“Loved this Hotel! Great location, beautiful rooms, and friendly staff!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 11, 2011

My husband and I stayed at this resort for 3 nights last week. We LOVED it!
The compimentary breakfast was fabulous. The evening reception was wonderful. The room was beautiful. And the staff was very friendly and helpful. We loved the location on the quiet end of the Riverwalk, but we were able to walk everywhere that we wanted to go!
The only complaint is that the hotel ran out of regular coffee for the in room coffee makers, and we had to leave very early on Sunday morning, so we missed the complimentary breakfast and were not able to get a cup of coffee before leaving. Otherwise, everything was perfect. If we ever go back to San Antonio we will definitly be staying here again!!

Great location, easy to get to everything, excellent staff. As always with Embassy Suites - great manager's cocktail reception every day and bountiful breakfast included in room rate. Would definitely stay there if I go back.

I stayed at the Embassy Suites Riverwalk for 2 nights with my wife and 6 year-old son. We had an early flight and arrived at the hotel around 11:30 am. The valet parking area was very busy, and the attendant had an “attitude” and indicated that check-in wasn’t until 3:00 pm and to back my car over to the entrance area. I didn’t expect to check-in but wanted to park and have my bags held so that we could go to lunch and start enjoying the area. I went inside and was not only able to check-in early, but was also upgraded to a partial river view with a balcony. I assume this is because I am an Hhonors Diamond member, although I never received my Hhonors "My Way" benefit of water and snacks.
The room had a living room area, with a separate bedroom. The bathroom was on the way to the bedroom, so you could get to the bathroom without having to go into the bedroom area. This was good since our son goes to bed early. The living area had a drawer unit the HDTV sat on, couch, small table, counter, microwave, and mini fridge. The couch was not very comfortable. There is NO safe in the room.
The hotel is fairly new and did not show much signs of wear. The lobby is large and nicely decorated. The free breakfast was good with many options as well as a made to order omelet area.
The hotel is on the river walk, but not the heavily trafficked “tourist area”, it is about a 5 minute walk to the more tourist area of the river walk. Besides the initial valet attendant’s attitude, everyone else at the hotel was very friendly and courteous.

This hotel is rather lovely, brand new. I am not quite certain if my room had been slept in truly, because it had a new smelling aroma, like when you move into a new home. Very refreshing, located directly on the Riverwalk, couldn't have enjoyed my stay more. My room was very big, and I loved how I had a refridgerator so that I could keep my beverages cold. I would very much so suggest this hotel, it was great. The staff was so helpful, housekeeping was polite and made every effort to say hi.

Had a tremendous stay at the Embassy Suites San Antonio Riverwalk. The hotel is beautiful, the rooms are spacious and elegantly appointed with all of the necessary amenities, the staff was friendly, professional and courteous, and the food at Lukes was far superior than your typical hotel dining experience. I would recommend this hotel without hesitation and can't wait to go back!

Great location on the Riverwalk. There is a huge waterfall on the Riverwalk side that is stunning. It kind of attaches the building to the Riverwalk. Really cool planning for this location. Spacious suite with everything needed and more. I had a balcony overlooking the Riverwalk, it was so beautiful. Staff anticipated my needs. Breakfast was Awesome. I felt so at home there. It was my first time in San Antonio but will definitely return with the family, and I know where I will be staying. Highly recommended.

This was a pleasant experience at the Embassy Suites San Antonio Riverwalk. The rooms were clean and everything was as you would expect from this chain. There is a rooftop pool and hot tub with a nice view of the San Antonio skyline. One item of note, the building is not of the "typical" Embassy Suites design with the rooms overlooking a large open atrium. The building has been converted to an Embassy Suites fairly recently. The hotel itself is located directly on a "quiet section" of the Riverwalk and a short, scenic walk takes you to the restaurants and bars. Market Square, The Alamo, Hemisphere Park and The Tower of the Americas are all within walking distance. Otherwise, there is a shuttlebus stop right outside the front door of the hotel with an all-day bus pass at $4.
