I would hesitate to choose the Hotel Contessa when our family visits San Antonio again! Great location, beautiful hotel with a very attentive staff. We had a few VERY minor issues during our stay (wet tissue box, slow coffeepot, missing breakfast vouchers) and every single concern was immediately addressed by the staff. The rooms are very spacious with a separate living area to relax in or play games. We booked the room/breakfast package and it was very nice to come down to the restaurant each morning and be greeted by friendly staff and enjoy the great food and lovely view.
Any negatives about the room are very minor...there is no microwave and no full length mirror...but there is a big mirror in the public restroom downstairs if you really need to see all the way to the floor.
Parking is limited in San Antonio and it is common to pay to park ....even at the mall! The hotel has its own valet parking for a daily fee and I had not originally intended to use it. However, it was very convenient to park at the hotel and have the car brought to the front when needed. One day we got back to the hotel in the rain and four valets opened all our doors and parked for us...that day I was really glad we used valet parking! Just be aware there is no free parking at the hotel...but that is common in San Antonio. The hotel valets are always ready to give you a water bottle or directions....they even retrieved forgotten hats from the vehicle. Very helpful fellows ...but they all were! ,,,,the bellman, Mando, and the front desk staff too...everyone was very friendly and seemed to genuinely care that we were there! My reservations agent, Jaro, went above and beyond to make everything just right. All in all.....a great trip, a friendly city and a wonderful hotel! I'd stay at the Hotel Contessa again in a heartbeat! A little pricey, but all the riverwalk hotels are...and this one is worth every penny!
(Note: My suggestion about getting around town is to use the trolley system as much as you can & leave your car at the hotel when possible....the trolley is inexpensive and fun! However, we did find a $5 all day lot at Market Square. For your information....the distance from the hotel to the Alamo by street or to the River Center Mall area via the riverwalk is about 3/4 mile.)
