In a recent announcement from White Lodging, the company said it was ready to resume the conversion of its existing historic 251-room property into The Otis Hotel San Antonio. The property, formerly known as the Marriott Plaza Hotel, consists of three 19th century bungalows and renovation plans for these buildings were originally released in March 2020. Unfortunately, the project was put on hold due to the pandemic.
The redevelopment project for this new Otis hotel in San Antonio is taking place on a 4.5-acre site at 555 S. Alamo St, which was purchased by Indiana-based hotel management company White Lodging and REI Real Estate Services, August 2019. According to White Lodging General Manager Jean-Luc Barone, the property is in a prime location surrounded by lush gardens and landscaped grounds. He said the property provides a gateway to vibrant neighborhoods and the River Walk, and also plays a role in connecting the Downtown and Southtown areas.

The property’s three 19th-century bungalows are now set to resume the 15-month renovation project, which will transform the former hotel into The Otis Hotel San Antonio, a luxury getaway with modern amenities. Mike Banas, spokesman for White Lodging, gave more information on the redevelopment plans. Banas mentioned that new features added to the property will include a bar, day spa, resort-style pool, and restaurant offering cross-cultural cuisine. Two of the property’s historic bungalows, which once served as meeting and event spaces, will now be converted into a new day spa. While the last historic building will be converted into luxury bungalow-style suites.
Up to 10,000 square feet of indoor meeting space, plus some additional event space will still be available on the property. The event venue will be located around the urban oasis, making it the ideal location for business events, cocktail parties and weddings. Other renovations for the new Otis Hotel San Antonio will cover the rooms, balconies, exterior, porte cochere and lobby. Natural materials will also be used for the lobby and public areas to give guests a sense of the authentic and contemporary San Antonio experience. The opening date of this new luxury hotel is scheduled for the first half of 2023.
