What a wonderful hidden gem! I had my doubts because of some of the reviews but now I think the negative reviews are from folks who just always find things wrong with everything. Riverside Suites is great! The staff bends over backwards to help you with anything. You can not beat the location. Parking is half a short block away. Around the corner is the NIX Hospital. You can eat in their cafeteria for next to nothing. The rooms at Riverside are nice and I was told they are about to do some remodeling. If you want room service and valet parking stay somewhere else and pay $300.00 per night. For the rest of us Riverside Suites is perfect!!!!

Get away weekend to the 175th Anniversary of The Alamo. Wyndham Riverside Suites is conveniently located on The Riverwalk, near The Alamo and near lots of restaurants. The building has historic value and as such, must conform to strict building codes in the historic district. The entrance on the alley near the trash dumpsters does make a negative impression and I had to hold my breath entering the street level door. That negative impression was quickly erased by the warm and enthusiastic welcome we received from Wyndham staffer "Sandy". Very friendly and informative. Most outstanding and knowledgeable was David the Concierge. David was extremely helpful and friendly; probably one of the best employees of Wyndham we have met throughout our travels staying at Wyndham properties across the country in 11 years. Our one-bedroom unit's design was clever, the designer made the best of awkward space, and again, they had to work with historic district design constraints. Conveniently located at The Riverwalk, a plethora of restaurants were just steps away. San Antonio is one of the friendliest cities we have visited and the employees at Wyndham's Riverside Suites represented San Antonio well. Bravo!

Excellent location, we were given a unit with lots of space and an excellent view of the Riverwalk outside our window. The “stone” floors were unusual but added character to the unit. Close to the Alamo and most other major sites. Small entrance and lobby, but we had no problems locating it. Parking is less than 100 yards down the street and only $12.00 a day through Wyndham. We got a 1 bedroom, corner suite – lots of room for two. No cooker in this unit, just a two burner stove and microwave.
Excellent, fast wi-fi and in-room safe. Very helpful and pleasant staff.

I recommend using your car to visit the four missions – good parking at the missions.

This is great place for a single or a couple who want more room than just a hotel room. We looked directly down on the Riverwalk right where all the action is (there are a lot of quiet Riverwalk locations but this hotel is in the middle of the restaurants and nightlife (so there is some noise)). The docor is updated 'historic'. I'm guessing this was once a warehouse and I don't think there are any 90 degree angles. The bedrooms and bathrooms are spacious and nicely updated with odd corners and cubby holes in every room. The beds were super comfortable and the bathrooms had a shower over a large jet tub. The kitchen does not have an oven but has a 2-burner stove and a dishwasher (plus pots, dishes, fridge, etc.) if you choose to cook in (but there are many restaurants very close by). Some units have whirlpool tubs on a small patio but those units also have steps (lots of steps).

My one criticism is the size of the kitchen/living room - it was small ... fine for one or two., but if there are three or four (or more-heaven forbid) you better be very good friends because you'll be sitting on each other's lap. I loved it, my husband was slightly less enamoured - he wanted more room in the kitchen/living room because we had an additional adult traveling with us.

Very nice hotel with an awesome location. Not sure why they call this a "resort" since there are no hotel ammenities. The parking wasn't a big deal. No, it's not on the property, but it was only a few steps away. The room was small, but perfect if you're just looking for a place to sleep while you enjoy beautiful downtown San Antonio. You can't beat the location; right on the Riverwalk just above Landry's Seafood with other popular restaurants like Joe's Crab Shack, the County Line, and Hard Rock Cafe a stone's throw away. It is less than a 5 minute walk to the Alamo and all of the tourist attractions in the area. The Buckhorn Saloon/Museum/Restaurant is just on the corner with the Children's Museum around the corner. Walgreen's is conveniently located for some light grocery shopping perfect for easy breakfast essentials. Even though it's on the Riverwalk, the noise wasn't loud enough to interfere with you sleep even with the nightclub next door. My only concern would be for handicapped travelers since the hallways are pretty tight as well as the rooms which are chocked full of furniture. There is also only one elevator which gets busy during peak times. If you're a handicapped traveler, you should inquire about the handicapped accessibility of a room. I was also surprised that housekeeping didn't come daily to make up the room or the beds - oh well, not a huge deal and being located this close to everything sure makes it worth it! Highly recommended!

Historic 1928 structure many rooms with balcony view overlooking Riverwalk near Landrys. Our room with sitting area and compact kitchenette was on 7th penthouse level with a spiral narrow staircase to 8th floor bedroom with queen bed. If you are not able to climb stairs reguest single floor room. Christmas season wonderful view lights and music from river boats. Staff friendly and great especially David the conceriege. Unload your car in hard to see at night entrance, park in city garage for $9 a night, take only cash or check. Wyndham provides daytime shuttle to major places. Wyndham La Cascada more modern and roomy close by, we prefer Riverside for it's "character."

Yes, the hotel is on the River Walk which would be ideal except:

1. no parking
2. air conditioning or shall I say no air conditioning. This place has what they call chillers so it does not get cool at all in the units.
3. terrible musty smell.
4. washer/dryer. They have the LG ones that are supposed to save money. You know... the ones they have in Europe. One load is supposed to take 4 hours since it washes and dries. However, it took 7 hours before it stopped and the clothes were still wet. According to their maintenance people, that is normal. After you take your "damp" clothes out of the dryer you have to hang them up to dry. Does wonders for the musty smell.
