When it opened in 1962, The El Tropicano was the first hotel on San Antonio’s famed River Walk. Hip and fashionable from the start, the “El Trop” was inspired by the popularity and casual glamour of Acapulco beach resorts. The hotel quickly gained a reputation with movie stars, rock legends and at least one U.S. president from Texas, who all loved the hotel for its unique, tropical appeal.

Today, the El Tropicano is fashionably updated with a fun, retro twist that pays respect to the hotel’s original style. Nestled in the heart of the River Walk, guests are footsteps away from exciting restaurants and clubs on the original section of the River Walk and the “South Bank,” and the appeal of new cultural, dining and shopping experiences in the recent “Museum Reach” expansion on the river. Other top attractions, like the Alamo, Market Square, Hemisfair Park/Tower of the Americas are minutes away; all downtown attractions are easily accessible by foot, or on San Antonio’s unique river taxis, with exclusive on/off access for El Tropicano guests.

Beloved by locals and tourists alike, the El Tropicano is the perfect place for your weekend getaway, family vacation, San Antonio wedding, honeymoon, reunion or other special event. Our state-of-the art meeting facilities can accommodate groups from 10 to 1000.
