“Nice hotel - Very Crowded”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 9, 2013 via mobile

Nice example of the Embassy Suites formula. Beautiful lobby, great extras of the cook to order breakfast and evening reception. Location is along a less crowded section of the Riverwalk. Room was above average, bed was very comfortable.

It was a holiday weekend, so the hotel was packed and there a lot of kids. The value was not lost on this crowd. I would think about staying at a smaller and/or less popular property over any future holiday weekend trips to San Antonio.

Stayed July 2013, traveled with family

My husband and I spent a wonderful 3 night 4 day stay for our 25th anniversary. We had a great time, everyone was helpful and courtesy. We were on the top floor and had a great view for the sun-setting every day. We used the valet and were able to call down and have our vehicle ready for us by the time we got there. The only thing I would suggest is that the pool towels get serviced more often so everyone could have one, there were 2 occasions when I went to the pool and there were no towels to be found. Craig that served the drinks at the managers reception was fantastic. Thank you for the great time and we would definitely go back.

This place is lovely. The rooms are nice & clean & comfortable. It's even better the higher up you are, where the view is better.
If you go swim, try to get out there early, if you want some sun. The way the building is designed makes it difficult to get afternoon sun.
The lobby area is huge, very comfortable & inviting.
Happy hour alone can make this hotel worth the price--free drinks & food & and plenty of opportunity to mingle with other visitors.
Next door is Luke's, a John Besh restaurant. I HIGHLY recommend it, especially if you are a New Orleans-phile or have any type of roots in Louisiana, France, Germany, or Italy.
The hotel is RiverWalk accessible and has many great views outside, as well.
It's not right in the middle of the RiverWalk party spots, but it's not too far of a walk. Just ask for directions from other people who walk past. San Antonio is a very friendly city.

Room Tip: Ask for a top floor, so you can get a good view :)

Second time at this Embassy Suites. Beautiful hotel. Located on the Riverwalk with easy access. The hotel restaurant, Luke's, was outstanding. Decided to eat there for my anniversary. Pool on the third floor has a spectacular view.

Hotel was very nice, comfortable, and clean. Breakfast and evening social were nice added benefits. Front desk employees not very helpful and had to wait in line a long time to talk to them. Access to the Riverwalk was perfect - good location.

We have three children (2,4 and 9). The suites had plenty of room for the whole family to relax after busy days on the river walk. The cooked to order breakfast was awesome and the kids liked all the other choices. We will definitely look to stay at other Embassy Suites in the future.
