New Canopy by Hilton Hotel Announced for San Antonio
- Jan 23, 2017
San Antonio—Crockett Urban Ventures and Merritt Development Group have announced plans to develop Canopy by Hilton San Antonio River Walk. The hotel will be managed by White Lodging Services.
“The location in San Antonio is in the heart of downtown San Antonio with numerous area restaurants, bars and entertainment venues,” David Merritt, president of Merritt Development Group, said in prepared remarks. The asset will be located along the River Walk at the northwest corner of North St. Mary’s and Commerce streets. Groundbreaking is scheduled for January 2017, with completion slated for the fall of 2018. The hotel will integrate the Civil War-era Alamo Fish Market building into its 22-story design.
“It was important for us to include the Alamo Fish Market building into the design of the hotel,” added Chris Hill of Crockett Urban Ventures. “Incorporating the building into the hotel is not only an integral element of the authenticity of the Canopy brand, but also maintains an important historic element to the corridor.”
Canopy by Hilton San Antonio River Walk will feature more than 3,000 square feet of meeting space, 195 rooms and a restaurant with an outdoor terrace overlooking the River Walk. “Canopy by Hilton redefines the lifestyle segment and brings guests closer to the neighborhoods in which they travel,” said Gary Steffen, global head, Canopy by Hilton. “The River Walk neighborhood in San Antonio perfectly aligns with the ethos of Canopy by Hilton.”
