ACBF Host Hotel & Hospitality

Alamo City Bear Fest is excited to return to the Downtown/Market Square Fairfield Inn & Suites for ACBF 4. The hotel is conveniently located in Downtown San Antonio near many of the city's historic sites, tourist attractions, and small (but bustling) Gay Strip. The location offers easy access to shopping at the ethnic Market Square or the more traditional Rivercenter Mall, eateries such as the famous Mi Tierra Cafe and Bakery, and attractions like the Alamo and the Tower of the Americas. In addition to the proximity benefits the hotel also offers great amenities such as free parking, free wifi, free breakfast, and an indoor pool. And their spacious Meeting Place is the perfect spot for us to host our Hospitality Suite for the weekend.
