El Tropicano Riverwalk Hotel

A San Antonio Riverwalk Hotel

The El Tropicano Riverwalk Hotel is synonymous with San Antonio. Opening in 1962, The “El Trop,” as it’s been affectionately known for over 50 years, was the first hotel on San Antonio’s famed River Walk  Our 308-room urban oasis was inspired by the casual elegance of Acapulco's luxurious beach resorts. Mixing a tropical vibe with the unmistakable energy of the Southwest, it quickly became a regular draw for Hollywood’s elite, rock stars, trendsetters --- and at least one famous Texan who kicked his boots up on the desk in the Oval Office.

Step through our grand main entrance today and you’ll find a thoroughly modern and unique hotel experience, with delightful nods to that glittering, jet set era. Seated in the heart of the bustling River Walk’s progressive Museum Reach, our guests will find the all the gems of San Antonio beckoning  just minutes away, including the city’s best riverfront shopping and restaurants,  the Alamo, the South Bank, Market Square, HemisFair Park and the Tower of the Americas. Downtown’s exciting attractions and cultural must-sees are also a short walk, trolley or river taxi ride away, with El Tropicano guests enjoying hop-on/hop-off access.   

Any time is a great time to visit The El Tropicano Riverwalk Hotel; whether for a weekend retreat, family vacation, San Antonio wedding, romantic honeymoon, business conference or any other special event.
