“More than we expected”
Reviewed 11 January 2014

Over the holidays we spent one night there after arriving from San Antonio Airport and departing to see relatives, I just wish I had more time there. The lobby is beautiful and the rooms were spacious and comfortable and the staff was welcoming. The had a nice breakfast and a manager's reception in the evening. We would definitely return to this hotel in the future and stay longer so we could explore the Riverwalk area.

This hotel is just on the edge of the Riverwalk. Rooms are very spacious, clean, and quiet. A nice cooked to order breakfast along with free drinks and snacks every evening is included in your stay. I was very happy with this hotel and would stay again.

Room Tip: I would request a room so that you have a view of the Riverwalk.

Very nice hotel with excellent full breakfast and evening manager receptions. Room cleaning service was a little slow. I kept having to ask for the extra towels and bathroom supplies daily instead of them noting my needs for the duration of my 5 day stay. Otherwise, no problems at all. Would go again.

We had never been to San Antonio but knew we wanted to stay on the Riverwalk. This was away from the busiest sections, which we liked, but still able to walk everywhere we wanted to go. We had a suite on the premium floor which they said they were trying out for other embassy suites to maybe use. This meant we got "free" items like snacks and drinks on our floor. (of course this floor costs more too) but since we had our son with us, the ability to grab a gatorade or soda or pack of chips was very convenient. Like other embassy suites, the breakfast is included, which again for a family makes life very easy. The complimentary happy hour every night was also a way to go down and enjoy the atmosphere and talk about our day and the plans for the next day. The only down side is the parking. The hotel charges $27 a day - which is ridiculous. Over the course of our 3 night stay we figured out that parking just 1 block away at the $5 a day lot was a much easier option - especially since we weren't driving all that much. The staff was very friendly and helpful. We'd recommend it for anyone - especially with kids in tow!

Room Tip: we were on the "premium" floor. Which includes wi-fi and at the time of our visit the con...

I've been to San Antonio several times but never really stayed at this hotel. My previous stay at Embassy Suites in San Antonio was at the Airport Embassy Suites. I was pleasantly surprised. This was a top notch hotel with the ambiance and feel of a luxury hotel like the Omni or Westin but at the same time caters to families and large group travelers. The suites were spacious, with up to date modern décor unlike the usual tired looks I have become accustomed to at family friendly suite-hotels. Breakfast was great with the cooked to order omelet bar quite popular with everyone including my family. My husband who isn't much of a breakfast person found himself looking forward to the mornings! Great customer service and the proximity to the river walk was of course the icing on the cake. Next time I am in San Antonio, I will certainly stay here!
