My husband and I stayed one night at the Hotel Contessa to celebrate our 5th anniversary on the Riverwalk. The hotel is beautiful and charming with lots of character. The room was cozy and felt more like home than a typical hotel. We got the king suite with river view. You get a lot for your money here because the room is very spacious and upscale while the price reflects something more like a small mid-grade room at a hotel chain. The view of the river was lovely but it might have been nicer if it was off the living room rather than the bedroom because the curtains had to be closed most of the time. The room was well decorated and the exposed brick wall was such a nice touch. Everything was clean and the bed was so comfortable. We both slept perfectly all night. The location of this hotel is perfect for the Riverwalk attractions and others such as the Alamo. We had drinks in the hotel bar at Happy Hour before dinner. I recommend the sangria both red and white! All of the staff are friendly and helpful. Our room was very quiet even with all of the bustle below on the Riverwalk. The rooftop pool was really nice but very crowded. That is to be expected in July though. We didn't use the spa but it looked quite nice and the prices weren't too bad for a hotel spa. We would definitely stay here again. I don't think we'd spring for the river view again but that is just a personal preference. Pets are allowed here for a fee and they even have gourmet dog biscuits on the mini bar! The free internet was a huge plus because most hotels charge about $15 a night for that. The room service menu had a lot to choose from and the mini bar also had a lot more choices for drinks and snacks than most hotels. The toiletries were of a much higher quality than most so don't bother bringing your own soap and shampoo. This will definitely be our go-to hotel for future Riverwalk stays. We loved it!
