SAN ANTONIO, TX (March 2024) – Today, InterContinental Hotels & Resorts, part of IHG Hotels & Resorts’ luxury & lifestyle portfolio, announces the Summer 2024 opening of InterContinental San Antonio Riverwalk. The 21-story property, boasting incredible views, features 390 rooms with 20 suites, 18,000-sqft of meeting space, a Club InterContinental lounge, and four unique restaurant and bar concepts. Located in the bustling downtown Riverwalk neighborhood – and less than a mile from the Henry B. Gonzalez Convention Center – the InterContinental San Antonio Riverwalk will offer direct access to the landmark pedestrian promenade as well as easy access to a water taxi-landing zone.

At the helm is the newly appointed General Manager Stefan Gruvberger, who brings nearly 30 years of global hospitality experience with him to Texas. Gruvberger has led numerous hospitality teams throughout his tenure and is looking forward to captivating guests and locals alike with meaningful, culturally rich experiences.

“InterContinental San Antonio Riverwalk will bring a fresh take on luxury to the dynamic and diverse city of San Antonio,” Gruvberger says. “Our property will bring world-class accommodations, modern amenities and innovative design to guests while forging a deep connection to the local community through unique programming, transformative experiences and more,” he added. “It truly will be the best of both worlds.”

Boasting more than 18,000-sqft of meeting and event space, InterContinental San Antonio Riverwalk offers stunning spaces, from an intimate board room with the latest A/V, to an 8,000-sqft ballroom with 18ft ceilings. The property is also equipped with luxurious amenities that include a 1,800-sqft state-of-the-art fitness center, Les Clefs d’Or concierges with unrivalled local and cultural knowledge, on-site valet parking services along with an ample self-park garage, dedicated house cars, same-day dry cleaning services, shoeshine capability, childcare assistance, and a Club InterContinental lounge, to name a few.

Owned by Trailbreak Partners in conjunction with Scarlett Hotel Group, the hotel brings a new sense of worldly luxury and refined ambiance to the area. Designed by Leo A Daly in conjunction with the internal IHG design team, the overall aesthetic is inspired by classic film heroine Joan Crawford and the golden age of Hollywood. It seamlessly blends mid-century architecture and furnishings with elegant, yet striking, finishes. Plush velvet furniture in various pops of color offset the otherwise neutral color palette, and the space comes to life through the rich finishes that consist of brass, marble, dark wood, cognac leather and glass.

In conjunction with Heartwood Hospitality, InterContinental San Antonio Riverwalk will house four unique on-property restaurant and bar concepts poised to be new neighborhood favorites, including a ground floor American brasserie; a sociable third floor rooftop pool and cocktail oasis; a grab-and-go all-day café and coffee shop; and a luxurious lobby bar with an extensive cocktail menu.

The anticipated 2024 summer opening will be part of IHG Hotels & Resorts’ robust 2024 development pipeline in Texas, with 15 new properties opening across eight brands in all stay categories, including lifestyle, luxury, premium, essentials and suites. The opening also marks more than seven decades of InterContinental Hotels & Resorts’ experience pioneering luxury travel in new and emerging destinations.

InterContinental San Antonio Riverwalk is located at 111 E Pecan Street, and is now taking reservations as early as November 2024.
