Grand Hyatt San Antonio marks 10th anniversary with completion of $19M renovation

The Grand Hyatt San Antonio marked its 10th anniversary with the completion of a $19-million renovation of its guestrooms, meeting spaces, bar, corridors and lobby.

The main entrance now has new wallcoverings, while new furniture—and electrical outlets—are positioned throughout the space. The new lobby also has new fixtures and chandeliers.

The 1,003 guestrooms now have new Hyatt Grand beds, 55-inch flat-screen televisions, indigo carpeting, ivory wall coverings, and wooden tones of teak and birch to reflect San Antonio’s landscape and rivers.  The guestrooms are also accented by blues and browns in the furniture.

Complementing the newly redesigned guestrooms, Grand Hyatt San Antonio’s corridors were also renovated to add new carpeting and wall coverings. The floors and landings use similar finished wood tones as displayed in the guestrooms. 

Located next to San Antonio’s Henry B. Gonzalez Convention Center and connected to the Alamodome via a foot bridge, Grand Hyatt San Antonio has 115,000 square feet of indoor and outdoor space for events. These were also renovated, including installing new wallcoverings and carpeting with shades of blue and yellow. The meeting rooms were also modernized with new lighting, new reader boards, audio visual technology and high-tech special effects. In total, the property has 13 indoor and outdoor venues, including the Lone Star Ballroom, Texas Ballroom, and 29 smaller boardrooms and breakout rooms. The property also has 5,200 square feet of balcony space overlooking the city, hills and the river.

Completing the hotel’s renovation, Grand Hyatt San Antonio increased the amount of seating in its Bar Rojo adding new furniture that incorporates imbedded electrical outlets and wireless technology into the marble table tops and leather chairs.  The bar now has a new cherry red colored carpet highlighted by a honey-yellow spherical design.  Gold lighting fixtures extend from the ceiling to accentuate the wine, scarlet and amber colored chandelier.

The newly renovated hotel also has a heated rooftop pool, fitness center and three restaurants, including Ruth’s Chris Steak House.
