I recently spent a week at the Hilton Palacio del Rio for a work event at the Convention Center. The hotel appears to be in the final stages of a full renovation, with some minor plaster work still occurring in the lobby area. My hallway, room and bath had a warm, modern design and were spotlessly clean. The suite included a sitting room with television, bar and balcony. The bedroom was a king bed, sitting chair, desk, desk chair and a second balcony. The large bath with granite, marble and tile had separate bath and shower. My room, on the convention center side, had great balcony views of the Tower of the Americas.
The hotel is located on the River Walk and includes several restaurants and bars on the river level. Additionally, all of the many River Walk restaurants, bars and shops are only steps away. Walking left out of the front doors will take you directly to the Alamo in about 5 minutes. The Convention Center is directly across the street (the entrance is less than a 3 minute walk from the Hilton).
I was very pleased with my stay and look forward to staying there again next year when our event returns to San Antonio.
Note: The ceilings are abnormally low in this hotel. They appear to be about 7’. While not a problem for me at 5’11”, I suspect this could be disconcerting for some taller travelers.
