“Dark and Romantic, a wonderful San Antonio escape from the heat!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 12 October 2010

Husband and I stayed here for our wedding night and wanted to do the same for our wedding anniversary. : Beautiful hotel, as soon as you walk in you forget that it is 100 degrees outside. It is an island of cool away from the heat. The restaurant, though pricey (and small) is top notch. The Bar is fun too, especially on Friday and Saturday nights! To me, this is a hotel for couples, looking for an escape. Right on the Riverwalk and Houston street (lots of fun bars close by). Not an inexpensive stay either. My biggest complaint is that the rooms, though nice, are kind of small.

The Hotel Valencia is a wonderful place to enjoy your time away from home. After reading all the reviews on how dark this hotel was, I guess I prepared myself for what I would find. I can honestly say that I did not find it dark at all. I opened the blinds each morning and the room was absolutely fine...beautiful sunshine. The rooms are decorated in very dark colors art deco style and they are very comfortable and clean. All the staff we encountered were always very friendly and helpful. One suggestion that I would make if it is possible request a room on the Riverwalk side. We were on the 11th floor city view room and we could hear the buses, trucks, motorcycles all the time. Sleeping was definately a challenge noise wise it was quite loud you could hear everything that was going on the sthe street below. I would most definately stay at this hotel again but in a room that faces the Riverwalk. Parking two blocks away on Travis Street for $12 a day. Citrus Restaurant at the hotel a MUST!!!!

My wife and I thoroughly enjoyed everything about the Valencia for 7 days last week.
The room was sleek and modern with plenty of space and a comfortable leather chair and ottoman for reading, relaxing or whatever. The River view was perfect, without being noisy and the staff in the V Bar (very cool place) knew us by name in two days and the other staff knew us in 3. The Hotel is is very convenient to the Riverwalk as well as other downtown locations and attractions. The food options were many and all that we sampled were very good. Great Staff and great experience!

The hotel was at a great location on the riverwalk. Parking is either valet ($25-30) or you'll need to park at a parking garage about 3 blocks away (garage is $12/night). The halls and rooms are low lighted (by design). The room was clean and the cleaning was satisfactory every day (stayed for 3 nights). Although the hotel claims to be a family friendly hotel, I would not recommend for small kids (especially in strollers).

The room was very nice! Extremely comfortable bed! Enthusiastic welcome at curbside and polite enough check in. The hotel is dark but that didn't bother me. Turned on every light in my room and it was fine. Good location! My big complaine however, is that it was VERY noisy! Thank god I always travel with earplugs. I could hear the elevator dinging all night, the ice machine and very loud neighbors. From the 4th floor, I could hear voices and music from the bar all night! Otherwise, the hotel is nice but do to the noise, I would definitely not stay here again!

We felt relaxed as soon as we entered the street level lobby. The water fall and aroma therepy gave the hotel entrance a spa feeling.
Our courtyard balcany room was very comfortable with a modern decor.
Exellent selection of wines in the Citrus.

This is a recently remodeled Hotel in San Antonio located on the RiverWalk away from the crowds down on the relatively upscale end. The decor is striking and the staff first rate. It's location is near a number of great resturants that represent the best that San Antonio can offer. The rooms are very comfortable and quiet.

The bar and resturant in the hotel are well matched to the area and complimented my stay.
