Accor has announced plans to add a Morgans Originals property in the US city of San Antonio.
Artista San Antonio is scheduled to open in 2023, and will be located in the Texan city’s Riverwalk area.
Facilities will include 112 rooms reflecting “an inspirational art-centric modern design with a nod to the Spanish colonial roots of San Antonio”, as well as 2,500 square feet of meeting and events space, and “several of the Morgan Original’s signature culinary and bar concepts”.
Morgans Originals was founded by SBE, in which Accor acquired full ownership last year, as part of plans to create a new global lifestyle hotel company with UK-based developer Ennsimore.
The brand’s portfolio currently comprises three properties – Sanderson London, St Martins Lane London and Shore Club Miami, with Legacy Hotels and Residences in Miami also set to join the collection.
Commenting on the news Chadi Farhat, chief operating officer of SBE, said:
“We are very proud to work with San Antonio developer Harris Bay and its Managing Partner, Jake Harris and the terrific architects at Creo to bring Artista to San Antonio.
“San Antonio is re-emerging as a premier destination and has been one of the United States’ undiscovered gems of culture and diversity for too long.
“Rich in history, San Antonio is a 300-year-old Spanish colonial city and we are excited to celebrate that culture on the Riverwalk at Artista San Antonio.”
Earlier this year Hilton opened its first Canopy hotel in San Antonio, and the fourth in the state of Texas, with the unveiling of the Canopy by Hilton San Antonio Riverwalk.
