September 3, 2023


This is my Hampton Inn & Suites San Antonio Riverwalk Texas review, one of the top-rated hotels in Downtown San Antonio, Texas. If you're planning a trip to San Antonio and want to stay in a hotel that offers modern amenities, a central location, and affordable prices, then the Hampton Inn & Suites San Antonio Riverwalk is the perfect choice for you.

Hampton Inn & Suites San Antonio Riverwalk Texas Review

Whether you're traveling for business or leisure, this hotel has everything you need for a comfortable and convenient stay. As in my other hotel reviews, I'll provide you with an in-depth analysis of the hotel's features, amenities, and services, so you can make an informed decision and enjoy your stay in the city to the fullest.

Location: Conveniently Located Near Top Attractions

The Hampton Inn & Suites San Antonio Riverwalk is located in the heart of downtown San Antonio, just steps away from the famous River Walk, a network of walkways with shops, bars, and restaurants along the San Antonio River. 

Steeped in rich Texas history, the Hampton Inn & Suites San Antonio Riverwalk hotel is within walking distance or a short riverboat ride from major downtown attractions.

The Alamo, the 18th century San Fernando Cathedral, Historic Market Square, and La Villita Historic Arts Village are within a short distance.This location means that guests can easily walk to nearby attractions such as the San Antonio Majestic Theater, and the San Antonio Zoo.

The hotel is also within walking distance of the San Antonio station, which made it easy for me to explore other parts of the city. It's a 12-minute walk to Market Square, the largest Mexican market in the U.S.

This area is a distance from the mall and convention center - but it was still close enough for convenience (no need to use the car).

Hampton Inn amenities

Accommodations: Suites with Roll-In Showers and River Views

The San Antonio Hampton Inn hotel boasts modern rooms and suites that are equipped with all the amenities I needed for a comfortable stay.

All rooms include free in room WiFi, air conditioning, and a private bathroom. Some rooms offer a river view, and select suites even have roll-in showers for wheelchair accessibility.

Property Amenities: Outdoor Pool, Fitness Center, and Business Center

I quite enjoyed a dip in the sun loungers outdoor pool, and working out in the modern fitness area. The hotel also has a business center for those who need to catch up on work during their stay, though staying at the Candlewood Suites San Antonio Lackland AFB Area could be another good option if visiting the army base is the only reason for your trip.

Free Hot Breakfast and To-Go Breakfast

Hotel's breakfast is one of my favorites. At this hotel, they strive to provide guests with a comfortable and convenient stay. That's why they offer a variety of breakfast options to suit your needs, which is not the case in every Downtown San Antonio hotel.

For those who prefer a hot breakfast, they provide a complimentary spread of delicious and nutritious options to fuel them up for the day ahead. From hearty eggs and bacon to fluffy pancakes and waffles, they have something for everyone.

On the other hand, they understand that some of the guests, like myself, may be in a hurry or have early morning appointments to attend to. That's why they also offer a free to-go breakfast that you can easily grab and enjoy on-the-go.

Their to-go breakfast options include freshly brewed coffee, fruit, yogurt, and pastries. No matter what my schedule or preference may be, they had me covered with breakfast offerings.

Final Words

If you are planninng to stay in this hotel you should pay attention not to mistake Hampton Inn & Suites San Antonio Riverwalk for the Hampton Inn San Antonio Downtown. The difference lies in their direct access to the San Antonio River Walk. 

If staying along the River Walk and enjoying its scenic beauty is a priority for your visit, the Hampton Inn & Suites San Antonio Riverwalk is likely the better choice. However, if you prefer a downtown location with access to various attractions and don't necessarily need River Walk access from your hotel, the Hampton Inn San Antonio Downtown or the more budget-friendly La Hacienda Inn could also be suitable options.

Overall, the Hampton Inn & Suites San Antonio Riverwalk is a great choice for those looking for a comfortable and convenient stay in downtown.

The hotel's location, modern amenities, and affordable prices make it a top pick for travelers. San Antonio International Airport (SAT) is a 16 minute drive.

Just keep in mind that only valet parking is available, and there is a cash required at check-in for incidentals.
