A warm welcome awaits guests at our San Antonio hotel in the heart of this beautiful riverside city, home to The Alamo; near the Riverwalk. Whether traveling on business or pleasure, or perhaps a bit of both, we think you'll enjoy having this enviable location as your base while absorbing both the work side and the fun side of San Antonio. After a good night's rest in one of our comfy beds, waking up to a healthy and hearty free Bright Side Breakfast® is first order of the day. Stay in touch with our free Wi-Fi Internet access, 30 channels of HD programming on a new flat-panel TV, and free local calls. We also offer a pet-friendly policy, guest laundry facilities, fitness center, and an outdoor pool for cooling off after a busy day out and about. Let the staff at our hotel assist you with your meeting needs. Plus, the 501 Lounge is onsite and there are several other dining options nearby.
It's a quick walk to Texas' number one attraction, The Alamo. Walk along San Antonio's delightful 2.5 mile Riverwalk, ride a sightseeing boat, dine al fresco along the river banks, see a film at our historic movie palace, or enjoy a live production at the Ameson River Theater. The city welcomes more than 20 million visitors each year, and San Antonio is growing still, as headquarters to several Fortune 500 companies. Known as the home of chili, San Antonio's Tex-Mex dining is unbeatable. There's a lot to see and do. Numerous seasonal festivals take place around the calendar, with Christmas and summertime being extra special. Open year round, enjoy a visit to Six Flags Fiesta Texas, SeaWorld, Fort Sam Houston, and remember The Alamo.
San Antonio is Texas' second largest city, and is rich in its diverse cultural offerings. Famous as the location of the Alamo and the River Walk area, San Antonio is a vibrant city that is growing rapidly.
The heart of the city's tourism business beats along the River Walk and in the downtown area. Densely packed with hotels, attractions, restaurants and bars, a visitor could conceivably spend their entire trip right here. The area bustles with activity nearly every night of the week and almost all year long, with locals and tourists alike enjoying mouth-watering cuisine at Boudro's or Paesano's River Walk, singing their hearts out at Howl at the Moon, or dancing the night away at Polly Esther's. Not your average tourist trap, the River Walk entices many locals to brave the crowds and enjoy their city.
