If you're in town for business or pleasure, choose one of the San Antonio Riverwalk hotels. You'll be close to the business district and key attractions like the beautiful Riverwalk and the Alamo. You'll also be near the McNay and San Antonio museums of art. Grab a quick lunch along the water, or hit a local favorite, like Schilo's Delicatessen for a family-style meal or a steak at Bohanan's.
Travelers seeking a funkier, artier vibe, should stay in one of the hotels in San Antonio's Southtown. Resident and visiting hipsters dig its boutiques, galleries, bars and eateries. Art- and food-lovers also flock here for authentic and innovative cuisine. Rosario's is a local institution; Feast is a new favorite. There's also plenty of history here between historic homes and other landmarks. Denizens recommend the Mission Trail.
It can be oppressively hot, even to locals, in July and August.
