“A beautiful hotel right on the River Walk in San Antonio!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 9, 2013

A beautiful hotel in downtown San Antonio with great rooms and restaurants. Close to the Alamo and the Tower. The balcony was very nice. The River Walk is right out the back of the hotel. Very clean and accomodating!

Room Tip: A room with a balcony overlooking the river is perfect!

The San Antonio Hilton has the best location on the River Walk. The hotel is spotless, recently rennovated and the staff are all extremely friendly. The Hilton has been completely refurbished in a very tasteful way. The bed are extremely comfortable as well. I highly recommend this Hilton - it is one of the best we have every stayed at.

Travel for me is a nightmare. My diet has to be gluten free, no eggs, dairy, sugar,or soy. The three chefs at The River's Edge Restaurant ( David, James, Nick) were fantastic. And Priscilla was instrumental in getting me directly to Chef David prior to our arrival at the hotel. My husband and I were there over the Easter weekend celebrating our 30th wedding anniversary. They never made me feel awkward with having to place special orders for each meal. We wanted to go to Europe for this special anniversary, but with my food restrictions decided it was better not to, as I have to eat 5-6 times per day. All of the staff from the front desk to room service were very helpful and it was so nice to sit outside for our meals. We want to thank all of them for their great service. Joyce & Ed Room 1020

We recently stayed at the Hilton Palacio del Rio for my husband's birthday. Had an excellent room on the 20th floor. We had a balcony that overlooked the Riverwalk. It was great seeing all the sights and the lights at night. Room was very nice and we enjoyed it a great deal. Service was excellent at the hotel. I had ordered a special birthday package for my husband and it arrived right on time. We will definitely stay again! Great location for anything you want to do along the Riverwalk.

Stayed a week in the FIRST of the hotels in the Riverwalk area. Magnificently redone; courteous check-in and the bellmen were absolutely gracious, helpful and courteous.
The rooms are done with taste and the river side rooms with balconies offer a beautiful sweeping landscape view of the Riverwalk.
The computerized elevators are cool, convenient and easy to use although quite a change from traditional 'lifts."
The restaurants are good, Sports Bar is right on the walk and Durty Nellies is a hoot! More about Durty's in another review.
East walk to almost everyplace including the Alamo, shopping, restaurants and parks.

Room Tip: Although more expensive, the rooms on the Riverwalk side are exquisite.

Have stayed here a couple times now. It is definitely a nice hotel, probably one of the nicest on the riverwalk, but you're paying for it. The balconies are great, especially facing the river. Access to the river is fantastic. The restaurant, just like every other Hilton, is ridiculously overpriced, especially breakfast. And the parking charges are horrible too, but that's the norm for the area. Overall, nice place, but be prepared to pay the price.

I was very impressed with the renovated rooms. Very comfortable and high tech. We enjoyed the free HHonors breakfast which was also very good, in another very modern renovated space.

The location is great. A ten minute walk to the Alamo and the River City Mall.

The downside is the parking, $27 to self park a block away or pay some obscene amount to valet.
