This is my first time in San Antonio and I came for a large conference for my profession association. The hotel is located in a fabulous spot- my balcony overlooked the RiverWalk and all of my conference courses were just a 3-5min walk over to the Convention Center. On the lower level of the hotel you can just walk right...

HOTEL’S FAVOURITE REVIEW
Reviewed 27 October 2016 via mobile

I never give any Hotel a 5 star rating, but the location alone deserves 5 stars. Nice hotel, staff very good, house keeping not too bad, rooms very good and comfortable. Check in staff were very friendly and efficient. Room service lady Pilar did a great job, the poor lady was out of breath rushing to deliver hot food, thanks...

Hotel had a marvelous location right on the Riverwalk. Staff were very nice and helpful. Great place but rather pricey-$42 for Valet parking a day is rather excessive but all hotels seemed pricey in San Antonio.

This was our first day at the Hilton in San Antonio, I was not impressed, and I believe we won't be back for 4 reasons. 1. We were completely unaware the spiraling garage is a block away and must walk through an unwell-lit street, we felt unsafe. The valet nor the check-in staff made this aware to us. A block...

We tried this location again after a lackluster stay a few years back. Big mistake. When we booked the room we were assured the hotel had been renovated shortly after our first stay. Changing a couple of pictures on the wall doesn't qualify as a renovation. The rooms were exactly the same. Our first room had a strong moldy smell....

This is a very nice hotel located across the road from the convention center. It is close to lots of great restaurants and conveniently located right on the River. The room was very spacious and clean and the bed was extremely comfortable. The on-site Irish Pub was a great spot for some good eats and some lively entertainment.

This hotel exceeded all expectations! We got a spectacular deal even though it is right along the RiverWalk...especially considering our balcony overlooked the RiverWalk. My husband, the kids, and I had a great time looking out from the balcony at night...everything was all lit up and very active. This was our first time at the RiverWalk, and the room really...
