    Mokara Hotel & Spa
    San Antonio, TX
    4.5-star HOTEL CLASS
    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.

    Hotel Valencia Riverwalk
    San Antonio, TX
    4-star HOTEL CLASS
    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.

    Éilan Hotel & Spa, Autograph Collection
    San Antonio, TX
    4.5-star HOTEL CLASS
    TripAdvisor Traveler Rating 4.5 based on 973 reviewsTripAdvisor (973)
    Free Parking
    Free WiFi

    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. Previous guests also enjoyed the imaginative Southwestern-inspired cuisine served at Sustenio Restaurant & Bar. 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 Bonvoy 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.

    Hotel Contessa
    San Antonio, TX
    4-star HOTEL CLASS
    TripAdvisor Traveler Rating 4.5 based on 3631 reviewsTripAdvisor (3631)
    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.

    The Fairmount
    San Antonio, TX
    4-star HOTEL CLASS
    TripAdvisor Traveler Rating 3.5 based on 175 reviewsTripAdvisor (175)
    Free WiFi

    If you want character, stay at The Fairmount (not to be confused with Fairmont). This boutique hotel occupies a Victorian-era building in downtown San Antonio, close to many of the city's most beloved attractions. The historical property is decked out in rich European fabrics and antique furniture. And when you stay at this property, you'll stay in a one-of-a-kind room. Each accommodation features its own personal decor, which some recent visitors found outdated while others loved the turn-of-the-century charm. But all rooms come equipped with flat-screen TVs and complimentary wireless internet. Some previous guests complained of housekeeping issues and the lack of on-site dining, though (the latter a result of the property's restaurant being closed for renovations). However, because of The Fairmount's location near the River Walk, plenty of eateries are located within walking distance.
