Destination hotel in nice area, but kind of far from downtown if that is what you want.

I just spent a week in San Antonio for a work conference(got back last night). Stayed at the Marriott Rivercenter so never strayed far from the river walk. If that is what you want to do...it was the perfect location. Can walk everywhere. Hotel is inside of a mall. Can walk from the hotel through the mall and cross the street to the Alamo. It's not plush I would say. Standard Marriott with lots of conferences there. But the location was great.


Went to the Esquire twice for drinks. Drinks were amazing and place had a really cool vibe. Oldest bar on the riverwalk.





The downstairs bar of the Esquire is really cool looking as well...


If you want to be a total tourist and do the boat tours on the riverwalk...do them at night. Boats less crowded and the weather is much nicer. Plus...riverwalk just looks cooler with all the lights at night imo.

We also ate at the Charthouse one night...the restaurant at the top of the Tower of Americas. Revolving restaurant. Was pretty cool. Pricey...but the food was good. If you want to eat for cheaper at the top of the tower.....go to their bar at the top for happy hour (4:30-7). Drinks/food wasn't bad price wise. You can get full off an order of truffle fries and brisket sliders for like $11. And...if you go to the bar or restaurant you don't have to pay the normal $12 admission to the observation deck at the top of the tower.


Didn't go to Hotel Emma....but we met people there that highly recommended it and said it was worth taking an uber/lyft to if you wanted to get away from the riverwalk area.

Italian- Sorrento's (upscale) Florios (pizza and sandys) Dough (upscale pizza) Main Street pizza is closer to downtown
Burgers- most people say Chris madrids which is near downtown but I prefer chesters, whataburger if you don't know about it (living in Lafayette you prolly do)
Mesican- Blanco cafe on blanco road for enchiladas, taco house for cheap and very good breakfast tacos, Paloma blanco or or sol Luna for more upscale Hispanic/white person mesican food. Taco haven is downtown and has good tacos. La Fonda on main is also upscale and near downtown.

TBH San Antone does not have that many great food choices but it's good enough for me. The place above should get you through it but I can give you more if you need it.

Don't sleep on JW Marriott, at least for a night, I have never lived outside San Antonio and I spend vacations there myself.

Sleep- Hotel Contessa

Stayed there in Sept, great hotel and on the Riverwalk. It was an easy walk to just about anywhere downtown.

Food: Mi Tierra Cafe
LINK
Solid Mexican food, not a far walk from Hotel Contessa

Tre Trattoria
LINK
Get the Caprese, with the housemade Mozzarella. The pastas were great as well.

I'm itching to go to SA and stay at the Hotel Havana. Started by the Bunkhouse group out of Austin. Pretty cool boutique vibe, and right off the riverwalk.
