Since this hotel reopened I have been waiting for a reason to book it. Finally, we had a concert in San Antonio and I got my wish. Unfortunately, I was disappointed. From the first phone call, with no early check-in's. Not even willing to see if the room was ready, just pretty much no early check ins. Since it was...

Our room felt like taken out anything Hemingway-related. Staff was friendly enough but nothing out of the ordinary. Information about our stay was limited. Definitely a hotel you stay for the looks! Enjoyed our stay!

We were on a 2 week road trip through Texas from El Paso to Austin, and we were lucky to stay one night at Hôtel Havana. We were not supposed to stop at San Antonio but when I found this place on Tripadvisor and Lonely Planet Texas guide, I booked a night and I did not regret it! I didn't...

Great place to stay. Sounds weird but I fell in love with the robes. Too bad they're a bit much to purchase. Elegant bar right on the riverwalk and comfy rooms with unique style. Probably the only hotel I'll stay in when visiting San Antonio.

We staid only one night in San Antonio. I didn't think much of the city.. (the River Walk is suposed to be the charming part of the town : I found it looks like St Michel in Paris (FYI I live in Paris). Meaning : very VERY touristic and very VERY cheap. But the best thing in San Antonio was...

Loved this place! We started off by getting an upgrade, because they couldn't give us the room we requested. The staff here is very accomodating and friendly. The rooms are very clean, comfortable and spacious. We loved the Restaurant Ocho which is right nextdoor. Breakfasts and dinner are excellant.

(guests August 15-18, 2014) This is a wonderfully restored historic lodging on the northern stretch of the river walk. It is away from the cookie cutter, commercial and congested section of the river walk (approx a 1/2 mile walk along the river; a bit closer to the congestion at street level). Immediately adjacent to the Tobin Center for the Performing...

This is my preferred hotel when staying in San Antonio. It's right off Riverwalk, if that is what you are into, but I prefer it because it's close to almost anything in SA. The restaurant, Ocho, is great for breakfast, lunch and dinner. But really Ocho is just a beautiful space. The bar downstairs has great cocktails and is nice...

This hotel could charge $400 a night in NYC... The bones of the hotel are great and the renovation was not overly done. The sandalwood incense wafts throughout the lobby and rooms. I was worried about the noise from other reviews but we had a room facing the parking lot. A pro tip - don't spend $17 a day on...
