$10 Million Renovation Planned for San Antonio’s Hotel Valencia Riverwalk

San Antonio’s Riverwalk is one of my favorite places to visit. Even if I’m in San Antonio for meetings, I always find time to stroll along the Riverwalk and take in the sites: a sidewalk café, a passing riverboat, public art glimpsed from under a Riverwalk bridge. Another favorite stop is Hotel Valencia Riverwalk. For the past 14 years of the boutique hotel’s operation, I’ve come to know its sleek and modern style—and this is all about to change. The hotel is being redesigned by internationally acclaimed architect and designer, Lauren Rottet.
