About this Hotel

Price From $115

San Antonio may be a mere stone’s throw from the Mexican border, but at the city’s Hotel Havana, it’s always been about Cuba. When a grocer opened the riverside hotel in 1914, the Mediterranean-revival architecture proved a dead ringer for the colonial Caribbean capital, and the name Hotel Havana stuck. Now, famed West Texas lawyer-turned-hotelier Liz Lambert—who reinvigorated the Texas lodging scene with Marfa’s El Cosmico and Austin’s Hotel Saint Cecilia—has brought her hip-meets-retro trademark to the space. Her 27-room reincarnation harks back to the island’s prerevolutionary 1950s glory days. Original pine floors and wrought-iron beds are paired with accents such as pastel SMEG fridges, vintage radios, and framed graphic prints. Mexico gets its due at Ocho, the on-site restaurant where chefs Larry McGuire and Lou Lambert (Liz’s brother) bring classic Mexican flavors to their pan-Latin menu of small plates and artisan cocktails.
