We stayed at The Omni La Mansion del Rio right on The Riverwalk, and it was truly an unforgettable experience. The hotel was formerly a seminary and is quietly elegant in its Spanish hacienda style and listed in Travel and Leisure's 2010 World's Best Hotels to name one of its honors. Las Canarias, is their AAA Four-Star restaurant where the food is only equalled by the understated, but attentive service.
My dessert: Valrhona Burnt Caramel Creme au Chocolate accompanied by Jivara Ganache Golden Figs and an Orange Creamsicle Root Beer Float. I must acknowledge perfection.
