1. A highly respected elderly or middle-aged woman
2. A respected woman having extensive experience in her field.

Both of these definitions apply to the St. Anthony Hotel!

This hotel has hosted celebrities and royalty through its long and illustrious history as well as an inconceivable number of meetings and events! I was so please to read today that there are no plans in the works to close this venerable San Antonio institution! If that had been allowed to happen this city would have been the biggest loser! Meeting Professionals, the Meetings and Events Industry and most DMCs in San Antonio have already lost the ability to utilize one of our most historic and unique venues this year due to a downturn in the economy and the belief of its owners that the bottom line is more important than the quality, experience and reputation of a venue’s staff. The fact that this incredible hotel and its historic significance to this City has been saved from a similar fate is certainly great and most welcome news! We wish them continued success! If you haven’t seen this wonderful hotel lately….it’s an absolute gem!
