“Great hotel right off the Riverwalk”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 16 December 2013

We stayed here a couple of months ago and we really liked this hotel. Parking was convenient in a lot right across from the hotel, an important factor as parking is sparse in the larger cities in general. Lobby was nice with the bar in the background leading out to an outside patio with a good amount of seating. They had happy hours daily with great specials as well. To the right of the outside seating for the bar was a smaller pool where some families were having fun. There was also a coffee shop deli off the lobby convenient for coffee & sandwiches/muffins in the morning. The guest rooms were oversized and very clean with a modern look with small kitchenettes etc. and large comfortable beds. Personally I don't care for a kitchenette in my hotel room (sometimes they attracts larger families squeezed into one room) but the fridge & extra seating was nice. This was also a hotel where a good amount of business travelers stayed; we spoke to some of them so a mix of different guests which was nice. Lastly what we really loved about this hotel is that you can pick up the water taxi right below, they have their own water taxi stop and you can also see the river from many of the hotel rooms. The ride to the restaurant area was about 10 min with the water taxi so other hotels down the river were closer for sure but again with the parking and oversized rooms, bar etc. we felt this was a good choice for our purpose of stay.

Room Tip: All the rooms are nice just different views.

Loved the Keurig in my room and the unique and contemporary décor. Bathrooms were great! I had a beautiful room overlooking the back patio and river. Room service food and dining in the restaurant were great, menu fresh and represented some great local cuisine. Very good and convenient grab-n-go offerings in the restaurant for after hours which was perfect when we got in late at night. Loved this hotel and the friendly staff!

Room Tip: Really enjoyed the room overlooking the river walk. You can walk along the river all the way throug...

This was my first visit to San Antonio and my first experience staying at the Hotel Indigo anywhere. My compliments to Alex who made check in a breeze even though we needed two rooms, but only had reservations showing for 1. The complimentary drinks and breakfast was appreicated, but the "All American" breakfast leaves much to be desired. The bartender treated us very well. The weather was cold, but I still enjoyed the river taxi ride down to the restaurant area.

The room was huge and warm. The only issue I have is with the clock radio showing the incorrect time and not being able to reset it. I have seen radios before that are supposed to be self setting. Only thing is, they do no self set.

The location and accomodations make this a superb hotel, however, the staff made the experience even more special. Amy and David at the front desk made check in nearly effortless. Their welcoming spirit was what I needed after driving six hours. Patrick, Mikayla, and Francisco in the restaurant made me and my family feel as if we were VIP guests. I'm definitely going to spread the word about Hotel Indigo in San Antonio.

Room Tip: All of the rooms are spacious. Ask for an upgrade so your room overlooks the River Walk.

Indeed it is a vibrantly coloured hotel but it is an average hotel. Yes it is on the Riverwalk but quite a long way from the restaurants. Our room did face the river and a construction site as well so sitting out on the balcony was unpleasant. The table out on the balcony was torn and unsightly, the roof leaked and the paneling along the edge was cracked and torn. Not a pretty sight at all. The room was clean with clean linens and towels and housekeeping did a good job of cleaning it.
There is not much else going for this hotel.

Room Tip: Avoid rooms 327,329,328 - they face the construction and noise.

I especially like the southwestern style art and decor. I also like that I can easily park my car across the street and I'm only about a block from the river walk. My room was fresh and clean, linens clean, I had a great view of the river walk, and a living room area and kitchen. They have a nice bar area and an outdoor patio area for having drinks. Breakfast is made to order and I had delicious breakfast tacos and juice. A great deal and a great experience.

Room Tip: Upstairs with river view
