross any streets. I would recommend paying the extra $10 a night for a room with balcony overlooking the Riverwalk.

We brought my 91 year old Grandmother to this hotel. There were 4 of us girls so we wanted two rooms with a door between and a balcony view. I called ahead and asked if they had adjoining rooms and they said yes. I went online and booked two adjoining rooms with a balcony view. When we arrived we were told by the manager that the rooms were not called adjoining but connected. She said "we'll, you are not familiar with the hotel industry and probably don't know that is called a connected room." I am aware what they are called....look it up in the dictionary. She said that adjoining rooms could mean across the hall from each other. NOT! I was not happy when she said there were NO connecting rooms available. We had to be next to each other. Ok, fine. We get upstairs and there is a door in my room going to another room not belonging to my Grandmother and I never heard anyone in that room. Aside from that experience, it was a nice hotel, clean, on the river walk, they have a nice breakfast included and enough food in the evening that we didn't even have to go to dinner. The beds were VERY comfortable and the rooms very quiet. I would stay again but know now that I have to be very specific with the definition of adjoining because it doesn't mean the same thing to everyone.

Clean. Friendly staff. Clean. Free Wifi. Comfortable beds. Clean. Easy access to and from the riverwalk. Secure. Great breakfast buffet with many choices. Each evening at 5:30pm they have a free "Kick Back" buffet and up to three alcoholic drinks per adult. Yeah! Parking garage on site. Texas Land and Cattle Restaurant & Bar downstairs at the riverwalk level. We had a really good view of downtown from our window (6th floor). On the top floor, they have a heated (in winter) pool with a jaccuzi seating area that you can swim into on one end. We will be staying here the next time we return to San Antonio, as the Drury is an excellent value at a perfect location!

Room Tip: Parking garage ends at the fourth floor.
