Book Your Wedding with Sheraton Gunter Hotel


A BALLROOM IN SAN ANTONIO, TX

About Us

Located in downtown San Antonio, Texas, just steps away from the beautiful and famous Paseo del Rio river walk, the Sheraton Gunter Hotel blends the ageless beauty of early 20th-century decor with modern luxuries and amenities.

Founded in 1909, the historic hotel offers a place where couples can create lifetime memories with friends and family on their wedding day. From banquet rooms to ballrooms, Sheraton Gunter Hotel has several different places you can choose from to celebrate your ceremony and reception. You can use any of these spaces for your ceremony or reception. However, if you use the same room for both, the staff needs an hour to turn the ceremony space around for the reception.

Robert Johnson Rooms. The Robert Johnson area on the first floor of the hotel has two rooms you can utilize for your ceremony and reception. Together, both rooms can fit up to 200 people. This room is a cozy, welcoming space with plush red carpet and a stage in the back of the room. It has a lot of lighting and plenty of space for a dance floor.

Crystal Ballroom and Terrace. This open, airy room can accommodate up to 240 people. It has plenty of warm lighting with its romantic chandeliers and sconces. High ceilings and the neutral color on the walls expand the space, and there is also plenty of room for a dance floor. If you add on the terrace and terrace rooms to the Crystal Ballroom, you can fit up 600 guests. You also get access to the lovely terrace that features a piano and plenty of windows that look out onto the downtown area of San Antonio.

Bluebonnet and Magnolia Rooms. The Bluebonnet and Magnolia rooms are two more large spaces able to accommodate 200 people altogether. These spaces have carpet and French doors that lead out into a hallway that looks out onto the downtown area. A large chandelier is the main feature of this room as it hangs over the dance floor. Recessed lighting also provides a romantic ambiance to the room.

I saw great reviews about the Gunter and was I interested in setting up an appointment to view the ballroom and ask questions. I sent an email on 5/4 to Tina. When I didn't get a response I called the following day (5/5). Still no response. Next day (5/6) I left a voice mail... Read More for the sales manager as well, since we were hoping to view it that weekend. I received no call back. I didn't get an email response back until 5/9. All the other venues I had been interested in called or emailed me within 48 hours. I was a little concerned with their slow timing, however I convinced my self it was okay. We finally made an appointment for 5/13 at 4:30. We arrived a little early to the Gunter and asked the front desk for Tina. The boy at the front desk pointed us to some chairs and asked us to wait for her. 10 minutes past from our appointment time we see Tina with some other guests. She's obviously running late. So we waited as we figure she'd be wrapping things up. 10 more minutes later and Tina leaves the couple and walks to the sales manager who points in our direction. Instead of walking over and apologizing for the wait she ignores us completely. Finally 30 minutes after our appointment time the sales manager comes over and says she can show us the ballroom while we wait for Tina. We view the ballroom and have questions which she can't answer (not her fault she's not the wedding specialist) so she messages Tina to find out how much longer she'll be. No surprise, Tina doesn't answer her. So we go back down to the lobby and wait, it's almost an hour past our appointment time. Still she's with the previous couple and makes no acknowledgement to us. It takes five seconds to pull away and just let us know she'll be with us or she's sorry for the wait. Instead she chose to ignore us and completely miss our appointment. That's bad customer service. I wouldn't risk the potential of having the same treatment as we are planning the wedding or on our big day. Needless to say we are no longer interested in the Gunter. Update: Tina reached out after the situation to reschedule and apologize. While we did not reschedule we appreciated the gesture.

My favorite service was clean up--something you don't realize how nice it is until the night is over and no one feels like cleaning and packing everything up. Also, when the reception was over, many of my guests commented on how nice it was to simply take an elevator to their room and go to bed.
