Located on the River Walk, the Hyatt Regency San Antonio Riverwalk has completed its $38 million renovation just in time for its 40thanniversary. The renovation broke ground in December 2021. The hotel’s 602 guestrooms and 28 suites were redesigned to reflect an upscale urban experience.  

The updates include a more open floor plan in rooms and brand new hardwood flooring. A sliding barn door separates the sleeping spaces from the bathrooms, which were also redesigned with granite sinks and countertops and marble stand-up showers and dual rainfall and handheld shower combination systems. The rooms now feature a light and airy color palette with a denim accent wall and wooden hearth-inspired structure that doubles as a wall mount for 75-inch flatscreen televisions. New amenities include updated mini-refrigerators, furniture, and work center desks with installed lighting and built-in power access. Hotel corridors and elevator waiting areas have also been updated to showcase the atrium-style hotel which oversees The Alamo and River Walk. 

The renovation of Hyatt Regency San Antonio took place in concert with the multiyear, multimillion dollar revitalization of Alamo Plaza, which includes the addition of a $15 million Alamo Exhibit Hall and Collections Building set to open fall of 2022. 

“Hyatt Regency San Antonio Riverwalk is a vital hotel in a key, historic intersection connecting the River Walk and the Alamo,” says Marc Anderson, president and CEO of Visit San Antonio. “The renovation of this signature hotel for leisure and business travelers showcases how San Antonio is a city on the move while remaining proud and respectful of its roots. With Hyatt Regency’s renovation, visitors will be able to enjoy an improved San Antonio experience starting from the upgraded airport to the Alamo Plaza restoration and new experiences throughout the city.”

Moody Center, a multi-purpose venue located in downtown Austin, opened its doors this past April. The sold-out grand opening show was a Texas-sized celebration featuring artist George Strait with special guests Willie Nelson & Family and Randy Rogers Band.
