Celebrating its 10th anniversary on the River Walk, the 1,003-room Grand Hyatt San Antonio has completed a $19 million renovation of guest rooms and meeting spaces, as well as the bar, corridors and lobby. The property is adjacent to the Henry B. Gonzalez Convention Center and connected to the Alamodome by a foot bridge.

"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 the property.  "In time for our 10th anniversary, we completed a renovation providing guests with a new luxurious guest-room 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." 

The guest rooms, including 46 suites, now sport Hyatt Grand beds with luxury linens, and 55-inch flat-screen televisions. The decor features plush indigo carpeting, ivory wall coverings and warm wooden tones of teak and birch.

The property welcomes groups to its 115,000 square feet of indoor and outdoor event space. The meeting rooms have been modernized with advanced lighting, state-of-the-art reader boards, the latest in audiovisual technology and the ability to employ high-tech special effects.         

The amount of seating the hotel's popular Bar Rojo has been expanded, adding new furniture power outlets into the marble table tops and leather chairs, perfect for charging while enjoying a handcrafted cocktail or artisan beer. 

Among the amenities at the Grand Hyatt San Antonio are a heated rooftop pool, a state-of-the-art fitness center and three restaurants including a Ruth's Chris Steak House. Perks Coffee shop is open 24 hours a day.
