Just in time for Tricentennial, this posh River Walk hotel is unveiling a major multimillion-dollar renovation. The Grand Hyatt San Antonio, a 1,003-room luxury hotel and meeting center, recently completed more than $19 million in upgrades to its guestrooms, meeting spaces, bar, and corridors, as well as a lobby facelift.
The interior design takes a cue from the surrounding city, using rich indigos and creams along with wood accents in teak and birch. This interior inspiration begins in the guestrooms, all of which feature new amenities like luxe linens, flat-screen TVs, and plush mattresses. The hotel also added 46 suites, which feature panoramic views of the city, among other upgrades.
Public spaces bring the same San Antonio-inspired wood accents and rich accent colors into the corridors and beyond. The Italian tile and marble-clad lobby is outfitted with modern fixtures and "contemporary chandeliers" while the hotel's Bar Rojo expanded seating and added business-friendly amenities like additional electrical outlets and Wi-Fi.
And considering the Hyatt's location, just steps from downtown's Henry B. Gonzalez Convention Center, the hotel also updated its meeting spaces and the Lone Star Ballroom, which hosts private events like weddings and parties in addition to corporate events. Now featuring more than 115,000 square feet of meeting space both indoors and out, the Hyatt said it intentionally redesigned the areas to be flexible for large events while still maintaining an intimate feel for smaller affairs.
The renovation is part of the hotel's 10-year anniversary, a celebration that also happens to coincide with the city's lavish, year-long 300th anniversary.
