Hilton San Antonio Hill Country is a beautiful family resort located on the west side of San Antonio, Texas. Our family made the five hour drive for a quick getaway. Surrounded by trees and beautiful landscaping, this San Antonio hotel located near SeaWorld is a must see.
What You Need to Know about Hilton San Antonio Hill Country
This hotel is conveniently located near Six Flags Fiesta, San Antonio Zoo and SeaWorld. A shuttle is available on the hour for those who want to travel to and from the hotel to SeaWorld. It’s a great way to save money on parking. Check out the hotel’s SeaWorld Family Package.
Downtown San Antonio is approximately 17 miles away from the hotel. Our family spent a day exploring the Alamo, River Walk and Battle For Texas: The Experience.
The Hilton San Antonio Hill Country hotel includes 50 suites with separate livings areas. The hotel had a complete renovation back in March and it looks great. The rooms and suites are now styled with warm, Texas ranch-style decor. Find down-filled comforters, marble bathrooms, 49-inch HDTVs and WiFi access. Suites feature rainforest showers and garden tubs with spa jets. The kids were obsessed with the spa jets.
Also, I can not tell you how many hotels that have forgotten to set up the crib when I request it during the reservation. At the Hilton San Antonio Hill Country resort, that did not happen. I was welcomed with an adorable snack basket and an already set up crib front and center. That’s customer service right there!
The bed was super comfortable and felt huge! The suite layout was perfect for us to spend time with our oldest daughter while our toddler slept in the other room nearby. We were worried about waking him up with every little sound.
This hotel is budget friendly for families. For our 1 King Bedroom Suite the price ranges from $169 – 209 depending on timing and specials. There are different hotel packages and specials for Hilton Honors members. If you plan to visit SeaWorld take advantage of their SeaWorld Family Package that includes breakfast, a pizza party, s’mores and transportation to SeaWorld (for four people).
Hilton San Antonio Hill Country activities are planned with family in mind. There are 3 outdoor pools, 4 fire pits and nighttime s’mores kits available for purchase. Outdoor activities including giant tabletop games, cornhole and movies. We had a blast at SeaWorld, but were excited to get back to the hotel to cool off in a private setting. The children’s pool was a family favorite. Little man was obsessed with the splash pad area.
Thinking of visiting during the cooler months? The pools are all heated! Make sure you hunt down towels as soon as you visit the pools. We could not find any clean towels or hotel staff to bring them. Also, we only saw one trash can by the pools. It was difficult to juggle children and find a trash can for our food and drink.
The kids loved the life-size games including chess, Connect Four and Jenga. I loved the rocking chairs throughout the courtyard!
I don’t care how old you are, any time is a good time for S’mores. Especially when you can enjoy them while watching a movie in the courtyard.
When I take vacations, I want a vacation from cooking as well and I am not talking about eating fast food every meal. I want amazing food, delicious coffee and an adult beverage here and there. This San Antonio hotel delivered all three.
Hill Country Cafe
We dined at the Hill Country Cafe for a breakfast buffet that hit the spot. Guests can take advantage of the Breakfast included package.
Spur Texas Kitchen & Bar
This hotel restaurant offers American and Texas cuisine. I highly recommend the guacamole and chicken melt. Of course I had to get a margarita to go with it. It was a great way to jump start our vacation after a five hour drive with children.
Fresh Connection features a wide variety of freshly prepared house-made items thoughtfully presented in eco-friendly packaging. Ordering is fast, efficient and easy giving guests options for pick-up at the bar or front desk, or have it delivered to their room. We did not have a chance to try out Fresh Connections, but we did order room service one night for a pizza that was delicious.
The pool bar is conveniently located between the lap pool and the leisure pool. Guests can enjoy a selection of beer wine and frozen drinks, pizza, nachos, burgers and foot long hot dogs.
If you are looking for a quick or long getaway in San Antonio with your kids, consider the Hilton San Antonio Hill Country hotel. Newly renovated, it caters to family in a unique and fun way. Not to mention it’s so insanely close to SeaWorld.
