“Conference stay at the Marriott Rivercentre”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 29, 2012

I stayed at this hotel for 6 nights in mid-August 2012 for a conference. I really liked the hotel location as it's right on the River Walk which consists of a winding canal (river) surrounded with shops, restaurants and bars along both sides of the canal. They offer River walk boat cruises down the canal. The weather was very hot in August. The hotel room was very good, very comfy bed and linens and the staff were great. I would not hesitate to stay there again or even refer family friends to stay at this hotel.

We had a really nice stay at this hotel. Had an early flight into San Antonio and were able to check into our room earlier than expected. In fact, we were offered our choice of a view room or one away from the elevator. Although we were located on a floor with 2 "party" suites, the rooms seem to be soundproofed to some degree and our white noise machine took care of the overflow noise.
Not sure when the last update occurred but our room seemed nicely done and clean. Vanity is outside of the bathroom which is around the corner from the sleeping area and worked very well in not disturbing the later sleeper. Room would seem small for 4 people and their luggage, but fine for 2 of us. Would be great to have a fridge and wifi in the room.
The employees at this hotel seemed to have had some really nice training. We were there for 5 nights and encountered many pleasant employees throughout the hotel. There always seemed to be a manager overseeing the lobby & greeting guests. Orlando, the concierge who helped us in multiple ways, went above and beyond to assist us. We really appreciated him.
The location is great with the mall within a few steps and everything was beautifully decorated for Christmas. We would not hesitate to stay here again.

Overall nice hotel. Great location. Very clean. However, rooms are small, no microwave/mini fridge etc. View is bad..overlooking I-10 highway. Right next to mall which is awesome. Will try a different place next time just to compare. Price wise it's very cost effective.

Room Tip: Corner room would be best...but they fill up quickly...

We had a pleasant stay in this hotel. We were in a suite on the top floor to have a panoramic view over the Alamo. Its location is unbeatable--Alamo, Rivercenter, River cruise and Tower of America. Also a walking distance to Main Plaza, San Fernando Cathedral, Majestic Theater.... There are very good restaurants in Rivercenter or inexpensive ones for a quick bite. If we visit San Antonio we will stay in this hotel again.

The location is the best. Walking distance of Rivercenter Mall, Restaurants and Bars. The staff is great, they were able to find us two rooms without reservation, having a huge convention was taking place, this is a nice gesture to notice. I would only complain about three things: No complimentary wifi (only lobby), indoor pool was cold and valet service a little expensive. But I will still go back. The views for the river with Xmas decoration are priceless!

Stayed here one night for business this past week and everything was top notch!

Everyone working there was extremely friendly. They game me an amazing corner room on the 28th floor overlooking the rivercenter. The room was large and bed was extremely comfortable.

The concierge lounge for elite members had a very nice happy hour from 5:30-7:30 and wide selection of breakfast items in the morning.

Parking was $25/day which I felt was extremely high however there is metered parking right on the street next to the hotel, which I used instead.

I would give this property 5 stars and would definitely stay here again the next time I'm in San Antonio.

Room Tip: If available, ask for an upper floor overlooking the rivercenter or riverwalk.

We stayed Thanksgiving weekend for Distinguished Youth of Texas. The location is fabulous. The room was spacious and comfortable. Only bad thing was laptop case was dropped at some point and damaged our computer. Marriott is working with is to resolve. I would highly Recommend this hotel to anyone.
