San Antonio Luxury Hotels With Jacuzzi Tubs

by Mary Freeman

San Antonio has many luxury hotels, but only a handful have Jacuzzi tubs. In general, most of the luxury accommodations are located downtown near the city's River Walk. The upscale hotels fall into the four-star, four-diamond range and often are "very expensive or expensive," according to Frommer's. These hotels book up fast, so a reservation well in advance is advisable.
