Urban comfort and great location – Great staff, beautiful building, comfortable room, good food & service in the restaurant and bar. Toiletries were very high quality, conceirge service very accommodating (even on Thanksgiving day) and we loved the chic, stylish ambiance of the hotel. Right on the riverwalk. Only challenge was that our room was over a street with many trucks - especially in the am!
You HAVE to stay here!! – This has been beyond a doubt the best place I have stayed in a long time. I travel a lot with my husband on business and always bring my little one with us. When we arrived there were plenty of people at the entrance of the hotel to greet us and show us the way to the front desk. When we got to our room there was a plate of cookies and milk for our 5 year old son. What a nice treat!!! We were close to everything and everyone went above and beyond to make our stay the best. WE WILL BE BACK!!
Wonderful getaway – Hotel Valencia is by far the best hotel on the riverwalk. Just a short distance away from all of the noise. What a perfect getaway! Dimly lit it lends to the ambience of the hotel. This is truly a step above for San Antonio, truly unexpected. The service is impeccable. Just ask and they go above and beyond for anyone. Excellent food in the restaurant, Citrus. I hear they have great rates for the summer!
It was..well...okay – I went to Citrus for my birthday and then Valentine's Day and neither vist left me very happy. I felt as though the staff was kind of stuffy and like I had walked into Neiman's wearing a tank top and no shoes. We even had a reservation weeks in advance!! The fish I had was average and my wife returned her entree. The hotel itself is wonderful...but the restaurant doesn't live up to the sterling standard the hotel has set.
save yourself – SAVE YOURSELF!! I was highly disappointed as soon as I stepped foot in the hotel. We were warmly welcomed with a $27 valet parking charge without warning as well as a rude desk clerk. If you are looking for a romantic get away, this is most definitely not the place for you. The bed was extrememely squeaky and the paper thin walls allow you to hear everything that is going on outside, in the halls and in the rooms next door, which probably means everyone else can hear inside the room as well. After requesting a room with a view, I was placed in a room with a gorgeous view of a building next door. The decor of the room was plain, to say the least, as there was an arrangement of sticks as one of the focal points of the room. We then requested late check out, which is only 1 in the first place, only to get woken up by an employee of the hotel banging on our door an hour or so early ensuring we were awake for "late" check out. The bathroom was tiny and could barely hold 2 people. If you enjoy blowing money on overly priced.....everything, then this is definitely the place for you!
Best drinks, Best atmosphere – Definately the place for making business connections. The bar is small, but the atmosphere and drinks are just what the busy executive needs at the end of a long day. Before you know it, you'll have spent a couple of hours enjoying drinks and conversation. A definate favorite.
Could be better – Not much service, great looking place, loud DJ music, nothing live, lots of people. Made this place several times. Had to go to the bar to get my drinks. The music was so loud you could not talk. They could use an investment in some live entertainment designed for people to be able to communicate.
Best bar service and atmosphere – With the beaded curtains and hip atmosphere, there isn't a better bar in SA. The service was excellent and the knowledge of the bar staff was unbelievable. The crowd and music were perfect, not to mention the art displayed throughout the bar. We had a fabulous time and will definitely return!!
User review by baadam68 – Hotel
Valencia is the most romantic place for couples ,very dim lighting,mink bed spread,food outstanding!!!. service in the rest. espicially server Ramiro, and chef Terry,
manager Raul. true they don't have a swimming pool but that can also be in the pros list. because families are attracted to pools ,that means kids and alot of noise, not very romantic now is it. so Hotel Valencia is the most romantic Hotel
Take a Headlamp or Torch – I ended my visit with a tumble down the barely-lit stairs of this hotel--as I lay on the floor, I was observed with some curiousity by 5-6 bellhops but no offers for assistance. The hotel did allow us to check out an hour late without charging us for it so that I could rest a little more. My friend and I thought that perhaps the darkness in the lobby, hallways, restaurants, and rooms was so that one might not be recognized. No chocolates on the pillow, housekeepers were friendly. Check-out slow, but perhaps due to the light level at the desk. Enjoyed the linens and the beds had excellent mattresses.
