The Hilton Hotel Palacio del Rio is hard to review because it’s been such a comfortable and popular destination for me the past 20 years. With that said, I tend to overlook what some might consider faults.
It’s a lot like my old flight jacket I have. It’s not attractive to everyone, but it’s not for everyone’s attraction. It receives great comments and accolades, but some say it’s a little old and tattered around the edges. But if you do want the flavor of Old San Antonio; other than going to a boutique hotel like the Mengar downtown, this is Su Casa.
Rooms are comfortable, food service is very good as is the insanely good time at Dirty Nelly’s and the breakfast buffet at Ibiza’s is good, not great.
The great thing is that it is next door to The Little Rhein Steakhouse (make reservations asap [--], and less than a 5 minute walk to Casa Rio, the very best in TEX-Mex anywhere.
Centrally located on the Riverwalk, directly across from the Riverwalk cruise dock, The Hotel del Palacio is easy to get to anything or nothing on the Riverwalk. Low balconies are preferred on the Riverwalk if a parade is going on, if not, get a high floor for a quieter time. The streets get loud on weekends with bikes and cars.
All in all, this is one of my favorite places to hang my jacket for a couple days and relax, explore or just hang with my best friend, my bride. We always embrace and never expect and are never disappointed in this hotel.
