Hotel Gibbs Downtown Riverwalk (formerly Hotel Indigo San Antonio Downtown - Alamo) is a boutique hotel with plenty of significance for history buffs and style junkies alike. Set in a century-old bank building, the hotel highlights the property's history by retaining art deco touches like marble wainscoting, giant windows and the original woodwork. The hotel is also the only one in the city to hold residence on the grounds of the original Alamo mission.

Guest rooms include 100-year-old hardwood floors, lots of natural light and pops of bold color and pattern set against the white walls and deep brown furniture. Some rooms offer Alamo views. All room reservations come with daily breakfast and free Wi-Fi.

Within a short walking distance of the hotel, guests can reach the River Walk's restaurants, shops and historic sites. The Alamo is even closer -- just across the street.
