Hotel Contessa: Our Gorgeous San Antonio Stay


It was our first time visiting San Antonio, and the first time I'd been in Texas since the 4th grade! So to say I was excited to see a part of the US I haven't really traveled would be an understatement.

I knew that I wanted to stay near the Riverwalk in San Antonio because that seems to be the place that everyone talks about and is a "must-see" in the city. For those of you that don't know what the River Walk is, it's a beautiful walkway throughout San Antionio with restaurants, shops, and gorgeous hotels (like Hotel Contessa)!

So, with Hotel Contessa's tagline being "Luxury Suites on the Riverwalk", my attention was caught. And they truly live by their slogan - gorgeous views of the Riverwalk right out my window and easy access to explore the city. Each evening during our stay, Michael and I would end the evening on the patio facing the Riverwalk. We would watch all the people take boats, walk along the river, and even saw a couple get married! It was quite the experience.

Our room was spacious, clean, and recently renovated. It was only the two of us, but four people could have easily fit comfortably in our suite. Our bathroom had a gorgeous, walk-in shower and large sink with natural light streaming in. It made getting ready each morning more luxurious than my darkly lit bathroom in Atlanta!

Our suite also had a coffee machine, tea, a small fridge, dining area, and large living room. Since I was working from home during the stay, the extra space was lovely. Usually, I would work at the desk next to the bed, but it was super helpful to have an entire room to get my work done.

The staff at Hotel Contessa was amiable and helpful during our stay. They always made sure we had everything we needed and more.


One of my favorite amenities at the hotel was the rooftop pool. It was a hot summer weekend, so it was super crowded but still enjoyable to sit and relax. I don't blame everyone for wanting to spend their Saturday afternoon up there! You had gorgeous views of the city and could even see the Alamo.

Overall, we had a great stay with Hotel Contessa, and if I'm ever in San Antonio again, I'll want to stay there. If you're interested in learning more about the hotel you can find their information here:
