San Antonio Hotels on Riverwalk

First time visit and want to stay in a hotel on Riverwalk with a good view and within walking distance or short cab ride of other attractions. Any hotel suggestions from those who have been there and had positive experience? Thanks!

In Texas Forums, go over to far left and click on the words San Antonio.

That will show you a list of all the 2013 and 2012 San Antonio posts and the great responses that were given about hotels and sightseeing on the beautiful downtown San Antonio Riverwalk.

This way you can get a lot more info and still standby to receive any current answers to the post you made today.

First time? You are in for a lot of fun and beautiful scenery. Go over to YouTube and check out all the awesome videos of Riverwalk Boat Tours, Downtown, Mi Tierra, El Mercado market, Alamo etc.

My favorite hotel is the Embassy Suites on the Riverwalk.

I use Google maps and zoom in all the way to the first level above street view. Then just move around to get an idea of what's where. Downtown/Riverwalk is pretty compact - most things are within a 15 by 10 block area.

My vote is for Omni La Mansion or Embassy Suites. Also love the historic quality of the Menger but it is not actually on the Riverwalk (Alamo is literally across the street). Some people don't care for the Menger because it is quirky and some rooms are quite small.

Be sure to head over to El Mercado as well as the King William District for better dining than on the river itself.

The Menger Hotel is an attraction itself.
