Embassy Suites by Hilton San Antonio Riverwalk-Downtown
Ranked #17 of 358 Hotels in San Antonio
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 27 May 2012

We stayed here for 2 nights and it was the nicest Embassy Suites we have ever stayed in. I have stayed in several other hotels on the Riverwalk and loved this one the best. Loved the location, quiet area of the Riverwalk but still within walking distance of all the sites. The breakfest and Managers Reception area is spacious. The food at the managers reception is the best I have seen at any Embassy Suites, fruit, veggies, chips, salsa, cheese, cheese cubes, refried beans and cool snacks for the kids (4 diff snacks mixes, gummy bears, skittles and mini m&ms, too bad the kids weren't with us!) The room was big, with a wonderful shower. Only thing is we wished we had asked for a room with a balcony. We did however have a rivewark view. Pool area is small but sufficient, needed more loungers though. Plenty of other seating.

Room Tip: Book a room on the high level with a riverwalk view and a balcony.

We just came back from a 5 night stay at Embassy Suites Riverwalk and truly enjoyed our experience at this hotel. It is new(1 yr), clean, well maintained, and luxurious. On the quiet area of the riverwalk, take the elevator down by Luke's restaurant to get right on the Riverwalk and avoid the streets-heavy amount of people requesting money and food. On the Riverwalk there is none of this and feels safe with heavy police presence.

Great variety at the free breakfast every morning- arrive around 8-8:30 am on the weekends to avoid the crowds so you can get a choice table. Manager's reception every evening with free drinks (the margarita's and rum punch hit the spot after a long day at Sea World) and appetizers was nice. Light snacks- cheeses, fruits, candy, chips/dips/salsa, and pasta salad, etc. There is a parking lot directly across the street for $20 a night if you do not want to pay the $27 valet parking. If you want free wi-fi service go on the Embassy Suites website and join Hilton Honors club for free- this will allow you free wi-fi ($10 a day) when you check in.

All 2 queen bed riverwalk view rooms have a balcony with a peaceful pool/riverwalk view. This is the only room guaranteed a balcony and it was so nice to be able to sit out there in the morning with coffee or at night with wine. The 3rd floor rooftop pool and hot tub where very relaxing and had great pool furniture with plush cushions and a cabana. Was surprised at the touches of luxury from the granite counters in the oversized bathroom and wet bar area with mini-fridge and microwave, to the luxury bedding and plush beds, and the beautiful oversized art work depicting watercolor scenes of the Riverwalk. The lobby has a giant water feature and is very elegant and serene. Maid service was discreet and efficient and all staff were very courteous and accomodating. Excellent stay will definitely return!

Room Tip: 2 queen riverwalk view rooms are the only rooms who definitely have a balcony. The view is wonderfu...

We very much enjoyed our stay at the Embassy Suites. We were particularly impressed by the quality and selection of free meals/drinks for the breakfast and evening snacks. We were traveling with teenagers so having extra food available helped offset the costs of eating out. The suite was clean and nicely furnished, the location was great (on the riverwalk), and the staff was friendly. Would recommend.

This hotel is located on the RiverWalk, but far enough away that you don't get all the noise. The location is only a few blocks from the Alamo and an easy walk to the center of the Riverwalk restaurants and action. The staff is helpful and friendly. The included breakfast was excellent each morning and the manager's reception offered enough food and drink that you could almost make a meal of it. The room was a decent size suite and quite comfortable. I would definitely recommend this hotel if you are visiting San Antonio.

Room Tip: Choosing a higher floor will provide you a better view of the city and there is less noise.

This hotel is on the River Walk but about a block away from the main action. As a result you get the convenience without all the noise. The hotel is new & beautiful & the staff is very helpful & friendly. The cost of the hotel is reasonable & includes a full cooked breakfast in the morning & cocktails & snacks in the late afternoon. I highly recommend this hotel.

Ok so hear I sit in this Embassy Suites trying to enjoy my glass of Merlot that just cost $12.00 for what looks to be maybe a 5 oz pour of off the self brand no less. REALLY $12.00!!!!

Should I mention the gross breakfast the last 2 mornings, REALLY and I am spending $151.00 per night!!!!!

How about the bed that's as hard as a rock and I am spending how much per night and this hotel is only 18 months old, REALLY!!!!!!

Come on Hilton I have been a loyal customer for I don't know how long and you guys have never compd me to an upgrade room, you have me sleep in a bed that's like a rock and you pass off something that's suppose to be a breakfast with coffee that's coffee in name only and then you charge me $12.00 for an off the shelf Merlot?

This is about all a guy can take, REALLY!!!!!

PS Hilton, in case you don't know it, there are other hotels out there.

Room Tip: Don't stay here
