Retired Couple Opts for Alteza’s Five Star Conveniences
After living in Seattle for 40 years, Bob and Jan Harvey, were ready for a new adventure that combined a vibrant city life with a friendly small town atmosphere. As a retired engineer and an international flight attendant, the two traveled the world for work and pleasure. The Harvey’s were in search of a simple lifestyle with five star conveniences and an international flair. San Antonio captured their hearts.
Leaving Seattle behind, the Harveys knew they would have many visitors in their new home. Hosting guests and being a guest can be quite difficult, especially when everyone has different daily routines. Luckily, the couple discovered Alteza Residences above the Grand Hyatt in Downtown San Antonio. Located 25 stories above the hotel, Alteza residents enjoy all the advantages of living at a premier luxury hotel, including discounted rates for any Alteza guest. That way, the Harveys can go about their usual morning routines without worrying about waking up or disturbing their guests, and vice versa.
“Living at Alteza is like living in the center of a world-class urban destination,” said Jan. “We constantly take advantage of the entertainment options, and also enjoy the delicious room service and all of the Hyatt amenities. The staff is incredibly helpful and is always willing to call a cab, make a dinner reservation or take care of our home while we are away.”
With the hustle and bustle of everyday life, there is a growing trend among young professionals and empty nesters alike looking to simplify life and having everything at their fingertips. This is just the lifestyle the Harveys were looking for when they stumbled upon Alteza. With room service, valet parking, housekeeping and a 24-hour concierge, Alteza residents have all of the privileges and amenities of a Grand Hyatt guest, but with a private entrance and elevator lobby.
“Instead of purchasing a home with an extra bedroom only our guests would use, we decided it would be easier and much more convenient for everyone involved if our guests stayed in the Grand Hyatt, which is just an elevator ride away,” said Bob. “It’s always nice to have your own space, especially when you’re visiting friends in a new city.”
The Harveys and their guests also take advantage of Alteza’s heated pool, which sits 35 stories above the city and boasts incredible 360-degree views. Whether soaking in the rays on the platform lounge or grilling steaks poolside, the rooftop pool is a great place to take a break from the bustling life below.
