Question After Sharkweek- River Walk Suggestions

After Sharkweek, my girlfriend and I plan on staying an extra day at San Antonio River Walk. (suggested by many friends). I have been looking at several of the hotels but the same issue keeps coming up.... parking!

Any of our Texas friends, or anyone who has been there, have any suggestions of a good hotel that has parking (even if I have to pay for it) or a good safe place to park the glide for a day?? I want to park it and not have to worry about it until I hit the road Saturday.

In addition, any suggestions of places to eat and drink are always welcome

(thinking about this trip is the only thing getting me through this #$&@*! winter!)

When I was looking for a hotel down there I contacted a few hotels asking what their policy is for motorcycles. Most of them are charging anywhere from $25-$30 per night. The http://www.mengerhotel.com/ hotel came back with a nice setup of $28 per slot and will allow up to 3 bikes per slot.

I guess I do things the odd way, I've been to San Antonio and the River Walk many times but never stayed right on the river, I guess I didn't like the cost. If you don't stay downtown, there are several parking lots that are somewhat secure close to the River Walk, where you can park your bike and walk to it, or catch a trolley.

+1. Usually at the hotel, there is no one watching over your bike. Some of the secured lots are manned and they will watch out for you.

Unless it has changed, you might want to grab lunch at the Casa Rio. Great Tex-Mex and it's on the Riverwalk.

You might check out the Drury. Its a little unusual it's an old bank building. Supposed to be haunted. I always stay there when I go there for conventions. Room are nice and spacious. It says no self parking but I have parked my bike there myself. I just tipped the valet. Two of us shared one space for $21. If you want something different to eat Dick's Last Resort is fun as is Dirty Nelly's or Howl at the Moon.

Thanks for some of the ideas. My girlfriend is flying to met me for Sharkweek so she will have a rental car. I thinking I may schedule an overpriced oil change and service at a Harley dealer on Friday morning and pick the bike up the next day before heading home. (have to decide Caliente or Cowboys Alamo City)

This extra night stay idea is already beginning to look costly!

Try the drury plaza or hotel contessa. There both next to the riverwalk by county line BBQ. Be sure and try mad dogs British pub and the esquire. The esquire is amazing. Longest wooden bar in Texas and oldest on the riverwalk.

Gruene HD in New Braunfels has by far the best customer service in the state. I would personally take my bike there over either dealer in San Antonio.
