SUBJECT:

Third Amendment to River Walk Lease Agreement with Riverton Suites, Ltd., d/b/a Hotel Contessa


SUMMARY:

This ordinance authorizes the Third Amendment to the River Walk Lease Agreement (Agreement) between the City of San Antonio and Riverton Suites, Ltd., d/b/a Hotel Contessa (Hotel Contessa), to extend the lease term through November 30, 2025.
