Learn more about San Antonio

Although you’ll probably never want to leave the fabulous surrounds of the Marriott Plaza hotel, San Antonio holds many treasures in store for the curious adventurer.

The Marriott Plaza offers spacious, newly refurbished rooms with the vast majority having outdoor seating on a balcony. Its lush courtyard includes outdoor dining, a relaxing pool and spa with its very own peacock strolling the premise waiting for a photographic moment.

Walk across the street to Hemisfair Park, home of the Institute of Texas Cultures and Tower of the Americas. A quick stroll north of the hotel leads to the La Villita Historic Arts Village, the Briscoe Western Art Museum, and of course, the infamous Riverwalk and Alamo. A short walk south of the hotel leads to Southtown, an eclectic assortment of restaurants, cafes and galleries.

And some of the most popular places to eat in San Antonio are within walking distance – Dough pizzeria across the street, Chart House in the Tower of the Americas for an aerial view of downtown San Antonio, Rosarios Mexican restaurant in Southtown, Bliss for upscale, contemporary American cuisine, and the endless array of eateries on the Riverwalk.

With all the things to do and so many ways to relax in San Antonio, you may want to spend a couple extra days.

We sincerely hope you’ll join us for the 2019 Texas Association for Higher Education Assessment Conference in San Antonio. You won’t be disappointed!
