The Omni La Mansión del Rio is located in downtown San Antonio, Texas, overlooking the city's historic Riverwalk. This hacienda-style hotel is three blocks from the Alamo and seven blocks from the Henry B. Gonzalez Convention Center. El Mercado, the largest Mexican market place in the United States, is eight blocks from the hotel.
The hotel lobby features graceful archways and a wrought-iron staircase. Also embellishing the interior of the hotel are hand-carved concierge and reception desks, and hand-carved cabinets. The Spanish Colonial architecture of the hotel is reflected in its Las Canarias restaurant, serving authentic Old World cuisine in an interior brick-paved courtyard and three verandas descending onto the Riverwalk. Signature entrees include Buffalo Carpaccio with Herbed Quinoa and Texas Blue Crab-Stuffed Swordfish Tempura. The restaurant also offers Sunday champagne brunches. The on-site El Colegio, once home to the St. Mary's College library, now houses a casual American bar that serves morning coffee and evening cocktails. Recreational amenities include a heated outdoor pool with poolside bar, where on Friday afternoon the Mariachi Quiroga group entertains guests with traditional Mexican music. The hotel's partner property offers spa treatments and salon appointments across the Riverwalk via a footbridge. Self parking is available for an extra surcharge.
Guestrooms at the Omni La Mansión del Rio feature beamed ceilings, exposed brick walls and double French doors opening to balconies overlooking the river, courtyard or city. Rooms are fully furnished with custom cotton bedding with triple sheeting, large reading chairs, and glass-topped desks. Marble bathing areas have gilded mirrors, gooseneck faucets and cotton bath linens.
