A beautiful new and modern resort in the upscale area of San Antonio. Convenient if going to Six Flags or La Canterra.

I recently spent 1 night at La Cantera for a business meeting and was very impressed with the facilities. This was a Westin managed hotel when I visited a few years back however, the ownership (USAA) recently brought in a new company to manage the property. Why I bring this up is because the Resort has not missed a beat in the turnover process. They maintained their wonderful staff and the standards in the Restaurants, Golf courses and room product are what you consider for a luxury hotel. My room overlooked the pool and faced West so I caught a great sunset. It is hard to find a bad view anywhere on the property because it sits on a hilltop that looks over all of San Antonio. I had dinner at Francesca's their high end dinner restaurant and stopped in for a drink at Steinheimer's which is as authentic of a Texas bar you will find (complete with shuffleboard). What I like about this resort is if you are in town for 2-4 nights you really do not need to leave, with golf, spa and restaurants you can stay onsite. If you feel the need to leave,you can catch the complimentary shuttle over to La Cantera shopping area which has a number of restaurants as well as shopping or head down to Six Flags which is about a mile away. NOTES: One area that could use improving is the Spa. The waiting area and treatment rooms are fine however, the men's locker room has a dry sauna and 2 outdated showers that look like they were from the original build back in the early 90's. Also, there were very little in amenities if you want to shower and shave after a treatment (no gel, after shave, no shaving cream etc...) just the bare essentials. The treatment I received was wonderful however, my room was near an employee door leading into the Spa so you heard it open and close throughout the massage. Overall, a wonderful stay with quality service and incredible meals. Depending on the traffic you are about 30 minutes from the airport and 20 minutes from the Riverwalk district. If they can update the spa this would be the perfect spot to stay in San Antonio.

The Westin La Cantera Hill Country Resort is as the Name states. It's got valleys,hills & the most spectacular view in San Antonio. Nestled by Six Flags theme park, La Cantera Mall & The Rim Shopping Centers which all can be reached by Shuttle provided by the Great Hotel. Inside it has it's King Ranch charm and that Texas Drawl which is heard through out it's inards. On the grounds there is a beautiful swimming hole, Gantry bar, waterfall & slide for the kids. There is even a private section just for the adults complete with hot tubs also The Spa. There is a lot for the kids to do. Bugs Bunny Character Breakfast, Magic shows & even a petting zoo, check for scheduled events. If you want some alone time with just your Honey & You. Try the Grrreat Cuisine at Francesca's At Sunset. It is "PURE TEXAS"! Chef Ernie Estrada Melds the old with the new and is one Funny Character!! We simply loved his take on Shrimp and Grits & that Sika with Black Bean Cajeta & Chimichurri was Devine. The Heavenly Bed "OH MY GOD!" I LOVE THIS RESORT!!! You will too!!

As far as hotels with the best views in San Antonio, Westin La Cantera is absolutely in the running for the cake. It looks out on breathtaking La Cantera scenery, and boasts various golf courses, restaurants, bars and room types.

The attendant in charge of getting me a room could not have been kinder. Despite the annoying interruptions from the privileged soccer mom looking for directions, she managed to tell me a lot of informations in very little time. There’s a “fun” side to the resort, with pools and tennis and more as well as a quiet, business-inclined side with more of those breathtaking views.

Overall, you cannot go wrong with this place. There’s the shops at La Cantera just down the way and Six Flags just a stone’s throw away. With as much to do around the premises as there is there, it’s hard to say no.

San Antonio is not a densely packed city like Boston or Chicago, but sometimes it can feel overwhelming and you need to escape and feel that big open Texas sensation. Enter Westin La Cantera Palmer Course.

You would need to be beyond clinically depressed to not enjoy and fall in love with these views and amenities. Skating rink outside in the courtyard? In Texas? Yes, please.

I felt like I could see for miles out of my window/balcony.

Though not as large as the JW Marriott in Cibolo, it takes top marks with Six Flags and the Shops at La Cantera as your doorstep. I felt like I had left the city and was in some too good to be true suburb somewhere upscale yet easily accessible on any budget.

The hotel is hard to beat, but have your wallets ready, I know I had to.
