Thankfully, the San Antonio airport is centrally-located, so that many of the best hotels in the city are located within 20 minutes. Although you will certainly want to plan around the typical morning and evening rush hour traffic, most of the time you can get around with ease.
Hotel Emma, a true Pearl at the Pearl Brewery is the newest kid on the block. This boutique hotel, located right along HWY 281 is easy to get to and simply a fantastic choice whether you're here for business or pleasure. You can dine in at Supper, their veggie-centric restaurant, or find a dozen other great choices within walking distance. With access to a mini upscale grocery store in the hotel, coffee shops, retail shops and more, it's a destination in and of itself.
For a very affordable choice with easy access to the highway as well as downtown delights, you'll love the Marriott Plaza. It's a lush oasis in the middle of the urban landscape. Located next to the hip Southtown arts district, river walk and La Villita, it's a fun option for travelers and comes with your very own pet peacocks!
For even more immediate access to the airport, don't overlook the Hilton Garden Inn San Antonio Airport or the Courtyard by Marriott near North Star Mall.
