Bottom Line

The 1,003-room Grand Hyatt San Antonio is in a great location in the heart of the city’s historic center, right next to Henry B. Gonzalez Convention Center and within walking distance of the River Walk and the Alamo. Rooms have understated modern decor, plus flat-screen TVs, mini-fridges, and coffeemakers. Amenities like the full-service FedEx business center, modern meeting areas, and spacious work desks in rooms appeal to the business travelers, while a lovely lap pool, spacious sundeck, ultra-modern fitness center, and various on-site dining options appeal to all types of guests. Travelers who'd prefer a romantic Spanish Colonial vibe to a convention-hotel one should look into Omni La Mansion del Rio, a River Walk hotel with outstanding 19th-century architecture and atmosphere.

Oyster Hotel Review


A modern facility that appeals to both business and leisure travelers

The modern, efficient feel of the Grand Hyatt becomes evident the moment you pull up to its covered entryway, which is not unlike that of an airport terminal. Clearly marked signs direct you to parking and reception. As you make your way through the glass doors into the lobby, the utter spaciousness of the public areas stands out. Rather than feeling cold and impersonal, though, artistic accents make it feel inviting. Among the pieces decorating the lobby are glowing orb chandeliers, glass sculptures, and a dramatic oil painting of a flamenco dancer. Despite Grand Hyatt San Antonio's enormity, check-in and check-out (including video check-out) are efficient and straightforward. Grand Hyatt caters mostly to business travelers, but families and couples can appreciate the property’s service, location, and amenities. 


In the heart of San Antonio, within walking distance of the Alamo and just a stone’s throw away from the River Walk

The Grand Hyatt is located in downtown San Antonio close to the city’s main historical attractions. Guests can walk to any of a number of area attractions, including the Alamo, La Villita park, the River Walk, and Tower of the Americas.

  • Five-minute walk to the River Walk, Henry B. Gonzalez Convention Center, and Tower of the Americas
  • Eight-minute walk to the Alamo
  • 11-minute walk to the Alamodome
  • 15-minute walk to the King William Historical District
  • 20-minute drive to San Antonio International Airport


Spacious, comfortable, modern, and bright

The Grand Hyatt’s rooms start at a spacious 340 square feet (suites start at 750 square feet). All feature understated, contemporary furnishings in earth tones, with modern features such as large flat-screen TVs with premium cable, motion-detected bathroom lighting, and free Wi-Fi. Wide writing desks come with adjustable-arm reading lamps and leather swivel desk chairs. There are coffeemakers and empty mini-fridges in every room. Most bathrooms have shower/tub combos, and many suites have attractive freestanding soaking tubs and separate walk-in showers. All bathrooms come with June Jacobs toiletries. South-facing rooms have views of Tower of the Americas and Alamodome. Concierge-level rooms come with access to a lounge with free breakfast and evening drinks and light bites. 


Plenty of amenities for both the business and leisure traveler, though you’ll find yourself paying to use some of them

Grand Hyatt San Antonio's lovely 25-yard heated lap pool is located on the rooftop and is open year round. Beware of its gray-tile deck, which can get dangerously hot in the Texas summer sun. The fitness center is spacious; open 24 hours; and very well-equipped with modern LifeFitness machinery, free weights, exercise balls and bands, and weight bars. It offers excellent city views from its fifth-floor, floor-to-ceiling windows. The hotel's so-called "fitness concierge" can provide loaner workout clothing, GPS armbands, and maps of nearby jogging trails.

Ruth's Chris Steak House features beautiful views of the River Walk, outdoor seating, and serves breakfast, lunch, and dinner. Bar Rojo is a casual-yet-upscale lounge serving specialty drinks and classic cocktails as well as small plates. The 24-hour Perks Coffee offers ready-made sandwiches and an assortment of snacks, as well as Starbucks coffee. Room service is provided by Ruth's Chris from early in the morning until late at night.

A number of Grand Hyatt San Antonio's features are geared toward business travelers, including the numerous meeting facilities, some with spacious balconies overlooking the city. Plus, the Grand Hyatt, in partnership with FedEx, offers a shipping and business center for mailing packages or purchasing shipping supplies. Adjacent to the shipping facility is a 24-hour business center with pay-to-use computer terminals (credit card required) and a printer.

Pets up to 50 pounds are permitted; a non-refundable cleaning fee is required for some stays. Valet and self-parking are available for a fee. Wi-Fi is free throughout.
