What came before Sixth and Guadalupe?

A city block deeply rooted in hospitality. In 1925, the Alamo Hotel opened its doors on the corner of Sixth and Guadalupe. In the lobby of this 80-room hotel was the Alamo Lounge, known for hosting the likes of Lyle Lovett and Townes Van Zandt, and can even be seen in Willie Nelson and Merle Haggard’s video for “Pancho and Lefty.” However, the Alamo Hotel eventually reached the end of its era.

Now, almost 100 years since the Alamo Hotel opened to the public, Sixth and Guadalupe is honored to share its footprint. And while the building may not be a true hotel, it will surely bring hospitality to all who walk through its doors.
