    Hotel Emma
    San Antonio, TX
    #1 in Best Hotels in San Antonio
    TripAdvisor Traveler Rating 5 based on 2883 reviewsTripAdvisor (2883)

    Hotel Emma stands out among travelers for its cool culture. This is largely brought on by the hotel's history as a former brewery. In 1916, Pearl's Brewhouse became the largest brewery in Texas, and although its heyday has come and gone, many of the Pearl's original architectural features are still intact. Visitors marvel at the refined industrial elements featured throughout – particularly in the lobby – and are equally impressed with the quality of the accommodations. Guests report rooms to be exceptionally styled and comfortable, thanks to amenities like 48-inch flat-screen TVs, beds with Frette linens and luxury bathrobes. And food is just as much of a staple here as beer used to be. Foodies can take advantage of the on-site concierge for recommendations in the area, or they can grab some house-butchered meats at Larder, enjoy small plates at Sternewirth or sample the farm-to-table fare at Supper. There is also a rooftop pool, a fitness center, a library and a gift shop on-site. Service consistently wows lodgers, as does the hotel's location just 2 miles north of downtown San Antonio

    The St. Anthony, A Luxury Collection Hotel
    San Antonio, TX
    #2 in Best Hotels in San Antonio
    TripAdvisor Traveler Rating 4.5 based on 812 reviewsTripAdvisor (812)

    Less than three blocks north of the San Antonio River Walk, this National Historic Landmark, restored in early 2015 mixes 20th-century architecture with modern style and amenities. Visitors say the property has been restored to its original grandeur and features crown molding, mosaic tile flooring and glass chandeliers throughout the common areas. You'll find more up-to-date stylings in the spacious guest rooms, including 300-thread-count linens, pillow-top mattresses, minibars, oversized writing desks and local artwork. Travelers can take advantage of the on-site fitness center or take a dip in the rooftop pool, while those in town on business can use the 24-hour business center. To unwind, guests can linger in one of the two on-site lounges, including the St. Anthony Club. If you're looking for more sustenance, you can grab breakfast at Gallery On the Park, or sit down at the upscale guest favorite, ReBelle, for dinner. Recent guests said the St. Anthony Hotel distinguishes itself from other properties in the city by exceeding their expectations and providing five-star service. As a member of the Marriott hotel family, Marriott Rewards members can earn and use points here.

    Mokara Hotel & Spa
    San Antonio, TX
    #3 in Best Hotels in San Antonio
    TripAdvisor Traveler Rating 4.5 based on 1742 reviewsTripAdvisor (1742)
    Free WiFi

    Sitting just a short distance from San Antonio's River Walk, Mokara Hotel & Spa appeals to business and leisure travelers alike with its elegant decor and long list of amenities. Despite its downtown locale, Mokara Hotel & Spa's rooms are fairly spacious, featuring four-poster beds and plush lounge furniture wrapped in neutral tones. Recent guests highly recommend reserving a Riverview Room, which allows you to look over the River Walk from a private balcony. You can also get a good look at the city from the property's beautiful rooftop pool. When you're not ogling the vistas, indulge in Mokara Spa's soothing treatments or take the advice of previous visitors and nosh on sustainable seafood at Ostra. Previous visitors say the friendly staff makes staying here truly memorable, but those bringing a car should beware of expensive valet parking fees.

    Like the Hyatt Regency Hill Country Resort and Spa, the JW Marriott is a hit with families. The expansive property has fairways and spa treatments for the adults, and a lazy river and waterslides for the kids. Meanwhile, the resort offers a variety of rooms to suit groups of various sizes. Whichever accommodations you choose, you'll be surrounded by colorful decor, cozy furniture and views of the Texas Hill Country. According to guests, the staff always seems to be smiling and ready to assist, and with multiple restaurants to choose from, you certainly won't go hungry. The property is just a 21-mile drive north of downtown San Antonio, so spending a day touring the city's historical attractions is a cinch. The JW Marriott San Antonio Hill Country Resort & Spa is a member of the Marriott Hotels group, meaning that loyal guests can earn and redeem Marriott Rewards points here.

    Hotel Valencia Riverwalk

    #5 in Best Hotels in San Antonio
    TripAdvisor Traveler Rating 4.5 based on 3448 reviewsTripAdvisor (3448)
    Free WiFi

    This trendy see-and-be-seen enclave on San Antonio's River Walk attracts the hippest and wealthiest lodgers. Dorrego's restaurant set the chic tone of the property, as stylish guests and locals sip impressive cocktails. The guest rooms are just as elegant: The European-style accomodations center around a cozy bed and feature deluxe amenities like flat-screen TVs, complimentary Wi-Fi, Egyptian cotton linens and private bars. And after a fashionable night out, guests find the Hotel Valencia Riverwalk's nightly turndown service (available upon request) to be the perfect, welcoming touch to close the evening. Late-night noise is prevalent, but that comes with the territory. Should you need a little pick-me-up come morning, an in-room massage should do the trick.

    The Éilan Hotel & Spa, Autograph Collection earns high marks from recent visitors for its contemporary amenities and clean, comfortable accommodations. All guest rooms are appointed with a warm beige, white and blue or gold color scheme, as well as 42-inch flat screen TVs, work desks, Keurig coffee makers and tiled showers. Other perks like in-room bottled water and internet access are covered by the daily $22 destination amenity fee.

If you'd rather grab a quick bite, the Mercato Café offers pre-made sandwiches and Starbucks beverages. Families can enjoy quality time at the children's pool area, while adults can take advantage of the offerings at the Spa at Éilan. While recent lodgers enjoyed the amenities, they warn that management is not up to par with other Marriott properities. Still, those who participate in the Marriott Rewards program can collect or redeem points here. You'll find the Éilan Hotel & Spa located just 17 miles northwest of the Alamo in downtown San Antonio, Texas.

    La Cantera Resort & Spa

    TripAdvisor Traveler Rating 4.5 based on 4308 reviewsTripAdvisor (4308)
    Free Parking

    Situated in Texas Hill Country, approximately 17 miles north of San Antonio, the rustic yet luxurious La Cantera Resort & Spa is beloved by guests for the sheer amount of space it occupies. Spread out across 550 acres, the resort boasts two 18-hole golf courses, several restaurants, five pools, a fitness center, tennis courts and a spa that spans 25,000 square feet. That list doesn't even include the kids amenities, which range from a supervised Kids Club Camp to an on-site arcade. Aside from its bevy of amenities, La Cantera also wins praise for its accommodations, which range from 395 to 1,698 square feet. Rooms are outfitted with Keurig coffee makers, minifridges, bottled water, complimentary Wi-Fi access, and in select accommodations, balconies (a perk worth the inflated room rate, according to reviewers). Keep in mind: The hotel charges a daily $32 resort fee that covers resort activities, self-parking, bottled water and shuttle service within a 3-mile radius of the property, among other amenities.

    Recent guests have great things to say about the beautiful Hyatt Regency Hill Country Resort and Spa and its employees. Located about 17 miles from downtown San Antonio, this Hyatt's more than 300 acres are home to a water park, a spa and a 27-hole golf course. There's even a nature trail for guests hoping to get some fresh air and exercise. With so much to do and the resort's proximity to SeaWorld, the Hyatt Regency Hill Country attracts a lot of families. The hotel accommodates this with a variety of room types, from classic guest rooms to more spacious suites. No matter which type of lodging you choose, you'll have access to an iPod docking station, a flat-screen TV and a minifridge. Guests appreciate the property's variety of eateries given its distance from the San Antonio dining scene, but some visitors do warn that this resort might be a better fit for those looking to spend most of their time relaxing rather than sightseeing. If you're loyal to the brand, you can use your Hyatt Gold Passport rewards points to pay for your stay.

    Free WiFi

    Perched quietly on the scenic River Walk, Hotel Contessa offers large suites with an atmosphere of class and comfort. Recent guests have been impressed with Hotel Contessa's genuinely friendly staff, which sets this property 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 Hotel 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.

    Omni La Mansión del Rio
    San Antonio, TX
    #10 in Best Hotels in San Antonio
    TripAdvisor Traveler Rating 4.5 based on 4546 reviewsTripAdvisor (4546)

    This historical property has seen the evolution of the River Walk and, more importantly, has kept up with it. Originally built in 1852 as a school, the shell of this Omni has enjoyed a prime downtown location for more than a century. Aside from the locale, visitors also appreciate the ambiance, praising the exposed-beam ceilings and bright-red decorative accents in the rooms. However, some feel that for the high price they're paying, their rooms could be updated. But the Omni La Mansión del Rio makes up for its old rooms with ample amenities: While here, spend some time by the pool or at the spa (located in the Mokara Hotel & Spa across the river), or get out and about in San Antonio on an Omni-organized history tour. Some guests weren't pleased with the River Walk noise and expensive parking, but gave high marks to the cuisine served at the award-winning Las Canarias restaurant. But for most, it's the hotel's friendly staff that truly makes staying here a pleasure. And if you're a member of the Omni Select Guest rewards program, you can spend the night in this popular hotel using points. What's more, members of the rewards program get free Wi-Fi access.

    While the Omni La Mansión del Rio caters to a more sophisticated clientele, the Omni San Antonio Hotel at the Colonnade draws more families. With its two expansive pools and Kids Crew program, this hotel provides plenty of ways to keep kiddos happy. Meanwhile, parents can take advantage of hotel perks like private massages and the on-site fitness facility with features like a hydrotherapy pool and a sauna. The Omni San Antonio also offers a variety of different room types catering to groups of all sizes, and pets are welcome to stay as long as they weigh less than 25 pounds. Recent guests say this Omni fit their needs but didn't provide the 'wow' factor of hotels closer to the River Walk (it's about 10 miles away), although room rates are slightly lower. Most family visitors value the sacrifice of location for a better price. To save even more, become a member of the Omni Select Guest program, which rewards frequent guests with points that can be put toward free stays and upgrades.

    TripAdvisor Traveler Rating 4.5 based on 3368 reviewsTripAdvisor (3368)

    Guests say that they are delighted by this Hilton's superb location along San Antonio's River Walk, providing easy access to nearby shops, restaurants and attractions. And while some are harder to please than others, most visitors praise the hotel's guest rooms, which feature signature Serenity beds and expansive windows with sprawling city views. Travelers especially liked having a private balcony, saying that it was fun to sit and people watch. But don't spend all your time just watching – get out and do. In additional to the River Walk, The Alamo and San Fernando Cathedral are both within walking distance. Or if you'd rather stick around, you can opt for a dip in the pool or a a drink in Tex's Riverwalk Sports Bar. When dinnertime rolls around, guests highly recommend The River's Edge Café and Patio for its tasty cuisine. But the prices of this recently renovated Hilton outpost don't go down quite as easily: Many visitors complained about having to pay steep fees for internet usage and parking. To save on stays, become a Hilton Honors member and earn rewards points every time you stay at a Hilton hotel.

    Both business and leisure guests can't stop raving about this Hyatt Regency's location (two blocks from The Alamo and right on the River Walk). Some visitors say that the rooms could use a facelift, while others found the signature beds to be cozy and the Wi-Fi access and iPod docking stations to be useful. Other highlights include the heated rooftop pool and the full-service DASA Spa on the River Walk, which provides facials and massages. After a day spent sightseeing (or rejuvenating), enjoy some saucy Barbecue at the swanky Q Kitchen or mingle over cocktails at Q Bar. Just one word of advice about staying here: Leave your car at home if you can. Parking here costs a pretty penny. Members of the Hyatt Gold Passport loyalty program can save a bit of dough by using points for free nights.

    Although the rooms are fairly standard at the Grand Hyatt San Antonio (spacious with all the necessary amenities), the location and customer service keep guests highly satisfied. The hotel is positioned in a quiet area just off San Antonio's iconic River Walk next door to the Henry B. Gonzalez Convention Center, making it a convenient home base for both business and leisure travelers. Previous visitors say they enjoyed spending time at this Hyatt's gym and outdoor lap pool. Others note that the hotel concierge is happy to arrange a tee time for you at one of the nearby golf courses. End your day with a hearty meal from Ruth's Chris Steak House and a cocktail at Bar Rojo. Because this is a Hyatt hotel, Hyatt Gold Passport loyalty club members can use points to pay for rooms or upgrades.

    Location, location, location: That's the first thing recent guests note about this member of the Westin family, which overlooks the famous San Antonio River Walk. But then again, many chain hotels can brag about a similar seat. According to visitors, The Westin Riverwalk, San Antonio distinguishes itself from the competition with exceptional customer service. Guests applaud the staff's professionalism and friendliness. The hotel also earns kudos for its spacious guest rooms. While brand-name properties often fall into a rut when it comes to design, The Westin Riverwalk sets itself apart yet again, boasting authentically Texan leather furniture and Heavenly Beds perched atop signature wrought iron frames. The property also houses an outdoor pool, The Woodhouse Day Spa and the acclaimed Zocca restaurant. Zocca serves Italian favorites with a side of spectacular views. And because this hotel is part of the Marriott hotel family, Marriott Rewards members can earn and use points here.
