Heralded as the oldest operating hotel West of the Mississippi, the Menger Hotel boasts past American presidents such as Theodore Roosevelt among its guests and, just for those thrill-seekers, has a possibly-haunted hotel reputation as well!
Hotel Contessa is probably the closest thing to the perfect one-stop shop of San Antonio hotels. This amazing facility is one of the best value hotels on the riverwalk in San Antonio – when most hotels on the beautiful river front cost a hefty nightly rate.
Best of all, Hotel Contessa is also within walking distance from downtown San Antonio attractions like HemisFair Park, La Villita and the Alamo!
Omni La Mansion del Rio
The Omni La Mansion del Rio is yet another San Antonio hotel nestled right along the Riverwalk providing walking distance commutes to many of downtown San Antonio’s famed attractions.
Though a member of the larger Omni family of hotels, La Mansion del Rio really embraces San Antonio’s heritage, and nowhere is this more evident than in the lovely colonial furniture and art that adorn this space.
The Westin Riverwalk
With 473 rooms (including 65 suites) and the amazing Westin staples such as the Heavenly Bed, Heavenly Bath products, and spa access, the Westin Riverwalk is a can’t-miss opportunity to enjoy San Antonio charm in style.
Of course, another huge benefit is that it's located right on San Antonio's riverwalk!
JW Marriott San Antonio Hill Country Resort & Spa
As the name may suggest, the JW Marriott Hill Country Resort & Spa is isolated on its own, sprawling estate that measures about 20 miles from downtown San Antonio.
Because of this location, staying here probably makes the most sense for locals on a weekend getaway, honeymooners looking for a romantic San Antonio hotel, or luxury travelers looking for a unique experience.
And that's it! Our guide to San Antonio's best hotels to make the most of your stay.
