El Tropicano Hotel
In progress

Originally constructed in 1962 as the first hotel built on the Riverwalk, this historic gem transcends the typical notion of an urban hotel. The hotel is ready for a thorough renovation and reimagination that will convert it into an urban resort and swim club and fill a gap in the San Antonio market at price points at least 20% less than recent comps.The hotel will fully engage with the Riverwalk, offering three waterfront F&B outlets including a street front café, a 3-meal restaurant, and a pool bar/lounge. It will also offer 24,000 SF of state-of-the-art events space, inclusive of a new 5,100 square foot Riverview Ballroom that will sit on the waters’ edge.

The renovation will focus on integrating nature through honest moments of discovery in the built environment. All told, the lifestyle property will offer a resort-like destination experience that is unlike anything that exists in San Antonio.
