The elegant and timeless charm of the St. Anthony Hotel is legendary in the Alamo City. Opened in 1909, the “Queen of San Antonio” recently received a major facelift after undergoing massive renovations.

Updated features include two new culinary hot spots: Rebelle, from restaurateur Andrew Goodman with acclaimed chef Stefan Bowers, and Haunt, a cocktail bar also helmed by Goodman and Bowers, serving classic cocktails inspired by the haunting legends of the St. Anthony.

Featuring 277 guest rooms and suites and 31,500 square feet of indoor and outdoor meeting space in downtown San Antonio, the hotel delivers a luxurious atmosphere of sweeping views, opulent decor, and the same cozy ambiance that has made the likes of John Wayne, Babe Ruth, Lyndon B. Johnson, and Cary Grant want to stay awhile.

The lobby of the St. Anthony depicts the hotel's "St. Anthony green" theme, a color interior designer Dorothy Draper introduced in the 1950s. 

Sip on a cocktail at the St. Anthony Club while you listen to live jazz music. The lounge was once an exclusive members-only club but is now open to the public.

The St. Anthony has 277 guest rooms. Notice the St. Anthony green in the benches at the foot of the beds.

An updated bathroom. 

The bedroom of a St. Anthony suite. Throw pillows on the chaise add a pretty pop of that signature green.

Living room suite feels more like a home than a hotel, with a conversation area and dining table that seats six.

The St. Anthony Hotel features more than 31,500 square feet of indoor and outdoor meeting and event space.
