If you love the funky creativity, old-world ambiance of a fun boutique hotel with excellent and discreet service, check out Hotel Havana. It is located on the northern section of the San Antonio Riverwalk--near the busy restaurants, bars and shops but just far enough away to be peaceful and quiet. The lobby is classic, dark-stained wood with high ceilings. The atmosphere is Cuba-retro-elegance, and we were told many of the antiques are from Cuba. Rooms contain stocked retro-refrigerators with curved edges in 50s colors. The staff and service are wonderful, and you get the feel off being in a private hotel off the beaten path. The restaurant Ocho has a smaller menu, but the food is all excellent; the décor is retro-hip; and when they open one wall of windows, you can eat overlooking the San Antonio River. The bar downstairs is candlelit; the drinks are excellent and the bartender is super friendly. My husband and I went here for an anniversary even though we live in San Antonio, and I go to Ocho to eat whenever I can. Try the Cuban Sandwich with a mojito, and you will not be disappointed.
