Which do you recommend (and why) for a relatively short stay (3 nights) on the Riverwalk for a family trip with a 4 1/2 year old? Rates are identical. Is one nicer/more kid friendly/just better than the other? Any comments or suggestions are appreciated! A review of Tripadvisor didn't reveal a whole lot of difference, so I thought I would check with the FT community for opinions.

Hyatt winds this one

Hyatt, hands down. Newer, nicer, more comfortable rooms. Neither location is bad, Hyatt maybe slightly better. Overall, Hyatt is just a nicer property.

Oh yes.....agree on the Hyatt with a child....the big atrium should be a treat....and the bits of river that come into lobby......walking out the front door of Hyatt leads to a passageway direct to Alamo and easy access to the shopping mall.....enjoy!

i haven't stayed at the hyatt but i assure you it's nicer than the Hilton. Most any hotel on the Riverwalk has to be nicer than the Hilton.

Hyatt Riverwalk and Grand Hyatt are two different properties. The Grand Hyatt is right next to the Convention Center. The Hyatt Riverwalk is the one where the river runs inside and has the jazz club on the river level.
