“Hotwire came through Big Time”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 1, 2014 via mobile

Made hotel reservations at last minute so I did a look at Hotwire and found a four star under a hundred, booked it and discovered it was the Omni La Mansion del Rio. Service and room was all I expected, if you are only staying the night and not needing your car, park across the street in the City Owned Garage and save $26.00 over Valet. There is easy access to the River Walk and all the restaurants and bars, shopping is near by at the River Center Mall. My favorite San Antonio restaurants are not on the River but more remote locations.
Can't beat the Omni La Mansion del Rio at he Hotwire rate

3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 1, 2014

We booked this hotel as a last minute Labor Day getaway. The hotel is okay. When you pull into the hotel there is no grand entrance, just a parking garage, where the valets take your car. The lobby is also kind of plain, and small.

If you're not on the riverwalk side, prepare for a maze to get to your room. When we were there, the corridors of the hotel were not air conditioned, so we were sweating by the time we got to our room.

The rooms themselves are decent. Location makes a big difference as our back doors opened into another exterior corridor. We later found out that this could have been used as a shortcut to get into our room, except that the back doors have no key card access!

Another weird thing: when you call the front desk, the hotel across the river answers! The Mokara Spa Hotel which partners with Omni answers the phone, which would be fine except that it is confusing and you can't make any requests for your own room without being transferred to someone else!

The Mokara is also where the fitness center is located. Not terribly convenient, but very nice. The Ostra restaurant on the river attached to the Mokara has an excellent breakfast buffet.

Finally, check was unnecessarily difficult if you try to pay a portion of your bill in cash. The hotel closes your account immediately with your card on file on the last day, so they have to do a refund for any portion paid in cash. Why not just wait until the end of business to charge the card like other hotels?

Overall, this was just an okay experience, but I expected more out of a premium hotel.

Service at this hotel was the BEST! And, I mean EVERYone. From the Valet, Front Desk, Staff, Concierge, Restaurants, etc - far above most hotels. The balconies on the River Walk were great - especially at night. The bed was the BEST - maybe the best bed I have ever slept in. But, I can't say enough about the nice and efficient SERVICE. The best hotel on the River Walk!!

My husband and I had a pleasant stay at the Omni right on the Riverwalk. There are so many places to eat nearby that we never ate here. Our room was very comfortable and quiet. There is easy access to the Riverwalk and the concierge was helpful in finding out of the way places to eat. It can get VERY hot in San Antonio in August; it was up to 109 while we were there. Try Spring, Fall and Winter!

I was looking for a clean and nice hotel as I was traveling for work and a weekend away. This hotel had excellent staff and have extreme easy access to the river so your not having to drive around San Antonio, this is the place to go. I enjoyed the convenience and location. I will return to stay at this location.

Our stay was wonderful. Step out directly on the riverwalk. Nice pool area, very classy and friendly staff. I had no reservation and had checked out the best rate in the AAA app. The rate the receptionist gave me was considerably higher than the rate in the app, but they gave me the lower rate without any fuss. The only negative is that they charge for wifi, $10 a day is a scam.

Loved this place! It's clean, modern, has a great Texas/Mexico blended style, and it's located directly on San Antonio's Riverwalk! I would definitely stay here again, the next time that I'm in San Antonio!
