From Texas Hill Country Getaways to Historic Gems

There's no question that San Antonio has some stunning hotels, many of which are also affordable, at least when it comes to pure luxury.

To get a true taste of Texas hospitality, not to mention beauty, the JW Marriott San Antonio Hill Country Resort & Spa tops the list. Located in the Texas Hill Country, with gorgeous views as far as the eye can see, a full-service spa, excellent restaurant and enough amenities to keep everyone in the family happy, it just doesn't get much better than this!

For a more intimate atmosphere, fall in love with the historic Hotel Havana, located in the thick of the downtown excitement, just a stone's throw from the new Tobin Center for the Performing Arts. This boutique hotel is both elegant and unique, with a sexy speak-easy type bar in the basement and, according to critics, one of the most gorgeous glass restaurants in the world. 

For those who appreciate urban class, the new Hotel Emma, located at the Pearl Brewery, is one of the most ingeniously designed hotels in San Antonio - merging both historic style with modern chic. They also know how to cater to their guests' needs like few others do.
