The St. Anthony, A Luxury Collection Hotel, San Antonio5.0 out of 5.0
Recent guest reviews
This is a historic hotel (Westin-Sheraton brand, i.e.SPG). Convenient to Alamo and Riverwalk. Very fitting for romantic occasions. As can be seen from the picture above it is not a skyscraper, and you are in downtown so, you would not have grand views. Valet and self-park available, but check the rates first. Nevertheless, if you are coming to a five star hotel, I do not think parking fees are your first concern.
For those who love historic hotels a stay at the St Anthony is a must. This hotel was where you'd go to see and be seen in San Antonio during it's heyday, and it's been nicely restored. Everyone is very friendly and will take care of you from the moment you step in. Our room was nice, large and modern with a very comfortable bed and provided robe and slippers. However, there were little disappointments too. We didn't have shampoo in our room, asked for it the next day and came back to find we still didn't have it. We requested turn-down service and didn't receive it. One of the main reasons we wanted to stay here was the 6th floor outdoor heated pool, but it was closed for repairs. There was no notice on the website about this, and though they told us it would be open the next day it still wasn't. However, for our trouble they gave us a $50 breakfast voucher for their beautiful Loggia which overlooks Travis Park. The food was very good and the atmosphere relaxed. Whether you stay here or not it's worth walking through the hotel just to see the historic design and architecture. Grand ballrooms with stages for the top events in the city, and a small room tucked away on the second floor with a stage where you can easily imagine gambling and drinking. The 6th floor pool area is very nice, as is the outdoor lounge on the top floor. Parking, whether valet or self park, is very expensive. The St. Mary's Parking Garage just a couple of blocks down the street is only $5 overnight on the weekends with 24 hour security.
The place to stay. The St. Anthony is near the Alamo and ideally located for exploring the city. It is where politicians, Presidents and celebrities have stayed and where the city's top events are held. Top-notch restaurants. Part of the lobby area is called Peacock Alley for the parade of elegantly dressed people who have walked here. If you like history, ask about the elegant piano in the lobby and the St. Anthony Club. There is a heated pool on the rooftop. Just one downside--overnight valet parking is $39.
This hotel is beautiful! I loved the old school, refurbished aspects like the mosaic tile work and LOVED the updated, bigger rooms, combined with the modern bathrooms made for a comfortable stay. The location is great and the staff was friendly. Sadly, no real paranormal activity but made an elevator incident??? Would stay here again in a heartbeat.
Staying at the St. Anthony was amazing! The service was exactly what we expect from a luxury hotel. We recently stayed at another luxury hotel expecting this kind of experience and it did not even come close to the St. Anthony. We will definitely be staying here every time we visit San Antonio!
We had an awesome time at the St. Anthony hotel... One of the oldest and classical facilities in downtown San Antonio. We were upgraded to a larger room and the staff is very accommodating. Parking is expensive, but you can park in the public facilities for a fraction of the cost. Near everything downtown San Antonio has to offer.
The drive up appeal here is minimal. Dont be put off by the lack of awning or grand entrance or driveway — just get inside. The renovation and restoration inside beautifully captured the glamour of another century. Walking into the lobby is time travel to the 1920s. The guest rooms maintain the historic aesthetic —- until you see the bedside panel that controls the lights and temperature, a thoughtful 21st century touch. Sadly, that bedside panel sits on a table that is sorely lacking in power outlets, which have become standard in other hotels that have embraced technology and the fact that travelers need to charge their phones overnight. The desk has one outlet but only an ornamental lamp, not a work light (there is also no light above the closet). For more time travel, simply go to the hotel restaurant. Its purple paint, black lights, and mirrored lion hint at the late 70s, but the food is pure overhyped 1980s. Every dish multitasks — the fish entree had seven different elements — the fish, of course, then a glaze and a puree and roasted beets and wheat berries and on and on. The fish itself was tasty but dry — likely because the chef was juggling all the accessories. Our server’s description of the brownie dessert sounded like a SNL skit. Brownie on a pool of artisanal salted caramel topped with a layer of roasted hazelnuts and another layer and another layer and a side of espresso ice cream. Both the decor and the dishes just try too hard. That said, the service there and in the hotel was excellent.
The redo of St Anthony is wonderful, and all including linens and rooms are well done. However, only the fine restaurant is open, and this is a Great Hotel in a not so nice part of town. The Hotel needs a casual sandwich or salad place. Valet is $42, quite steep. Management is attentive, but I was charged for a minibar drink (oj) that I bought at the corner store. The front reception on checking out did not seem to understand—- the bottle was neother same size or brand as minobar. Management needs to improve front desk staff. Fine restaurant food was uneven- appetizers great, but one seafood entree not too tasty. In all they try.
We didn't stay here (sadly), but we stopped in to see this beautiful hotel decked out for Christmas. It's recently remodeled. Top-notch decor, beautiful but invitingly comfortable as well. A great "special occasion" hotel!
This is our first time to stay at The St.Anthony Hotel, the hotel is located one block away from the river walk! The hotel is located in the corner of Travis and Jefferson.There is a wonderful park in front of the hotel. To get to the riverwalk you go down on Jefferson one block by Landry Restaurant at then downstairs to the Riverwalk. Haley in the front desk did an amazing job placing us in a great room! The spacious suite room had a sitting area, and a great bathroom. Beautiful decor ! Remember that after 6 Pm you can park in the street and meters are free;)
