My wedding was a fairy tail thanks to the staff at Rio Plaza. I am grateful that I found this venue. Catie Cottingham worked hard to make sure our wedding day was exactly what we wanted. She kept me calm and US first...more than you can ask for the most important day of your life! I am grateful to Melanie Planas and Traci Burton for making our experience with Rio Plazas unforgettable. The staff here is considered family because they truly went above and beyond all of our expectations. I will DEFINITELY keep this venue in mind for future events and tell all of my friends what a great experience it was. People are still talking about how wonderful our wedding was. From the manager to the serving staff (Jeffrey was OUTSTANDING!) we could not have asked for a better experience. From the balcony/Las Layendas room to the Grande Vista room...it was truly beautiful! All of you deserve an award!! We thank you from the bottom of our hearts!!
Melanie was amazing to work with and so knowledgeable. She made the process stress free and seemless for me which is amazing. The venue was perfect - especially for the pricing! My family and friends said what a wonderful wedding it was how great it went. We had our wedding ceremony on the fourth floor balcony and went down to the 3rd floor Calle Vista room for the reception and both were more than I could of dreamed. Thank you Melanie and team for making my day so fantastic!! Especially in such short notice!!
Melanie and Victoria were excellent! My wedding was everything I had ever dreamed but the room was fairly warm all evening. But still a truly amazing experience.
I am the Mother of the Bride and loved Rio Plaza. Melanie Planas and her staff were so accommodating to our needs. I thought we would have to go over and decorate. Melanie asked our preferences and whenever we walked in after the wedding ceremony, all was done to perfection. Our wedding coordinator mentioned to me that Melanie was "on top of everything". We highly recommend this beautiful venue. We stayed at the Omni La Mansion del Rio and it was so convenient. Our guests didn't have to drive and park (just walked across the foot bridge). On top of everything else, they stayed safe on their walk back to the hotel and didn't have to drive after a few drinks. The Rio Plaza is an awesome venue. Give them a whirl if you need a place. Our second floor offered a gorgeous view of the river with all the lights.
Rio Plaza was perfect for our Wedding Welcome Party. The venu gave our out of town guests a great experience on The River Walk. Melanie was great to work with and she really made sure everything went smoothly! I would highly recommend this spot for any party!
Everything was perfect for our reception. We were so happy with everything and the service was phenomenal!!! Would definitely recommend!!!
Melanie and the staff that helped the evening of the 17th were beyond amazing. Everyone who attended all spoke so highly of the staff of how nice and how professional everyone was. There are not words to explain how much Melanie helped us throughout the process, from the day we went to review the venue for the first time to the evening when we were collecting all of the things to be taken home. Melanie knowing that we both lived out of town made everything so simple and easy for us. I must say that the next party we have we will definately be using Rio. We will also be recommending this location to all of our friends and family, of which a few have already expressed there intent to use Rio for there upcoming events. We rate this a five star location. With the five star hospitality down to the five star location. We thank you for making this very special day for us even more amazing. Melanie is the BEST!!!
Rio Plaza was a wonderful place to have our wedding. After visiting several venues in and around the San Antonio area, my husband and I decided on Rio Plaza. I am so glad that we did. The venue was beautiful, the food was delicious, the margaritas were still being talked about by our guests and they all told us that they had so much fun! The price was very reasonable and included, a day of coordinator, food, table decorations, clean-up, set-up, drinks, and venue for reception and ceremony. Melanie, the wedding coordinator was helpful, cheerful and quickly helped with any obstacles we encountered. I had a stress-free wedding day because everything was handled so well by Melanie and the staff at Rio Plaza. I would highly recommend having any event at this venue! They made our special day, truly, the BEST day ever!
The ease of planning and attention to detail make this beautiful venue worth it! The staff is extremely pleasant and accommodating and very easy to work with. The venue itself is well located with ample parking. The event spaces are very picturesque. All details were attended to and we arrived at the event to see everything was done as we discussed. During the event the staff were very attentive. I highly recommend this venue!
Melanie was incredibly helpful and accommodating in helping with all the special touches for our day!
My client was very pleased with the entire event. I was not there, but worked directly with Melanie in the Sales Dept. who was extremely helpful and did an excellent job.
Melanie and her entire staff were top notch and five stars all the way! From the start she worked with me to make sure the 60th Birthday Black Tie event went smoothly and stress free. The guests were blown away of how beautiful and classy the room looked, and raved on how good the food was. I would recommend this venue to anyone looking for a great place, and great price!. -Maverick and George
OMG - Book here with Melanie!!!! She makes it so easy and thinks of everything. She has contacts she can recommend if you need someone and the staff was so very professional and attentive during our event. We brought in a lot of personal décor and the ballroom was stunning! The food was also incredible. We had the almond crusted chicken and mashed potatoes and received MANY compliments on the food. It was easy, it was wonderful and Melanie and her staff are INCREDIBLE!!! We could not have been more pleased! It was a perfect evening!
The Rio Plaza is the absolute best! They have many different rooms you can book- we used them for both our rehearsal dinner and wedding reception. The food was AMAZING! Our guests raved about the food. The service was great and the staff was so friendly. We worked with Melanie and she is the best! She was so organized and was present 100% of the time. She puts so much effort into everything she does- and she does everything to ensure the events were perfect. Thank you all for making the best day of our lives so special! YALL ARE THE BEST! I want to do it all again! XOXO

As a Wedding Officiant I have Officiated many weddings in many venues but I couldn't be happier with choosing Rio Plaza as my son and new daughter in laws wedding venue. The different venues they have are absolutely gorgeous and the ceremony area is breathtaking. As for Melaney our on site Wedding coordinator, she was absolutely a godsent! She anticipated our needs, made wonderful suggestions, and went out of her way to help us bring our vision to life. The entire staff was very professional as well, they even packed up at the end of the night. They took great care of every detail so that we could enjoy our sons wedding. Thank you Melaney for loving what you do, it shows.

There isn't enough words to explain how wonderful Melanie was. She really gave us a stree-free, beautiful ceremony and wedding. The venue itself is gorgeous and was perfect for our budget! We had catering through Rita's, and the had so many compliments on the food. People talked about it for weeks. Melanie worked on our time and helped us with anything we needed. She was so easy to talk to and helped bring my dream wedding to life. We couldn't have done it without her! If I could do it all over again I would, and I'd pick her and this venue every single time! Look no further, because you've found what you're looking for!
The staff at Rio Plaza exceeded our expectations for not only the days leading up to the event but the day of as well. I am so grateful for the continuous help and support to make our wedding absolutely perfect. We are so grateful and extremely happy we chose this venue!!!
So glad we found this place! Not only do they have wonderful party/reception rooms but they have great food, an amazing event coordinator and are such a good price. They are the best!
Melanie Planas was the best part of booking my event at Rio Plaza-- She was so helpful and responsive, and ultimately it was her that made my event go so smoothly with minimum effort on my part. The food was fantastic and all of my guests had only positive things to say. I 100% recommend Rio Plaza!
The two things that made the decision for us were first, the space (las leyendas) and second the manager/planner, Melanie, who handled our event. The view from the 4th floor balcony is amazing and the space had a really nice breeze- important because we had our ceremony outside (even in November SA can be warm!). The reception room is beautiful and the bar and restrooms were well placed but still unobtrusive. Rio Plaza catered for us and there were lots of compliments on the food and drinks- especially the margaritas! Melanie met with us through the whole process and was on-site during the wedding to make sure everyone was where they were supposed to be and to help with any minor mishaps (even hot glue for one of the bouquets). She is a true professional and made working with Rio Plaza a pleasure. I would happily recommend Rio Plaza-
We had an amazing time at our wedding . I only had a month to plan and they were able to make everything happen. Melanie was our wedding coordinator and she was perfect she answered all my questions and was so patient. She worked with us to make sure we had what we wanted. I loved it and was so happy I had it there .
Our expectations were exceeded at the Rio Plaza!! We had our dream wedding and more! Tracy was so helpful with planning all the way down the smallest details! Everything went smoothly during the ceremony and reception. Our guest had a great time and couldn't stop talking about how delicious the food was! Beautiful view of the Riverwalk steps away from Plaza! We would definitely recommend the Rio Plaza to anyone looking for well organized, scenic venue!!
When shopping around for reception venues, my fiancé and I were looking for a setting that provided a unique ambiance but would not kill our budget. Upon visiting Rio Plaza and meeting with Melanie Planas, we knew it was our ideal venue. To begin, the location is the BEST. It is right on the Riverwalk and surrounded by so much vibrancy and San Antonio culture. The next highlight for us was working with Melanie as the venue coordinator. Melanie is extremely knowledgeable, professional and SO accommodating when it comes to making your dream wedding come to life. I had a TON of questions and concerns because I did not hire a wedding planner but Melanie was always very responsive and found a way to work with me on every request I made. The food was delicious, the drinks were awesome and it did not break our bank. In fact, every guest I have spoken to since the wedding has complimented us on how awesome and unique our venue was! I HIGHLY recommend Rio Plaza for your wedding or event. You will not be disappointed.
Melanie and the team at Rio Plaza are absolutely amazing. She had an incredible amount of patience throughout the contracting and planning process. When I arrived on site, the entire team was professional and so helpful. I arrived early to set up all my decoration with they helped me set up and even take down at the end of the night. I highly recommend this venue for all sorts of events - weddings/corporate functions/family events. Our guests had an amazing time!
