Historical Traveller Reviews of San Antonio Riverwalk Drury Inn & Suites Hotel
Loved the Riverwalk!from A TripAdvisor Member
Not worth it...will pick somewhere else next time.from miselainis
I booked on Expedia and got the room for around $200. I wish now I'd looked harder!
The lobby and private areas were pleasant enough, and my husband enjoyed our complimentary high speed internet, but the room was a real disappointment, lookswise. I guess I figured that since it was on the Riverwalk, the quality would be a little nicer. It looked like a Motel 6 quality room- brown plaid sofa and cheap looking furniture.
I guess I'm spoiled, but for $200 a night I was expecting more. Where I had pictured French doors and large windows leading to the balcony (a la the Mansion del Rio), there was a heavy metal door. The room was very dark and the arrangement was strange. I guess it was a feng shui thing; it just made me uncomfortable.
The other reviewer who complained about the parking was correct. We had no trouble our first day and night there. The next night, we had an event in far northwest San Antonio and did not get in until after 11. Every spot in the parking garage was full. We were forced to park our car in the area outside the registration desk that night. Fortunately, the car was not broken into. I felt bad for anyone arriving any later than we did. I'm not sure what they might have had to do for parking.
We did not try the breakfast buffet. The coffeehouse "Sip" a few doors down makes an excellent latte and decent panini sandwiches. Plus some yummy sweets.
The location for this hotel is great, but when I saw the notation on the back of the door that the regular rate for our room was $339 a night, I about had a heart attack. I would rather have spent a little more for a luxury spot on the Riverwalk, or a little less away from the Riverwalk.
This spot may be great for families, but if you're a couple looking for an affordable yet romantic getaway, I'd look elsewhere.
Great time at the Drury Inn Riverwalkfrom MelBay
At the quiet end of the Riverwalkfrom A TripAdvisor Member
t beat it with a big stickfrom teaforme
We found the kitchenette to be a great feature, especially the under-counter fridge - perfect for keeping some drinks to enjoy on the balcony after long days of sight-seeing. We had two 25-inch TVs (living room & bedroom)with cable (around 100 channels incl. HBO).
On the seventh floor there is a small room with a couple of self-service washers and dryers (only $1 to run each) and a machine which vends laundry soap. Very convenient for those of us who like to travel light when flying. An iron and full-sized ironing board were in the bedroom closet.
As someone else mentioned, we appreciated the security precautions throughout the hotel. The location is perfect, too. No need to rent a car. All of the sights and shopping are within 3 or 4 blocks in either direction from the hotel, and from the hotel's lower level you step right out onto the Riverwalk.
The hotel staff impressed the heck out of us. They were all very kind, friendly and conscientious. Several times we happened to ride elevators with staff members or see them in the hallways. They unfailingly asked how we were enjoying our stay, if there was anything we needed, if everything was ok with our room, etc.
When I return to San Antonio I wouldn't think of staying anywhere else.
Great Suites, Perfect Location!!!from BJMama

Very Nice hotel, very nice price, very nice employeesfrom A TripAdvisor Member
Two Major Problemsfrom DSchmidtNekoosa_Wi
First of all let me say the staff was excellent, very friendly and knowlegeable. When we arrived they gave us a non-smoking room on the 7th floor, when we opened the door there was a distinct odor of smoke. We called the front desk and they immediately gave us another non-smoking room on the 6th floor. This room also had a odor of cigarette smoke but we contibuted it to a poor ventilation system and decided it wouldn't be any better regardless of which non-smoking room we had. The other problem we had was that the walls in this hotel are paper thin and one can hear everything that's said in the next room. Not a muffle like sound but just like they are in same room as you. We had a young child in the room next to us who cried until 2AM the next morning, we finally resorted to leaving the TV on to drown out the noise. The location is excellent and the hotel is beautifully restored but these two problems will keep us from recommending this hotel to others.

Top Local Tips for San Antonio
riverwalk dining most of our meals were mediocre to bad> i would suggest leaving the riverwalk for meals if possible
Too many things to do! Try and plan out the attractions you mant to see before you go if possible. Go to sanantoniocvb.com There are a lot of things to do and see. The riverwalk is beautiful.
Aztec on the River very over rated....save your ten dollars on this one! Boring movie about volcanoes of the deep sea.
