Just a minute's walk from the Alamo, this hotel re-created the facade of the nineteenth-century building which originally occupied the site. Spacious guest rooms are decorated with minimalist shades of white, beige, and green, and have high ceilings, four-poster beds swathed in Egyptian cotton sheets, and oversized marble bathrooms with whirlpool tubs. Ostra provides River Walk views, seafood flown in daily from around the world (Australian barramundi, Alaskan cod, for example), and "a ridiculously large tequila menu." "My husband is a real foodie, and he still raves about the meals."
