One of the oldest cities in America, San Antonio offers an incredibly rich history and a diverse culture that families have enjoyed for generations. During the spring months in particular, our warm and constantly sunny weather provides visitors with a pleasant setting where they can enjoy The Alamo City’s many offerings. At the Omni La Mansión del Rio, we put families first, and our guests feel that the moment they walk into our lobby.
Much like the city that we call home, Omni La Mansión del Rio resides in a building that has a long and storied past. The property was originally home to the St. Mary’s Institute, which was opened on March 1, 1853 and was later relocated in 1966. In April of 1968, “La Mansión” - as it’s known by locals - opened its doors as the first luxury hotel on the San Antonio River Walk. An oasis of cypress-lined paths and famous attractions including the “Selena Bridge,” our city’s beloved River Walk winds through the heart of San Antonio and features river barge tours that showcase our incredibly rich history. The Omni La Mansión del Rio’s River Walk location allows families to easily access the best that San Antonio has to offer.

PRIDE IN OUR ASSOCIATES
We think of our entire staff as a family at Omni La Mansión del Rio, and we’re always proud to celebrate the achievements of one of our own. When Virginia Williams began her career at La Mansión back in 1968, she never imagined that she’d continue to welcome guests and walk the same halls almost 50 years later. During her tenure at La Mansión, “Ms. Virginia” has held a number of different positions including Room Attendant, Housekeeping Supervisor and her current position - Lobby Attendant. Her warm and friendly demeanor, compounded by her tireless dedication to the hotel has earned her a well-deserved reputation with both guests and co-workers.
Simply put, she explains “I love what I do; I love the interaction with the guests and my co-workers. When you love what you do, you are happy - even 49 years later.” Ms. Virginia sets the standard in which all associates at Omni La Mansión del Rio strive to meet. We are extremely proud to call her one of our own, as she embodies our property’s values of family, loyalty and dedication to quality.
