A pair of mega-hotels in an excellent location.
Standing shoulder to shoulder, this complex of two separate hotels offers numerous options for downtown visitors. The 38-story Marriott Rivercenter towers over the River Walk and dominates the San Antonio skyline alongside its older sister, the 30-story Marriott Riverwalk. Both are situated across the street from the Henry B. Gonzalez Convention Center and within walking distance of HemisFair Park and the Alamo. A central location makes this smoke-free property especially inviting to conventioneers traveling with family members --- the property opens onto the Rivercenter Mall, as well as the River Walk. Updates in 2010 included the lobby (renovated seating area with a big-screen TV) and The Bar, which offers light lunch fare. On-site restaurant Sazo's serves American cuisine at breakfast, lunch and dinner. Because of its expansive meeting facilities (63 meeting rooms and a Grand Ballroom totaling 63,000 square feet) and selection of accommodations designed specifically for business travelers, this 1,000-room complex is a favorite with corporate guests. Among exec-friendly features are high-speed Internet access, weekday newspaper delivery and a rental car desk. Wi-Fi is complimentary in the lobby and public areas. Pets are not allowed.
