San Antonio International Airport, the Alamo, and the King William Historical District are only 15-minutes or less away, while River Walk, Henry B. Gonzalez Convention Center, and Alamodome are a 5-minute walk away.
The 265 suites at Hotel Contessa range in size but all feature separate living rooms and bedrooms with contemporary, southwestern-inspired decor, two 37-inch flat-screen TVs, and free Wi-Fi. The cozy, spacious rooms have river or city views and feature a stocked minibar for extra convenience.
The hotel features a rooftop pool area with a Jacuzzi, modern lounge seating, and large windows that look over San Antonio's cityscape. On the top floor is a luxury day spa that offers a relaxing oasis for those in need of a massage or unique treatment. Guests seeking more action have access to a spacious fitness center with updated equipment and even more dramatic city views.
Enjoy the attractive and modern dining areas inside the hotel or al fresco beside the river, plus a hip lobby bar and poolside bar.
