Hilton Palacio sits on the River Walk in downtown San Antonio. Each room at the hotel has a private balcony, a plasma television, high-speed Internet access and comfy bedding. Suites offer more space, sitting areas with sleeper sofas and granite wet bars. An outdoor swimming pool and whirlpool spa is at the hotel. Guests can watch the downtown cityscape from a garden terrace. Ibiza is a Mediterranean-style restaurant with a patio that sits right on the river. Durty Nelly’s Irish Bar offers a friendly atmosphere with sing-a-longs and never-ending peanut supplies. For fun, families can walk two blocks to the Alamo, see what’s happening at the convention center or visit HemisFair Park.

Driving in can be confusing since there is no parking offered at the hotel. The driveway becomes overcrowded. Valet service accidentally took our car to a garage 15 minutes away while we were unloading and checking in. Very little guidance given for the car. Otherwise the rest of our experience was great and the staff did not charge for the valet mistake.
Stiff bed and spider webs on lamps, just dusty all around. The location was great. The pool is tiny and not heated. If you plan on using the valet it's 44 a night plus tax, it's a bit ridiculous if you ask me. Lol
