The St. Anthony, A Luxury Collection Hotel, San Antonio5.0 out of 5.0
Recent guest reviews
Often a "historic" hotel means the rooms are small and there are things you do with out. This is one of the best appointed hotels I have stayed in for a long time. The rooms are large, luxurious, the beds are ultra comfortable and they truly have thought of everything. A lot of nice little touches everywhere you look. The lobby is like stepping back into the gilded ages, elegant, classy and refined. A short walk to the river walk. A great place for a meeting or a very special occasion.
This is still a beautiful hotel but the management has changed. The staff still try to be helpful and are friendly but they are struggling with cheapo policies. Perhaps some of these issues are simply things that I didn't notice before. This hotel will nickel and dime you to death. Paying $200 for a room? Need the business center? It's $28 an hour for a computer and 69 cents a page to print something. I've been in much cheaper hotels (e.g. LaQuinta) where both were free. But, despite what the front desk said, even at those prices, there was no way to print from a thumbdrive and the printer did not work, even to print from the computer in the center. Ordering room service -- the items are no longer as described in the menu (I ordered blackened shrimp and got a plain sauteed shrimp) and they no longer have some of the wines on the list. Parking is $39.99 a day (more than anywhere else that I found in town) and that's not 24 hours. I checked in at 6 p.m. I needed a late checkout and was offered an extra 30 minutes. Wow. I checked out at 12:30 and was told they would (generously) leave my car on the street, not in the garage, until 2. There are lots of nice hotels in San Antonio. I won't be back. This was my third stay and I was a fan until this. Incidentally, I didn't see anyone on the staff that I recognized.
The St. Anthony is a lovely piece of history that has been lovingly restored. The whole property is beautiful. My favorite part of the hotel was the rooftop area -- great views of the city and a well-decorated area. My only beef with this property is that the grab-and-go food choices are practically nonexistent. However, the charm of the property makes up for that.
Fully renovated old world charm. Amazing facility and staff attentive to every detail. Rooms are wonderful and spacious. Great fitness center on the 6th floor also a very nice pool too. Right by the riverwalk.
Hotel fantastic! Stayed Thanksgiving 2016.Had xtra guest in room on the 9th floor! I am a sensitive, so I was targeted by this "guest". Guest kept me awake and made me sick! Sick for a week once home!
Great location for everything you want to do downtown. The hotel is the fanciest, cleanest and most accommodating we have ever been too. The rooftop pool is great. All employees go out of their way to make your stay awesome.
My husband and I had a great getaway weekend to San Antonio but it was mainly due to the fantastic accommodations at the St Anthony. The staff was very attentive and always willing to go the extra mile. Michelle greeted us and went out of her way to be sure that we had everything needed at check out and answered a couple of questions for us and even checked with management to be sure of accuracy. Everyone we met was super warm and helpful. I totally recommend this place if you want to get out of the rat race and chill.
I've stayed at the St. Anthony more than 20 times over the past year. The quality of the hotel speaks for itself and the staff are among the best. I recommend the St. Anthony to all my colleagues and friends as the only place to stay in San Antonio. As far as your usual hotel accommodations go, the bed and the showers are superior to most hotels I stay in my >100 nights-per-year of travel. The hotel has two restaurants. The St. Anthony Club is a historic speakeasy. The bartenders here truly capture the essence of a 5 Star hotel. There is usually live music that is worthy of a paid performance. Rebelle is one of several restaurants owned and operated by one of San Antonio's top chefs. I highly recommend the short rib. If there is one criticism I can offer to the hotel management, it is to nail down some of the some of the finer details that truly differentiate a 5 Star hotel. For instance, one evening I took advantage of the shoe shine service. I didn't receive my shoes by the promised return time the next morning and I could have done a better shine with spit and a dirty t-shirt. I acknowledge that this is a pretty snobby criticism. Overall, St. Anthony has set a very high standard for all my future hotel stays. If you are a history buff, ask any staff about the hotel's history.
We had a wonderful time here, the staff is very hands on and friendly. The bar they have is excellent and Luis is amazing!! He recommended some great drinks that were made with fresh fruits. Every time we go to San Antonio we make sure to stay here just to visit with Luis. He is very knowledgable, super friendly and tentative. It is always a great experience staying there. remember to always tip your bartenders 🙃
As an SPG Platinum Elite member and frequent business traveler to San Antonio, I have stayed at all of the Starwood properties in the downtown area. They are all nice and good value for the money but none can compare to The St. Anthony. After two stays it is definitely one of my favorite Starwood properties in the country. During my last visit I was warmly greeted by Michelle at the front desk, who not only was able to check me in early but also upgraded me to a suite overlooking the pool. I typically don't like older "classic" hotels - small rooms, dark hallways, slow elevators, creaky floors, poor WiFi. But you won't experience any of those at The St. Anthony. The rooms are spacious, light and very clean. The bathrooms and showers are large, the Internet is fast, and I never had to wait for an elevator. The pool and fitness center were first class. More than enough ellipticals and treadmills in a bright room overlooking the park. The rooftop pool is an oasis in itself, with plenty of comfortable lounge chairs to nap the afternoon away. I did not eat dinner at the hotel, but enjoyed cocktails and appetizers at the Haunt Lounge. The food was delicious and the cocktails were generous. Bar service was exceptional. Overall, it's this amazing customer service at the St. Anthony that separates it from other SPG properties downtown. I can't wait to come back, next time with family.
