My husband and I stayed in this historical hotel while on a child-free drive-about around Texas. We walked into the room and our jaws dropped. The decor was elaborate and authentic, complete with wooden sloping floors, where you could have a fun game of marbles, if you had your children with you or had a few in your pocket. Very... More

It is a really nice and cozy hotel, old style, really beautiful, great atmosphere and it´s location can´t be any better. My wife and I enjoyed the stay for the weekend, it´s so close to the river walk witch makes it wonderfull!! If you are looking for something different to the big chain hotels, this is a great option!!

We stayed here for the weekend, as a gift from some friends. The Fairmount has an amazing history and a really great atmosphere. Derek, the valet on duty, was awesome! I cannot say enough about how helpful and friendly Derek was during our trip. The rooms are decorated in antiques and the courtyard is really beautiful. The Fairmount is not... More

We booked this trip through The Fairnount before reading the reviews on Trip Advisor. We were fairly concerned after reading reviews but our stay could not have been more perfect! Upon arrival, we were informed our room had been upgraded to a King Suite with a beautiful view. The room was lovely and very clean with no issues. The bed... More

Our stay in San Antonio was a delight. Our room couldn't have been more luxurious for the price. I think much of the hotel has undergone an extensive renovation.Our standard poodles were accommodated and the owners were extremely gracious. It was stormy and being close to Christmas we were lucky to find the place. We will stay again and the... More

Our room was dirty, had a cracked window, and had a severe slant from the outside wall to the door (let's just say that when my wife stood at the window, and I stood at the other wall in the "room", we were the same height. The drywall had cracks, the bedspread and curtains were from the 1970's, and the... More

Great room for the price! I stayed in junior suite. Room and bed was very comfortable. Excellent location! Walked right across the street to the convention center. Close to Riverwalk and excellent restaurants in King William district.

The Fairmount is a quaint hotel - not very large, and no two rooms are the same. BUT they do need some updating. On initial inspection of my room, it was clean, unique and comfortable, but for the price I was expecting something more. The room had a nice French door balcony and the morning sun was lovely, but the... More

One of the most charming and beautiful hotels I've ever stayed in. The decor was absolutely gorgeous. The staff was more than friendly and very helpful. I would stay there again next time I come back to San Antonio. The walk to the Riverwalk was short and very convenient and there is a unique shopping area across the street with... More

We stayed here while attending a conference center; it's a 10-minute walk to the large conference center. While others stayed in sterile anonymous noisy chain hotels, we were at the elegant and charming Fairmount. The landing areas as well as the rooms are decorated in genuine and tasteful antiques. The beds and bathrooms are also charming but highly functional and... More
