We are so glad to have chosen Hilton Palacio del Rio as our wedding reception venue!
We are so glad to have chosen Hilton Palacio del Rio as our wedding reception venue! Our ceremony was next door at the Little Church of La Villita and then it was a quick walk to our reception room downstairs in The Stetson Room. The year prior we were instantly sold once we saw how beautiful the Stetson Room was, and the day of the wedding didn’t disappoint either. This venue was a very affordable option for downtown San Antonio, especially considering all the awesome amenities that came with the wedding package. It offered a lot more than other venues that I have toured. The location on the Riverwalk was absolutely perfect for our out-of-town wedding guests to enjoy. The event staff coordinated their in-house catering service perfectly with our wedding timeline and also handled the outside vendors we expected the day of the wedding. We took advantage of the bridal ready-room with lunch package and enjoyed a nice spread of sandwiches, skewers, fruits and cheeses along with mimosas. The dinner was so good! All our guests enjoyed their meals and portion sizes were perfect, no one was hungry at the end of the night. The event and hotel staff were so friendly and helpful. There was excellent communication from scheduling our very first tour to our farewell day after the wedding!
