Highly recommend this hotel. Location is great! We walked to almost everything and if we did Uber, it wasn’t very much. It was very quiet at night and very clean and spacious. The restaurant, The Ambler, located inside the hotel is also amazing! Great food! Would definitely stay here again!

We loved our stay at Hotel Contessa! The rooms we had were on the 3rd floor and overlooked the Riverwalk. It was the perfect view of the holiday lights. It was magical at night. Our young girls fell asleep each night looking at the lights. The pool area on the roof was a delight! It was warm enough during our stay in early January to utilize the pool each day. It was quiet and had plenty of places to lounge. We even brought lunch up one day. The staff was very friendly and accommodating. We appreciated their advice on places to visit and eat during our stay.

Hotel was dirty and front desk staff was unhelpful. Check your receipt at checkout as they added charges. Water is $6 in the room. There are much better options on the riverwalk
