Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.
Learn more about our review moderation.

I’ve stayed here several times since they first opened, and as always it was a first rate stay. The rooms are lovely, spacious, and clean. Staff is friendly and helpful. Food is very good. I am always happy when work brings me back to town so I can stay here again. The location is perfect - right on the river but just far enough from the action that it’s nice and quiet at night.

Hotel's Favourite
Loved this location on Riverwalk! This hotel was very busy while we visited on a spring family trip . AJ and Fast Eddie helped us gets bags in and out. Valet was expensive but usually fast. Everyone we encountered there was so friendly and helpful. Bar was super busy due to a conference at hotel but they were working hard to get drinks out! Enjoyed happy hour margaritas each night before dinner. Loved the suite set up since we had kids with us. It was perfect. Will return if we get a chance to come back to San Antonio!

Fast Eddie in the valet area is a hard worker and very sociable. Juanita at the front desk treated us like old friends. There was no bad employee at the hotel. The room was phenomenal. The pre festivities before the lighting of the Riverwalk parade was one of a kind. They had a 10 piece Mariachi band and performers to keep us entertained. They went out of their way to call and find us parade tickets at another location because they didn’t have enough seats together for us. I highly recommend this hotel. The two employees named offered exemplary service!!

Everything was great. The valet was great. The rooms were excellent. One of the males at the front desk was not as cooperative but other than him, the rest were great. The food was ok. The bar service was good but a little slow and pricey.

I expected this place would have better service. Looks nice but horrible restaurant service from Darren kitchen manager and the front desk lady Lisa wasn't helpful at all. I also waited on my car at valet for 30 mins. Better to door dash your food here so you'll have something to eat. I had better service at La Quinta.

From the moment we pulled up, we were greeting by excellent people. The valet, the bellhop, the front desk clerk, all very friendly. The bartender though.. Michael! Top notch! Great service and funny!

Michael B was our bartender and was the most amazing laid back guy ever. We watched him several times just brush off and ignore someone that was completely smashed and belligerent berating him in Spanish and he stayed cool as a cucumber. He made the best drinks and provided the most personable service to a very busy bar. Was such a treat. Leacy was one of the other bartenders tonight and she was equally amazing. Hotel contessa Ambler bar would get 10 stars if that was an option we are so excited to spend this weekend here

The San Antonio river walk provides a unique microcosm of what it might be like if America cities were walkable, lush, and relatively quiet refuge instead of car-dependent sprawl. The Contessa provides you with the cleanest, friendliest possible hub to explore that. Highly recommend.

Upon arrival the hostess told us our room was not ready. No problem she updated us. In seconds she gave us our key and gave us a great room. The bed was a dream, and the room was a mini home away from home. We had drinks at the bar. They were really good watermelon mixture and hibiscus cocktail. Great!!! The Hotel has a gorgeous patio with the river at the edge of it. Great place to stay we will be back.
