Inside the hotel

Project leaders of the new 17-story building described the building as giving Civic Park an abrazo (Spanish for hug) because of its curvature design.

Fun Fact: The grandfather of the Zachry Hospitality CEO + President, David Zachry, built the Palacio del Rio that’s located across the street.

What’s in the name?

The hotel name was inspired by the Monarch butterfly that migrates through San Antonio every winter. The Monarch San Antonio’s location will have the best of everything the Alamo City has to offer, like Civic Park, the River Walk, the Alamo, and La Villita — the hotel is anticipated to become one of the city’s cultural hubs for locals and visitors alike.

The Monarch San Antonio is under construction and set to open in early 2026.
