Beamed ceilings, exposed brick walls and terracotta tiled floors lend this 338-room stay the air of a Spanish Colonial-era hacienda, while the stately gardens recall Old World Europe. The standout Las Canarias restaurant sits over three levels that ramble down to the River Walk and features a local produce-driven menu. Rooms are decorated in warm, earthy tones (some have great river views), and all have lavish marble bathrooms and modern amenities like flatscreen TVs. The well-regarded spa, along with the fitness center, are located across the river at sister property Mokara Hotel & Spa.
In the Area
Take a self-guided tour of the River Walk and then head to lively Market Square, less than half a mile from the hotel, which celebrates the city’s Mexican food and culture: don’t miss “Primer Sabado” on the first Saturday of every month, a day-long fiesta that encompasses arts and crafts, street food, entertainment and children’s activities. Finally, head back to the spa and indulge in a “Riverwalk Foot Fix,” a pampering treatment aimed to ease weary feet with a soak, scrub, and massage.
How to Get There
We were only in town overnight. We chose this hotel because it was downtown and we were meeting up with family in The Mercado later for dinner for our grandson 's 11th birthday . We had wine and assorted cheeses in Las Canarias while we waited. The serene atmosphere, the guitarist, and the impeccable service provided by our bartender Shaq was the perfect way to shake off the work week on a Friday evening. If not for other commitments we'd have extended our stay!
I stayed here for 2 nights attending a conference at the hotel. I had a room overlooking the riverwalk. The room was spacious. My only complaint was that it could be a bit noisy with crowds partying on the riverwalk at night, especially since the hotel is across from some bars.
Hotel is conveniently located on the river walk, the decor is unique to the hotel's roots. If you're looking for an updated hotel this isn't it. But if you're looking for a hotel with it's own unique style then this is your gem.
This place has outstanding staff and service! This hotel is located right in the heart of the Riverwalk in San Antonio. The staff go out of their way to help make your stay and experience at the Omni La Mansion del Rio a memorable one! A 5 Star (rating) place in my book!!
This hotel has been a staple of San Antonio for years. Unfortunately, it shows. The rooms and hallways are dark and gloomy. The electrical outlets on the desk in my room don't work. They are worn out (won't hold a plug) and have no power. I have to string my laptop across the room to the couch table which is not comfortable.
Since the desk power doesn't work, there aren't enough charging areas - especially for USB. Very disappointed. Besides, the lighting is so poor, I can't read anything anyway. If you're hungry, you can use the available fridge and snack tray, but the items are 3x more expensive than you can get from the CVS which is within a 5 minute walk.
