LOUSY EXPERIENCE at the rooftop bar. Made reservations for a birthday celebration. So disappointed.... Arrogant and rather unfriendly waiter, overpriced, drab environment. Heaters poorly spaced. We left after one round to go someplace else.

I recently traveled to San Antonio to celebrate my birthday, visit Riverwalk and the Alamo. In my search for a restaurant I stumbled upon The Fairmont Hotel. I ended up sitting at the downstairs bar and meeting a nice bartender (Philip) who graciously waited on me. He was very kind, attentive and I enjoyed my delicious meal along with a few of his delicious cocktails. I actually returned the following evening. And not to mention, I have met a friend for life. Thanks again!! Douglas/from Virginia.

Philip is great! He made me a delicious cocktail using our favorite local distillery’s Rakia (Dorcol). He named it after me... a Mark Sour!!! The rooftop oyster bar is amazing. Alaska king crab legs with oysters from Prince Edward Island, New Brunswick & Massachusetts. Excellent craft cocktails, nice cool breeze, and views of downtown.

I got a room for the Valentine's Day and the TMEA convention. The room is quaint. I liked it, but I am a fan of historic hotels and places. I loved the idea of the sitting areas on the floors. There are a few people who made our stay quite special. Jauny was there to ensure we had everything we needed. Maren was at the bar and was very friendly who made excellent drinks. The bar was fast and efficient. I had an issue in the room, and Johnny was in the room in less than 2 minutes to help me. The hotel is beautiful. The location cannot be better. Please note that this hotel is older being built in 1906 with being the heaviest object moved when it was moved from its prior location. I am happy they saved it. It is a jewel.

We loved the feel of the hotel. I always like staying in unique and old places. Everything was clean,fresh, and the view from the roof was amazing. George was sweet and very knowledgeable. We will definitely be back.
