My husband and I loved staying at the Riverwalk Vista. The location could not have been better for easy access to the Riverwalk, Alamo and other "touristy" type things in the area. Even my husband who does't really care where we stay when travelling kept commenting on what a "cool" building we were staying in and how he would love to come back ans stay at the Riverwalk. Our room was so charming with the huge windows, exposed brick and beautiful hardword floors. Breakfast was great (loved the cranbeerry white chocolate scones!), there were treats in the afternoon as well as water, coffee, ect. When we checked in the innkeeper Katherine gave us some restaurant suggestions that were turned out great as well. I do wish we would have got more suggestions from her on other restaurants or things to do in the evening, but maybe next time! As for the street noise it did not bother us a bit....what little bit I did notice. I usually bring ear plugs when traveling anyways b/c my husbands snoring is way worse than anykind of noise outside. I also loved the old music in the common areas.
