Hotel Contessa Hotel Review

: This contemporary River Walk lodging serves both business and leisure travelers. All suite accommodations offer great comfort, with their separate parlors equipped with sofa beds. Among the amenities are flat-screen TVs, wireless high-speed Internet access and two work areas per suite. The quietly sophisticated d├ęcor is appealing and cheerful, with nods to the Southwest and the Mediterranean; floor-to-ceiling windows with views of the city or River Walk add to the appeal. Don't be surprised to find conventioneers wandering the halls in this 265-room property. It offers more than 10,000 square feet of dedicated meeting space, including the 2,300-square-foot Contessa Ballroom, a fourteen-seat executive boardroom and three outdoor terraces overlooking the River Walk. There is even a conference concierge. With its exhibition kitchen, outdoor seating and Spanish cuisine, Las Ramblas is a nice addition to the area's dining scene. The Cork Bar sits at river level, with live music is performed on Friday and Saturday nights; Cafe Contessa serves breakfast. For relaxation, the 1,700-square-foot Woodhouse Day Spa is located on the rooftop, next to the fitness center and outdoor heated pool. Additional perks include a convenience store, picnic area and 24-hour room service. This smoke-free hotel is pet-friendly with restrictions.
