Kraemer Design Group completes redesign of Holiday Inn San Antonio Riverwalk

Detroit-based Kraemer Design Group, PLC (KDG) has announced the completion of a custom architectural and interior redesign of the Holiday Inn San Antonio-Riverwalk in San Antonio, Texas. The renovation cost totaled $13 million.

The 23-story, 313-room Holiday Inn San Antonio-Riverwalk is the first property nationally to introduce Intercontinental Hotel Group’s (IHG) “Breeze” standard room design scheme, centered on modern and open layouts with a clean aesthetic. The Holiday Inn is a part of the San Antonio-Riverwalk’s historic district.

To update the appearance of the hotel, which first opened in 1987 to meet IHG’s 2013 brand standards, KDG tackled a number of design challenges, including closing in balconies to increase square footage in the guestrooms and restructuring the multi-tiered restaurant to become more handicap accessible.
