The Fairmount Hotel :: San Antonio Downtown Hotel Offers Victorian Charm & Décor
The Fairmount Hotel is a luxury San Antonio downtown hotel located across the street from the famous HemisFair Park. HemisFair '68 was the first officially designated world's fair held in the southwestern United States. San Antonio hosted the fair from April 6 through October 6, 1968. The fair's theme structure was the 750 foot tall Tower of the Americas, which still remains today. The top of the tower is home to a revolving restaurant, lounge, and outdoor observation deck.
Many Businesses and Countries had pavilions built on the fair grounds. The fair's largest pavilion belonged to the State of Texas. This pavilion remained after the fair closed and became the Institute of Texan Cultures, which is now operated as a museum and campus of the University of Texas at San Antonio. Many of the elegant rooms of this San Antonio downtown hotel feature balconies where you have a lovely view of HemisFair Park and Tower of the Americas.
