“Great location, grand building, OK room”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed November 20, 2012

We stayed at the St Anthony for two nights as our first stop on a short US trip. We'd read both good and not-so-good reviews here so I think we were prepared for a mixed experience.

On the positive side the building really is a grand old charmer. The architectural details in the formal lobby area really make this building a photogenic standout. Our room, a standard, also had some charming period details such as classic black and white bathroom tiling and four poster bed. The bed itself was very comfortable and I assume relatively new. Bath towels and toiletries were fine, but nothing exceptional, and the room overall was quite clean. We didn’t use the bar or dining options, but the bar looked welcoming enough. The business centre was pretty basic, consisting of a couple of computers and printers on desks – but that was all we needed to check in for our onward flights without a fuss. The staff were polite and professional and always able to answer our questions.

On the not so positive side, our standard room seemed pretty crowded. The carpet looked old and worn, and was almost threadbare on the heavy traffic areas. New carpeting would spruce the rooms up instantly. Unfortunately, sound seemed to carry through the walls, so if you happen to have a room near some rowdy folk (as we did the first night) you will be hearing conversations quite clearly late at night. While visually stunning, the lobby area does smell of heavily scented deodoriser or similar, which is curious at least.

One of the St Anthony’s strengths is location. The hotel fronts Travis Park, and there are handy bus options almost at the door. We saved money on airport transfers by taking the no. 5 bus route to the airport on Navarro St for $1.10. Very close by there is a Walgreen’s, as well as restaurants and a few choices for breakfast. Sites such as the San Antonio Riverwalk and the Alamo are also within easy walking distance.

Room Tip: High rooms facing Travis Park have lovely views.

this hotel was once visited by such people as john wayne, princess grace kelly, arnold schwarznagger and others. dates back to 1906 when luxury was the keynote word. very ornate, rooms are simple but king size beds beyond belief. located within two blocks of the river walk and close to local highways. you can walk to most down town attractions via the river walk or upper streets. could be a little pricey but okay to splurge once in awhile. had a nice two night stay.

Room Tip: they charge to park in their facilities. breakfast items are individually priced, makes it a little...

Loved the lobby and other areas in the hotel. Staff was wonderful. The rooms are just to dark, bathrooms in bad shape, tubs look dirty and creepy, carpet nasty looking, no electrical outlets, old TV's.

My boyfriend and I visited the St. Anthony for his 31st bday. WE LOVED IT - of course I read my fellow yelper's, and Trip Advisor reviews, inquired directly with a hotel agent, and did a bit of research. We chose a historical hotel as used our excursion to take a beautiful stroll into San Antonio’s past and enjoy its romantic charm. The hotel is a lovely antique, rumored to have some guests that never left :) built in 1909, we were fortunate enough to get a mini-tour from an insightful employee who confirmed the most of the 'peculiar activity' occurs on the 5th and 6th floors. We decided to engage in a late night exploration and check 'em out, it was really fun! Nothing suspicious to report, however, the energy is much 'thicker' on the referenced floors.The hallways reminded me of the 'red rum' scene form The Shining. The rooms were a bit small, but I expected that after the reviews - I enjoyed the bath tub. CVS is on the corner which is great for late night snacks. If an old, historic, beautiful hotel, just off the river hotel tickles your fancy then this might just be the place for you!

Room Tip: I wouldn't choose this hotel if I planned to spend a lot of time in the room, they are small.

The carpet in the hallways and room was old and nasty. The room was very small and the furniture was cracked,scratched and looked like it came from a garage sale. Parking on site was not available for my vehicle so the valet took it somewhere and didnt see it untill I checked out a day early. Several blocks to the river and walking past dirty dark alleys is a little scary.
