Exciting Alamo Suites offered by the Crockett Hotel
The Crockett Hotel is a historic hotel of San Antonio that stands where Davy Crockett and an outnumbered band of Texas settlers defended the southeast palisade of the Alamo during a 13-day siege in February-March, 1836. The Republic of Mexico forces defeated the defenders of the Alamo in that battle, but shouts of “Remember the Alamo” inspired the Texans and Sam Houston to victory over the Republic of Mexico at San Jacinto just a little more than a month later.
The property was converted from agricultural to commercial use after the war, and in 1909 a fraternal organization built the current six-story building to serve as a hotel and fraternal lodge. The seven-story west wing was added in 1927.
The building was carefully renovated to preserve its original grandeur in 1982, earning it a place on the National Register of Historic Structures. In 2007, the historic Crockett Hotel, a historic San Antonio Alamo Hotel, was completely renovated once again. A section of guestrooms that had been added for the 1968 World’s Fair was demolished to enhance the pool area, and this Alamo hotel’s remarkable 7th floor suites were brought back to their former glory.
