“Not actually on the River Walk you want to be at”
Reviewed July 13, 2013

While this hotel is technically on the river, it isn't on the river walk were the restaurants, shops, etc. are, so beware if you want to be in the thick of things. You actually have to walk across a streets to get to that area. I've been to a ton of Homewood Suites and this is not one of my favorites for many reasons.

Thank you for taking the time to review our property. We appreciate all of the feedback we get from our guests. Regarding our location on the river walk, we may not be where all of the shops and restaurants are located but we are on the more quiet part of the river walk. Many of our guests prefer to go to the bars and restaurants and then return to the peace and quiet of their suite here at the Homewood Suites. Thank you for choosing Homewood Suites.

I'm a Hampton Inn guy so I'd never stayed in a Homewood Suites property. Slight more expensive than Hamptons but the additional room (Suites) and the truly amazing breakfast buffet made it worth the additional price.

This property is right along the RiverWalk and within easy walking distance of the eat & drink attractions there as well as to the Alamo which is only about three blocks away.

This is not a Westin nor a Hilton, i.e. there is no bar and no restaurant per se. But it delivered on everything I expected and if you add in the attentive & friendly staff I'd say you have a winner here.

Thank you for taking the time to review the experience you had while staying with us recently. We appreciate the fact that you gave us a shot considering you normally stay with the Hampton brand.

Stayed one week at Homewood Suites by Hilton San Antonio - Riverwalk while attending to aconference at San Antonios Henry B. Conzalez Convention Center.

The hotel was a good experience - shared a two-bedroom suite with my colleague. Both rooms were big enough with good separate bathrooms, working air-conditioning for both and the shared livingroom/kitchen area made possible to sit down after long conference-days and just have a margarita or two :-)

Hotel is situated by the riwerwalk and I encourage everyone to take a long walk in the morning both up and downstream to enjoy the views. Riverwalk itself is arounf 4 miles long?

Downtown area is easily accessed by foot - it takes just ten minutes to walk to the convention center or Macys. Buses are also going just by the hotel to different directions.

Berakfast is very OK and it's "free" as it's allways at Homewood Suites. At weekdays you will also get free "evening reception" - the quality is not so great but it's an easy way to grab something and have few drinks. The speciality is here frozen Margarita.

Hotel itself is quite well maintained, staff is friendly and rooms are clean. Free wireless internet works fine, small business lounge worked for us well and there were three coin-operated cheap washing-machines and dryers the helped us well to survive from the bowl of humidity...

The only bigger negative thing is the size of the rroftop pool that is very small :-(

Thank you for the review of your recent stay with us. I am glad that the two-bedroom suite you occupied worked out well for your needs. As you noted, our pool is small. It is on the roof of the hotel and the view is great but the pool itself is not large. It is well suited for cooling off after a long hot day. Thank you for choosing Homewood Suites. We appreciate your business.

Friendly staff. I had a nice view of the river while I ate. Very convenient location. I enjoyed the peace provided by the hotel. I appreciate the fact that the doors were only accessible to guests at night.

This was by far one of the best stays we have had. The hotel is great and the service was great. Great location on the Riverwalk and the Breakfast and Dinner Reception was very nice . We would definitely recommend this hotel to anyone who is visiting the Riverwalk or San Antonio.

We stayed 1 night and had a great time. The location was great and close to almost everything on the Riverwalk area. The pool may be small, but your not really there to hang in the pool, are you?
I must say there was a smell in our bathroom, but they explained it was the ring below the toilet & gave us credit for having to deal with it. Bravo on your customer service!! We would stay again...

We stayed at this Homewood Suites Hotel on the way to our South Texas home after staying at very bad accommodations in Santa Fe. This Homewood has slightly larger suites than others we have stayed at. The staff is great and the hotel is quite clean. It is located near the end of the Riverwalk’s tourist area, but the walk to the busier area only takes a few minutes. We stayed there on a Friday & Saturday night, so we did not get their evening meal. I have seen breakfast spreads on cruise ships that weren’t as nice as theirs. Everything I tried was good. We will definitely consider this hotel on our next San Antonio visit.

Room Tip: Try for a suite facing the river if this is important to you.
