"Fabulous place to stay when visiting San Antonio"
We stayed here three days ( sep. 25-28) and I would highly recommend it while in San Antonio. It's an old, historic hotel in the heart of all the activity. Right across from the Alamo and a short walk to the Riverwalk. Since we stayed three days, we got a discount coupon to use for dinner at the hotel. the dinner was wonderful- veal and salmon. The breakfast buffet, (a little pricey) was delicious and there was a guitarist playing that added a nice ambience. The rooms are small but the location was more important to us. Also, the garden area with rocking chairs is a great place to unwind after a day of sightseeing. And my husband enjoyed the pool area. Hotel staff were very helpful.
My husband and I spent a long weekend here for our wedding anniversary. We could not say enough about how much we enjoyed our stay. The room was great, the food was great, the location was great and right on the river. The staff was very helpful and courteous. We would definately stay again.
I would highly recommend the Hotel Contessa to anyone. The hotel was beautiful, the room excellent, and the location perfect; the Riverwalk was just a few feet outside of the lower lobby/restaurant and the Market, The Alamo, Ripley's, and many other destinations were only a few short blocks away. The staff and services were very friendly and efficient. Check-in and Check-out were a breeze; they even held our luggage/car for a couple extra hours after check-out so that we could continue to see the sights. I cannot imagine having had a better experience.
The room was relaxing and the bathroom was like a spa! It was large enough so that 10 ladies could privately meet in the room before our night on the town and share a first drink together. We were so happy that the room had a roll out table and silverware to use for cutting the cake. Although it was hard to get a hold of a front desk person at night, the valets were very welcoming and helpful to us. For the 4 ladies who spent the night, we found that the fold out sofa bed was decently comfortable.
