Hilton San Antonio Hill Country Hotel & Spa -- Seasonal specials, such as the Ultimate SeaWorld Adventure package, providing passes, transportation, and complimentary souvenirs for both you and the kids, make this an excellent option.

Homewood Suites -- This reasonably priced all-suites hotel near the River Walk, with in-room kitchen facilities and two TVs per suite -- not to mention a guest laundry -- is extremely convenient for families.

Hyatt Regency Hill Country Resort and Spa -- In addition to its many great play areas (including a beach with a shallow swimming area), and its proximity to SeaWorld, this hotel offers Camp Hyatt -- a program of excursions, sports, and social activities for children ages 3 to 12. The program fills up fast during school breaks and other holidays, making reservations mandatory.


O'Casey's Bed & Breakfast -- Usually B&Bs and family vacations are a contradiction in terms, but O'Casey's is happy to host well-behaved kids. Best bet: Stay in the separate guesthouse with the fold-out bed, and then join the main-house guests for breakfast in the morning.

Omni San Antonio -- This hotel's proximity to the theme parks as well as in-room Nintendo and various other Omni Kids features makes the Omni appealing to families.

La Cantera Hill Country Resort -- It's close to Six Flags Fiesta Texas, it's got two pools just for children, and it offers an activities program for ages 5 through 12 in the summer.


Westin Riverwalk Inn -- Though not as family-friendly as the Westin La Cantera, this Westin on the River Walk still offers such amenities as free in-room movies, a kids' treat pack upon check-in, and bedtime stories told over the phone.
