Certificate of Excellence
Hilton Palacio del Rio in San Antonio, TX is perfectly located on the San Antonio River Walk. Directly across from the Henry B. Gonzalez Convention Center and only 2 blocks from the Alamo and Hemisfair Park. If the River Walk is your primary destination, we are the place to stay. Every room in our hip hacienda-style hotel has a private balcony overlooking the River Walk or downtown San Antonio skyline. We are walking distance to restaurants, bars and shops, with 25 meeting rooms and event spaces including The Pavilion by Hilton. In addition we have 3 on-site outlets for food and beverage: Tex’s Sports Bar (the only sports bar on the San Antonio River Walk), River’s Edge Cafe + Patio Bar and our famous Durty Nelly's Irish Pub. Our historic hotel was built using modular construction in a record 202 days. Opening April 6, 2018, in time for Hemisfair '68 Worlds Fair, we were the first luxury hotel in downtown San Antonio, welcoming guests from all over the world.

The hotel was nice. However I found the staff indifferent. The breakfast cost was outrageous. They have some of the most expensive margaritas. Parking was outrageous. And shower barely came to my chest.

The location is terrific - right on the RiverWalk & close to the Alamo. I was initially very upset with my room as I booked a River View & while technically facing the river it was the last room & view was a parking garage & street. I immediately called to change & no other

Nice hotel overall. No real complaints on room or staff. Its Very expensive for the experience and avoid the lobby bar. This place is in a perfect location, but you will pay for that. The lobby bar is awful.

Driving in can be confusing since there is no parking offered at the hotel. The driveway becomes overcrowded. Valet service accidentally took our car to a garage 15 minutes away while we were unloading and checking in. Very little guidance given for the car. Otherwise the rest
