Omni La Mansion del Rio
Overlooking the historic Riverwalk is San Antonio’s Omni La Mansión del Rio. Amenities at this Spanish-style hotel include a heated outdoor swimming pool with poolside bar, Saturday night dive-in movies, access to the Forbes Four Star spa and a 24-hour fitness center. The Omni La Mansión del Rio offers up two breakfast options: the relaxed Las Canarias and the upscale Ostra. On Sunday’s, Las Canarias is famous for its champagne brunch. The Omni La Mansión del Rio has the ideal location, just three blocks from the famed Alamo and seven blocks from the Henry B. Gonzalez Convention Center.
Walking into the Omni La Mansión del Rio, guests enter a lobby with hand-carved concierge and reception desks, graceful archways and a wrought-iron staircase. At Las Canarias, guests enjoy a menu brimming with authentic Spanish cuisine on one of the verandas or in an interior brick courtyard. At El Colegio, which is located in a renovated library, guests will find a casual bar serving morning coffee and evening cocktails. Across the Riverwalk, via a footbridge, is the hotel's partner property that provides spa treatments and salon appointments. The Omni La Mansión del Rio has a 24-hour business center for working guests.
Unwinding in one of the spacious Omni La Mansión del Rio guestrooms is not exceedingly difficult. Most rooms feature French doors, exposed beamed ceilings and brick walls and a view of the city, Riverwalk, lush courtyard or pool. The décor is muted earth tones with oversized furnishings and soft lighting. All rooms include an iron with ironing board, fully stocked mini bar, alarm clocks and coffee makers. The marble bathrooms feature custom bath products, a hair dryer and cotton bathrobes. Each room has a dual line speaker phone, high speed Internet access and LCD television with cable. Room service is available 24 hours a day.
Just 8 blocks from the Omni La Mansion del Rio is El Mercado. This is the United States' largest Mexican market place.
