Westin_RiverwalkDowntown San Antonio is an ideal place for your family travel, and the best way to see it is from a Riverwalk hotel. The Westin Riverwalk is one that provides a very comfortable and classy welcome for the family, and even pets.

The hotel has access along a quiet stretch of San Antonio’s famed Riverwalk. It is a 5-10-minute walk from the main tourist spots surrounding the Alamo, the Rivercenter Mall, as well as Hemisfair Park, where the Tower of the Americas is located. Rooms overlook either the Riverwalk or 4th floor outdoor pool (which is next to a good-sized gym).

The Westin Riverwalk was rated #7 in best San Antonio hotels by US News. It deserves at least that, if not higher. Service is excellent, and both courteous and friendly. Kids are plentiful and welcome, as are pets.

While you’re there, check out the Zocca restaurant, which offers outdoor seating and an amazing menu of mostly Italian dishes. The choices evenSAZocca accommodate the diet conscious.
