Travel Nav

So maybe the west wasn't won with a good night's sleep and a bottle of wine, but you can escape a world full of good, bad and ugly, with a one-night weekday ($91) or weekend ($101) stay in a whirlpool room at O'Brien Historic Hotel.

Hitch up the horses (or just the horses under your hood) and head to greener pastures in the heart of Alamo city. Your digs, just eight miles from San Antonio International Airport, are perfect for hunkering down for the night, with high ceilings, balconies, high-quality chiropractic mattresses and free wi-fi.

Your escape also includes parking, daily continental breakfast, and a bottle of wine and roses upon your arrival.

Drink in all that ole San Anton' has to offer: You're staying just half a block from the famed River Walk, and the public park is open 365 days a year. With average winter temps in the mid 60s, you can lasso in all the special attractions as the city prepares for the holiday season.

Elbow up to the bar at The Esquire Tavern. The River Walk's oldest establishment originally opened in 1933 to commemorate the end of the Prohibition, and offers the "big, bold, and handsome" (stouts, porters, and ales), and no doubt one for your horses.

Not one to howl at the moon? Catch a Spurs game at the Alamodome, or tour the shops and galleries of La Villita, a historic arts village. If you've got a case of the bow legs, stop by Alamo Segcity to rent the impossibly cool modern mode of transport to explore the five miles of trails along the San Antonio River.

Get locked and loaded: An escape like this is sure to win over the urban cowboy in you.
