San Antonio, home to the NBA’s famous San Antonio Spurs, offers the visitor countless attractions to visit. Among these is the Sea World San Antonio, the Alamo mission (where the Battle of Alamo occurred), and the Paseo del Rio River Walk where one can relax as they float through the network of canals.

Once you arrive in San Antonio you’ll be looking for a place to stay. Accommodations are no problem since the city boasts a wide selection of hotels to choose from.

Excellent hotels abound near the River Walk and the Alamo which is San Antonio’s main business district. Recommended is the Westin River Walk Hotel which is an identified Gold Lister by the Conde Nast Traveler. There is also Holiday Inn River Walk and the Marriott San Antonio River Center to choose from. All these are proximate to the Market Square and La Villita.

The Omni La Mansion del Rio and the Menger Hotel offers guests a taste of the old Spanish colonial south. The Menger Hotel dates back to 1859, the year it started its operations.

Additional hotels to check out are the Sheraton Gunter as well as the Wyndham St Anthony hotels. These, like the rest, are located a stone’s throw away from the main tourist destinations.
