San Antonio, Tex. (March 21, 2018) – Grand Hyatt San Antonio, a luxury hotel located on San Antonio’s famous River Walk, announces its 10th anniversary on March 22, 2018.  Built in 2008, the hotel has accommodated more than three million guests, hosted more than 5,000 meetings, and has served millions of patrons in its bars and restaurants since opening.  To complement the anniversary and honor guests, the hotel completed a $19 million renovation of guestrooms, meeting spaces, bar, corridors and lobby in time for the anniversary.

“Grand Hyatt San Antonio is thrilled to celebrate 10 years of service to our guests and the City of San Antonio as its premiere meeting and leisure hotel,” said Ed Bucholtz, general manager of Grand Hyatt San Antonio.  “In time for our 10th anniversary, we completed a renovation providing guests with a new luxurious guestroom experience, expansive meeting space with state-of-the-art technology for groups and those hosting elegant affairs, an urbane bar and lounge with contemporary seating serving the latest craft beverages, and a sophisticated lobby to ensure leisure and business travelers are comfortable and feel at home while they are visiting San Antonio.”    

Capturing the essence of the city’s rich culture and its vibrant River Walk, the newly renovated property offers 1,003 modern and luxurious guestrooms including 46 spacious suites with panoramic views of the city.  Guests will experience new Hyatt Grand beds with luxury linens and ultramodern 55-inch flat-screen televisions.  The lavish accommodations are only topped by the plush indigo carpeting, rich ivory wall coverings, and warm-wooden tones of teak and birch to reflect San Antonio’s lush landscape and captivating rivers.  The guestrooms are accented by southwestern-style blues and browns featured in its contemporary furniture.  Designed with the latest technology, wireless high-speed internet is complimentary in all guestrooms and public spaces to keep guests connected without ever needing to leave the hotel.

Complementing the newly designed guestrooms, Grand Hyatt San Antonio’s corridors were also featured in the renovation including new carpet and wall coverings.  The floors and landings were modernized with warm, welcoming colors and similar finished wood tones as displayed in the guestrooms.  

Located next to San Antonio’s Henry B. Gonzalez Convention Center and connected to the world famous Alamodome via a foot bridge, Grand Hyatt San Antonio has 115,000 square feet of expansive indoor and outdoor space for company meetings and events.  Supporting groups and organizations visiting San Antonio, the recent renovation enhances the experiences of large meetings and events, while enriching the aesthetics of smaller meetings at the property.  The colors of the up-to-date wall coverings complement the meeting rooms’ new lush carpeting with shades of cornflower blue and royal yellow.  The meeting rooms are modernized with advanced lighting; state-of-the-art reader boards; the latest in audio visual technology; and high-tech special effects to help planners bring their meetings to life.         

Grand Hyatt San Antonio’s newly updated and expansive meeting space provides planners with 13 flexible indoor and outdoor venues from hosting sophisticated weddings and elegant social events in the Lone Star Ballroom to holding large corporate gatherings accommodating thousands of executives in the Texas Ballroom to having more intimate occasions in the hotel’s 29 smaller boardrooms and breakout rooms.  Taking advantage of San Antonio’s perfect weather conditions, the hotel has 5,200 square feet of exceptional balcony space overlooking the bustling city, its inspirational rolling hills, and famous river.

Completing the hotel’s renovation, Grand Hyatt San Antonio has increased the amount of seating in its popular Bar Rojo adding new modernized furniture that incorporates imbedded electrical outlets and wireless technology into the marble table tops and comfortable leather chairs.  The bar is outfitted with a new cherry red colored carpet highlighted by a honey-yellow spherical design.  Contemporary elegant gold lighting fixtures extend from the ceiling accentuating the ultra-modern wine, scarlet and amber colored chandelier inviting patrons to experience the ambiance of the bar while enjoying a handcrafted cocktail or artisan beer.

As guests enter the newly renovated Grand Hyatt San Antonio, they are greeted by exquisite wall coverings decorating the hotel’s main entrance.  Walking through the Italian tile and marble lobby, stylish furniture with easily accessible electrical outlets are positioned throughout the grand entrance to encourage networking and conversations among guests.  The new lobby is furnished with modern fixtures and embellished by contemporary chandeliers that extend from the ceiling and offer an aura of sophistication to the guests’ arrival.

The newly renovated hotel also includes a heated roof-top pool with morning yoga classes; state-of-the-art fitness center with cardio machines, free weights and stability balls; and three restaurants including Ruth’s Chris Steak House.  It is minutes away from San Antonio’s top attractions including the River Walk, The Alamo, Henry B.
