The famous San Antonio Riverwalk (also known as the Paseo del Rio) is a network of trails along the San Antonio River which allows you to walk through much of downtown San Antonio along a scenic river path lined with restaurants, eclectic shops, and lively bars. There are several San Antonio hotels on the Riverwalk which allow immediate access to these pleasant trails, and many of the city’s main attractions can be reached on foot using these interesting walkways.
As the Riverwalk is so extensive in the downtown area, there are many hotels in downtown San Antonio near the Riverwalk which are not actually ‘on’ the Riverwalk, but the short distance you have to walk to access the river trails is negligible for most people.
Here is a selection of San Antonio Riverwalk hotels, most of which are located directly on the Riverwalk:
