This early 20th century high-rise in Downtown San Antonio, once an ultra-modern marvel, is now easily overshadowed by its taller, more publicized neighbors. The relatively young hotel operating out of the 110-year-old structure quietly cares for its guests with comfortable rooms, complimentary breakfast tacos, and a bar that celebrates happy hour all day, every day, seeming to withdraw itself from the local competition to be the most aggressively special hospitality provider in town.
Nothing about the Hotel Indigo’s subtly dated exterior or cheerfully welcoming décor hints at the bloody horrors the ground beneath it has witnessed. Yet many believe the past can never be quieted.
Not to be confused with the Hotel Indigo-Riverwalk half a mile north, the Hotel Indigo San Antonio at the Alamo, sometimes known as the Gibbs Hotel, is as close as you can get to rooming inside of San Antonio’s legendary last stand, without getting yourself locked in overnight at the museum across the street.
