Tru by Hilton has expanded its Texas footprint by opening up its newest hotel in downtown San Antonio. This debut marks the second Tru by Hilton property in the state and its first adaptive reuse project, creating the Tru by Hilton Downtown San Antonio from the facade of the Gillespie Ford Building. The hotel is owned and managed by Baywood Hotels.

The first two floors of the new hotel kept the property’s original pie-shaped framework, while restoring the exterior stuccowork and creating a larger lobby area. The 95-key hotel Tru by Hilton features a complimentary build-your-own Top It breakfast bar, a 24/7 Eat. & Sip., mobile check-in, a social media wall, a fitness center, free Wi-Fi, a business center and a 2,880-square-foot lobby with work, play, eat and lounge areas.

“The San Antonio property is an example of how we are strategically pursuing adaptive reuse projects to open in higher barrier-to-entry markets,” said Alexandra Jaritz, global head, Tru by Hilton, in a prepared statement. “We want to be wherever our guests are traveling.”

Tru by Hilton Downtown San Antonio is within close proximity to the San Antonio Riverwalk, Six Flags Fiesta Texas, the Henry B. Gonzalez Convention Center, SeaWorld, the Alamo, Lackland Air Force Base and Rivercenter Mall.
