- Hotel Havana
If you're looking for a getaway that doesn't involve a plane ticket, make the most of the Alamo City's wide range of hotel options. Nestled into the Museum Reach of the River Walk is the cozy and charming Hotel Havana (1015 Navarro St.). Redesigned in 2010 by star hotelier Liz Lambert, the Havana and its pan-Latin restaurant/lounge Ocho are walking distance from the Tobin Center for the Performing Arts — perfect for culture-seeking staycationers. Those in need of pampering need look no further than the luxurious JW Marriott Hill Country Resort and Spa (23808 Resort Pkwy.), a massive complex offering guests everything from an upscale steakhouse and high-tech sports bar to a 2,800-acre golf course and a swimming pool surrounded by a lazy river. Or for a hip weekend smack in the middle of downtown, try trendy Hotel Valencia (150 E Houston St.), which features fine dining at onsite Citrus and cocktails in the stylish Vbar lounge.
