Fodor's Review

Built in the 1920s and named for the woman who inspired the song "The Yellow Rose of Texas," this boutique hotel sits across from the Alamo on a triangular piece of land. Originally built as a medical school, it's neo-Gothic design stands out from other downtown landmarks. Sleek furnishings and whirlpool tubs in marble bathrooms make it a posh destination steeped in period romance. As in many historic hotels, room size varies greatly, and quarters can be tight.
