We have stayed here several times. Every time is a great experience. Love the rooms - how big they are. Always clean. Love that the premium floors offer free snacks. The happy hour that is free is excellent and definitely one of the many reasons why we love it here. They offer free breakfast as well. Staff is very friendly...

I was part of a 40+ group that travelled to San Antonio for the Fiesta and we had the good luck to be booked into this hotel. Check in was fast and efficient and the location right on the River Walk was fantastic. There were multiple attractions, restaurants and bars within easy walking distance for all ages in our group....

Great customer service, location, happy hour and breakfast!! If the price bothers you, the free happy hour and breakfast makes up for the price if that is a problem. Location is down river from the crowds, perfect!

Easily my favorite Embassy! In addition to being a big, clean relatively new hotel, everything we experienced was top notch. I happened to be here with my family while working and I think something else must have been going on. The hotel was absolutely packed! The breakfast area is absolutely huge and the crew that works here was more than...

Stayed here for several nights when in San Antonio on business. It's in a great location (on the RiverWalk) and is within walking distance of tons of restaurants, shops, etc. I will say that I booked a River view, but didn't end up getting one (not sure what happened), so that was certainly disappointing. My room was huge though, with...

The room and hotel were great (fan a little noisy but we could live with it---also took forever to get hot water). Now that my Hilton Honors card has $735.02 too much charged on it....not sure. Will see when this gets resolved.

Spent 2 nights here for a travel stop and couldn't have been more pleased. They charge $30 per night for parking but that is the norm for San Antonio. The breakfast is wonderful as is the evening mixer. The rooms are huge and quiet. It is about 2 blocks from all the action spots on the Riverwalk but that is...

I am writing this review still staying at this hotel. It is in downtown close to the Riverwalk and not that far from the Alamo. Parking is a little tricky as there isn't a parking lot you can just pull into and park like I thought. There is either a parking valet or a public parking lot across the street...
