Overview

Award-winning restaurant and outdoor pool
Some guests said that rooms could use an update

This historical property has seen the evolution of the River Walk and, more importantly, has kept up with it. Originally built in 1852 as a school, the shell of this Omni has enjoyed a prime downtown location for more than a century. Aside from the locale, visitors also appreciate the ambiance, praising the exposed-beam ceilings and bright-red decorative accents in the rooms. However, some feel that for the high price they're paying, their rooms could be updated. But the Omni La Mansión del Rio makes up for its old rooms with ample amenities: While here, spend some time by the pool or at the spa (located in the Mokara Hotel & Spa across the river), or get out and about in San Antonio on an Omni-organized history tour. Some guests weren't pleased with the River Walk noise and expensive parking, but gave high marks to the cuisine served at the award-winning Las Canarias restaurant. But for most, it's the hotel's friendly staff that truly makes staying here a pleasure. And if you're a member of the Omni Select Guest rewards program, you can spend the night in this popular hotel using points. What's more, members of the rewards program get free Wi-Fi access.
