When it opened in 1962, The El Tropicano was the first hotel on San Antonio’s famed Riverwalk. Hip and fashionable from the start, the “El Trop” was inspired by the popularity and casual glamour of Acapulco beach resorts. The hotel quickly gained a reputation with movie stars, rock legends and at least one U.S. president from Texas, who all loved the hotel for its unique, tropical appeal. Today, the El Tropicano is fashionably updated with a fun, retro twist that pays respect to the hotel's original style. Nestled in the heart of the Riverwalk, guests are footsteps away from exciting restaurants and clubs on the original section of the Riverwalk and the "South Bank". All downtown attractions are easily accessible by foot, or on San Antonio’s unique river taxis, with exclusive on/off access for El Tropicano guests. El Tropicano still ranks among the city's largest destinations in terms of overall conference space with 15 meeting rooms and 37,000 square feet of meeting space. Groups of 10 to 800 can be accommodated. There is a full service restaurant, the Tiki Bar and the Expresso Specialty Coffee Shop, all with outdoor verandas overlooking the scenic Riverwalk. Fitness enthusiasts rave about STRIVE, a state-of-the-art Health Club overlooking our fantastic outdoor heated pool. The pool deck features a seasonal TIKI bar with our own line of specialty drinks. Enjoy the evening fire pit, also located on the main pool deck.
