More Room Types

This hotel is absolutely bursting with Texas history: from its name and proximity to the Alamo to its Gothic architecture and rumored ghosts. Two recent renovations, however, revamped modernity and style for a comfortable, one-of-a-kind stay. Whether for a quick business trip or a family excursion, it’s impossible to miss out on San Antonio at this property. Many guest rooms offer views of the Alamo and others have Jacuzzi tubs.

Opened in 1926, this hotel was the first skyscraper west of the Mississippi River and was at one time the tallest building in the western United States. In 2015, the hotel was inducted into the Historic Hotels of America organization; it had been recognized by the National Register of Historic Places as part of the Alamo Plaza Historic District.

Sample Southwestern flavors at on-site ORO Restaurant or indulge in a martini some describe as “renowned.” The lively atmosphere makes for an unforgettable San Antonio experience. Well-appointed guest rooms are decorated with blackout curtains and comfortable beds for re-energizing nights before taking on the city.
