Fodor's Review

One of a crop of new boutique hotels on the river, Hotel Valencia's puffed pillows for Hollywood big names like American Idol's Ryan Seacrest, Paula Abdul, and Simon Cowell. From floor to ceiling, the decor is a modern take on traditional, mixing design elements such as Spanish archways and columns with leather headboards, polished concrete posts, and sleek dark-wood furniture. Rooms have custom-designed beds, imported designer linens, and faux mink throws; all rooms have a big leaning mirror and a flat-screen television. Balcony rooms overlook the lushly landscaped banks of the River Walk. The restaurant, Citrus, is highly acclaimed.

Long time customer

We're from San Antonio and have stayed at Valencia off/on since their first week. While the hotel can be dark and the valet is now $29, if you're a couple with no children in tow looking for a romantic weekend, the Valencia is the place to stay. Service is superb.

A Texas Treat

We stayed at the Hotel Valencia last week and were very happy with the hotel, room, service and location. The entry from the street is minimalistic to say the least. The lobby on the second floor is chic and the rooms are very clean and very comfortable. We stayed in a room on the fourth floor overlooking the Riverwalk with french doors to a small step out balcony. Very pretty setting. The rooms below us had larger balconies, each with a bistro table

and 2 chairs. Traffic noise, as well as people noise from the hotel restaurant below, can be heard at times but when we closed the french doors it was quiet. We didn't use the gym or eat at the restaurant. I would definitely stay at The Valencia again. I highly recommend the rooms with balconies overlooking the Riverwalk for ambiance or the Courtyard for quiet.
