Holiday Inn Riverwalk

San Antonio, Texas

The hotel

Recently renovated to offer a high standard of comfort, the Holiday Inn San Antonio Riverwalk also enjoys a great location close to bars and restaurants. You’ll be able to walk everywhere or simply hop in the car for the short drive to attractions. Guestrooms are stylish and well equipped with premium amenities – upgrade to a room with a river view or opt for a luxury suite, perfect for families or couples simply wanting more space. Take time out from a busy schedule to relax by the swimming pool, popping to the whimsically named Mugg’s Café for gourmet coffee, breakfast or lunch. Windows on the River Restaurant & Lounge is ideal for dinner, admiring what’s on your plate as much as the view that surrounds you!

Great service and a great location. You can eat breakfast overlooking the Riverwalk which is nice and it is close to everything you would want to do. They also have a nice happy hour. The only negative and the reason I did not give it 5 stars is that the cleanliness of the room needed work. There was a blood stain and a couple of other stains… Read more
Great service and a great location. You can eat breakfast overlooking the Riverwalk which is nice and it is close to everything you would want to do. They also have a nice happy hour. The only negative and the reason I did not give it 5 stars is that the cleanliness of the room needed work. There was a blood stain and a couple of other stains on the sheets of one of the beds and the bathtub and shower was not cleaned well. They got it fixed very quickly but they need to do some retraining. Read less

Pictures are very deceiving. The rooms with balcony are very small. We got one with a king size bed and it barely fit. Also when we got on the bed it squeaked a lot and some bolts fell out of it 🙄 called maintenance and he "fixed" it so when he left got o the bed and bolts fell again! The pool is very enclosed it is too hot and it is very small… Read more

The pool is very enclosed it is too hot and it is very small about 10x10. In the morning they were cleaning the top room and we could hear everything from vaccum to furniture being moved... check it out before you book. Read less

We arrived here after a horrible Amtrak train journey that was 14 hours late. My son had spent most of his 16th birthday sitting on a dirty train so I’d emailed the hotel just to ask if they could make a note so that the person at the front desk could wish him happy birthday as we’re from the UK and thousands of miles from home.

We arrived here after a horrible Amtrak train journey that was 14 hours late. My son had spent most of his 16th birthday sitting on a dirty train so I’d emailed the hotel just to ask if they could make a note so that the person at the front desk could wish him happy birthday as we’re from the UK and thousands of miles from home. I had a reply from Sabrina to say she’d make a note. The hotel staff were amazing! When we went up to the room there was a plate of chocolate chip cookies, milkshake, and chocolate dipped strawberries and cream and best of all a card signed by all the front desk staff wishing my son a great birthday! It was such a lovely gesture and we were all really touched by it. Our hotel room was fab: it overlooked the Riverwalk, was clean, and spacious. The location was great: we didn’t have a hire car and didn’t need it here - Everything was within walking distance. Thank you Holiday Inn! Read less

This place is AMAZING!!! We have stayed here four consecutive years on our yearly Father/Son trip and I wouldn’t ever think about staying anywhere else. From the valet parking crew, to housekeeping, the bartender, whose name I can’t remember, and of course the front desk ladies. Hazel was AWESOME!!! She was very helpful, polite, informative, and friendly. You’d be making a mistake to stay anywhere else while in San Antonio. Very clean rooms, comfortable beds, and the balcony view which overlooks the Riverwalk is out of this world. Lifetime customer here!!! Read less
