This 30-story high-rise hotel towers over the beautiful River Walk in San Antonio. Across the street lay the Rivercenter Mall and the convention center. Families will want to check out the Alamo historic site — a short, three-block walk. Can’t beat the location! More than 500 guestrooms display balconies that overlook the river or the cityscape. Spacious rooms are equipped with premium cable and LCD high-definition televisions, high-speed Internet (for a fee) and cribs on request. Decors are inviting and calming with warm, neutral tones and rich, cherry wood accents. If your room faces the river, step out on your balcony for a beautiful evening sunset. A small number of suites feature larger spaces with sitting areas and multiple rooms. For fun, a sundeck holds an indoor/outdoor pool that will break up the touristy site-seeing for kids. Cactus Flower Restaurant serves traditional Southwestern fare, complete with Mexican creations for each meal. A festive atmosphere displays gold accents and chic designs. A Starbucks is also at the Marriott. Outside, a garden terrace with an ancient Spanish Oak leads to the River Walk.

The Marriott Riverwalk is a great location right across the streets from the convention center. East access to the San Antonio river walk, restaurants and shops. So really close to everything. Good business hotel with a club lounge. Nichelle Smaller was really great. She made the checking and check out process go really smoothly. Definitely a great staff member of the Marriott team.

Perfectly fine Marriott property. Location is between convention center and shops. Close to everything. Walk to riverwalk venues. Rooms are what you would expect and it is clean. Actual starbucks in the lobby.
