San Antonio Marriott Rivercenter Unveils Complete Renovation of Hotel

Downtown San Antonio Convention Hotel Transforms 1,000 Guest Rooms, Common Areas, Dining Outlets, Meeting and Event Space

USA, San Antonio, Texas. August 19, 2020

The San Antonio Marriott Rivercenter, part of Marriott International Inc., reveals that a renovation of the entire hotel was completed in early March 2020.

The San Antonio Marriott Rivercenter, one of the largest hotels in downtown San Antonio, spent 2019 undergoing an extensive renovation of all 1,000 guest rooms, public areas, and food and beverage outlets. Additionally, more than 11,000 square feet of meeting and event space was added, bringing the hotel to a total of 70,000 square feet of flexible event space.

All guest rooms, suites and common space areas were renovated and refurnished to feature a more modern and luxurious design. The hotel's lobby and common areas underwent a complete redesign, and now features two new dining experiences, complete with a new market, restaurant, and bar.

Tributary, the hotel's main restaurant, offers Texas-modern cuisine and cocktails with a "crafted, not complicated" attitude in a stylish setting. The chef-driven restaurant features artisan, seasonal dishes, and sources fresh ingredients from local and regional farming partners. Tributary is open daily for breakfast, lunch, and dinner, and offers weekend brunch, available for to-go orders and curbside pickup.

Cafe Bocadillo is the hotel's grab-and-go market serving snacks, made-to-order items like breakfast pastries, breakfast tacos, salads, and Starbucks® coffee in addition to toiletries and other necessities for guests' convenience.

The hotel also features an expansive 24-hour health club with fitness equipment and an indoor-outdoor swimming pool. Additionally, the property now offers an M-Club, a 24-hour destination for Marriott elite members. Marriott's most valued customers will discover an upscale space to retreat, recharge and refocus with food and beverage offerings and a private environment to work and play.

"We are proud to welcome guests to experience the fresh new Marriott Rivercenter with our modern guest rooms, elevated dining options and state-of-the-art meeting spaces," said Suzy Hart, general manager of San Antonio Marriott Rivercenter. "We look forward to providing our guests true Texas hospitality during their stay."

As the world shifts into a new state, The San Antonio Marriott Rivercenter is committed to providing guests with an environment that aligns with expert protocols. The Marriott Cleanliness Council is devoted to ensuring the health of our guests and associates by going above and beyond cleanliness protocols of public spaces and guest rooms, enforcing social distancing and installing hand sanitizer stations throughout the hotel.

Additionally, the property is now conducting virtual tours of the 70,136 square feet of meeting space with socially distant setups via video conference calls for those who wish to plan their event from afar.

The San Antonio Marriott Rivercenter hotel is located just steps from the hundreds of attractions and restaurants at the River Walk at 101 Bowie St., San Antonio TX 78205.

Hotel Law: Protecting Guest Privacy

Every business is obligated to protect their customers from identity theft but unfortunately, data breaches have become all too common. In an effort to protect a guest's right to privacy and to safeguard their personal data, the European Union passed a General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) that could hold hotels legally liable for any breaches that expose a customer's sensitive personal information. Though the GDPR only pertains to EU citizens' data, any international business that mishandles their data can be legally responsible. Another legal issue of concern is the fight involving hotel "resort fees." Several states attorney generals have recently filed suit against two major hotel chains in an effort to litigate this practice. Their suit alleges that these companies are "engaged in deceptive and misleading pricing practices and their failure to disclose fees is in violation of consumer protection laws." The suit seeks to force the hotel chains to advertise the true price of their hotel rooms. There are several other legal issues that the industry is being forced to address. Sexual harassment prevention in the workplace is still top of mind for hotel employers-particularly in New York and California, which now statutorily require harassment training. Hotels and motels in California will also soon be required to train all their employees on human trafficking awareness. Immigration issues are also of major concern to hotel employers, especially in the midst of a severe labor shortage. The government is issuing fewer H2B visas for low-skilled workers, as well as J-1 visas for temporary workers. Though there is little hope for any comprehensive immigration reform, hotel lobbying groups are actively seeking legal remedies to alleviate this problem. These are just a few of the critical issues that the December issue of the Hotel Business Review will examine in the area of hotel law.
