A multimillion-dollar project that affected all corners of the San Antonio Marriott Rivercenter has been completed at the 1,000-room hotel, one of the largest in the city. The property’s meeting and event space was increased by 11,000 square feet during the renovation, to a total of 70,136 square feet.
All 1,000 guest rooms, including 86 suites, were refreshed at the hotel. As part of the upgrades, vinyl flooring was added for a luxury, residential feel.
The renovations also covered all public areas and updated the property with touchless experiences such as electronic access to elevators and guest rooms. Groups now have 10,000 square feet of new meeting space available on the second floor, and three new conference rooms on the third floor. The property’s concierge lounge was expanded with the brand’s M Club, which overlooks the Alamo. The foyer also was renovated to allow for more prefunction and breakout space.
The open concept of the hotel’s lobby now offers two revamped food-and-beverage options: the Sundry for grab-and-go convenience, and Café Bocadillo, a casual coffeehouse serving light bites. The signature restaurant, Tributary, focuses on seasonal and local ingredients for its Texas modern cuisine.
The San Antonio Marriott Rivercenter is on the River Walk, and within walking distance of the Henry B. Gonzalez Convention Center and the Alamo. For events that need more space and rooms, planners can annex the hotel’s sister property just across East Commerce Street, the 507-room San Antonio Marriott Riverwalk, with another 17,000 square feet of meeting space.
