The Palacio del Rio is located right on the Riverwalk, and isn't that the reason that you're in San Antonio? To make it better, it's actually on a section of the riverwalk that provides a nice balance of activity and quiet. Some of the hotels that are right above the cluster of popular restaurants and bars open right onto a congested sidewalk in the evening. The HPdR just over a little bridge from the craziness, but it's not on the quiet and secluded backside of the Riverwalk near the Drury. There are several different bars and restaurants attached to the hotel, and some GREAT ones right next door.
On check in, the front desk staff was friendly. Bless their hearts, the computer system was going down, so I know their day had been crazy, and they were still smiling and polite to me and the other waiting guests. The street side lobby is nice, cozy and welcoming. My room was lovely. It was on the fifth floor, facing the "Patio Terrace" which gave it a little gated off porch to sit on in the morning. Pretty nice for someone who's not exactly a Hilton high-flyer! The decor in the room was modern but warm. I really liked it. Large bathroom with nice amenities, too.
I slept like a log after a steak dinner and quick lap around the Riverwalk. My room was cool and quiet, and the bed was comfortable.
I would LOVE to stay here again if I get to travel to SA again. I only stayed one night, and it was way too short!
