I was in San Antonio at a convention and my secretary scheduled me to stay the week at the Riverwalk Vista. It was a great experience. Half a block from the Riverwalk and several blocks from the convention center. I couldn't ask for a better location.
Upon arrival, I was asked if I needed help with my bags and then directed to get in the elevator and come to the third floor. I was personally shown to my room (Room 304), was given my room key, yes I said room key, and explained where everything was in my room. The staff was also very helpful with restaurant information in the area.
I also enjoyed wine set out every afternoon at 5:00pm and having coffee available around the clock. The ambiance was very nice and quite on the inside. Great for reading a book or studying, as I was taking a class at the convention.
During the night, the noise outside was louder than other hotels I have stayed at but you have to realize that if you book a hotel on the Riverwalk for a Friday/Saturday night, you have to expect some noise. You are on the Riverwalk for crying out loud. I was in and out numerous times throughout the night and never worried about homeless people on the steps or anything.
The room was very clean, the bed was very comfortable, and the shower was awesome. The rain type shower head was great since I am so tall.
Overall, a great experience. I am already planning on bringing my wife back for a weekend get-away. Thank you for the great stay.
