“Wonderful stay at Hotel Contessa!”
Reviewed March 21, 2013

We had an excellent stay at Hotel Contessa. The staff went above and beyond! From the time we drove in with the valet service, bell man - Eddie G., front desk and restaraunt staff - Maria, George, Eddie (were just a few that I can remember), but believe me the list goes on! The location is conveniently located downtown and directly on the riverwalk. I would highly recommend!!

I thoroughly enjoyed my stay at Hotel Contessa. The rooms were nice and the staff outstanding, also the service. Ismael G. was the person to make sure we had everything for our breaks, etc. He was very cordial and very helpful. I would most definitely stay here again.

A HUGE shout out to Ismeal Gaona who supported our meting. What a gracious and friendly team member. He made our experience top notch and I am sure our group will be returning for future meetings.

The hotel is a great location right along the River Walk and the rooms are large and spacious.

Room Tip: Make sure you ask for a room on the river side. The street noise can be loud.

My family of three stayed a couple of nights during spring break and loved it. The hotel if very pretty and comfortable. We loved having a living room with a fold out couch for our 8 year old and a bedroom with a door. Great bed and quiet room. Very clean. Nice and helpful staff. The rooftop pool was incredible - pretty, elegant comfortable chairs for the adults and nice pool for the kids, plus a view. We will go back.

Room Tip: River view quiet and good view of river.

When we arrive we didn't get help with our luggage, and we thought that our entire stay will be like that but, also was the weekend of spring break and they have a lot of guests so we decide to give a chance to get better and we were not disappointed, very very good location just in the riverwalk very good restaurants and major attractions we also love the little island in the hotel. The rooms very spacious and comfortable.

My husband and I stayed at the Hotel Contessa for our anniversary, by far this is the nicest most elegant hotel on the riverwalk. We have stayed at many different hotels on the riverwalk and by far the Hotel Contessa is the best. We will no longer be staying anywhere else. Thank you for such a wonderful anniversary!

My family found this hotel last Spring Break by chance... and we have established it as our favorite little getaway spot! From the amazingly courteous staff to the insane rooftop pool, we just enjoy our stay every time! Our 5 and 7 year old girls think this hotel is just about the most awesome mini vacay we can get.... second to Disney World:) This time we stayed on the 10th floor with a city view, and it was amazing. We love to start our day with the incredible breakfast buffet, and then hit the street for family fun. The location is perfect! We don't have to use our car until its time to check out. We take the kids to the Children's Museum, the Magik Theatre, Tower of America, Mirror Maze, and Tomb Rider attractions. Everything is within comfortable walking distance for even our girls. Although, we are beginning to realize that we may stop packing our schedule so tight because our favorite thing to do is go to the rooftop pool! We feel very comfortable with our kids here:) The walls must be sound proof too, because I know our girls were hyped up and loud... but we never got any complaints... nor did we hear the kids that were staying right next door. That is a huge plus for my family!

We look forward to our bi-annual San Antonio visits so much more now:)

Room Tip: We prefer the higher floor city view as opposed to the lower floor river view. Our room directly ac...
