Description: The hotel is centrally located in the heart of downtown, just 18 steps from the Alamo. The hotel stands where Davy Crockett once did and was carefully renovated to preserve its original grandeur in 1982, earning it a place on the National Register of Historic Structures. As a result of careful renovation in 1982, the Crockett Hotel is listed on the National Register of Historic Structures and architects Ford, Powell and Carson received the Historical Preservation Certification from the U.S. Department of Interior. Again renovated in 2007, guestrooms are dressed in the finest of furnishings and colors ranging from the soothing sage to a comforting cream, invoking the charm and elegance of a boutique hotel with interior shutters as well as local artistry depicting regional history. All 138 guestrooms are non-smoking (floor plans may vary). No pet policy. The courtyard rooms are no longer in existence. Come see the new Crockett Hotel. When remembering the Alamo, remember the Crockett Hotel.
