    POSTED January 29, 2017

San Antonio landed the top spot on Meetings and Conventions magazine’s Top 20 Meeting Cities in 2016 list.

The city has many venues for meeting planners. Hotel Contessa, a AAA Four Diamond hotel, has partnered with The Briscoe Western Art Museum to build a unique Texan experience for their guests.

The Briscoe Western Art Museum, located on the Riverwalk (just steps away from the hotel), features exhibitions and educational programs that highlight the region’s history. The partnership with Hotel allows for guests to truly experience the culture of the city. It also offers groups the possibility of hosting events at the museum and catering events at Hotel Contessa.

Hotel Contessa offers 10,000 square feet of meeting and event space, with 11 conference rooms and includes an executive board room, a 2,277-square-foot ballroom, and a 1,600-square-foot Cypress Room. The Briscoe Museum offers an extra 20,000 square feet of indoor and outdoor space.
