“Very nice hotel, great location”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 9, 2013

We stayed here for a wedding recently and the hotel was very nice. The location is great, right on the Riverwalk, close to restaurants. I loved the big lobby of the hotel and all the couches. Our room was very nice and spacious. The restaurant with the patio on the Riverwalk was also nice and we had a great Easter brunch. Would definitely recommend!

I have stayed at The Westin a couple of time (I am a local). Yes, the brand itself is synonymous with elegance, refinement, and luxury. Their guest rooms are very comfortable, service superb and location ideal. But that comes with a price. If money is not an issue, The Westin Riverwalk is one of your best options in town. However, for a fraction of the cost you can find many other hotels within the Riverwalk area. Remember, how much time do you really spend in a room? As long as it is clean and quiet, I can do without the feathered pillows and flat-screen TVs. What about you?

This hotel is within walking distance of the Alamo, the Mexican Market, and anywhere you care to eat. Every staff member we came in contact with was very friendly and will to help. Public parking is right across the street ($15/day), an option vs. valet parking at the hotel. The hotel is right on the riverwalk. We parked for a three night stay and never moved the car.

Room Tip: On 4th floor is the heated pool and workout center.

My husband came to San Antonio for medical treatment and we stayed at the Westin post surgery. What an accommodating group! They helped with an earlier check-in and met our every need. It was a beautiful place to relax and recuperate. They welcomed us with a fruit and cheese basket and made our stay the best we have ever experienced. We would highly recommend this hotel.

First of all, I'm kind of a hotel snob (so my husbsnd says). That doesn't mean I always stay in expensive hotels, just give me a clean room and good service and its ALL good in my book. The Westin Riverwalk has always been my favorite hotel in San Antonio!! Just the way it smells when you walk in is delightful! I have actually bought on several occasions from their White Tea candle collections. Love it. Pricey tho!
The rooms are great! The beds are wonderful. We always get the river view.
The pool is small, but lovely. I really like the atmosphere. The staff is nice and helpful.
They do help as much as they can if you have little ones in tow. You can rent strollers if you forgot yours at home (we did).
It's just a great place to stay. Everything is within walking distance. Plus your further down the river from all the crazy nightlife activities. We have been to this hotel many times and will keep coming back. It's worth it!

Stayed during a weekend conference. Absolutely beautiful hotel. Rooms were spacious, modern, and clean. Hotel amenities were nice, including pool. Location? Unbelievable - right on the Riverwalk in the most beautiful and romantic locales! (I wish my wife had been on this trip with me!). Restaurant downstairs, with outdoor seating right on the river - gorgeous. Locale to other hotels, Alamo, etc all within minutes. Try for Riverwalk view room, not just for the view, but also on other side of building, one can hear the buses late at night down on the avenue. Asking for a high floor would also help.

Highly recommended.
