Make your next meeting unforgettable in San Antonio where you’ll find our people welcoming, our landscape charming and our city alive with possibility. Boasting nearly 45,000 guest rooms city-wide, with close to 14,000 located downtown when it comes to planning meetings, conferences and exhibitions, San Antonio offers endless options.
The River Walk, known as the “world’s largest hotel lobby,” offers a beautiful and historic setting for networking, exploring and entertaining. Its shaded stone pathways wind along the gently flowing San Antonio River through the city center, linking convention facilities, hotels, restaurants, shops, theaters, museums and more.
With a convenient River Walk location, the Henry B. González Convention Center and surrounding venues make getting to and from meetings a cinch, especially with 3,000 hotel rooms within a one-block radius. And in January 2016, the $325 million transformation of the center will be complete, featuring 514,000 square feet of contiguous exhibit space including 86,500 square feet of column-free multipurpose space and a new 54,000 square foot ballroom, the largest in Texas. Our eco-friendly design even includes 8 acres of parkland being added to adjacent Hemisfair Park, meaning everyone can take some time to enjoy San Antonio’s 300 days of sunshine a year.
