Located on the San Antonio River Walk within the shell of the historic 19th-century L. Frank Saddlery Building, the Mokara Hotel and Spa is a luxurious refuge just steps from the city’s top tourist draw. State pride echoes throughout the hotel with work by Texas artists hanging in guest rooms and elaborate saddles recalling the property's past in common spaces.
Fully renovated in 2013, guest accommodations have high ceilings and lots of natural light with new bedding on wrought iron beds, jetted marble tubs and flat screen televisions. Many rooms include river-view balconies and all have complimentary Wi-Fi.
The AAA 4-Diamond Ostra restaurant, Greek for “Oyster,” serves international seafood dishes with indoor and outdoor seating options along the San Antonio River. Mokara Spa, awarded four stars by Forbes Travel Guide, is an urban oasis with 18 private treatment rooms, a menu inspired by nature and private sanctuaries for men and women. Guests can request rooms on the spa floor for direct access to the facilities and the ability to walk across the hall in robes when it’s time for a massage. The hotel also includes a rooftop pool and small café with views of downtown and barges floating on the river.
