SAN ANTONIO, Texas. – Hyatt Regency San Antonio has completed an extensive $38 million renovation. The project completely transformed the hotel’s 602 guestrooms and 28 suites to reflect an upscale urban experience showcasing its location as a connecting feature between Alamo Plaza and the River Walk.
“We are ecstatic to celebrate the momentous milestone anniversary of 40 years in the San Antonio community with a new and vibrant chapter for our iconic River Walk hotel,” said Philip Stamm, area vice president and general manager of Hyatt Regency San Antonio. “As our location sits directly between two of the city’s most famous attractions, we made this investment in our hotel and community to complement the revitalization of the downtown area, from the renovation of Alamo Plaza to the numerous updates that have been made to our nearby museums and attractions.”
The project broke ground in early December 2021 and was conducted by Canco Construction, a minority-owned San Antonio-based contractor. Interior design services were provided by DLR Group, while the project was further supported by national contract coordinator Lombari Construction and Hyatt’s international technology and design teams.
Each room features brand new hardwood flooring complemented by modern, amber-colored accent rugs. The rooms highlight a light and airy color palette with a denim accent wall and wooden hearth-inspired structure that doubles as a wall mount for brand-new 75-inch flatscreen televisions. New amenities include updated mini-refrigerators, furniture, and work center desks with installed lighting and built-in power access. Hyatt Regency San Antonio’s indulgent suites were transformed to serve as dual purpose spaces, ideal for accommodations or entertainment locations for social gatherings and small events.
Behind the smooth gliding barn door, bathrooms were redesigned with marble stand-up showers with sliding glass doors and dual rainfall and hand-held shower combination systems, a lighted vanity mirror, and granite sinks and countertops. Hotel corridors and elevator waiting areas have also been updated to showcase the atrium-style hotel which oversees The Alamo and River Walk.
“For the past four decades, our hotel has been committed to providing service and care to the San Antonio community, our associates, and our guests. Multiple generations of local residents and visitors have stories of our hotel and fond memories that tie them to this particular location,” added Stamm. “As our city continues to grow as a premier destination for heritage travel paired with the incredible art, culinary scene, history, and culture, we look forward to providing unforgettable experiences for the next 40 years and beyond.”
The renovation of Hyatt Regency San Antonio took place along with the multi-year, multi-million-dollar revitalization of Alamo Plaza, including the addition of a $15 million Alamo Exhibit Hall and Collections Building set to open this fall.
“Hyatt Regency San Antonio is a vital hotel in a key, historic intersection connecting the River Walk and the Alamo,” said Marc Anderson, president & 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.”
