This hotel being a bank at one time has beautiful large ceilings painted with gold and figurines, is lovely to look at. With Breakast and happy hour included its a must place to go and convenient to the Riverwalk. I will recommend it to anyone going to San Antonio!

Every day your breakfast is included but is not the usual continental one is actually super. And your dinner is also included so you can not ask for more,still we ate along the riverwalk but if not you can count on it. Easy acces to the River Walk and service is awesome and friendly. I think that is worth it. The main pool is on top of the roof and they have other quiet areas than you can see the sourrandings, talk and relax also.

Room Tip: we didn't care for the view and we got a room view to the roof so if you care ask for something...

The service at this hotel was top notch. The best of any hotel that I've ever been to. All employees greeted you and asked if you needed anything...including general manager. Room was cozy and comfortable...loved the bathroom with jacuzzi! Rooftop pool and hot tub had amazing views of the city. Breakfast and happy hour was plentiful. Location was great...could walk to anywhere from this hotel. Will definitely be back.

After reading all of the reviews of this hotel, I realize the bar was set pretty high. However, it lived up to those high standards and then some. From check-in to check-out, our experience was exemplary in every respect. The room was tasteful and very cozy, with the most comfortable bed I have ever slept on in a hotel. The hotel offers a buffet breakfast included in the price of the room which is better than some of the high-priced buffets in other hotels. They also provide drinks and snacks in the evening, which was a nice touch. All in all, our trip could not have been any more pleasant, and when we return to the Riverwalk we will be staying at the Drury Plaza.

Room Tip: I asked for a high floor, and had a beautiful view of the Tower of the Americas and downtown from th...

Love, Love, Love this hotel. It is right on the Riverwalk. Their rates are reasonable. If you go to their website there are numerous options for rates. Free hot breakfast in the morning. Free alcoholic beverages for adults in the evening and free food for everyone. This is a great hotel for any group or individual. If you have kids, the free food is a real money saver. They have both indoor and outdoor pools. The lobby is beautiful. This was an old bank building, and Drury went in and did a major overhaul. The rooms are great with ceiling fans and comfortable beds. Yes! If you are a history buff, check out the photos and history of downtown from the days of horse and buggies til the present. Make sure to go down to the riverwalk level and see the old bank vault and histoical pictures.
I highly recommend this hotel .

Room Tip: Upper rooms have better views. If you get a king suite ask for a room in the San Fernando Tower. Gre...

Location is wonderful, staff is wonderful, great happy hour and breakfast. You could fill up on this food and not eat anywhere else. Although food is predictable. Walk to anywhere from this location. No complaints. This hotel is a converted historic bank, which gives it some charm.

Right on the Riverwalk. Take the elevator to the basement level and follow the signs. Once out of the doors turn right to the best location of the Riverwalk. Stop at Rita's on the River for a delicious Margarita (happy hour starts at 3pm, $3 margaritas).
Drury staff are on the ball. They are very concerned that your stay at the Drury Plaza is a pleasant stay, which it was.
Happy hour is a great time to meet other guests. The drinks are great; wine, beer and mixed drinks. Food is something to be desired. Breakfast is great with a wide assortment of fruit, eggs, sausage, biscuits, pancakes, bagels, toast, cereal, yogurt, coffee, tea, and juice.
Popcorn and soda available all day.
Rooms are really nice, clean and comfortable. Will definitely look at Drury hotels for future travel.

Room Tip: Larger and nicer rooms in new San Fernando addition. Only con, you need to take two elevators.
