Positioned right on the riverwalk, this stunning hotel puts you right in the heart of the city’s top eats, drinks, and sights. Inside, expect Texan glamor and contemporary design; 195 boutique rooms outfitted with local art, Mediterranean-style black & white tiled bathrooms, and some with towering balconies to enjoy your morning brew or nightcap on. Speaking of which, you’ll want to add their restaurant and bar to the schedule, too. Domingo, under the lobby, serves acclaimed South Texan fare, while Otro Bar, is a go-to for local cool cats with a thirst for agave-forward beverages. Complimentary bike rental is provided.
San Antonio isn’t just the best day (or weekend) trip to take from Austin anymore. It is a destination in its own right, filled with incredible cuisine, fun time bars, gorgeous hotels, fascinating historical structures, and much more. Time your visit for the annual fiesta celebration or the rodeo, and you’ll need a whole itinerary that requires some forward planning, especially when it comes to accommodation.
Here’s a tip; the bulk of tourist activity happens along the River Walk, and this is where you’ll want to be based. Luckily, there are lots of hotels primely positioned along or at least near it, along with resorts further afield where the point is to get away from the bustle. From right-on-the-water happening hangouts to charming boutiques by the Alamo to family-friendly spa resorts a short drive away, here are our favorite stays in San Antonio.
