Amazing hotel on the Riverwalk. Superior service. The only thing is I wish they had private balconies, but I have noticed that most of the nice riverwalk hotels dont have balconies. I dont understand why. At least Hotel Contessa has an amazing panoramic rooftop view and has outside seating on the river. We will be back!

Had a great stay at the Hotel Contessa in San Antonio. Especially friendly and helpful were the team members Mando, Eddie G. and Francisco. This is a beautiful place right on the River Walk with lots of fun things to do nearby.

Room Tip: If you can get a view of the River Walk that would be great, but we were fine with a city view.

We stayed at Hotel Contessa over Easter weekend and as always they delivered. It was our second stay there and I can't imagine anywhere else in San Antonio. They are so nice as is the hotel itself. You can walk right out onto the Riverwalk and have a drink. The rooftop pool is awesome too. My favorite place to stay No doubt.

We stayed at the Contessa on a business trip, not knowing it was spring break in Texas! Our stay would have been perfect, except the hotel was full and we were given 2 twin beds instead of a king. Everything else was excellent - from the restaurant to the valet service. Mando L was especially attentive - what a hard worker!

When booking again, I'll double check on the room type...

Room Tip: Make sure to check the room type and have your confirmation with you!

Beautiful hotel in a great location!!! Incredibly clean- saw staff cleaning nooks and crannies every day! Loved the rooftop pool- very relaxing and lovely. Staff was very friendly, especially the bellhops who had to transport all our suitcases. Happy hour had great margaritas for a good price and it was lovely to drink them on the outdoor patio near the river.

Room Tip: We loved having a riverview room.
