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!

Nice room with private balcony right on the river walk. Due to COVID the bar and dining was not open at the hotel but there were still quite a few restaurants open on the river walk. It was a quiet room and staff were friendly. On site parking is included in the price of the room. My only complaint is that the bathroom door had not been cleaned… Read more

It was a quiet room and staff were friendly. On site parking is included in the price of the room. My only complaint is that the bathroom door had not been cleaned around the handle, I could visibly see grime around it. Especially with COVID that is very important. Read less

Only in town one night on way to the Gulf. I love the Riverwalk and my son booked us rooms here. It’s quite lovely. Much more desolate given the current state. I’m hopeful we can come back later the in the year. Would definitely stay again. There are a lot of options here for hotels. Room was on third floor with balcony. Very clean moderately… Read more

Good size tv and work desk area. Great assortment of pillows. Shower was wonderful and they use bath and body works products which is a nice touch. Read less

I’m a platinum Ambassador in IHG so I like Holiday inns, usually. This hotel wouldn’t give me an upgrade even though the hotel was empty because of covid 19. We found about 8 long black hairs in the bathroom and room. There was a sheet used as a comforter on one of the beds. At breakfast, tables weren’t bussed even though only one table was… Read more

Of all the places we’ve stayed on the Riverwalk over the years, the lodging on our recent trip, at the Holiday Inn, was the absolute best. The hotel location was perfect, not smack in the middle of the Riverwalk where it tends to be noisier, but not on the fringes either. Everything we wanted to see and do was within an easy walking distance. The room itself was spacious, well-insulated against noise from neighbors, and clean. The bed was comfortable. Our breakfast was superb, the portions generous, and the wait staff friendly and attentive. The front desk staff, particularly Sabrina Rodriguez, were friendly and most helpful with dining recommendations and directions. We will be staying at the Holiday Inn Riverwalk when we visit San Antonio in the future and highly recommend it. Read less

We booked a room with a balcony overlooking the Riverwalk. The room was as advertised, but our view was of two derelict buildings across the river. Nothing the hotel could have done about this - just be aware that parts of the Riverwalk are in decline.
