Oyster Review Summary

Photos and Review by Oyster.com Investigators

Pros

  • Large indoor/outdoor pool with lounge chairs
  • Modern fitness center with Cybex equipment
  • Free and abundant parking
  • Free shuttle to airport
  • Kid-friendly and pet-friendly
  • Well-equipped for business travelers
  • Flat-screen TVs in every room

Cons

  • 10 miles from downtown San Antonio
  • Not walking distance to area attractions
  • Generic in style and decor
  • Daily Wi-Fi fee (free for Select Guest Loyalty program members)

Bottom Line

The 19-story Omni San Antonio Hotel at the Colonnade is an upper-middle-range option located 10 miles from downtown. Though the location isn't central, this 326-room property has both an outdoor and indoor pool, modern fitness center, and is a short drive to Six Flags Fiesta Texas and Sea World. While rooms are spacious -- and there's even a kids'-themed suite -- decor is generic and could use an update.

Oyster Hotel Review

 Scene

A large, high-rise hotel with a polished lobby and bar

Located alongside a highway, the Omni at the Collonade is 10 miles from downtown San Antonio and surrounded by office buildings and parking lots. Despite the isolated location, this hotel offers considerable value; a property with similar amenities downtown would be more expensive. The modern lobby includes a shop -- stocked with toiletries, snacks, and drinks -- a bar, comfortable seating areas, and a small aquarium. Guests might appreciate the refreshing (and free!) fresh fruit juice offered in the lobby daily.

 Location

Located 10 miles from downtown San Antonio, right off Interstate-10, in a commercial district

The Omni San Antionio Hotel at the Colonnade is located in the center of a commercial district, surrounded by highways and businesses. While some restaurants are a short walk away, the major attractions of San Antonio are not within walking distance. This hotel might be a convenient choice for business travelers seeking proximity to the San Antonio Airport.

  • 15-minute drive to San Antonio International Airport
  • 16-minute drive to Tower of the Americas
  • 17-minute drive to the Alamo
  • 17-minute drive to the King William Historical District
  • 18-minute drive to Henry B. Gonzalez Convention Center
  • 18-minute drive to La Villita park
  • 20-minute drive to the River Walk
  • 20-minute drive to the Alamodome
  • 25-minute drive to Sea World San Antonio

 Rooms

Rooms are generic in style, but comfortable and clean

There are 326 guest rooms and suites spread over 19 floors at the Omni San Antonio Hotel. Decor is generic and some curtains and wallpaper feel dated, but beds are comfortable and the pillow menu -- which includes foam and feather pillows -- is a nice extra. Rooms average 400 to 425 square feet, and while some offer views of San Antonio in the distance, others look out over the surrounding commercial area and Texas hill country.

  • Some guests complain rooms are not of standard Omni quality
  • San Antonio is seen in the distance from city view rooms
  • Some rooms have views of surrounding commercial area and highways
  • Flat-screen TVs
  • Stocked mini-bar
  • Coffeemaker with free coffee and tea
  • Free newspaper
  • Kids' Fantasy Suite available with twin beds, bean bag chairs, board games, and bright colors

 Features

A large outdoor/indoor pool, solid fitness center, and plentiful meeting space

 Food

Bolo's Rotisserie Grille serves American food all day, and the lobby bar offers cocktails and evening piano music

  • Bolo’s Rotisserie Grille is open for breakfast, lunch, and dinner; pasta and rotisserie bar available at lunchtime.
  • The lobby bar serves cocktails and light fare.
  • Room service until late
  • Some nearby restaurants within walking distance

 Bottom Line

The 19-story Omni San Antonio Hotel at the Colonnade is an upper-middle-range option located 10 miles from downtown. Though the location isn't central, this 326-room property has both an outdoor and indoor pool, modern fitness center, and is a short drive to Six Flags Fiesta Texas and Sea World. While rooms are spacious -- and there's even a kids'-themed suite -- decor is generic and could use an update.
