Hilton Palacio del Rio. Meaning ‘Palace of the River’ in spanish, the close-second tongue round these parts offers up some nice country-style rooms and features fancy balconies overlooking the Riverwalk.

It’s located smack dab in the middle of downtown San Antonio, if not a little south of the majority of hotels. This is the place for you if you’re into Riverwalk views and excellent service.

I really enjoyed the service here. From the desk attendant intent on scrounging up a room for me to the bell boy eager to help me locate that elusive Thai place I’d heard about.

Overall a nice, classy downtown staple by the water with clean rooms and a big hotel feel. Great for Fiesta.

Local from San Antonio, Texas, USA

The vibrant colors and culture of San Antonio waft in from the streets and fill the walls and atmosphere in this exceptional downtown option. Lining the riverwalk, the Hilton Palacio del Rio is a fiesta, latin stalwart.

It depends on the kind of person you are. The hotel was right near a handful of large inn options, as well as small bed & breakfast choices. If you like the pomp that comes with a balcony over the riverwalk, like I did, then you'll love this place.

With a large hotel comes a large staff. Most time I'm met by overburdening kindness and attention because each person feels they need to speak to you, even if only for a moment.

Here, however, I was taken care of with white gloves but never felt exhausted from the attention I had expected to receive. A kick for any traveller looking for a true San Antonio experience.

Great rooms! All of the rooms are large and have balconies. The bathrooms are spacious as well. The lobby and eating areas are a little cramped. This hotel is in a great location and is a great Hilton property in San Antonio with lots of local flavor.
