I can't say enough about the Riverwalk Vista. The attention to detail and the service by the staff was first rate. If you are looking for a coldly impersonal high rise hotel, don't bother. If you are looking for an adventure along the San Antonio Riverwalk while staying in an historic inn full of antiques, historic pictures and a signature aroma and service, this is the place. Great folks!
The location for this hotel can't be beat. It's in the center of the best part of the Riverwalk and downtown and everything is an easy walk away. The hotel has just gone through a remodel and they did a fantastic job. The new elevators are ahead of their time (you'll have to stay there to see why!). And the hotel staff was friendly, efficient and really went out of their way to make our stay enjoyable (there was a mixup that was purely my fault that they corrected without hesitation). The riverwalk is gorgeous during the holidays!
We were in San Antonio for an early anniversary trip, and we usually stay at the Crockett because it is at the back gate of the Alamo and across the street from the Rivercenter Mall. December is always a fun time in San Antonio. The Crockett public areas were decorated for the holidays. Staff were all friendly.
It was a very comfortable suite, more like a small apartment. Hotel was nicely decorated for the holidays. We really enjoyed the tapas in the lower lounge area. It was very restful.
Riverwalk was brightly lit for Christmas, including luminaries along the path.
