All suites with floor-to-ceiling windows, free Wi-Fi, a rooftop pool and an onsite Aveda spa make the non-smoking Spanish-style Hotel Contessa a royal deal with our guests. The 12-story hotel has been delighting guests with its Mediterranean-style décor and atrium with four-story view since 2005. The 265 stylish suites feature separate bedrooms, living rooms with sofa beds, granite-top desks, flat-panel LCD TVs with premium channels and in-room movies, free Wi-Fi, free local calls and marble bathrooms. Head up to the rooftop for panoramic city views and a workout in the 24-hour fitness center, a dip in the heated pool and Jacuzzi or a relaxing massage in the Aveda spa. The on-site restaurant provides dining in or out on the terrace overlooking the Paseo del Rio. The bar serves up an extensive wine list, cocktails, two happy hours and live weekend entertainment. The hotel also features a 24-hour business center, limited room service and a gift shop. Park your car with the valet for an additional fee. The Hotel Contessa is nine miles from San Antonio International Airport. Situated in the heart of downtown, no wheels are needed with The Alamo three blocks away, the Henry B. Gonzalez Convention Center two blocks east and the Observation Deck at the Tower of the Americas less than a 10-minute walk away. The Negotiator would like to propose a toast to the Hotel Contessa's graceful style, extra-special amenities and accommodating downtown San Antonio location.
