More Room Types

The all-suite Hotel Contessa was built in 2005 and has since been delighting visitors with its Spanish-influenced décor, inspired by San Antonio’s rich Spanish heritage. Guests are reminded of Barcelona at the original colorful and romantic hotel on the San Antonio River Walk. Recipient of the AAA Four Diamond Award and TripAdvisor’s Certificate of Excellence, Hotel Contessa is the darling of San Antonio’s luxury hotels.

Exposed brick, floor-length mirrors and vibrant colors characterize the suites, which all have private bedrooms and sofa beds in the living room to make room-sharing easy for weekends away with friends or family. Floor-to-ceiling windows show views of downtown San Antonio and in-room, high-speed Internet access is free.

Get a taste of Spain with tapas and paella at Las Ramblas, the on-site restaurant with an exhibition-style kitchen. Meals can be taken on the patio in nice weather to enjoy the natural setting and people-watching. Sun-lovers can venture to the rooftop pool, surrounded by lounge chairs. The 1,700-square-foot Woodhouse Day Spa is also on the roof with an array of treatments that pamper guests. Indulge in a couples massage before a swim in the heated pool.
