Since San Antonio was home to the first air-conditioned high-rise, hotel, and bank, you better believe that this city knows the meaning of cool. And speaking of cool, allow us to introduce the new kid on the block, Stay Alfred on 9th Street, which brings some serious style to our portfolio of San Antonio vacation rentals. Perched on the edge of the River Walk and within steps of the San Antonio Museum of Art, this upscale building looks more like a tropical resort than a typical urban apartment community. Complete with an outdoor pool, and world-class fitness center, and a cozy fire pit, your trip to San Antonio will definitely feel like a vacation, even if you’re visiting on business.
Make yourself at home in a swanky San Antonio travel apartment
In addition to all the luxurious amenities, every apartment comes complete with all of the essentials, because we’re not only into the cool stuff, but also comfort and convenience. Each unit features a modern kitchen with shiny stainless steel appliances, granite countertops, and elegant white cabinetry, which is the perfect spot to channel your inner Giada or Gordon. Cook up something delicious and savor it at the dining table or on your terrace or patio.
The open floor plans mean you’ll have plenty of space to hang out with your travel companions, and the private bedrooms ensure you can have your own personal space when you need it. The full bathrooms include toiletries, fluffy towels, and extras like hair dryers and irons, so you can pack light – or just leave room for souvenirs. But if you’re a dedicated overpacker, you’ll be happy to know that the walk-in closets are definitely Texas-sized, meaning you’ll have shelves to spare even if you max out your baggage allowance. And, of course, every apartment includes climate control, so, just like the lucky few who stayed in the country’s first air-conditioned hotel, you can stay comfortable year-round too.
Feel the vacation vibes at this high-end building
Stay Alfred on 9th Street may not have been San Antonio’s first air-conditioned building, and it’s certainly not going to be the last, but one thing’s for sure: it’s San Antonio’s first Stay Alfred location with an infinity pool. The sprawling outdoor area is a little piece of paradise that looks more like Cabo San Lucas than San Antonio; lining the pool deck are chaise lounge chairs, umbrellas, and even stone loungers in the pool so you never need to decide between sunbathing and swimming. Next to the pool is a BBQ area that just begs you to try your hand at Texas-style barbecue and a fire pit that’s the ideal place for a chat on a chilly winter evening.
Inside, the building shows off even more contemporary cool, with stylish lounge areas that look like they jumped off the pages of an interior design magazine (or a Pinterest board). The resident lounge is a fabulous place to plan your San Antonio adventures, and there’s a business center for productive travelers who want a quiet place to catch up on email. In addition, the state-of-the-art fitness center has a yoga room, cardio equipment, and weights, so you can maintain your workout routine on the road. Throughout the building, you’ll enjoy views of San Antonio’s iconic River Walk, which is just steps from the front door.
