San Antonio Hotels that Provide the Perfect Romantic Atmosphere and Amenities

Technically, San Antonio isn't known as the city of romance, but it should be! The river walk is an iconic destination for romance. It's impossible to say how many marriage proposals and marriages have taken place on its beautiful serpentine banks and arched stone bridges.

There are several hotels that are built for romance, and now some newly renovated luxury hotels that can serve as the ideal backdrop for a getaway for you and that special someone. If you're looking for a full-service resort with access to just about everything you could imagine, such as a luxury spa and fine dining, La Cantera Resort and Spa should make the top of your list as it did ours. Their new spa is unlike anything you've ever seen, including treatments dedicated to the ultimate zen experience. 

Eilan Hotel Resort and Spa is an Italian lover's dream with marble floors, columns and a giant pool complete with comfy cabanas. Plus their in-house restaurant, Sustenio, is run by one of the best chefs in the city. Make sure to ask for an exclusive tasting menu for an unforgettable night with your honey!
