Great hotel BUT.. – It's a great hotel but if any of you are looking to save some $$ then book it at goo.gl/FPxYD They have some of the best hotel deals on the web!
Top Notch Service - Notices & Caters to your needs... – I had the pleasure of teaching a class on the 22nd floor (illustrious views) of the Hilton Palacio del Rio. The hotel staff really catered to my needs and always with a smile and gracious approach. A steward even brought me a blanket to wrap around my shoulders when I showed discomfort.
All employees of the Hilton were top notch: the valet, check-in, bell girl, maid service, stewards and kitchen staff.
A special thank you to Chef James Bocanegra for making all my meals a delight.
Ugly, tacky, maybe OK for families – Covered in gilded this, that and the other, this is a dreadful place, and seems to offer little better value than other, much better hotels nearby. Really feels like a roadside motel.
Super Location - Just on the edge of the crowds – Super Location - just on the edge of the crazy crowds on the Riverwalk. Was noisy on Fri & Sat until 10 pm from the Arneson Theater (but not unpleasant). We ate at Ibiza for dinner - good food. There are many places to eat (all meals) within a few blocks. Be sure to put out the do-not-disturb sign because housekeeping comes around early. Housekeeping was fast but not always thorough. Overall very nice. Use self parking - only 1 block away and reasonably priced. No free internet. Business Center to expensive.
A popular Spanish provincial-style hotel located on the River Walk. – The Scene
This 500-room hotel was constructed for HemisFair '68 in a remarkable 202 days--it was assembled like building blocks from units that had been prepared off-site. But haste, in this case, didn't mean sacrificing quality. Today this elegant hotel sits right in the heart of the River Walk and just steps from the Convention Center and HemisFair Plaza. While it's a favorite with meeting and convention attendees, is has the relaxing atmosphere of a leisure holiday hotel.
Although the River Walk's many restaurants are just steps from this conveniently located hotel, four restaurants can be found right on the property. Guests also have the option of room service. All rooms feature private balconies for lounging outside and watching the colorful tourist barges that cruise the river.
location, location, location – Certainly not the nicest place I've ever stayed but the location is excellent with Convention center across the street and the Riverwalk at the backdoor. The Riverwalk cruise boats are a short walk across the river. The Alamo is a short walk.
The room size in a king standard room was very adequate. An empty mini-fridge comes in handy as it can easily be stocked from a nearby Eckard's much cheaper than a mini bar. Request a room with a riverview balcony. Ours overlooked the Convention Center but gave us a nice view of the Tower of Americas.
