Historic hotel on San Antonio's Riverwalk

Centrally located on the banks of San Antonio’s RiverWalk the Hilton Palacio del Rio is the perfect base for your San Antonio adventure.

You’ll have a choice of dining options at the Hilton from Durty Nelly’s Irish Pub offering a selection of classic American and Irish dishes and nightly sing-a-longs to the River’s Edge Café and Patio which offer a South Texas inspired cuisine overlooking the RiverWalk.

However if you require even more variety there are a range of restaurants and bars within walking distance of the hotel. Unwind by the outdoor pool or enjoy a workout in the hotel’s fitness centre.

After a busy day of exploring San Antonio’s highlights such as the historic Alamo and the beautiful Mission Reach retire to the serene oasis of your guest room with its locally themed Spanish décor and relax on the balcony as you take in your view of the river or the city.

  • Great downtown location by San Antonio’s RiverWalk
  • Enjoy the lively atmosphere in Durty Nelly’s
  • Take in the panoramic view from your balcony
  • Unwind in the rooftop swimming pool

Super friendly, helpful and tech savvy

Beautiful location at the end of the River Walk in San Antonio, super helpful! They have a touch pad system for their elevators and on of the hosts kindly showed me how to use it. All their employees from their caterers, to their maintenance staff were willing to help at anytime. The rooms were comfortable, clean and provided everything you needed.

Beautiful hotel,excellent location

I recently spent three days here. There was not one thing I did not like about this hotel. The location was perfect, right on the Riverwalk , which is where this picture was taken. The beds were very comfortable and everything was clean. The food was superb. The staff was extremely helpful and friendly. Absolutely five stars.
