Editorial review:

The Watermark Hotel And Spa is more modern than its sister hotel, La Mansión del Rio and has a staff that spoils guests. The rooms are elegant and relaxing, and there are a myriad of great treatments and workout options to choose from at the 17,000-square foot spa. The river location is excellent and is convenient to numerous dining choices.

        Room was very spacious, hotel and room decor was understated and elegant.

        The night dining menu was not at all at a level of 4+star hotel (or even a 3 star hotel). After 10:30 the options were akin to what you would get at a denny's. It was shocking.

        1.The comfort and decor of the rooms and lobby; 2. the valet staff was excellent; 3. we enjoyed the restaurant on the Riverwalk; 4. I was pleased to receive a phone call from the security dept upon our return informing us about an item we left in the room and appreciated the offer to mail it to us; 5. the butter cream solution you gifted us with upon our arrival along with the glasses of champagne, were a welcome treat.

        1.valet parking rae of $32 per day would dissuade us from staying there again; 2. the dirty champagne glasses from our stay the first night were never removed from the room during our two night stay; 3. I made arangements to have my hair done with the same stylist who had done my daughter's hair but she accepted an appointment with someone else which prevented me from getting my hair done for the wedding I was attending

        Close proximity to riverwalk and the quiteness of the hotel. However there is a nightclub 60 yards away where patrons were hanging out at screaming and holowering at 2:00-3:00 am when leaving the establishmnet. Otherwise it was a confortable.

        Well, the bath tub had hair from previous guest. The roof top Hot tub was not working and swimming pool water was very cloudly. Also the hot tub and pool are closed at 10:00 pm which was a real disapointment. This was going to be the highlight of our stay, considering it was our 25th anniverssary. I believe the hotel is certainly overpriced.
