History of the Hilton Palacio del Rio

A Tall Story
The Hilton Palacio del Rio Hotel is a milestone, not only for the City of San Antonio, but for the modular construction industry as well. Built by H.B. Zachry Company across the street from the site of  HemisFair, the Texas World's Exposition of 1968, the hotel was designed, completed and occupied in an unprecedented period of 202 working days. This is an achievement of which H.B. Zachry, Sr. and each of his workers can be proud. Read More
