I took my daughter to the Westin Riverwalk to celebrate her 9th birthday. When we were checking in, I told the desk clerk about my daughter's birthday and she wished her a happy birthday and upgraded our room. Our room was on the 4th floor, river side, and right next to the pool. We loved the location! The hotel is not where all of the action is, but that was just fine with me since I was with my 9 year old. It is a very short walk to the busy part of the riverwalk. The hotel is absolutely beautiful and sits on the prettiest part of the riverwalk.
The first day, we stayed busy exploring the area all day and then returned to our room to change for a swim. The pool was not crowded at all, but it was a Monday night and I would expect that the weekends would be worse. The pool is small for the size of the hotel, but it is very pretty and relaxing.
When we returned to our room from our swim, their were cookies and milk waiting for us on a piece of slate with "Happy Birthday" written in chocolate for my daughter!! This was unexpected and so very appreciated by my daughter. At this point, she claims this is the best hotel in the world!!
Valet was quick. We called for our car the second day to drive to Six Flags Fiesta Texas. We used room service after our day at six flags and here is a tip....The room service prices are very high, so I ordered two meals off of the Children's Menu ($8.50 each and they come with a drink). When our food arrived, both children's meals were adult size portions. My daughter got the salmon which she loved and I got the chicken tenders which were also very good. I was so pleased at the portion sizes and the money I saved!
The only negatives that I could find during our stay is the price of valet, it is $30/night; and the walls of the rooms are extremely thin. We could hear our neighbors' TV, hair dryer, toilet flushing, etc.
Overall, I would recommend this hotel to anyone. The staff goes out of their way to make your stay great and memorable.
