The Omni La Mansión del Rio is centrally located in the heart of downtown San Antonio, making it a great spot for families looking to explore all of the city’s great attractions. One popular attraction is the San Antonio Zoo, which is just a quick 15-minute drive from the hotel. San Antonio's zoo initially consisted of a collection of animals assembled in San Pedro Park in the 1800s. Its now home to a wide variety of animals representing 750 species on 56 acres, of which 34 acres are public pathways. More than 1,000,000 guests visit the San Antonio Zoo annually – many being children participating in education programs or students attending field trips. 

Exploring both the Omni La Mansión del Rio and the San Antonio Zoo will allow your family to have a fun-filled, educational vacation. The hotel also offers many activities geared for kids like historical property tours, scavenger hunts, kids' turndown service and complimentary Omni Kids backpacks upon arrival.
