Been there a few times. The parking is awful. If you want to experience the river you should stay in a hotel on the river. Less stressful. The boat tours are nice. It's cool and you learn some history. Just remember it's hot in the...More

This place is by far amazing. What other city has a river that runs through it and through a mall for that matter. It's truly memorable. The boat rides are great! You get the real feeling of the antiquity of the city and if you...More

We enjoyed walking the Riverwalk and seeing the San Antonio River. It was quite clean and those people on the cruise boats were having a good time.

Did not enjoy our visit here at all. Riverwalk is dirty, pathway could use a power wash, walkway filthy. Would not eat outside due to the numerous birds stealing food from your plate. River is green and smelly, also tunnels under pathways smelled like urine....More

The Riverwalk along the river is quite nice but the river itself isn't anything to write home about. It's pretty dirty and when the midday heat hits, it has an undesirable smell. The green color is dismal looking and not very inviting. All I can...More

Wonderful locations to visit. From downtown to the less travelled/busy upscale...from commercial to property side...we visited multiple locations, walked for miles multiple days. Beautiful. The architecture, history, waterfalls and statues, little bridges and the people watching...a daily activity and something we would recommend strongly for...More

The Drury is a great place to stay. It's location is perfect for walking to anything you want to see. It's a reasonable walk to the Alamo or the mall.
