Embassy Suites San Antonio Riverwalk- Downtown is the only all-suite hotel located on the Riverwalk. The southern charm of this hotel is a theme carried throughout. The restaurant, Luke, has a New Orleans inspired cuisine and separates itself from the other upscale dining options with an entrance off Houston Street. The location is beautiful stroll to the center of all the activity on the Riverwalk and overlooks the San Antonio arts district; home of the Majestic Theatre and Tobin Center for Performing Arts.

Great location to walk along the Riverwalk, a nice walk to The Alamo and great restaurants nearby. The complimentary happy hour and breakfast were wonderful. Along with all the staff that we encountered.

Hotel's Favorite
Overall, my wife and I enjoyed our stay. We are not Hilton members or anything like that, and our basic requirements are a clean room that is taken care of, and for the most part, those needs were met. Our suite style room provided a pleasant space for our four night stay. I enjoyed the city view, and even though the river walk was within view of our balcony, calling it a riverwalk view might be a bit of a stretch. But overall, I'm not complaining about our view. Carpeting and furniture in our room seemed new and not worn, though the bed sheets did show some minor wearing that I think the hotel could keep more on top of. The hotel is by the quiet/less busy portion of the riverwalk. The portion of the riverwalk with more restaurants and shops is probably no more than 10 minutes away by foot. Other restaurants and stores along Houston St. are less than 5 minutes (highly recommend Bunz right across the street very a very excellent and fresh burger, great chili also). Market Square is about a 15 minute walk. The Alamo probably 15 minutes by foot. Breakfast was included for free and judging by many recent reviews, many people were less than pleased at the selection. I don't know what the normal pre-COVID expectations might be for some of these snooty yuppies, but I thought the selection of scrambled eggs, sausage links, cereal, apples, or oranges, and various bread or muffins was great. The selection was better than what you might get at a Comfort Inn, so again, if you are a picky eater who expects made to order type of service, you may need to curb your unreasonable expectations. Seriously, if you're complaining about the breakfast here, you probably are a snooty person who is hard to pleased. Get over yourself. I would say that some of the furniture around the hotel could be upgraded, especially around the pool area. As for the pool, the space is tiny so if a pool trip is what your hoping for, you might opt for a place with a larger pool and more chairs. I could give this place 4 stars, but overall, I was happy with our room, the breakfast, and how nice the staff was, and that made our stay here very pleasant.

I wish someone had told me this: the hotel is a 20 minute slowly paced walk to the Hyatt (which is essentially the heart of the Riverwalk 'fun zone'). If you absolutely want to park to be near The Riverwalk shopping plaza and the walk itself, we recommend parking at the Convention center for a one time fee of $10 (mind you, it was a Sunday). It was much cheaper than other locations, so I highly recommend it. On the first night of our stay, we arrived very late at the hotel and splurged on the valet parking. Afterwards, we parked in the lot across the street. One day costs $25.38 which is much cheaper than the $39 plus tip we paid for the only service the hotel offers (Valet Parking). Soon after, the drivers who parked our car, were wearing masks and we inquired about why this was so. One of the workers got Covid and so they masked up. The hotel has a standard large lobby and the hallways are nice, but the room itself is small for the price we paid. We got a 2 room with Riverwalk view. I had a higher floor but the rooms which end with a 19, or 21 (and I believe one other room) have small vents so the room can get hot at night. The room numbers on the higher floors consist of 4 digits. The fix is to keep the bathroom door closed, so we did. You won't find fancy USB ports here, but the 2 large tvs worked well and the beds were very disappointing in terms of comfort, as was the hide abed (sofa bed). I loved that there was a nice fridge and microwave to store and reheat leftovers, but maid service was hard to find in the halls. We were asked if we wanted someone to enter our room and we specifically said "No thank you" but someone did on two occasions. We were made to feel like we were confused guests who actually requested towels and wanted them put in our room despite the 'do not disturb sign' on the door. It was nonsense. I would recommend to never leave valuables in a hotel room. The front desk employee by the name of Z-- was very "dry" with us and could use a little encouragement to smile and be more hospitable. The valet staff was tremendously friendly and helped us feel like we were on vacation. Next time we will probably opt for another hotel closer to the festivities. Holiday Inn is close by and headed in the right direction towards the restaurant zone while also being on the Riverwalk. If the beds weren't so sunken in at Embassy Suites, I would have rated this hotel higher. Also, the 'fake eggs' were awful, so we skipped the free breakfast.

Rooms are outdated and full of dust. I had to request multiple times to get trash bin liners replaced at the front desk. There was no toilet paper in the room. Evening reception had no snacks and even the breakfast had limited options.

I stayed for the weekend and for 2 nights I got bitten by ants while I slept on the sofa. I talked to the manager Antoine and he said he'd get back to me on that and 4 days later, no response. Everything else was good. Breakfast and happy hour are always a treat.
