Getting You There

Welcome to San Antonio!

San Antonio's River Walk, Spanish colonial architecture, and fountain-laden parks and plazas make it one of America's most picturesque cities. Today, this seventeenth century metropolis is the seventh largest city in the nation with contemporary venues and lavish accommodations, all while maintaining an old world heritage exuded through diverse artistry, ethnic cuisine and an intimate and exquisite culture.

San Antonio boasts over 300 days of sunshine a year, with average highs in the upper-60s in February.

With an exceptional location downtown on the renowned River Walk, the Henry B. Gonzales Convention Center is within walking distance (via street level or the River Walk) of historical attractions, restaurants and shops.
