"2 Blocks or less to Everything"
Great location for business at Henry Gonzales Convention Center. Also provides easy access to all the amenities of the Riverwalk. Small 17 units.Genuine Expedia guest review
A great place to stay! Staff was very personable and accommodating! Location was awesome, right in the middle of the San Antonio Riverwalk. Will definitely stay there again!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Great place to stay!"
I stayed here on business. I was surprised to find this to be very quaint. Only 17 rooms in the Inn. Felt very comfortable, clean, and staff was awesome! Complimentary wine in the evening, continental breakfast in the am. Right in the middle if town. Stone's throw from the riverwalk. Definitely would come back.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Good location but NOISY!"
It was a good location and had good amenities, but was very, very noisy up until 2 a.m.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Great Romantic Getaway"
Excellent staff, beautiful antiques, truly a historical hotel. Loved our stay.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Great Old Hotel, Excellent Location"
The style and layout of the hotel was unique and interesting. The location could not have been better - right next to the Riverwalk and the Alamo. The nice amenities included breakfast, afternoon cookies and glass of wine. I would definitely recomment this hotel to my friends.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Convenient location to the RiverWalk"
Beautiful hotel with a lot of history. Loved the special touches of the beta fish in each room, cookies in the afternoon and wine at night. The staff was very helpful in giving us directions and recommendations. Felt like we were a part of San Antonio's history by staying at the hotel.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Wonderful historic San Antonio hotel"
This is a great historic hotel in a very convenient downtown location. I really liked my stay here. A couple of issues - there is no onsite parking. The parking garage a block away only charges $12 for 24 hours so it is reasonable. The second issue is this hotel is on a busy street and the rooms are noisy. I thought the stay was worth the noise but […] some may find this too much. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
We enjoyed our stay.The Innkeeper was helpful;the room was comfortable and clean. However we will not be returning, the noise from the street was distracting and the parking,loading,unloading and accessibility of your was car were a problem. There is no parking except at the city garage about a block away making me uncomfortable for night coming and […] going. We had to use a cab for a late dinner because I didn't feel safe with the garage arrangement. There is also no parking in front for loading and unloading or anyone to help you .

Very pleasant and clean, with unique character. The immediate neighborhood could be a deterrent for some folks, but one block away is the conference center and river walk.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"close to tourist sights and public transportation"
Riverwalk Vista was just as advertised. A quaint boutique hotel located within easy walking distance to the riverwalk, Alamo,Rivercenter mall, La Villita, Convention Center and many restaurants and shops. The main trolly station is a block away as well as the main city bus station. The visitor center is about a block away and has many friendly helpful […] people working there. Actually we found helpful friendly people everywhere from the hotel to the "Amigos" on the street to the trolley and bus drivers. The hotel's managers were all very friendly and helpful as well. The atmosphere was very relaxed. The breakfast was average but there was something for everyone. Lots of teas available and always reg. and decafe coffee available.There are sitting areas on both the 2nd and third floors. The location and laidback atmosphere of the hotel was exactly what we were looking for. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Historical and convenient"
Location to the Riverwalk and Convention Center was very convenient. Breakfast was great! Security and historic ambience of the hotel was great.Genuine Expedia guest review
Very comfortable and a great location for the Riverwalk, Alamo and other things I wanted to see. I could have done without the fish. He gave me the creeps. Bed was extremely comfortable.Genuine Expedia guest review
"home away from home"
Welcomed change to the chain hotels in the area. The inn keeper was very friendly and she checked me in right in the room. The room comes with a pet fish to keep you company, a rubber ducky in your shower and a nice reading area with a very comfortable leather chair and foot stool. The water in the fridge is free! I was worried about having to work […] on a dial up connection but I was able to pick up the wifi at McD's located beneath the hotel. There's a continental breakfast every morning and cookies and wine in the evening. I really enjoyed the various sitting areas so I could get out of my room. Riverwalk is right across the street and the convention center is the next street down. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"We loved this place"
Let me start by saying my wife and I prefer smaller boutique style hotels and historic hotels even more. The Riverwalk Vista was a perfect fit. Let's start off with location, one block from the middle of the famed Riverwalk and one block from the historic Alamo. 50 yard line tickets in the 200 section, just perfect. The hotel itself is in a 150ish year […] old brick building, complete with original floors and windows. At every turn we were greeted by cozy public areas with comfy leather sofas and period antique furnishings. Our room was nicely sized, a nice worn leather chair in the corner begged to be lounged in. The bed was comfortable, the bathroom spacious with plenty of pressure and hot water in the slate tiled shower. The modern expectations of a large flat screen TV, a mini bar with reasonably priced soft drinks and an ipod dock alarm clock were also in the room. Evidently some people have trouble sleeping in an urban hotel setting so they also had a white noise generator. We used it one night but really didn't need to. Our room was on the second floor and with those giant windows you would think we would be subject to some street noise but we had no problems. Check in check out was smooth and the inn keeper very friendly. They provided a great little breakfast every morning, lemonade and cookies in the dining room all day. If we ever get back to San Antonio we will definitely stay here again. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"A Hidden Treasure"
What a hidden treasure! This charming hotel reflects the history of San Antonio. The elevator is decorated with an old photo of the surrounding city, years ago. Charming sitting area, daily breakfast, evening wine and cookies, coffee available all day long! This is not your typical chain hotel. Really a hidden jewel. The Riverwalk is just a few short […] steps from the front door. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
I was leery about staying here. I generally don't like old hotels and I generally don't care for B&B's. But, we decided to try something different and I couldn't have been more pleased. This hotel was well located. The room was large, clean, comfortable and really cool. The innkeepers couldn't have been nicer or more helpful. Goodbye Hyatt. Goodbye […] Marriott. Goodbye big chain hotels in San Antonio. Hello Riverwalk Vista! Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"One word... AMAZING"
I really loved this place. From its old world charm to its personal touches. The Riverwalk Vista was everything I hoped it would be for my anniversary stay. I would go there again in a heartbeat!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Hidden gem in the heart of downtown"
Charming boutique hotel conveniently located across from the riverwalk. Loved our quaint room with hardwood floors, high wood ceiling, ceiling fan and two large windows. Comfy bed and great walk-in glass shower with slate tile. Also loved the high quality towels that smelled fresh from the laundry! So nice to walk outside of your room in the morning […] for coffee and breakfast served in the small lobby. The yummy homemade hatch green chile quiche was an unexpected treat. Although our room was located on the street directly above a busy traffic circle, it was amazingly quiet and we never heard any outside noise-- thanks to the "white noise" air machine! The only negative we found was the parking issue... but the public garage wasn't that far away- so it didn't seem to be as big of a deal as what we had expected from reading other reviews. We have stayed in several nice hotels along the riverwalk during the many years that we have travelled to San Antonio...but this is our new favorite and we definitely plan to return! Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
We loved this hotel. If you love history, there is so much information about San Antonio just from the pictures displayed. The location to the Riverwalk couldn't have been any better. Even though we had to park across the street in a parking garage, that was no hassle. The view from our window was great. Staff was wonderful; thanks. On our next visit […] to San Antonio, we will definitely stay here again. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"a gem of a place!"
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay in the Hemisiphere Suite (each of the rooms has its own unique name). Can't understand why Hotels.com's rating is only 3-star for the Riverwalk Vista when the guest reviews are all so high. We were impressed by the warm cookies available just after check-in, the manager's reception with comp wine at 5:00, and the great […] breakfast the next morning. (Yes, it is way more than just your ordinary continental breakfast.) The only not-so-convenient part was no on-site parking. Had to pay $12 to overnight in the garage across the street and about a block from hotel. But we were able to unload and reload right in front of hotel, which was good. Oh yes, the bed was a little soft for our personal tastes, but it was "okay." Loved the big slate shower and rain shower head. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
It was a great location - so close to the Riverwalk and the Alamo. The staff was very accomodating - sending George to our room for a 5 AM wakeup knock! They had great suggestions for restaurants etc. The atmosphere was great and very clean. Thanks, Riverwalk Vista! Charley and GlennaGenuine Expedia guest review
The hotel was great. Near the Riverwalk and Alamo, not your normal hotel feel, very spacious and comfortable.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"AMAZING. Best on the Riverwalk!!"
I would HIGHLY recommend this hotel. My husband and I stayed here and had probably the best experience ever- and we travel a lot. If you are looking for a chain, this hotel is not for you. If you are looking for a unique hotel with fabulous service, friendly innkeepers and top-notch extras, this is the place for you. The room was amazing- bed comfortable, […] bathroom amazing, small fridge with mini-bar, full desk (perfect for my computer), a white noise machine, and even a fish :) The main room was beautiful and historic and the extras were really appreciated. Fresh cookies in the afternoon with some of the best lemonade we've tasted...Wine in the evenings, and the best breakfast spread I've seen at any inn ever. Thank you, thank you, thank you! In addition to being amazing, this is by far the best place to stay on the riverwalk that is not only close to everything but right in the hubbub- close to restaurants, bars, shops, AND the closest you'll get to the Alamo. We will never stay ANYWHERE else but HERE!!!! :) Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Would stay here again"
Patty was awesome. She helped us with our luggage and was a good reference as far as restaurant choices. The hotel was comfortable and the showers were large so you isn't feel cramped. The room had a nice view and let in plenty of sunlight. The AC blocked out a lot of the outside noise. The breakfast was great and there were many choices to choose from. […] If you don't like their breakfast there is a mcdonalds right next door. You are close to lots of restaurants and the Alamo so no need to drive. Overall we enjoyed our stay and we would definitely stay here again. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"A quiet retreat for the business traveler."
The Riverwalk Vista is not your typical cookie cutter chain hotel. If you are looking for the stiffness of a Marriott or Hilton than move past this hotel. The Riverwalk provides a boutique level experience that offers a tremendous amount of charm in the building, attention to details and a warm relaxing environment. While lacking conveniences of a gym, […] pool or restaraunt inside, it has things like a full breakfast each morning for guests, cookies at 3:00 and complimentary wine at 5:00 each evening. The rooms and decor are rustic and has an old world feel to it yet has all the modern conveniences. My room had a hardwood floor as did the entire 3rd floor where the common area for eating, drinking and relaxing was located. The staff were always accessible and able to assist. In the 3 days I was at the hotel, I think I saw guests walking around only a few times even though it was booked solid. It is quiet and inviting and I would stay there again for sure if coming through San Antonio. This is not a child friendly hotel however. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Our hotel of choice from now on!"
This is perfect for a couple that wants to stay close to the river walk action. Very quaint, historic bed and breakfast type hotel. Only drawback us you have to use public parking since hotel doesn't offer but it's about a block away so no biggie.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
""Great hotel for a couple's get-away vacation""
My girlfriend and I took a short vacation to San Antonio and heard about the Riverwalk Vista from a friend. It had a great, central location to the Riverwalk restaurants and to various tourist activities like the Mission trail, Ripley's Believe it or Not, etc. It was next to a trolley stop. The atmosphere in the Riverwalk Vista hotel was unique--romantic […] for couples or refrreshingly different for anyone else. We had a fishbowl in our room and a fuzzy doll on our bed to greet us in a nice surprise! The furniture was mostly wood and the dining area had a rustic, warm, cozy feel to it.

"Great Hotel, no parking"
Hotel was clean, awesome view, staff were very helpful. But do not park in the commercial zone outside like their website says, you will get a ticket. I had to pay $45 to park for a day and a half around the corner. Ouch.Genuine Expedia guest review
"What a great hotel!"
Beautiful renovation of historic building. High ceilings. Large windows with nice views. Spacious bathroom with big shower. Nicely decorated. Comfortable common spaces. Extremely convenient location three blocks from the Alamo and across the street from the Riverwalk. Fantastic breakfast spread (complimentary). Cookies in the afternoon. Wine happy hour […] (complimentary). Staff extremely helpful. All of this for a great price. Sign me up again the next time I'm in San Antonio! Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

"Really nice hotel with a GREAT location"
Very clean rooms, friendly and helpful staff, very good breakfast. The best thing though is the location. Steps from The Alamo. Steps from the Riverwalk. You can park your car just down the street and never have to use it until you leave. Thoroughly enjoyed our trip and this hotel.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
I loved the homey feel of the hotel. It felt more like being at home rather than your hotel.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Great hotel on the riverwalk!"
We stayed at the Riverwalk Vista during our visit to San Antonio and loved it! It has a great location as it is right acros the street from the Riverwalk. We had a great breakfast every morning and a quiet stay at night. A sound machine is included in your room to drown out the street noise, which never bothered us. We will definitely be staying there […] again!! Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

I booked this hotel because of the reviews, I usually don't do many reviews but we really enjoyed our stay. The hotel was intimate and cozy and yet offered everything we expect from a nice hotel.

Breakfast was delicious, cookies in the afternoon and complimentary wine at 6:00 pm. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Quaint - Comfy - Romantic"
Loved it!!! This is our second time staying at this hotel. I have been to many downtown hotels - but this one by far is the best -- even compared to the Grand Hyatt. No - they do not have fancy lobby OR an onsite spa, gym room, etc. that 5 star hotel offers. But what this place offers is a charm that no fancy hotels can offer. I loved the antique feel […] but still felt modern. It will be a little hard to find if you are new in town (just look for McDonalds - it's in the same block). As soon as you pass the hassle and bustle of the street - buzz the doorbell - and enter this charming place - you will be transported back in time - literally. The room is sooooo comfy - loved the sheets (feels and smells new). The restroom is sooooo clean - loved the shower. Can't rave enough about this place. Breakfast is awesome (they do not use plastic/styrofoam plates and utensils) - feels like eating at grandma's house. The only thing I do not like are the homeless people hanging around the street -- other than that, it is pretty safe. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
Fabulous views. The Hugman Suite is a corner room with 4 huge windows overlooking East Commerce and Lasoya streets. This includes the riverwalk, Torch of Friendship sculpture, and the Tower of the America. The riverwalk is within walking distance, as well as The Alamo. The hotel is cozy and romantic. Only 16 rooms. Service can't be beat. Food is simple […] and comforting. Love the 3:00 snack withb everages and breakfast. If you book this hotel, be sure to call them about additional packages.

Great Boutique Hotel, walking distance to most downtown venues. Spacious rooms, quality breakfast with cookies and wine available in the afternoons. Only disappointment, wifi is mostly non existent.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Fantastic Place for Couples in San Antonio!"
We absolutely loved our stay at the Riverwalk. The location could not have been more convenient to area attractions. The Alamo is just around the corner and the Riverwalk is right outside the door! The Torch of Friendship was literally right outside our window. Breakfast each morning was delicious and the hospitality was above and beyond all expectations. […] As for the room itself, it was quaint with hardwood floors, sky-high ceilings, giant windows, and exposed brick walls. Adorable! Loved the historic charm of the place. Would stay here again without a doubt. Side note: if you are averse to street noise, the location is inherently noisy, given the proximity to the Riverwalk and big city traffic. Simply bring ear plugs or use the white noise machine provided. Not sure if this place would be a good fit for families or business travelers, but it's perfect for couples.

"Would return in a heartbeat!!!"
The Inn and the staff were fantastic! I've never been so relaxed!!! They take care of any request small or large and the breakfast and cookies and wine at night are such a treat! The Inn is comfortable and quiet inside, but we had some street noise the last few nights that woke us up a few times. Overall a great place that is close to everything!Genuine Expedia guest review
"Riverwalk Vista Hotel"
This was a wonderful alternative to the large chain hotels on the Riverwalk. The staff was awesome and the historic building was very well maintained.

"An unexpected delight!"
This hotel is listed in the Historical Hotels of America which I didn't know at the time of my booking. It is in a very convenient location by the riverwalk and parks. The building has a unique charm with its wooden floors, 14 ft. ceilings, long windows, quilts on the walls, leather and wooden furniture and a very homey feel. We loved the slate shower, […] large bathroom and the bathrobes are a nice touch. They put out lemonade, cookies, fruit and wine in the afternoon. The breakfast was delicious too.

This hotel is so much more than the large chain hotels. From check in (greeted as Mr. and Mrs.) to the amazing views from the large windows, to the bed and wonderful pillows...we were very pleased! The hotel's breakfasts, snack hours, and evening wine hours are a nice little addition to a relaxing and romantic hotel. It is a short walk across the street […] to the Riverwalk. Some of the best hotels and bars are right there by the hotel. If you enjoy a nice cigar, you must go to Swig Martini Bar that is just a short walk from the hotel! Amazing! We will NEVER stay anywhere ELSE! The Riverwalk Vista Inn is the best hotel in the area! Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
