The Westin Riverwalk, San Antonio Unveils Extensive Renovation of Hotel

The Westin Riverwalk San Antonio

SAN ANTONIO – June 21, 2023 – Situated in the most visited city in
Texas alongside the iconic River Walk, The Westin Riverwalk, San Antonio
[1] proudly announces the completion of a refresh that enhanced many
areas of the hotel. Beginning a new chapter in its 24-year heritage, the
elevated revamp includes development to its guest rooms and corridors, a
full renovation of the Business Center, public restrooms, and fitness
center, as well as a full restoration of the on-site restaurant and
bar, ZoccaCuisine D’Italia [4]. Providing a tranquil yet elite
hospitality experience, the eight-month transformation is an eclectic
mix, blending traditional design and contemporary-inspired elements
together.

           “We’re beyond thrilled to see our vision come to life,”
said Maria Martinez, General Manager of The Westin Riverwalk, San
Antonio. “Knowing the exceptional level of service we already provide,
this was the natural next step to elevate the total guest experience. We
didn’t want to lose the existing charm people have come to know and
love, so we built upon our authentic riverfront locale and delivered
certain luxuries to mirror the premium status of the hotel, leaving
guests feeling refreshed and inspired while still paying homage to San
Antonio’s culture.”

Leading the visionary charge, Dallas-based interior design firm, Waldrop
+ Nichols created a design paying tribute to the rich legacy of all its’
own, with a warm inviting residential feel and quality. The interior
architecture and design are elegant, sophisticated, and elevated, yet
extremely approachable. The new Business Center, just off from the lobby
is a stunning focal point with flexible seating options to accommodate
both individual, as well as small group needs. The dichotomy of the
lobby and the collaborative workspace ensures balance with complimenting
tones of elaborate blue indigo and wood lacquer finishes blending
seamlessly together for an overall heterogeneous feel. The guest room
restoration includes bathroom enhancements for certain room types which
have been upgraded with walk-in showers using natural stone accents, as
well as the Westin heavenly shower package for all guest rooms. Upgraded
elevators and guest room floor corridors reference Spanish medallions
providing inspiration for the new axminister carpet design woven in rich
colors of clay and sand. The revitalized WestinWORKOUT® Fitness Studio
aligns with the Westin brand design guests have come to know and expect
to maximize travel workouts, including custom millwork features.

The center of attention lies at Zocca Cuisine D’Italia [4], the
on-site restaurant and bar that serves up Italian-inspired dishes with a
Texas twist. Zocca’s impressive new bar provides an immersive
indoor-outdoor integration between the interior and the patio along the
San Antonio River Walk. With easy-to-see TVs and a relaxed, comfortable
feel, the bar also features a walk-up component for guests of the River
Walk as well as bar seating that allows viewing directly into the
restaurant. Zocca’s new interiors are both eye-catching and
open-concept inclusive of a lounge area perfect for nightlife vibes,
contemporary tables and chairs, cozy walled-in booths, cushioned
banquette seating areas, and a vino-inspired private dining room. Gold
accents, fresco murals, fragmented stone, patterned tile, and more add
just the right amount of flair.
