We stayed at the Hotel Contessa in January to attend a conference in San Antonio. The property is a fairly new and run very well. The staff was very accomodating . Our room was a 2 room suite, with great local decor. The bedroom had a seperate door. The bed was very comfortable and we had a great city view and a view of the Riverwalk.
We will return to the Hotel Contessa on our next trip to San Antonio!

Room Tip: We really enjoyed room 305 with a CityView

This is now one of my favorite hotels. My room was actually a suite with a nice, spacious living room and good sized bedroom. It also had a large, well-appointed bathroom. My stay was comfortable and quiet. The room was very clean. I would love to stay here again.

Also, this hotel is on the beautiful River Walk!

We booked Hotel Contessa through an online site and were so pleased we extended our stay one more night. The hotel was very clean and had a great location. The staff was extremely friendly and helpful. We would recommend Hotel Contessa for your next stay.

After reading Trip Advisor reviews on many hotels for our first visit to San Antonio we chose Hotel Contessa and it was the perfect choice! My husband & I spent 3 nights in late November and thoroughly enjoyed our stay. We loved the convenient location on the Riverwalk. Just being able to walk out the door of the hotel and walk along the Riverwalk to all the restaurants & shops was so enjoyable. It was also a short walk to the Alamo and the sightseeing bus tours.
We really enjoyed that this is a suite hotel - having the living room separate from the bedroom was wonderful and there is a TV in each room. Bed was so comfortable & the bathroom is huge! Service was excellent and we look forward to staying at Hotel Contessa when we return to San Antonio, which we hope will be in the near future!

Ask for Eddie G, bellman par excellence. Readily accessible concierge service. Consult with Katy. Step right out the door onto the Riverwalk Check in was flawless
Varied breakfast buffet reasonably priced for a high grade hotel. Would stay here again in a heartbeat.

Great place to stay! we were very satisfied with our choice to stay here while in town. The room is great; I loved the separate living area. There was a night I couldn’t sleep, so I was able to go into the living room to watch TV and close the door to the bedroom, as to not wake up my wife. The staff was great. I highly, highly suggest eating the Paella Mariscos Superiora in the in-house restaurant, Las Ramblas. This was one of the best meals I ever had and I have eaten out a lot over the years. Staying on the River Walk is totally worth paying a little extra for. A beautiful city, if you’ve never been there.

Room Tip: Buy a case of water and snacks from a Walgreens or something like that, as the in-room waters are $4...

My wife and I stayed here for a weekend get-away and enjoyed ourselves completely. The hotel is located on the Riverwalk and is but a moderate, pleasant walk to the main restaurant area on the river (it is also a little over a half mile east of the Market Square on Dolorosa/Market Street). We had a room on the 8th floor that overlooked the river. Unfortunately there is a parking garage directly across the river which hampered the ambiance of the view.

The hotel staff was very nice, helpful and friendly. We used the valet parking which cost an additional $30/day. The attendants were careful and our car was waiting for us every time we called for it. You can park in pay parking lot catty corner from the hotel, but costs $15 every exiting. So if you plan on not driving during your stay, this is an economical option. The room was very clean and comfortable with a separate sitting area apart from the bedroom. There was no refrigerator. There is a spa on the top floor of the hotel that we'll try on our next visit. The pool is located on the roof with large plate glass windows to enjoy the panoramic view - very pretty.

We did not visit the bar or restaurant at Contenssa opting for Budrow's down the river walk, but heard it was good.

We would definitely stay here again.
