Tuesdays are for Traveling: Hola San Antonio!

Let's get off to a modest start.  The fam and I just returned from an almost-overnight to the fabulous Hotel Havana in San Antonio, Tejas.  With a new kiddo at home, our travel schedule has been a bit limited.  So far, we've only gone on a trip to Marfa (everyone should go!  I'll tell y'all about it in a later post) and this little jaunt to SA.  But I would highly recommend the Hotel Havana.  It's hip and welcoming at the same time, which isn't always easy to find.  Like most things San Antonio, the place is also very down-to-earth:  They were bit short-staffed when we were there so the head chef even brought us our room service.

"Almost-overnight," you say?

Well, things began well.  The hotel looked great:


The inside was lovely, too:

And check out the very cool King Suite, which is quite the deal at less than $200 a night:

The old school fridge was stocked with awesome snacks:

And how about this menu?  Yum.  We ordered room service (DELICIOUS!) and were all set for a lovely evening...

(That's Violet, by the way...)
(...and that's Beau)

...when our kiddo decided to have a TOTAL meltdown.  After three hours (luckily, there was no one in the room next door!), we decided to call it.

We only live an hour away, so home we went.  But, hey, my husband thought it was worth it just for the food.  No disagreement there.  If you're ever in San Antone, check it out!

Hope you guys had a great holiday weekend in some far off place!
