Rooms are simple but music and good vibes from the restaurant below waft through the windows, bringing the blank canvas to life.

Messing with the legendary Pikes

(Pikes)

In the 1980s, Freddie Mercury, George Michael, and Grace Jones all partied at Pikes, so they can be given credit for cementing the hedonistic tendencies that go along with this San Antonio hotel. To this day, it still attracts the who’s who of A-list celebrity, not to mention anyone with slightly epicurean inclinations. This not only creates a delightfully intoxicating atmosphere, but also hugely increases the chances of being willfully misled. Pack a lounger by the pool and start sinking those G&Ts early. Because if not in Ibiza, then where?
