“Shoot and stay”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 12, 2013

My husband and I stayed at Hotel Valencia Riverwalk for our anniversary. We purchased the shoot and stay package. The hotel was beautiful. We did have a few hiccups with our stay, but Robert Leyva, Hotel Manager, did everything possible to help correct the issue. Wonderful customer survive. The staff at the San Antonio Gun Club was amazing. I would recommend the shoot and stay package if you are looking for something different to do on your vacation! We will be returning to this hotel.

Hotel Valencia is conveniently located just off the major "loop" of the Riverwalk. The contemporary interior is heavily influenced by Mediterranean elements of dark woods, arches, terra cotta, and concrete. Our room was quiet and overlooked the river, with dark wooden shutters on the windows and very comfortable beds. All staff members treated us as though we were in a spa, as though our personal comfort was their only concern. I enjoyed sitting on the patio overlooking the water, and there is also an interior courtyard accessible from the third floor with a beautiful fountain.

Room Tip: Rooms on the third floor have access to the interior courtyard, and there are rooms on the upper flo...

My husband and I stayed three nights, just to get away. We are from San Antonio, but the Valencia made us feel that we were on a true vacation. The decor and the staff were great. Our view was awesome. I did not like the fact that the spa was located outside of the hotel.

The Valencia is a wonderful hotel. The beds are SO comfortable, the hotel is quiet and the staff are amazing. If you can, book a courtyard room on the 3rd floor. We really enjoyed sitting there in the morning with a cup of coffee. Breakfast at Citrus is a must - the breakfast quesadillas being my suggestion. The bar also makes a wonderful bloody mary for those who enjoy a little too much nightlife. The hotel is very centrally located so we were able to walk easily to places like Howl at the Moon and the Historic Market Center.

Room Tip: 3rd floor courtyard rooms are a must!

My wife & I live in Austin & travel to San Antonio for weekend getaways 3-4 times a year. We always stal at La Valencia. We like the contemporary furnishings & decor. It's low lighting, candles & fire pit patio set the mood we're looking for. Staff have always been attentive & proactive. Highly recommend

I stayed here March 23-26 in 2012 and let me say that this is a very nice hotel. The location is perfect right in the middle of everything and within a 5 minute walking distance from my favorite steakhouse there (Bohanon's). The atmosphere of the place is dark but it didn't bother me. The service is first class and if you need a microwave and refrigerator in the room then you can call them beforehand and when you check in it will be ready to go in the room. As for the room itself I don't have any complaints other than I don't think it was worth the price I paid. The price of the room for me was more about location so I couldn't complain in that sense. The rooms are little old and has some serious miles and it's not as pristine and perfect like I would have hoped or expected. But nonetheless it is NOT bad room either. The restaurants at the hotel were average at best as the food was mediocre and it was overpriced. All in all I would recommend this place as you're in a great location and there aren't any issues with the hotel itself.

Room Tip: The location of this hotel is excellent and in the middle of all the action.
