    1 mile to city center
    TripAdvisor Traveler Rating 4.5 based on 836 reviewsTripAdvisor (836)

To unwind, guests can linger in one of the two on-site lounges, including the St. Anthony Club. If you're looking for more sustenance, you can grab breakfast at Gallery On the Park, or sit down at the upscale guest favorite, ReBelle, for dinner.

    Like the Hyatt Regency Hill Country Resort and Spa, this JW Marriott property is a hit with families. The expansive property has fairways and spa treatments for the adults, and a lazy river and waterslides for the kids. Meanwhile, the resort offers a variety of rooms to suit groups of various sizes. Whichever accommodations you choose, you'll be surrounded by colorful decor, cozy furniture and views of the Texas Hill Country. According to guests, the staff always seems to be smiling and ready to assist, and with multiple restaurants to choose from, you certainly won't go hungry. The property is just a 21-mile drive north of downtown San Antonio, so spending a day touring the city's historical attractions is a cinch. The JW Marriott San Antonio Hill Country Resort & Spa is a member of the Marriott family, meaning that loyal guests can earn and redeem Marriott Bonvoy points here.

    Hilton Palacio Del Rio
    San Antonio, TX
    1.2 miles to city center
    TripAdvisor Traveler Rating 4.5 based on 3368 reviewsTripAdvisor (3368)
    Guests say that they are delighted by this Hilton's superb location along San Antonio's River Walk, providing easy access to nearby shops, restaurants and attractions. And while some are harder to please than others, most visitors praise the hotel's guest rooms, which feature signature Serenity beds and expansive windows with sprawling city views. Travelers especially liked having a private balcony, saying that it was fun to sit and people watch. But don't spend all your time just watching – get out and do. In additional to the River Walk, The Alamo and San Fernando Cathedral are both within walking distance. Or if you'd rather stick around, you can opt for a dip in the pool or a a drink in Tex's Riverwalk Sports Bar. When dinnertime rolls around, guests highly recommend The River's Edge Café and Patio for its tasty cuisine. But the prices of this recently renovated Hilton outpost don't go down quite as easily: Many visitors complained about having to pay steep fees for internet usage and parking. To save on stays, become a Hilton Honors member and earn rewards points every time you stay at a Hilton hotel.

    Hyatt Regency San Antonio Riverwalk
    San Antonio, TX
    1.1 miles to city center
    TripAdvisor Traveler Rating 4.5 based on 3752 reviewsTripAdvisor (3752)
    Both business and leisure guests can't stop raving about this Hyatt Regency's location (two blocks from The Alamo and right on the River Walk). Some visitors say that the rooms could use a facelift, while others found the signature beds to be cozy and the Wi-Fi access and iPod docking stations to be useful. Other highlights include the heated rooftop pool and the full-service DASA Spa on the River Walk, which provides facials and massages. After a day spent sightseeing (or rejuvenating), enjoy some saucy Barbecue at the swanky Q Kitchen or mingle over cocktails at Q Bar. Just one word of advice about staying here: Leave your car at home if you can. Parking here costs a pretty penny. Members of the Hyatt Gold Passport loyalty program can save a bit of dough by using points for free nights.

    Grand Hyatt San Antonio
    San Antonio, TX
    1.5 miles to city center
    TripAdvisor Traveler Rating 4.5 based on 4217 reviewsTripAdvisor (4217)
    Although the rooms are fairly standard at the Grand Hyatt San Antonio (spacious with all the necessary amenities), the location and customer service keep guests highly satisfied. The hotel is positioned in a quiet area just off San Antonio's iconic River Walk next door to the Henry B. Gonzalez Convention Center, making it a convenient home base for both business and leisure travelers. Previous visitors say they enjoyed spending time at this Hyatt's gym and outdoor lap pool. Others note that the hotel concierge is happy to arrange a tee time for you at one of the nearby golf courses. End your day with a hearty meal from Ruth's Chris Steak House and a cocktail at Bar Rojo. Because this is a Hyatt hotel, Hyatt Gold Passport loyalty club members can use points to pay for rooms or upgrades.

    San Antonio Marriott Riverwalk
    San Antonio, TX
    1.4 miles to city center
    TripAdvisor Traveler Rating 4 based on 1510 reviewsTripAdvisor (1510)
    This hotel makes a great home base for business travelers who plan on spending time at the nearby Henry B. Gonzalez Convention Center. And because it sits right on San Antonio'River Walk, sightseers will also find these digs to be convenient. While this member of the Marriott family may not look as nice on the outside as its sibling, the Marriott Plaza San Antonio, previous guests said that they received better service here. After working up an appetite taking in the nearby sites, chow down on Southwestern cuisine at the Cactus Flower Restaurant or just relax by the indoor-outdoor pool. Recent travelers appreciated the updated lobby and meeting areas, as well. Members of the Marriott Bonvoy program can earn or redeem points here.

    San Antonio Marriott Rivercenter
    San Antonio, TX
    1.5 miles to city center
    TripAdvisor Traveler Rating 4 based on 1911 reviewsTripAdvisor (1911)
    This property distinguishes itself from the several other Marriotts in the area by its sheer size. With more than 1,000 rooms, San Antonio Marriott Rivercenter is made to handle large crowds and is an ideal home base for family travelers and conventioneers. Despite the throngs of guests, recent visitors praise the hotel's employees for their friendly attitudes. Guests also appreciate the convenience of the hotel, which sits right on the River Walk and is just a short walk from other San Antonio attractions, like The Alamo. Still, don't expect too much personality from this giant: Guest rooms here are designed in standard Marriott style – with LCD TVs, large work desks and high-speed internet access (for a fee) – though Texan-esque blankets and leather reclining chairs are a nice touch. The property also features a fully equipped health club and a stylish indoor-outdoor pool, while the in-house restaurant, Sazo's, earns a thumbs-up for its Spanish and Latin flavors. And because of the hotel's family ties, Marriott Bonvoy members can use points for a free night's stay and other extra perks.

    Marriott Plaza San Antonio
    San Antonio, TX
    1.3 miles to city center
    TripAdvisor Traveler Rating 4 based on 896 reviewsTripAdvisor (896)
    Right off the bat, the Marriott Plaza San Antonio wins visitors over with the exotic birds that patrol its courtyard. Meanwhile, the hotel's exterior and lobby greet guests with an elegant Mexican-inspired design. While recent guests enjoyed the hotel grounds, many reported having an average experience. Some travelers have described the rooms here as run-of-the-mill Marriott –though that does mean you can expect to find a certain level of cleanliness, as well as high-end pillow-top beds and flat-screen LCD TVs. The property also offers a pool and the acclaimed Anaqua Restaurant & Grille, which serves up hearty portions of contemporary Texan fare. However, the main reason guests choose to stay here is the hotel's location, just a short walk from San Antonio attractions like the River Walk and The Alamo. And because this is a Marriott hotel, members of the Marriott Bonvoy program can use points to offset the cost of rooms.

    Sheraton Gunter Hotel San Antonio
    San Antonio, TX
    1 mile to city center
    TripAdvisor Traveler Rating 4 based on 1019 reviewsTripAdvisor (1019)
    The Sheraton Gunter Hotel inhabits a historical building that still exudes turn-of-the-century charm. Guests appreciate the 20th-century ambiance and charming memorabilia in the hotel's common spaces. The simple rooms, however, don't always give off a high-end vibe. Recent guests express mixed feelings on the accommodations: Some were wowed by the views and were very comfortable in the signature Sweet Sleeper beds, while others describe the rooms as small and the decor as dated. The hotel's location is consistently a big hit, though, with sightseers appreciating the Gunter's proximity to sites like the River Walk, The Alamo and San Fernando Cathedral. The heated pool and fitness center also earned praise from travelers, as does the in-house restaurant. Because this is a Sheraton property, Starwood Preferred Guest members can earn and redeem rewards points here.

    Hotel Emma
    San Antonio, TX
    1.8 miles to city center
    TripAdvisor Traveler Rating 5 based on 2883 reviewsTripAdvisor (2883)
    Free Parking
    Hotel Emma stands out among travelers for its cool culture. This is largely brought on by the hotel's history as a former brewery. In 1916, Pearl's Brewhouse became the largest brewery in Texas, and although its heyday has come and gone, many of the Pearl's original architectural features are still intact. Visitors marvel at the refined industrial elements featured throughout – particularly in the lobby – and are equally impressed with the quality of the accommodations. Guests report rooms to be exceptionally styled and comfortable, thanks to amenities like 48-inch flat-screen TVs, beds with Frette linens and luxury bathrobes. And food is just as much of a staple here as beer used to be. Foodies can take advantage of the on-site concierge for recommendations in the area, or they can grab some house-butchered meats at Larder, enjoy small plates at Sternewirth or sample the farm-to-table fare at Supper. There is also a rooftop pool, a fitness center, a library and a gift shop on-site. Service consistently wows lodgers, as does the hotel's location just 2 miles north of downtown San Antonio.
