The Crockett Hotel
The Crockett Hotel is an historic hotel in San Antonio, that stands where Davy Crockett and an outnumbered band of Texas settlers defended the southeast palisade of the Alamo during a 13-day siege in Feb-March 1836. Mexican forces defeated the courageous defenders of the Alamo in that battle, but shouts of “Remember the Alamo” inspired the Texas and Sam Houston to victory over the Mexican army at San Jacinto just a little more than a month later.
The hotel property was converted from agricultural to commercial use after the battle, and in 1909 a fraternal organization built the current six story building to serve as a hotel and their fraternal lodge. The seven-story west wing was added in 1927.
The building was carefully renovated to preserve its original grandeur in 1982, earning it a place on the National Register of Historic Structures. In 2007, The Crockett Hotel was completely renovated once again. A section of guest rooms that had been added for the 1968 Worlds Fair was demolished to enhance the pool/patio area and this historic boutique hotels remarkable 7th floor suites and meeting space were brought back to their former glory.
