From The Alamo to La Villita, downtown San Antonio captures the diversity of the Southwest with its unique collection of districts. Check out the Texas city's buzzing center with this Escape to the DoubleTree by Hilton, San Antonio—located in the heart of the central business hub.
Grab that special someone and head off for a couple's retreat during a one-night stay, Sundays through Thursdays ($99) or Fridays and Saturdays ($109), in a Standard King or Double Room. Or, bring the entire crew and enjoy a family getaway with a one-night stay for two adults and two kids in a Double Room ($135), Fridays through Sundays. No matter which option you choose, you'll snag access to a hot breakfast buffet each morning and overnight parking for one vehicle.
Less than 15 minutes from San Antonio International Airport and with easy access to major interstates, the DoubleTree is convenient to The Alamo, Riverwalk, and surrounding Texas military facilities. Catch a flick on your room's HDTV, indulge in a spread of in-room boutique bath products, or snooze on your Select Comfort bed—your space is packed with the perfect perks for a brief retreat.
Head to the Riverwalk to take advantage of your River Barge passes—the guided tour meanders beneath blankets of Spanish moss as it cruises along San Antonio River. Later, grab a bite from one of the area's spicy taquerias.
"'Remember the Alamo' three million tourists a year cry as they stampede ol' San Antone's central mission, site of the infamous battle/massacre," says Lonely Planet. "Drink an aguas frescas (fruit-infused water) at the mercado (marketplace) and then hear country music at an old country store Willie Nelson helped establish – here you can fiesta one day and rodeo the next."
While you can't tackle the entire landscape, an San Antonio Escape provides enough entertainment to cover a lot of ground.
