Just pointing it out, because from the outside it’s not always obvious all of the many code constraints that force a particular design.
This is very true (and I'm NOT defending the boring beige design). La Mansion and the other hotels are in the "bend" area of the Riverwalk that can be closed off from the San Antonio River itself during a flood event.
