Embassy Suites Hotels has opened the Embassy Suites San Antonio Riverwalk – Downtown, located on the historic Riverwalk in central San Antonio.
The Embassy Suites San Antonio Riverwalk – Downtown incorporates the brand’s usual water feature, with water cascading over multiple waterfalls before flowing into the San Antonio River under the Paseo del Rio. The new property will include chef John Besh’s Franco German-inspired brasserie, Lüke, the chef’s first venture outside of the New Orleans area.
Located directly on the Riverwalk at 125 East Houston Street, the 285-suite hotel is operated by Dimension Development, of Natchitoches, Louisiana. Dimension Development has been the recipient of numerous development awards from Hilton Worldwide, including ‘2010 Conversion of the Year’ for The Roosevelt New Orleans, part of the Waldorf Astoria Collection. The Embassy Suites San Antonio Riverwalk – Downtown is owned by Blanco Rio, Ltd.
The Embassy Suites San Antonio Riverwalk – Downtown is the third Embassy Suites in the San Antonio area and the 22nd in Texas. The property features a panoramic, multi-story lobby oasis with direct views of the Riverwalk area. The full-service, all-suite property features 11,589 square feet of meeting space equipped to accommodate 900 guests indoors, while outdoor terraces offer options for a one-of-a-kind events.
“The downtown location of this hotel offers proximity to interesting attractions for leisure travelers and great convenience for corporate guests,” says Jim Holthouser, global head of Embassy Suites and full-service brands for Hilton Worldwide, Embassy Suites Hotels’ parent company. “We’ve worked with Dimension Development on several Embassy Suites projects, and really enjoy this highly productive partnership.”
Embassy Suites’ new San Antonio hotel is surrounded by shops, a wide variety of dining options, theaters, museums and theme parks. Attractively landscaped, the area features pathways, waterfalls, relaxing patios and outdoor art.
Chef John Besh will offer guests and San Antonio residents a menu filled with robust local flavors. The gastro-pub and beer house feel will set the standard for casual dining in an appealing space situated on the Riverwalk.

It’s a tremendous enhancement for this vibrant community.”
