Quiet Inn on the San Antonio River Walk

Inn on the Riverwalk is located at the end of a quiet cul-de-sac overlooking the San Antonio River Walk, a network of pedestrian-friendly walkways through the heart of downtown San Antonio. Listed in the book 1,000 Places to See Before You Die, the river walk draws millions of visitors each year and is one of Texas’s most popular attractions. The tree-lined Inn on the Riverwalk puts its guests far enough from the river’s main tourism spot to feel private and secluded, but close enough for easy access. The riverside’s charming restaurants, shops, and bars are all within a 5- to 10-minute walk.

The inn is made up of three guesthouses: the main inn; a three-story Victorian home that dates back to 1916; and two smaller, Craftsman-style homes. Each individually decorated guest room looks out onto gorgeous views of the river walk, and many have been decorated with artwork from innkeeper/abstract artist Johanna Gardner.

Each morning, chefs serve a hot breakfast in the dining room of the main inn. The menu changes daily, but may include chorizo, hash browns, and fluffy pancakes. Grab a seat on the outdoor terrace to dine amid views of the San Antonio River.

San Antonio, Texas: Historic Missions near Picturesque River Walk

In the late 1920s, architect Robert H. H. Hugman designed an urban park around the San Antonio River—a space he envisioned as an American version of Venice, where people could shop and dine along the waterfront. Completed in 1941, the 2.5-mile river walk still serves as a vital artery in the heart of San Antonio as it wends its way past cafés, hotels, bars, and shops.

Located one story below street level, the waterway is flanked on either side by stone pathways, quiet waterfalls, and towering cypress trees. The winding river-walk path reveals little surprises along the way, such as picturesque restaurants, public art installations, and cardboard cutouts of Davy Crockett. A new extension connects the river walk to the four-story San Antonio Museum of Art, where you'll find more than 25,000 sculptures and paintings that range from Roman antiquities to contemporary art.

Also neighboring the river walk is the Alamo. Thanks to the 1836 battle that made it a symbol of Texas independence, the Alamo has become the most visited tourist site in the state. It's actually one of five historic Spanish missions clustered around the San Antonio River. The largest, Mission San José, lies just 5 miles south of downtown. Its famed rose window is once again on display following an extensive renovation.
