Set on the world famed San Antonio Riverwalk, bringing back the spark of this downtown San Antonio jewel was the charge.  Built in the early 1960’s, El Tropicano exemplified the style of  the era.  Having lost its’ signature panache over time, Alamo Architects introduced a spirit inspired by the original design of the Hotel, but this time blended in character indicative of San Antonio and South Texas.  Sleek modern surfaces, cultural decorative elements, bright splashes of color, custom furnishings, along with a touch of the tropics are brought together to bring back the soul of El Tropicano.
