Overview The Most Treasured
of San Antonio Historic Hotels

Located on the grounds of the original Alamo compound, Hotel Gibbs was built by Colonel C.C. Gibbs in 1909 as San Antonio’s first high-rise. Since then, it has served as the homebase for the local Sheriff’s poker night, a tattoo parlor, and now, our one-of-a-kind hotel, offering the perfect blend of historic preservation and modern design.
