Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Denise622 Great service and location!
The hotel was everything we expected and more. I loved the location right off of the riverwalk. The staff was extremely friendly and our room was very comfortable. We stayed in one of the balcony rooms with a view of the riverwalk, however the large trees blocked most of our view. I loved that all of the downtown attractions were within walking distance. I would definitely stay here again!!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by guest24601 Time in the Riverwalk
the location can not be beat! I saw the San Antonio Spurs homecoming since it passed right by it. The lobby is modern and clean. The only complaint I would say is the bathroom smelled of industrial cleaners. =( The floor of the room were not swept or vacuumed everyday so the dirt stayed throughout your whole stay. The channel selection was basic but you will not spend enough time in your room to mind the limited selection.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by CASpursFan The most wonderful staff and customer service
It's always nice to stay at a place that is comfortable and clean, which is what this Holiday Inn was, but when you get excellent customer service it make your vacation a wonderful experience. We stayed several days, so we had contact with several shift changes at the front desk and every one of them was awesome. People acknowledged us and always greeted us with a smile, especially Bonnie, Francine and Rueben. They were very responsive to our every needs and went above and beyond to help us. Thank you for making our stay in San Antonio a vacation to remember....Go Spurs Go!!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Pattijwr Great location
I've stayed at this hotel 3x over the last 1.5 yrs. They've recently renovated and did a great job. The hotel is very conveniently located on the Riverwalk. Probably one of the best locations actually. It is at the quieter end but well located for restaurants, mall, dam, river tours and river taxi.
The amenities, pool, hot tub, gym, bar, and restaurant are all good. The parking is overly expensive in my opinion but if you want a car you pay it. Holiday Inn Express Riverwalk (which is not really on the Riverwalk but very close) gives free parking if you are a Holiday Inn Club member. This location does not recognize that.
I found the staff to be thoughtful and attentive at all levels. The parking attendants, bartenders, waiters/waitresses, room maids, front desk, maintenance crew that I'd run into.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by iZac Great Hotel, but...
The good in this Holiday Inn far outweighs the limited bad.
The good: outstanding location in Downtown San Antonio, on the Riverwalk, near lots of cool stuff; beautiful, modern, well appointed hotel; friendly, attentive staff; large, well designed rooms with hardwood floors, nice sized desk, in-room fridge, and incredibly comfortable beds.
The bad: First and foremost: CURSED HARD WATER. Ugh. In the sinks and showers. Soap never feels like it comes off your body, I didn't feel clean until I got back into my shower at home. While on the plumbing, the sink had a very slow drain. I didn't complain to management about either, but its the sort of thing you'd expect them to be on top off in a nice, fairly new property like this one. Other (minor stuff): The button to start the jets in the (outdoor) hot tub should be replaced (the whole hot tub could use a makeover); work on the building's alarm system resulted in awful beep noises coming through the in-room speakers for a little while (during the day, not too bad); no USAToday delivered one of three week days during stay (could be seen as a good thing depending on how you feel about USAToday).
Overall, this is a great Holiday Inn, and I will likely stay here again next time I'm in San Antonio.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by taylors2002 Poor Front Desk Staff
My husband, 2 children and I arrived a little before check in time and were asked to wait in the lobby until a room was available. I said that is fine and we waited.....and waited some more. There was probably 6 other guest that ended up checking in before we did. During this time waiting, staff members were at the desk talking very loudly and using profanity. It was so loud my family and I could hear. I understand these are young adults working there but professionalism definetly needs to be addressed at this facility. Besides this rude behavior from the staff, the beds were not as comfortable as I hoped they would be for the price, the walls are thin enough we could hear our neighbors all during the night and there was hair on the bathroom floors. I did email this location and they were kind enough to refund us the cost of our night stay. They stated that they would speak to the staff members in regards to the unprofessionalism. It's different if it was guests talking that way, but it was employees. I am not sure if we will ever stay at this location again due to the room itself.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Julie, California Excellent location!
This hotel is literally ON the Riverwalk! What an excellent deal. The food was delish and the servers were very friendly. The front desk personnel seemed a little indifferent to any questions or requests but were nice enough. The mattresses were a little hard for my liking but my husband thought they were okay. You do have to pay daily for parking and thats a downside. Again, the location for the $$ was fantastic. Walk out the back door and your on the River Walk just a 1/2 block from all the excitement. ****

This hotel is worth the value that you will pay for a clean, new style, and modern hotel, with excelent service, location and food. The pool is small, but enough for a while with the kids. I would add a bar over there :)

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by wa1700lowvoc Wonder vacation spot!!
Upon arrival they made my wife feel like a Queen. THE STAFF IS THE BEST!!! Carlos the Waiter and Alex the bar tender were great. The Valet is very quick. The only thing I can recommend is to get a concierge to help with excursion bookings. The folks at the front desk told me to ask the Valet guys for directions and ideas. They were very good at this but they didnt have addresses, prices, or phone numbers.

Location is awesome walking distance to everything and just far enough away from the crowds. I felt bad for the front desk it was short staffed had one person and she had a bit of a line but never stopped smiling never got frustrated just got the job done!

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by tsutsit fast check in and check out
clean rooms. easy check out, just leave keys either in your room or in the front desk. late check out if your a member of the rewards club. the only negative I can say is the expensive parking, I guess it comes with if you wanna stay in a good location besides the river walk. they also have river walk direct access at the back, but not recommended if you are going home very late since they are located in not a busy side of the river walk .

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by djtimbo great location and excellent stay
We chose to stay here because of the location although we were unsure of the hotel since we have never stayed there, we were extremely pleased with everything. We had a very short walk to the river and were very close to the downtown tourist sites. We had an excellent time and will stay at this hotel again. The staff was very helpful as well.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Joe6000 Super clean contemporary design
I stayed two nights in a beautiful room on the 22nd floor. It was spotless. I visited the restaurant for dinner, lunch and twice for breakfast. The food and service were excellent every time. I visited the bar both nights and the two different bartenders were friendly and provided great service. Front desk staff and everyone else I encountered was polite and efficient. I was attending a conference at a nearby and more expensive hotel where I could have stayed (company paying); I chose Holiday Inn for the IHG points, but I'll return for the great room and service.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by pleasedwithSA Beautiful Hotel and Great Service
Our stay was perfect. I called on the morning of our arrival to ask for a room on a lower level with early check-in, not only were both requests honored at the last minute, but we got a river view also (totally unexpected); thank you Bonnie. On our first night, we got in late from a concert; the desk clerk told us the restaurant was closed but the bar was open until 11:00 p.m. We rushed to the bar and sat down at 10:58. The lady (didn't get her name# took our order for burgers and served us, though they had stopped serving food. Also, the bell hops were particularly helpful with directions and instructions for catching shuttles, etc, so were the desk clerks and the employee working at the coffee lounge.
The entire hotel is beautifully decorated; our room was great; breakfast in the restaurant was good. The coffee at the lounge in the front of the hotel is excellent. The hotel was conveniently located to everywhere we wanted to go #walking distance# or a short shuttle ride. This is good because parking spaces are limited #we did not move our car during our stay). We will definitely stay again the next time we visit San Antonio.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Bill1969 Excellent hotel with great restaurant morning buffet
This hotel has a wonderful location- right on the River walk. The staff is helpful, rooms are clean with comfortable beds and a great night sleep. Just several blocks from the Alamo, you could not get a better hotel site. My wife and I had the morning buffet with fresh strawberries, waffles and all the fixings. We sat at a table looking down on the River walk one story below. We were there for only 2 days but can't wait to return.
