San Antonio attracts many visitors because of its historical and tourist sites. But one of its most popular attractions is the San Antonio Riverwalk. Full of energy and lively nightlife, there are a number of luxury hotels right on the river. We’ll show you properties with indoor pools, classy onsite dining, and views of the Riverwalk. Many hotels have balcony rooms, suitable for couples, families, and even pets. To make your travel planning easier, here are the best San Antonio Hotels on the Riverwalk.

Riverwalk Suites with Balconies

  • Mokara Hotel & Spa – Mokara Hotel & Spa offers three rooms with balconies – Suite Riverwalk, Luxury Spa, and Premier Riverview. The Suite has extra space with a living room, but all three options have great views of the Riverwalk.
  • Canopy By Hilton San Antonio RiverwalkThe King One Bed Suites offer a walk-out balcony with Riverwalk and city views. It’s a great spot to enjoy your morning coffee while taking in the sights of San Antonio.
  • Omni La Mansion del Rio – The Presidential Suite features two balconies overlooking the Riverwalk and the San Antonio skyline. Guests love it for its other options too, including a large soaking tub and a dry sauna.

Best Riverwalk Suites for Families

  • San Antonio Marriott Rivercenter – Have a look at The Junior Suite which is big enough for a family of 5. The hotel is close to shops, restaurants, and popular attractions, so it’s easy for everyone to get around.
  • Grand Hyatt San Antonio River Walk – Grand Hyatt’s Gamer Suite is ideal for families with kids. It’s a large suite with video games, arcade games, and a Foosball table. If you don’t want to spend too much, their Double Rooms are good options too.

Best Riverwalk Suites for Couples

  • Mokara Hotel & Spa – The Suite Riverwalk is perfect for couples. A private balcony offers romantic views of the Riverwalk and the city. Couples who have stayed here before raved about the suite’s spa bath. Facilities like the rooftop pool and spa add to the romantic stay.
  • Omni La Mansion del Rio – It’s twice the size of other suites, so you would think the Presidential Suite is too big for couples, but we don’t agree. It’s the ultimate romantic getaway, but it does come with a big price tag.

Other Hotel Services to Consider

  • River Views – For the best restaurant with river views, Hotel Contessa’s Ambler Restaurant on the riverfront is highly recommended. We found some great rooms with river views too, especially from Westin’s River Side Suites.
  • Parking – Unfortunately, none of the hotels offer free onsite parking. Hyatt Regency had the best parking option, offering a $38 USD per day self-parking fee with unlimited in and out privileges.
  • Breakfast – The best breakfast options are at the Hyatt Regency and the Grand Hyatt. Hyatt Regency offers a package that includes a buffet breakfast for two. At Grand Hyatt, Grand Club members receive a free continental breakfast.
  • Pools – Most of the hotels have outdoor pools, but the rooftop pools at Mokora Hotel and Hyatt Regency really stood out. Also, the San Antonio Marriott Riverwalk features a stunning glass-enclosed indoor pool as well as an outdoor pool.
  • Airport Shuttle – Most hotels near the Riverwalk don’t offer free airport shuttles or transfers. It’s best to use taxis, Lyft, or Uber.

Most Affordable Riverwalk Hotels

  • Hotel Contessa – Suites on the RiverwalkHotel Contessa is an excellent option for travelers on a budget looking for a suite on San Antonio’s Riverwalk. The City View Suites are surprisingly affordable in some months, particularly during winter. The weather might be a little chilly, but these comfortable suites are sometimes under $200 USD per night.
  • Hilton Palacio del RioHilton Palacio del Rio is quite popular with travelers due to its Riverwalk location and affordable rates. At time, the King Rooms could be as low as $164 USD per night.
