Not to be confused with the Fairmont luxury hotels, this is a small San Antonio original, independently owned and one of a kind. Built in 1906 for the benefit of railroad passengers, in 1985 the entire three-story, redbrick Victorian was moved 6 blocks (in one piece) to its present site near Hemisfair Park and La Villita. The move made headlines and the Guinness Book of World Records. Elaborate decorative details in the hotel’s interior were thus preserved and add to the charm of staying here. The rooms, decorated in period style and furnished with antiques, vary a great deal, but most are of comfortable size and have lovely marble bathrooms. The junior suites are a good bargain and worth an upgrade. The hotel’s restaurants are top-notch: The swanky Silo Prime steakhouse and the rustic Italian Nonna Osteria.
