The Spanish Colonial architecture of the Omni La Mansion del Rio gives the upscale hotel a relaxed hacienda feel. The vibe is carried on in one of the city's best hotel restaurants, Las Canarias, as well as mariachi performances at the comfortable and lively heated outdoor pool. Some guests may miss the presence of an on-site spa and fitness center, but these are found just across the River Walk, within five minutes’ walking distance, at its sister hotel, the Mokara Hotel & Spa.
Feels like walking into a charming old Spanish Colonial home
Be prepared to see some outstanding architectural features as you enter this hotel by the San Antonio River Walk -- arched doorways lead to the hotel lobby and a winding wrought iron staircase. And the rooms themselves offer the same feel, with antique-style furnishings, exposed brick, and beamed ceilings.
The ground level patio pool, located just beyond the lobby in the lush courtyard, is lively (and sometimes loud). Guests can catch a mariachi band, a limbo contest, or a family-friendly movie here, depending on the night.
