Nice Hotel Close to The RiverWalk

Posted Jan 27, 2016
Nice Hotel, very well located in San Antonio, easy access to everywhere. The bathroom could be better with no bathtub and with bigger shower with more pressure and fast hot water. Also the blackout curtains should "blackout" the brightness from outside ;-) The bed and the pillows are excellent !!!!

No lo recomiendo, parking y desayuno muy caros

Posted Jan 25, 2016
Pros: Las habitaciones son amplias y cómodas aún que ya se ven viejas. La ubicación es muy agradable.
Cons: El costo. Es excesivo al sumar $70 del desayuno y el estacionamiento. La comida no es buena, el buffet pobre y las instalaciones no lo valen.
Las habitaciones son amplias y cómodas aún que ya se ven viejas, es agradable estar a la orilla del río, la habitación vale el precio pero, se vuelve excesivo al sumar el costo del desayuno y el estacionamiento. Los estacionamientos frente al hotel cobran 16 dólares y el hotel $35!! La comida no es buena, el buffet es muy pobre y el mínimo a pagar por el desayuno son $16 ó $18 por persona. Finalmente hay que considerar $70 dólares más por día por habitación y de ese modo no vale la pena ya que tampoco es un hotel con instalaciones impecables ó un buen buffet de desayuno. Les recomiendo que mejor busquen otra opción.

Simply the best

Posted Jan 24, 2016
This is the second time I've stayed here. I was just as pleased this visit as I was before. Even though it's a little pricier than I'd like, it's well worth it. I'll definitely return in the future.

Comfortable ambiance clean and spacious rooms.

Posted Jan 24, 2016
Pros: Definitely the location in relation to popular sites in downtown San Antonio.
Cons: An explanation of the rules and process of incidental fees at time of check-in.
Location: The riverwalk, the Alamo and plenty of eateries
Returning guest. The experience was just as exciting as the first time.

Within walking distance of a lot of activities

Posted Jan 23, 2016
Pros: I liked the lay out of the room.
Cons: Housekeeping. Came back at 5:30 one day and room had not been touched. Had to call down twice to ask for towels.
Location: The location is good. Close to great restaurants, the Alama, Rivercenter mall.
Not good. Couldn't find my reservation. Even though under my last name.

Great location!

Posted Jan 21, 2016
Pros: Convenient location. Quiet. Pretty.
Location: La Villita is very close. It is on the Riverwalk. We drove to the AT&T Center for a Spurs game and it was a quick 20 min. drive.
We chose Hotel Contessa because it is on the Riverwalk, yet on a quiet area of the river. It is a very short walk to La Villita. We have absolutely no complaints on this hotel. We parked across the street in a public parking lot for $16.00/day.

Nice hotel.

Posted Jan 19, 2016
Pros: Suite was very comfortable.
Cons: Bar and restaurant.
Location: The hotel is right on the river walk but is fairly quiet. Perfect location.
Check in experience was quick but the desk person seemed a little curt. The suite was big and roomy and very pleasant. The refrigerator was locked and didn't feel like calling to get someone to come up and unlock it. I was disappointed with the bar and restaurant menu. They used to have wonderful tapas and many Spanish dishes. Now it is a very limited menu and it's the same in both the bar and restaurant. The employees in the restaurant and bar seemed hurried and nervous although there were very. very few customers. The food was very tasty. Drinks were so-so. Our housekeeper was very friendly and enjoyed chatting with her. I would definitely stay there again but would eat and drink somewhere else.

Great hotel right on the riverwalk.

Posted Jan 19, 2016
Pros: Beautiful rooms and public areas. Very comfortable. Spacious rooms. Great shower. Great view. Perfect location if you are visiting the riverwalk.
Cons: The noise from the public areas sort of resonates throughout the hotel right up to the rooms. A little bit noisy at times.
Location: Tons of restaurants, bars, and shops within walking distance. Mall and public market also within a reasonable walking distance.
Took a chance on a weekend trip to San Antonio. We were not disappointed. The Contessa is an excellent place to stay. Very comfortable and the rooms are spacious. Great view of the riverwalk and city.
