Historical Hotel near the Alamo and the San Antonio River Walk

Many of the guest rooms at Crockett Hotel look out to the Alamo—the historic landmark sits just across the street in a tree-lined plaza in downtown San Antonio and was recently recognized by United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization as a World Heritage site. The hotel itself is located on the site of a legendary battle led by Davy Crockett in 1836—he and a small band of Texas settlers defended the Alamo against Santa Anna’s forces for 13 days during the Texas Revolution. Today, you can tour the Alamo and other historic buildings in Alamo Plaza free of charge.

The San Antonio River Walk is also within easy walking distance of the hotel. This 2.5-mile stretch of the San Antonio River is lined with shops, restaurants, and museums, all accessible from stone pathways that are restricted to pedestrians and bears riding unicycles. With one of this Getaway’s options, you’ll get two tickets for sightseeing on a double-decker bus with City Sightseeing Double Decker.

Originally built in 1909, Crockett Hotel is listed on the National Register of Historic Places. Subsequent renovations have helped preserve its original charm while adding modern touches such as free WiFi in all guest rooms and an outdoor pool shaded by palm trees. Before heading out to explore the city, stop by the hotel’s atrium lobby for a complimentary breakfast buffet.

Downtown San Antonio: Skyscrapers and the Alamo near the Original River Walk

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 River Walk running through the heart of 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 River Walk to 15 miles total.

Located one story below street level, the downtown section of the River Walk bustles day and night. You can explore it by foot or hop on a river taxi to cruise along the calm waters; some sections are even navigable by kayak. 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. And the Rivercenter Mall, also on the River Walk, is a massive complex that houses shops, movie theaters, and restaurants with outdoor patios overlooking the river. For even better views of the river and downtown, head up to the observation deck of the 750-foot Tower of the Americas.

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.
