"From the moment of our arrival, my wife and I were extended the most magnificant hospitality, care and courtesy. We had come to overnight, celebrating our wedding anniversary. We asked for nothing more than we booked and received more than twice what we anticipated. The hotel had few guests, the restaurants closed and yet we were feted like royalty. Friends came to dine in our room and celebrate with us. Take out was available from a nearby restaurant and a wonderful evening occurred in this finest of venues. Emma as a hotel is a jewel surrounded by diamonds who are staff. We could not have enjoyed ourselves more. And in these desperate times of the corona virus. Thank you Hotel Emma."
"The weekend's weather was lovely we walked along the riverwalk from the hotel into the center of the old town. This was our second visit to the Emma. It's a fascinating place--first class hotel housed in the old Pearl brewery. Some of the vats and machinery still grace the common rooms. A bit of history every place you look in the midst of modern luxury. The area behind the hotel hosts and Saturday and Sunday farmers' and artisans market which is worth a stop. The Kolaches there are beyond any I have had elsewhere. A couple of great coffee shops and bookstore plus miscellaneous other shops. A gem in San Antonio"
"Will not be our last stay at Hotel Emma. Our overall experience as 1st timers to stay at Hotel Emma was extraordinary! Service from ck in to ck out was 5 star. We stayed in one of the spacious suites and found the layout and decor to be splendid. Cozy, clean and well stocked with amenities. The Supper dining experience for dinner was amazing too! We will return soon!"

"I was in town for a conference and wanted a boutique hotel with character. Hotel Havana was perfect! So many great things...decor, ambience, the cute pink refrigerator stocked with fun items at reasonable prices, comfy bed, great robes ( they should rethink the high price...but I did buy one) and friendly staff. It’s walking distance (15 minutes to the Alamo) to everything and the Riverwalk is right across the street. You can watch the boats go by from Ocho (the hotel’s restaurant). They did leave ear plugs in my room because they said there was construction around the hotel but I didn’t hear anything. If my room had a kitchen, I’d move in The only criticism would be Ocho, although it is beautiful. The food was fine for one meal but didn’t really need repeat visits. They do have a cool, dark bar downstairs that is lit with red candles. I’m not marking down any stars because of the restaurant because I think it’s separate although it is on the same property. I would definitely stay here again and highly recommend Hotel Havana if you are in San Antonio and want to avoid chain hotels."
"Only stayed for one night in a king bed room and would say that the architecture is the strongest and weakest feature of the hotel. The building is charming but is old, creeks, has low shower head, and no bathroom countertop to name a few. Compared to other boutique hotels, the interior design is slightly basic with the exception of the fully loaded SMEG fridge. The amenities were simple and there could have been opportunity to show more attention to details however the service was a solid standard. The restaurant and basement bar are definitely the star of the property. Overall, was still pleasant for a one night stay. "
"My husband and I stayed here for the first time for our anniversary. It was such a fun, unique experience! The ambiance is incredible and quiet. I recommend the Hemingway suite! It’s a gorgeous, cozy room, with access to a beautiful terrace with great views. We shared some appetizers and cocktails downstairs at Ocho, with a nice view of the Riverwalk as well. It’s the perfect destination for a staycation or date night!!!"

"Opened in 2021, the Thompson San Antonio – Riverwalk is a great accommodation choice in San Antonio. The hotel is only 5km from San Antonio Amtrak Station and 11km from San Antonio Stinson Apt, giving guests a number of convenient transportation options. Keeping busy is easy, with Travis Park United Methodist Church, The Buckhorn Saloon & Museum and Korean War Memorial all nearby. At the end of a busy day, travelers can unwind and relax in the hotel or go out and enjoy the city. Guests of this San Antonio hotel can make use of the parking facilities. According to our trusted guests, the facilities at this hotel are first-rate. "

"The location is excellent, there is a small river going out, there are many restaurants by the river, the starting point of the boat tour is next to the hotel, there is a small supermarket next to it. At night, the bustling city is a bit like Lijiang, and it is very interesting to walk along the river in the drizzle. Every meal is chosen by the river, I like that feeling too much. At the breakfast, there is a duck to eat at the table. If you don't give her a bite, you are too clever little duck. It doesn't look like a hotel breakfast. The hotel is a star-rated hotel with a good standard. The elevator directly down to the river is slower, other services are good, parking in the opposite parking building, very convenient, compared to other hotels around the price is cheap, 31 dollars a day, it seems that there is an additional cost of 2 dollars."
"The hotel environment is very good, the room is also very good, the location is on the main street of the river walk, the parking is a little expensive, the valet parking is more than 40 knives, but when you leave the store, a phone call will help you drive the car to the hotel in advance. The doorway is still very convenient."
"I lived before, so I chose this one. The location did not have to say, the overall is quite satisfactory."

"This hotel is reportedly the best San Antonio has to offer. In conjunction with them making the effort to help make special occasions memorable, we decided to make a 3-night reservation. Room 371, 10/15-10/18. The price was such that we had great expectations. It has the feel of a boutique hotel. The lobby is inviting, but I honestly expected a nice floral display at this price point. This wasn’t the case. As it was, tasteful but fairly straightforward and simple. They took note of our anniversary being the reason for the visit when we made the reservation. At check-in, the clerk mentioned it without our commenting. I assumed everything was set for a nice surprise in the room which I had arranged. Nope. No champagne, no flowers, no strawberries, just a bit ol’ nothing. I thought maybe it would occur the next day. By then, the reality was setting in. This was an ordinary hotel masquerading as something more. A tip for the front desk staff, the manager, whomever. Later in life, or sooner for that matter, when you feel tempted to sound off in a self-righteous manner about people’s lack of standards or how nobody does the little bit extra or pays attention to detail, don’t. Just don’t. Other than say ‘hello’ as we passed through your lobby, you had little else to do other than collect your overpriced payment. Housekeeping did everything else. We try to be people that don’t run the staff ragged or impose with high maintenance requests ad nauseum. The anniversary was the only thing, and a bit unusual for us. In our lives, we try to give extra EVERYDAY. You had one little thing to do to make for a memory, and you couldn’t even do that. Pathetic. When we tactfully pointed out this omission at check-out, the well-meaning clerk mentioned that we might call back and see if a bit couldn’t be taken off the bill. Ugh. Missing the point and adding insult to injury. We were trying to have a special occasion, not save a few bucks. Why I feel compelled to finish this, I don’t know. It isn’t deserved. Anyhoo. COVID was conveniently used as an excuse to avoid stocking the mini-bar. Every other surface in the hotel can be touched and add risk as well, but I digress. One less obligation to carry out, I get it. The ‘heated rooftop pool’ was frigid even though the temperature outside was not. Vaguely lukewarm small jets did nothing to warm the pool. The pool is small but we knew that beforehand. The hot tub WAS hot and could fit several couples. The cushions on the chaise lounges were tattered and in the toughest of shape. Not just one, but each that we saw. Again, for prices paid at this hotel, there is no excuse for such tawdry appointments. Discount hotels do better in this regard. The rooftop bar closed early, so not much chance for a sunset cocktail. If anybody is paying attention, that’s the stuff of which memories are sometimes made. Which could, you know, bring people back as repeat customers. Even if it’s just a service element, spend the few bucks "
"We loved our stay at the Mokara. This was our second time staying at this charming little boutique hotel. For this trip, we splurged on a balcony room since we were celebrating a special occasion; we had a beautiful view of the river. Our room was luxurious and very comfortable with a king-sized bed, nice linens, a flatscreen television, and one of the largest hotel bathrooms I've ever seen - a deep jetted bathtub and separate glass shower, nice bath products. Check-in was easy. The lobby is pretty with dark, rich woods, leather couches, and a fireplace. Very warm, friendly, courteous service with lots of safety measures in place - plexiglass, staff wearing masks, and even the t.v. remote was sterilized and sealed in a bag for safety. The river is just steps away and full of great restaurants where you can dine outside. We enjoyed watching the boats go by from our balcony. The hotel also has its own restaurant on site, as well as a spa; room service was not operating when we were there. The only drawback that we noticed is the high price of parking typical of most downtown hotels, so we just parked in a nearby parking garage for about 1/4 the price. Checkout was smooth, and they even offered us chilled bottled water for the road. We love all the attention to detail and courteous service that the Mokara provides and would highly recommend this hotel if you want to enjoy a relaxing weekend getaway."
"My wife and I evacuated to San Antonio from our hometown because of Hurricane Laura. I wanted to find a highly rated smaller hotel for our time away from home. TripAdvisor guided me to Mokara. It was awesome! Staff was superbly trained and worked to make our stay peaceful and comforting. Room was beautiful and quiet with a view of the San Antonio Riverwalk. Restaurant onsite was very good and reasonable. Bed was conducive to a good night’s sleep. Shower was one of the best in any hotel I’ve ever stayed. We survived the hurricane in a fantastic hotel around wonderful people. Love this hotel."

"Arrived Friday afternoon and checked into room and got settled. Staying for a wedding on Saturday/Sunday and a local event on Friday. After our arrival and having been assured at every opportunity we were staying at a Luxury Hotel (and it is not our first stay at this hotel having spent our 25th anniversary in the Presidential Suite under different management), we emerged to grab our car or a taxi to travel about a mile to an Octoberfest event. The line for valet was backed up and at least 4 cars were ahead of us. We asked for a taxi and we’re waiting 15 -20 minutes as they kept telling us they were almost here. Only 1 car had arrived from Valet. We decided to walk, which we did and arrived a little overheated on the warm afternoon. (We discovered the next day the small lot where cars are double parked and must be shuffled to gain access and then drive them around several blocks due to 1 way streets and some streets are 1 lane so, the Valets are further detained. At $43/day parking fee for self park or valet, best to leave your car at home. We Called Uber after that. And self parked, which was a nightmare as only 1 space was left for my SUV and a light pole was on and in one side of the space. Difficult.). We came back to the St Anthony on Uber. Visited with bride and groom, then her parents and back to our room for the evening. Plenty of plugs somewhat hidden on side of bedside table. Plenty of plugs and USB outlets at desk, hidden in panels. Towels were very nice, bathroom was well appointed. Water flow rates were substandard for a luxury hotel. We had to ASK for a coffee unit for inroom coffee at our leisure. They brought a small cup Keurig, with morning coffee expected at any gas station. Decaf was luxury standard. No refrigerator or microwave. It appeared to me one must call room service for ice. I saw none on floor. I think they would point to lack of space for these things, but it seemed there was plenty of space with special drawers and closet unit. Pool area is lovely, but no shade during day until late in afternoon or very early morning unless one springs for a cabana. Party venues and lobby are very nice. Lobby has been and remains World Class. The bar has been moved to the formerly private St Anthony Club Bar. The Club dining rooms have been made into ballroom type venues, but the old Bar remains with its woodwork. Many South Texas business deals must have been heard by these walls.... as the St Anthony Club was for businessmen. They were full just about everyday for lunch, if not dinner. What used to be a bar, and maybe a breakfast area is on street side of lobby. One could sit and watch the park and have an afternoon beverage. Drinks were served across the Lobby area. Small tables were in the porch area against the walls for 2. Point is the waitstaff were able to efficiently access the tables for prompt good service. Now large tables for breakfast restrict waitstaff and service is slo"
"Great experience at the St. Anthony Hotel in San Antonio last week. Beautiful renovation by Starwood in 2015 of a magnificent historic gem. Warm, welcoming service at every turn, from the moment we were greeted for valet parking to the front desk agent to the room-service staff and pool attendants. Employees were scrupulous about wearing masks and maintaining distance, which was easy because the hotel’s layout is so spacious. Platinum status led to Suite Night Award upgrade (2 queen beds plus living room with sofabed, separated by a full-height wall but not a door; Keurig and fridge available upon request, and free buckets of ice have to be requested through guest services). Platinums receive $20 per person daily breakfast credit for up to 2 people. Also, this is one of those rare Category 5 hotels in the Luxury Collection. Walked three blocks to the Riverwalk for outdoor dinner at Casa Rio on Commerce Street; hotel dining options were indoor restaurant or room service. Despite an autumn cold front, the rooftop pool felt great: pool heater worked well, and the pool is much bigger than the website photos convey. Pool had been drained and cleaned that day, so the water was crystal clear. Lots of room to swim laps, which was good because the gym is closed for the duration of COVID. Brought our own pillowcases as a precaution, but the room was spotless, and the ceilings are high, with good ventilation. We chose to travel during the week to avoid crowds and were able to keep up with work using the hotel's good wifi, though (strangely) there is no password required, so we connected through a VPN for added security (as always when we're using travel wifi). When we departed after our wonderfully late checkout on Friday, we could see a steady stream of people checking in. We discovered a cozy library area and empty veranda on the second floor. Enjoyed every minute of this mini-vacation, including Frette robes, classical music on the Bose when we entered the room, and ordering hot chocolate at bedtime. Hunkering down at home now, de-stressed and re-charged."
"We love the bar in the St. Anthony. It is beautiful, elegant but not stuffy and it’s where the idea for Southwest Airlines was created. The staff here always makes us feel welcome and special and makes spectacular drinks…Philip, one of the fantastic bartenders makes fabulous cocktails, conversation and is just an overall gem of a person. Every time we fly into San Antonio for a visit we make sure we come to this lounge and look forward to seeing Philip and drinking his cocktails! Note: my Husband says Philip makes the best old fashions!"

"My husband and I had moved from another hotel on the Riverwalk in San Antonio to this one and couldn’t have been happier about our choice. Vincent was so kind and accommodating and showed us around the hotel and gave us some room options. The rooms were spacious and the view was beautiful. The hotel backed onto the Riverwalk so we were able to walk down to our favorite restaurants in a matter of minutes. The pool was absolutely gorgeous. Very clean and relaxing. We truly couldn’t have been happier with our stay. The price was right and the hotel was fantastic. We had great interactions with all of the staff. Everyone was so friendly. This will be our go to spot from now on when we visit San Antonio."
"We booked this hotel after reading different reviews on Tripadvisor. We should have listened to the the average or less reviews. First we arrived at 7:00 p.m. and was told our room wasn't ready. Then they said they would call us when it was, didn't. After 2 hours which means it was 9:00 pm we went back and was told our room was ready. We were surprised as we entered the room to find it very nice and thought well ok they were having spring break and were busy. In the morning we saw that the room hadn't been dusted in who knows how long, all the dressers were very dusty. When we checked in we were told that house keeping isn't done for guests not staying less than a week, we were staying 7 nights. We had to make arrangements ofter 3 days for our room to be cleaned and garbage to be taken. We hoped the dust would be cleaned at this time. When we return the day they cleaned most things were good but the dust was still on all the dressers. On our first day we went to the lower lever on the Riverwalk and used the restrooms. Wow, very dirty and no paper towels. couple of days later we used these restrooms again and they were still not clean and no paper towels etc. Again we checked and the restrooms had been locked and unable to use. The restaurant was closed due to remodeling. The valet parking was so busy that you had to wait quite a while to get your car. Don't think I would go back to Hotel Contessa if I were to return to San Antonio."
"The comparison of the decisions made by multiple stores is very worthwhile! The rooms are large and clean, and the price is high. There is a restaurant on the ground floor of the hotel, and you can walk directly to the river walk out of the hotel. The downside is that wifi is too slow"

"Booked thru trip advisor for $75 plus fees for one night. Check out 12noon. Check in 3pm. Can check in early for $20. Check in was swift. Free parking. Free Wi-Fi. Free basic breakfast 6am-9am. Mini fridge and microwave in room. ATM and computer in lobby. Billy checked us in and was very pleasant and welcoming. Was very quick and easy. They want a credit card to put on file when you check in. Room was standard but comfortable. Bed slept well and was very clean. A/C unit very powerful and kept me nice and cool. No funny odors and the carpet was clean. We didn’t eat breakfast or use the Wi-Fi. I would stay again. Hope this review helps your decision to stay. (See photos)"
"We arrived early to check in. The desk clerk asked us to come back in about 45 mins. & our room will be ready. We told her we were going to get our cell phone fixed. She directed us to the closes cell phone store. The lobby was closed. She also let us use the restroom before we left for cell phone store. We appreciated that since we had been on the road for awhile. Room was nice spacious & clean. Nice stay."
"Staff was really friendly, and the environment was family friendly. It was peaceful and quiet. We had a really fun time. It’s not to close to the town square and is in good condition. The pool has shade and it was an overall great experience."
