This 4-star Wyndham hotel overlooking the San Antonio River Walk has onsite restaurant and bar
San Antonio’s pulsing heart is its River Walk. Here, visitors and locals alike dine at restaurants, shop at boutiques, and follow the waterside path toward the Alamo, which is located just east of the river. The Wyndham San Antonio River Walk is just a short walk from the Alamo and other major attractions downtown.
In the late 1920s, architect Robert H. H. Hugman designed an urban park around the San Antonio River. He envisioned a space that would be the American version of Venice, where people could shop and dine along the waterfront. The original section, a 2.5-mile riverwalk running through downtown, was completed in 1941. It’s been a vital artery in the heart of San Antonio ever since; so vital, in fact, that the city added two extensions in the 2000s—Museum Reach and Mission Reach—that elongated the riverwalk to 15 miles total.
Located one story below street level, the downtown section of the riverwalk bustles day and night. Stone pathways on either side of the river wind past waterfalls and public art installations on their way to restaurants, boutiques, and lively cantinas that stay open well into the night. Downtown San Antonio is also where you’ll find the Alamo. The historic mission-turned-fortress is one of the most visited tourist sites in the state, thanks to the 1836 battle that made it a symbol of Texas independence. Admission is free for all ages.
