Beverly Hills, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--The newly converted Hilton San Antonio Hill Country Hotel and Spa offers laidback accommodation with easy access to San Antonio's attractions. Located in the rolling hills dotted with centuries old live oaks and indigenous plants, there is no doubt why last summer The New York Times listed Texas's Hill Country as one of the top destinations to visit. Whether guests use the hotel as a home base from which to explore Hill Country, the Alamo, or to do business in San Antonio, this 227-room property provides a number of unique guest services, including three swimming pools, the Hill Country Spa, and its signature restaurant.
The Hilton San Antonio Hill Country Hotel & Spa is owned by PD San Antonio Associates, LLC under a franchise license agreement with a subsidiary of Hilton Hotels Corporation, and operated by Seattle-based Dow Hotel Company, a joint-venture partner in the ownership group.
"As the most recent addition to our San Antonio portfolio, this property offers a distinct and inspirational experience for guests visiting the region," said Jeff Diskin, senior vice president, Brand Management, Hilton Hotels & Resorts. "It encapsulates the Hilton brand's goal to not only deliver consistent and superior service, but also to offer guests a unique environment, influenced by the local culture and community, where they can have a successful visit, whether it be for business or pleasure."
Just 20 minutes from the world-famous Riverwalk and historic Alamo, and adjacent to the Sea World and Six Flag Fiesta Texas theme parks, the Hilton San Antonio Hill Country Hotel & Spa is conveniently located near all the historical and adventure destinations of San Antonio. Its prime position near Hill Country ideally positions it near the area's lakes, and is a great base for a fishing or hunting trip. Its three pools and lush courtyards featuring multiple fire pits make the hotel an excellent destination for relaxation and rejuvenation. For guests looking to maintain their health and fitness routines the hotel features an 1800 ft² fitness center with state-of-the-art Hilton Fitness by Precor equipment, as well as lap pool overlooking the nearby golf course. Guests seeking a bit of revitalization also can indulge at the full-service Hill Country Spa featuring a full menu of treatments, including a Vichy shower.
The lounge and adjacent Hill Country Bar, situated directly off of the lobby, are the heart of the hotel. Featuring soaring beamed ceilings, a massive flagstone fireplace, cozy sofas, plenty of barstools lining the thirty foot curved bar and wide bi-fold doors allowing in the fresh Hill Country air, the lounge provides guests with the right ambiance to kick off their boots and stay awhile, or to enjoy live entertainment on the weekends. The property's signature restaurant is open throughout the day and offers traditional American and Texan cuisine, including a number of homemade chilies ranging from the traditional flat iron chili, to wild game chili for the more adventurous diners. On warm days guests can cool down at the juice bar, which is open near the pools during the summer months.
The property also features 10,000 ft² of meeting space that opens up onto the property's courtyards. All meeting rooms offer wired and wireless high-speed Internet access and video messaging and conferencing capabilities. Business travelers and event guests are further accommodated by the property's business center.
