Feel Like Royalty Next Time You Stay in San Antonio

San Antonio is growing and changing rapidly, and the tourist industry is doing its best to keep up. Some of the newer hotels are particularly inclined to offer guests a luxury experience while still maintaining the laid back essence that defines this city. 

Hotel Emma is a perfect example of this. Recently opened, this hotel was once a brewery. They did their best to maintain the building, seamlessly integrating its assets into a uniquely curated luxury. This is the kind of superlative destination you might find in Europe. 

For the ultimate wow factor, the Eilan Hotel Resort and Spa is hard to beat. You can see this lovely gem sitting on top of the hill from the highwy. In the midst of a collection of Italian-style apartments and commercial spaces, the Eilan Hotel offers guests luxury in every sense of the word, from the marble lobby to the extravagant pool and top-notch dining and spa experiences. Although it's a little north of the city, it's worth the extra drive. 

If you like staying downtown, The St. Anthony is a great choice for guests who appreciate elegant architecture and excellent service, but frankly, you can't go wrong at any of these 10 fantastic hotels!
