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
The hotel is in a convenient location to the river walk and staff were friendly. However, this hotel has a serious
mold and mildew problem. If you have allergies to mold steer clear. Several people in our party were not well during the hotel stay because of it. Due to its location on the river, hotel management needs to pay closer attention to mold/mildew control. That said, they were in the process renovating one part of the hotel, hopefully they strip it down and replace all carpet, drapes, etc.
Excellent stay and convenient location on the Riverwalk. We would stay again if booking for the area. Incredibly pleasant staff, wonderful food, and quiet room accommodations. Made us feel welcome and relaxed.
I attended a conference at this hotel. What a great location! The conference rooms were very nice for our group of 150 people. The layout can be a tad confusing, but everyone seemed to figure it out soon enough.
The rooms were clean and the beds were comfortable and we had a small balcony (not a great view, but still a fun place to sit). I also liked that there was a counter outside the bathroom with a mirror and outlets. A nice feature when you're sharing a room with a colleague. Oh, and the courtyard pool area is very pretty too!
The staff was fantastic and so attentive. I don't think I even had the chance to open the outside doors!
The location of the hotel is fantastic. Right on the riverwalk, and so close to all kinds of bars and restaurants. The hotel is also a short walk from the Alamo and museums. The hotel also has a good bar and restaurant. We ate breakfast there twice - outside next to the river. Very pleasant!
Great venue for an event!
