The St. Anthony Hotel is an amazing sight to see. St. Anthony Hotel is a historic 10-story hotel in downtown San Antonio, Texas. Built-in 1909, it was considered one of the most luxurious hotels in the United States and hosted a wide range of film stars, royalty, and other famous guests.
Yes, it’s a BIG DEAL!
St. Anthony was the first luxury hotel in the city. All the rooms had mahogany moldings and furnishings and telephones; half of the rooms had private baths. It was so technologically advanced that it was considered among the world’s most modern hotels. The hotel also featured a richly appointed bar and lounge named “Peacock Alley”, added in the 1930s. The hotel’s St. Anthony Club restaurant also became well known for its excellent food. In 1915, the owners doubled the capacity of the hotel to 430 rooms.
The St. Anthony Hotel has hosted a number of famous people. These include President Franklin D. Roosevelt, President Dwight D. Eisenhower, and Lyndon B. Johnson spent his honeymoon here.
