Just got back from one of my favorite places in the world to hang my hat and rest my weary body -- the incomparable Westin La Cantera Resort in San Antonio.
Despite the openings of other and bigger resorts in the San Antonio area, La Cantera remains pertinent because of the care taken at the property, the customer service and the continual feeling that you are top on the world -- which you really are since you are on the top of a hill in North SA.
Staying here never gets old, and the credit for that must go to Tony Cherone, La Cantera's general manager, and Greg Haugland, the resort's director of sales and marketing. Having Steve Shields of Troon Golf run the golf course operations at the resort is a huge plus as well.
These guys and their staff know how to book the right customers into the right rooms and stage the right events, three things that are crucial in today's hospitality market. La Cantera makes no pretense at being anything more than what it is -- a great place to stay, to eat, to relax and to play golf.
