The audio/visual system was refurbished, an enhanced sound system was added, as well as a new lighting and dimming system.  Additional upgrades include new banquet chairs, new artwork and mirrors, and new furniture in the ballroom’s pre-function space.  Overall the hotel features a total of 14,976 square feet of function space and 15 meeting rooms.

Marriott is on a mission to Lead The Future of Meetings and one of its most recent innovations involves rolling out a Meeting Services App which allows customers to manage their meetings more effectively. The Meeting Services App is currently available at the San Antonio Riverwalk.

The San Antonio Marriott Riverwalk is located in the heart of downtown San Antonio, with sweeping balcony views of San Antonio’s fabulous Riverwalk district. The 30-story hotel features a contemporary lobby with Texas flair featuring chili-red walls, dark-wood trim, and wrought-iron accents. A recipient of Meetings & Conventions Magazine’s Gold Award, the hotel is adjacent to the Henry B. Gonzalez Convention Center, and just three blocks from the Alamo. Facilities include 507 guest rooms and suites, Cactus Flower Restaurant, The Bar, a Starbucks® Coffee House, indoor and outdoor swimming pools, and a fitness center. For additional information on the San Antonio Marriott Riverwalk, call 210-224-4555 or
