The Hotel Contessa is ideally located on San Antonio’s Riverwalk and the center of downtown.

Walk out the front door and you are a quick 5-10 min walk from the El Mercado Market Square for Mexican dining, historic sites like the Spanish Governor’s Palace, entertainment at the Aztec Theatre.

Walk out the back door into the Riverwalk and you have access along the tree lined grotto to restaurants, more entertainment at the Arleson River Theatre and a beautiful walk to the Alamo.

I loved this location both for its accessibility as well as the fact that it is in a quieter part of the Riverwalk for breakfast outdoor dining on the terrace enjoying the serenity of the Riverwalk. - San Antonio - Hotel Contessa - San Antonio - Hotel Contessa - San Antonio - Hotel Contessa



Property Highlights

Hotel Contessa is a luxury hotel that offer all the customary amenities you would expect including a fitness center, business center, concierge and valet parking as well as a Day Spa.

Two areas that were the highlight of this property from my stay was the gorgeous rooftop pool and atmosphere to enjoy this beautiful property.

The pool is spectacular with views of downtown San Antonio for some wonderful night swimming. One of the nights I was there, a storm rolled through  – Texas size for some great views of both downtown and the storm that was brewing. - San Antonio - Hotel Contessa

This hotel also has so a wonderful main sitting area and bar that will want to make you linger.  It feels both open with huge palm tress in the enormous area and cozy at the same time with little nooks for conversation.

A margarita at the Cork Bar is a must at this property. Try the Blistered Shishito Peppers for a unique twist of San Antonio cuisine. - San Antonio - Hotel Contessa - San Antonio - Hotel Contessa



Hotel Contessa has 265 room and all are suites for a spacious stay.  The rooms offer an urban/modern feel with brick walls, modern artwork and some classic touches of San Antonio carved furniture.   There is plenty of room to spread out with a separate living room, bedroom and a spacious bathroom.

As the property is located on the riverwalk, many of the rooms has scenic views of the watery canal. - San Antonio - Hotel Contessa - San Antonio - Hotel Contessa
