U.S. News Review

Perched quietly on the River Walk, the Hotel Contessa offers large suites with an ambiance class and comfort. Recent guests have been impressed with the Contessa's genuinely friendly staff, which sets this hotel apart from large chain hotels found in downtown San Antonio. If you are tired of touring the sites, you can retreat to The Woodhouse Day Spa or the heated rooftop pool and Jacuzzi. As the evening draws to a close, indulge in innovative Spanish cuisine at Las Ramblas Riverwalk Restaurant or grab a cocktail at the Cork Bar. And when it comes time to hit the hay, you'll find Contessa's rooms to be spacious, if not fairly standard with amenities like complimentary Wi-Fi and oversized bathrooms. But compared to room rates at other hotels, recent guests felt they got more than what they paid for at this Benchmark Hospitality property.
