How to Get There
Stayed 4 nights on business. Evening check-in around 7p. Desk agent was friendly and efficient. Ended up with a relatively high floor facing east with a side view of the river walk. Hotel is within only a 5 min walk of the "busy parts" of the river walk, super convenient. Common areas of the hotel were impressively pretty, clean, and in good repair. Pool on the top floor had an awesome view of the city. Room was comfortable and clean. Bed was even more comfortable. Had the king suite and loved having the extra living space. Couldn't tell you about parking because we used valet each day. Definitely worth the money instead of having to try to find a place to park. 10/10!
We really enjoyed our stay at the Contessa everything was so clean and the staff was very friendly. I also want to thank the valet guys they worked so hard especially when we went out at night someone was always there and went above and beyond everytime. We stayed for two nights and the rooms were really spacious and accommodating especially as we are traveling with a baby. The pool was great and it was really close to everything. It is so nice to walk down to the Riverwalk and explore places like the villita and the briscoe art museum which are within walking distance. Again thank you for our wonderful stay and making great memories here in San Antonio.
Perfect location right in the river walk, bellman was friendly, helpful and knowledgeable. Front desk female was also friendly. Clean and spacious rooms. Lounge downstairs was relaxing. This place have a pool on the top floor with services. The only thing I would say is when checking in there’s limited parking in the front of the property therefore it’s a little busy and the hotel parking is a bit further so the valet is worth it!
Everyone seems to love this hotel. Our experience was very average. When we first arrived, I asked for an upgrade. The young employee disappeared behind the wall for awhile. When she returned she said "Will $XX be ok for the room?" When I said yes and was excited, she started to check us in. Luckily I clarified the rate because she then said "no that's not the rate for the room that in in addition to what you were already paying." She really didn't handle the whole situation very well, and wasn't that friendly. The whole stay we weren't greeted by Hotel Staff, and did not observe any outstanding service or friendliness from them. Except for one bellman, Francisco, he tried so hard to get us un upgrade, was super friendly and always ask us how we were.The rooms were basically like a glorified Embassy Suites so that was a disappointment too! The exception to this is the bathroom shower, it was amazing! The other positive I can say about this hotel is the location was great. It was located on the quiet part of the Riverwalk. This was a bonus because it was still on the Riverwalk, but not in the real busy part(which was just minutes away). So to sum up, the location was incredible, but the hotel did lack the expectations we had. The one bellman had mentioned something about a recent change in management so maybe that is the cause.
The Hotel is in a great location on the riverwalk and close to everything. There is an outdoor dining area with a beautiful view and if you have kids - they will love all of the ducks. The staff is very professional and helpful. The hotel is clean, pretty, and the rooms are very spacious and comfortable. I would highly recommend this hotel and will definitely be back myself.
