Vintage Austin: Alamo Hotel
The Alamo Hotel can be seen in this Vintage Austin photo from 1947. The 80-room hotel opened to the public in 1925 and sat at 6th and Guadalupe. You can catch a glimpse of the Alamo Hotel in the Clash’s music video for “Rock the Casbah” and Willie Nelson and Merle Haggard’s video for “Pancho and Lefty.” The site will soon be home to Austin’s tallest tower yet, 6 X Guadalupe.
