Travel and Hotel Information

San Antonio....

The Alamo remains the spiritual gem in the South Texas crown, but the countless other assets of San Antonio are also characterized by the River Walk that meanders through the heart of downtown and into the Germanic King William District, and by the grand Spanish missions, the festive Market Square, the historic Fort Sam Houston, and the unusual Buckhorn Saloon and Museum. San Antonio is the ninth-largest city in the US, so allow yourself lots of time to experience what San Antonio has to offer-or choose wisely.

All SESHA Sessions and the exhibition will take place at the San Antonio Marriott Rivercenter. The Marriott features over 1,000 guest rooms and over 80,000 square feet of meeting and exhibit space. The hotel's richly furnished guest rooms provide an elegant, upscale ambiance. The Marriott Rivercenter believes it's the little things that make the difference like the in-room coffeemaker, iron and ironing board, high speed internet access and hair dryers. Just beyond the rooms you will find everything to make your visit a memorable one. The Fitness Center offers a chance to re-energize, the Lobby Bar offers a quiet spot to unwind and meet friends.

Once you arrive at the Marriott, you won't need a car. The Marriott is located on the River Walk, within easy walking distance to restaurants and shopping. The hotel itself is connected to the Rivercenter Mall.
