The El Tropicano Riverwalk Hotel is synonymous with San Antonio. Opening in 1962, The “El Trop,” as it’s been affectionately known for over 50 years, was the first hotel on San Antonio’s famed River Walk Our 308-room urban oasis was inspired by the casual elegance of Acapulco's luxurious beach resorts. Mixing a tropical vibe with the unmistakable energy of the Southwest, it quickly became a regular draw for Hollywood’s elite, rock stars, trendsetters --- and at least one famous Texan who kicked his boots up on the desk in the Oval Office.
