When they say location is everything, the San Antonio Marriott Rivercenter means it. This luxury hotel is located on the River Walk in the heart of downtown San Antonio. It’s also steps away from restaurants and the Rivercenter Mall. It could be the perfect hotel for a San Antonio road trip getaway. My San Antonio Marriott Rivercenter review includes our favorite things and what we love the most.
Disclosure: San Antonio Marriott Rivercenter hosted us for two nights and treated us to fantastic amenities. All opinions are my own.

The Onsite Restaurant Is Worth The Visit
We had dinner at Tributary, and it was a fantastic tasting of their seasonal menu. Our dinner started with a shrimp cocktail, queso & chips, and a Bavarian pretzel, all of which were wonderful. The cocktails we ordered were refreshing and fruity. I liked mine so much I ordered a second one.
Our main dishes were fantastic. I had the pork tenderloin schnitzel with mashed potatoes and a salad. My friend had pork belly mac & cheese. I may have grabbed a bit —it was so good.
For dessert, we shared the Hill Country peach dessert. It was a plate of heaven of rich peach ice cream over a cinnamon almond cake topped with bourbon caramel and pecan crumbles.
