Editor’s Review of Hyatt Regency Hill Country Resort & Spa

Formerly the Rogers-Wiseman Ranch, which, at its peak, for near 3,000 acres, is now the grounds of the Hyatt Regency Hill Country, just outside the city center of San Antonio.

Originally settled as a ranch in 1887, D.G. Rogers put his son Henry in charge of 52 acres. Henry married Mary Feldtmann, aka Aunt Mary, and they had a daughter, Blanche, who was born on the ranch in 1903 and died here 79 years later. However, D.G. passed away shortly after Blanche's birth and left her the entire ranch. In 1933, Ed Wiseman arrived on the ranch, eventually marrying Blanche. The ranch was nicknamed "Papa Ed's" ranch.

The family continued to maintain the ranch until 1990, when 300 acres were sold to the Hyatt Regency Hill Country,
... more which developed its resort around the Rogers-Wiseman family legacy. Its restaurants and buildings bear the ranchers familiar names, and a ranch theme is predominant in the Hyatt's decor, furnishings, meals, and activities.

In the last 20 years, the Hyatt has become a popular destination for families visiting San Antonio and its SeaWorld, the largest of its theme parks in the country. less

We love this place and make it a point to visit each summer. Our whole family goes and we range in age from 73-5 and everyone has a blast. The lazy river winds through the property with the perfect balance of sun and shade. There ...
