Thompson San Antonio, a new 162-room lifestyle hotel, opens today in San Antonio Texas' dynamic Arts District, along the city's celebrated River Walk. Bringing modern sophistication to the Texas Hill Country, the 20-story Thompson Hotels property captures the vibrant contemporary spirit of this historic Texas city.

Inspired by the intricate fabric of contemporary San Antonio, designer Mariana Valero of Mexico-based interior design firm Amass & G created a magnetic, inviting gathering place where travelers, locals and neighbors can be inspired. Thompson San Antonio's unapologetically stylish design pairs handcrafted materials, including natural parota wood and custom handstitched leather, with lavish furnishings and Texas-inspired touches. Residential-style indoor and outdoor spaces feature bold design elements, intriguing materials and textures, bespoke furniture and the curated works of internationally renowned artists and photographers. Captivating paintings, installations and sculptures are featured throughout the property, including original sculptures by Jeff Koons and Koray Akay, a limited-edition piece by Lucio Carvalho, photography by Lynne Douglas and a 3-D acrylic ink on aluminum painting from San Antonio-based artist, Eric Breish.

Serving as a refreshing and unexpected contrast to the sparkling River Walk, Thompson San Antonio's lobby welcomes guests to an environment of tailored design and rich textures. Dark flooring is softened with subtle abstract-patterned rugs, and black granite and rusted Corten steel contrast with natural wood walls paneled in a chevron pattern. A custom-designed floating staircase with vertical handrails wrapped in handstitched leather makes a statement as it draws the eye upward. Lighting is intimate, furnishings are layered for a residential feel, and rich touches, such as a bookcase surrounding a fireplace and large circular columns wrapped in artisan brass belts, tempt all who enter to get comfortable and stay awhile.

Thompson San Antonio's 162 guest rooms include 33 suites, offering floor-to-ceiling views of the urban horizon and the rolling Texas Hill Country beyond. Ranging from 350 to 2,400 square feet, guest rooms feature refined furnishings, such as custom sofas; sleek equestrian touches, including brown leather and buckle pillow-back headboards in some rooms; entirely bespoke case goods and entertainment centers; wet bars in suites; and spacious stone and glass bathrooms with rainfall showers, plus sculptural free-standing soaking tubs in suites.

Noteworthy in-room amenities include luxurious D.S. & Durga bath products, an espresso and coffee bar and a beverage and snack bar featuring regional makers such as Dallas-based Ranch Water and craft-distilled Saint Liberty Bertie's Bourbon Whiskey from Austin. Designed for entertaining, the Penthouse Suite features a pool table and private terrace, for a private playground unlike any other in San Antonio.
