These four original works are among the many ways Valencia Group’s hotels tap into the works of local artists to craft a design that invokes the spirit of each destination.

Whether it’s in a vibrant community like Austin, an innovation hub like Silicon Valley, or a growing, history-steeped city like San Antonio, painters, muralists, and street artists influence and reflect the identity of their community through public art. To give each Valencia Group property a colorful dose of that local culture, the hotels proudly display a number of custom installations and rotating artwork.
