Overview

Individually decorated guest rooms; centrally located
No on-site dining, spa or pool

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 Each accommodation features its own personal decor, which some recent visitors found outdated while others loved the turn-of-the-century charm.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.
