We are from Austin and had some family visiting from out of town. We decided to all go on a weekend trip to San Antonio just for one night to walk around the River Walk and see the Alamo. Some else had picked the hotel- but I was quite pleased with his decision! When we first arrived we had to go a round about way to find the entrance to the Hotel Contessa because of all the one way streets. The valet gave us a ticket and we checked in. The hotel is very nice- it was elegant and inviting. We arrived early, but we were checked in easily and even upgraded. We ran into a man and his dog- turns out Hotel Contessa is very dog friendly. Our room was gorgeous. Essentially each room is a suite, with a nicely appointed living room area and bar, bathroom, and separate bedroom. Our view was overlooking the river- a nice touch. We checked out the rooftop pool- it is not very big and there were a lot of kids splashing about. The fitness room is on the same level- not very big but just right. We did go out to dinner that night and so we called ahead to the valet like the front desk recommended. Unfortunately 10 minutes was not enough time to call ahead and we ended up waiting another 10 minutes downstairs- this resulted in us being late for our dinner reservation. The valet manager was the only one who seemed to be concerned for us, while the actual valets didn't seem to be in a rush or anything. They just stood there and looked at us. This was our main disappointment with Hotel Contessa. We did enjoy a nice brunch the next morning in the restaurant downstairs. They had a nice selection of omelets, pancakes, fruit, oatmeal, etc. We'd love to come back again.
