The new 162-room Thompson San Antonio opened Feb. 25 in the Texas city's North River Walk neighborhood, near the Tobin Center for the Performing Arts, the Alamo and the San Antonio Museum of Art.
The residential-style indoor and outdoor spaces with Texas-inspired touches, like hand-stitched leather and parota wood, come from designer Mariana Valero of Mexico-based Amass & G. The hotel features 33 suites, including the penthouse with a pool table and a private terrace.
“A modern-day interpretation of the River City, Thompson San Antonio offers sophisticated experiences inspired by the rich history and culture of the area,” said Ted Knighton, the new hotel's general manager. “We are delighted to introduce guests and the local community to a sophisticated new style of hotel in San Antonio, with elevated culinary offerings, exceptional service, a sought-after social scene and jaw-dropping views of the city skyline.”
Four dining and drink establishments are on property. Landrace, run by James Beard-award finalist and local-favorite chef Steve McHugh, features seasonal menus using ingredients from local growers. The 200-seat restaurant has a 40-seat riverfront terrace. Up on the 20th-floor rooftop, the Moon's Daughters has a mix of indoor and outdoor spaces and will feature live music scheduled around the lunar cycle. The Mediterranean menu has been created by executive chef Robert Cantu. The fourth-floor pool deck has an al fresco bar, and the lobby bar rounds out the offerings.
About 10,000 square feet of indoor and outdoor event space is available for groups. The largest is the 2,574-square-foot ballroom with floor-to-ceiling windows.
For a relaxing break, the 5,000-square-foot Thompson Spa offers five treatment rooms with an array of luxuriant indulgences on the menu. Exercise classes and the opportunity to work out at any time are available at the 24-hour, state-of-the-art fitness center.
