June 28 in San Antonio history…
1917 – World War I
The St. Anthony Hotel holds the formal opening of their Top O’ the Town roof garden, promising “The Most Wonderful Night San Antonio Has Ever Seen” and “A Dinner That Would Have Pleased Lucullus.”
The St. Anthony Hotel, due to reopen in January after a $10 million renovation, may be renamed. In April 1981 when the hotel was purchased by Inter-Continental Hotels Corporation, the name was changed to the Hotel St. Anthony Inter-Continental. According to a company representative, the Hotel is due to be renamed the Hotel Inter-Continental San Antonio – removing St. Anthony completely.
