Embassy Suites by Hilton San Antonio Riverwalk-Downtown
Ranked #15 of 358 Hotels in San Antonio
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 13 March 2014

The Embassy Suites Riverwalk is one of the nicest hotels we have stayed in. We have stayed in other Embassy Suites but this one was particularly nice and quiet. Even though our room faced the street, we did not hear any noise. The evening "snack" was almost a full meal. Complimentary drinks also. We were able to slip out the back door and we were right on the Riverwalk and enjoyed an evening stroll.
The front desk staff and valet parking staff were very friendly and helpful. We wanted to do some shopping and were allowed to continue parking in the garage for the morning even though we had checked out of the hotel.
My only complaint with this hotel (and all Embassy Suites) is that wifi is not free. Even though we are HHonors members and should get complimentary wifi, I was not able to connect and was only given a help line number to call rather than the front desk being of help.
The location of this hotel is very close to The Market shopping area an restaurants.

Stayed March 2014, room 1614. Hotel is steps from the Riverwalk, and a grt starting point if you are a runner. Rooms are spacious and full of amenities. Would recommend a towel bar or warming rack near the shower, no place to hang towel while showering and there is plenty of room to add a table for storage/magazines, etc. Also would recommend a larger TV n the living room, for the space the set is too small from the couch. The free breakfast and happy hour were well done, not a cheap add-on. Would recommend getting to both early as they do get crowded towards the end. Staff were very friendly esp Catherine who worked the breakfast area. Pool area and gym are nice and a great view of the local area from the pool deck. Highly recommend ES and request a room w a balcony for an outside view.

Room Tip: ask for balcony

This hotel has a great location on the Riverwalk, with a lot of restaurant options within walking distance. The hotel has a great complementary happy hour and breakfast. I would recommend asking for a room with a balcony on a higher floor. It was a very nice hotel, and I would stay here again!

This hotel is well situated on the Riverwalk. The suites are spacious & very clean. Lobby, corridors etc are all well maintained. Good breakfast buffet. Most frustrating issue was the Wifi.... Very poor signal & connection constantly dropping making it very difficult to even send an email. Reported the issue to guest services but no improvement was made.

This hotel sits on the Riverwalk but off of the "horseshoe area". We loved the location! The river taxi stops right at the hotel and there is also an SA Trolley that dropped us right at the door. Our suite overlooked the Riverwalk and the balcony was a welcome place to put our feet up and relax after a day of sight seeing. I would definetly recommend The Embassy Suites Riverwalk!

The hotel is on the riverwalk, within a short walk to the walk, and all the restaurants and shops that San Antonio has to offer. The rooms are quiet, and coffee maker, microwave, mini fridge, outstanding shower.
