Built in 1909 and listed on the National Register of Historic Places, this hotel (named for frontiersman Davy Crockett) is a relic of turn-of-the-20th-century San Antonio. Location is the big selling point here: you're 10 steps from the Alamo, River Walk, and many sights. The seven-story, light-filled, sandstone-brick atrium lobby with leather club chairs is impressive; some rooms look out onto it. Rooms were thoroughly updated in 2007; they are contemporary and spotless,
though a bit bland in the decor department.
