Everyone loves San Antonio. And everyone wants to stay as close to the Riverwalk and downtown as possible. But that crush of everyone gets tedious and when a big convention is in town (often), the Riverwalk becomes less than enjoyable. North of downtown, next to the Tobin Center auditorium, we found a new favorite place to stay - the Hotel...

My three year old grandson and I spent this past Monday night at the charming Hotel Havana. Overall, our the hotel proved to be lovely, but staffing is either superb...or awful. The building is beautifully restored. The in-room refrigerator was a handy place to keep our water bottles chilled. The location on the Museum Reach of the Riverwalk is perfect....

Recently stayed here for a few nights on a business trip. Overall, it was a great stay. I didn't find it to be loud or the creeky floors to be anything but charming. The owners have definitely kept the authentic feel to the property. The bed and pillows were the most comfortable I've experience at any hotel. The staff was...

Stopped by at the recommendation of a friend. Very cool place to have a cocktail. Very interview with a vampire! Don't like the dark? Take your cocktail to the patio and face the riverwalk! The dinner looked great at ocho too, didn't indulge.

I love good design. And I have to give Liz Lambert and Bunkhouse Group major props. Her hotels are always good design, plus they all give out super cool vibes. You know… like you are finally in the cool kids club, but you really aren’t. The staff was always polite, but some training was missing. In the morning, a beautiful...

We stayed here during Fiesta for one night. When we arrived, the front desk staff seemed disinterested and lacked a welcoming demeanor. Two of the employees were immersed in their own conversation while the young man attended to us. He was really soft spoken but polite enough. Our room was very charming with a large stocked refrigerator and cozy bathroom....

There were so many things about Hotel Havana that we liked, the charming patio by the San Antonio River, the prompt room service, the comfortable bed, but unfortunately we will never return there. The walls are paper thin and the floors, the stairs outside the room, the bed, all creek extremely loud with the least movement. Every step you (or...

Wanted to show my Floridian boyfriend the wonderful experience that is the Riverwalk and Downtown San Antonio. Picked the Hotel Havana because it was located on the Riverwalk, albeit a little farther away from most of the activity. This meant we had a mostly quiet, peaceful walk down to the more populated areas, which was very enjoyable and quite romantic....

My husband and I were attending a show at the Tobin Center so I looked for a place near there to stay overnight. We both loved it! The staff is fantastic and the ambience is old world charm. The attention to detail, the decorating, the rooms are all perfect. It is an easy and pretty 15 minute or so walk...

I loved this hotel. Each room is a bit different! Beautiful old wooden floors. Antiques in the rooms. The mini bar is jam packed, and is a SMEG refrigerator that really adds to the ambience. This was a completely different experience than I have ever had in a hotel and wish I could have stayed longer!
