After not being offered a second night stay at the Hilton since they had a conference, had to discover a new spot to stay. So we came on over to the holiday inn. They got us in quick and with a smilie. The front desk gave us coupons and ideas for things to do. The Hilton did none of this...

We wanted to be close to things...It's like a half block from the River Walk and a convenient place to board to the tour boat. Modern decor, nice rooms, comfortable beds. Breakfast is not free. Some eat at local restaurants. Their restaurant is good (we had a dinner and a lunch there) and they have a "grab and go" place...

Kevin was amazing with our check in and helping us by giving us some free drink coupons after I asked. I would have gave them 5 stars if it wasn't for the terrible Mattress. We stayed 5 nights and I did not sleep due to the hard beds. Slept on short couch was sucked as much as the bed. We...

I wanted to give a special shout out to valet servicemen Jeff and Donte. Upon arriving the battery in my car died. They were invaluable in assisting me getting it fixed. This included driving me to the parts store to get another battery. While it would have been easier to refer me to a repair service, they took it upon...

Just wanted to say Thank you to Jeff, Isaac, and Donte. The Holiday Inn Riverwalk Valet guys were awesome! They were very professional and respectful. I don't normally take the time to write reviews.

This hotel is in a great location for walking to many fine restaurants along the RiverWalk. Our room was very nice, the view was of the RiverWalk and since it was the holiday season it was even prettier than normal. Everything was decorated for the holidays so it made San Antonio festive despite the cold rain that appeared the entire...

My brother invited us to San Antonio, he made the reservation. From the day we arrived until we left we were very amazed with all employees. The location of our room was fantastic.
