Experience San Antonio Attractions at the Hotel Crockett


For true Texan cultures, few locations are better than being across the street from the Alamo and near other great San Antonio area attractions. The gateway to the RiverWalk is also across the street, along with an upscale shopping mall.

The Crockett Hotel located near the Riverwalk and the Alamo in Downtown San Antonio has it all location-wise. It is a gem of a hotel in the heart of hallowed ground in Texas near many activities and area attractions, made to sparkle again with a multi-million-dollar renovation. Here is a sampling of Downtown San Antonio activities and attractions you’ll find within walking distance:

Visiting San Antonio's Alamo

San Antonio Missions - World Heritage Site

Mission San Jose

Our San Antonio Missions (including The Alamo) are taking their place among other great American historic and cultural institutions like the Statue of Liberty and Independence Hall, in additional to natural treasures such as the Grand Canyon and world wonders like the Great Wall of China.

The Missions are the largest collection of the Spanish colonial architecture in North America. They are only the third designation in the U.S. in the last 20 years.

It's time for the world to "Remember the Alamo," the first San Antonio mission.
