Spacious and elegant rooms, along with award-winning dining and a downtown location
Parking here is expensive
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.

This hotel is the closest thing downtown San Antonio has to a five-star hotel and provides the perfect setting for a restful and pampered stay.

Frommer's Exceptional



Mokara Hotel & Spa, housed in a building that once served as a saddlery, provides plush accommodations and a world-class spa. Guest rooms and suites are handsomely appointed with iron four-poster beds, colonial furnishings, and distinctive local artwork.

Creamy-hued rooms have 12-foot ceilings, expansive windows, marble baths, and hand-forged iron four-poster beds.


The luxury Mokara is one of San Antonio’s most luxurious hotels. The boutique hotel sits on a prime location right on the River Walk, and has such swanky amenities as a stately lobby, a signature spa, a riverfront seafood restaurant, and a beautiful rooftop pool with drink service and excellent city views.
