The contemporary hotel is a stunning addition to the city’s skyline, offering a combination of facilities, services and amenities designed to meet the needs of discriminating business and leisure travelers.

Grand Hyatt San Antonio, a striking 1003-room, 37-story luxury hotel, opened this weekend in the bustling heart of “the Alamo City.” Adjacent to the Henry B. Gonzalez Convention Center and the famed San Antonio Riverwalk.

The third Hyatt in San Antonio and the 12th in Texas, the 1.5 million square-foot Grand Hyatt San Antonio features a sleek, glass dominated design, with more than 115,000 square feet of indoor and outdoor meeting space, capable of accommodating up to 3.600 guests. The facility boasts a 32,000 square foot main ballroom, a 21,000 square-foot junior ballroom and 29 breakout rooms.

Its bold, shimmering interiors, designed by Looney & Associates of Dallas, reflect a modern sensibility and a Latin flair, incorporating dramatic, sophisticated lighting and a color palette inspired by the region’s Mexican heritage. Local artists have been commissioned to produce painting and sculpture featured prominently in the hotel to express the particular combination of the traditional and the modern that make up San Antonio style.

Grand Hyatt San Antonio offers a variety of deluxe guestrooms, including 63 suites. All rooms feature pillow-top Hyatt Grand Beds™, 32-inch flat screen televisions with digital video-on-demand and premium cable, iHome alarm clocks, large workstations with high-speed wired and wireless internet access, chaise lounges, and luxury baths accented with imported white granite.

To keep guests productive on the road, Grand Hyatt San Antonio provides a range of services, including 24-hour concierge service, an on-site business center, express check-in and check-out kiosks, special VIP check-in options and Fast Board kiosks where guests can print their own airline boarding passes. To keep them fit, the hotel offers a fully equipped 24-Hour Stay Fit@Hyatt gym featuring Life Cycle equipment such as: stair steppers, treadmills, elliptical machine, rowing machines and free weights, as well as a heated outdoor pool with sundeck.

Dining options at the new Grand Hyatt San Antonio include the 350-seat Achiote River Café, on the river level of the hotel. Offering a breathtaking view of the River Walk and featuring executive chef Jeff Axell’s exciting new “Pan Latino” menu, the restaurant showcases the rich, culinary heritage of Mexico, South and Central America as well the foods of San Antonio’s vibrant, hybrid culture.

Bar Rojo, just off the lobby, makes a striking statement with its dramatic windows, red tile and marble interior. Its centerpiece chandelier, “El Corazon” (Spanish for “heart”) is a stunning red glass creation that illuminates the space with 42 lights. Destined to be the new “see and be seen” spot in downtown San Antonio, Bar Rojo “is elegant and casual, offering a full range of cocktails, including the signature drink the “R” and light menu.

The hotel opens in time to play host to many of the participants and attendees at the NCAA Men’s Division I Basketball Tournament, “The Final Four,” which will be played in San Antonio in April.
