The Rialto Hotel at 1219 Matamoros — once the Sames-Moore Building — is located in the heart of historic downtown Laredo. Built in 1925, the structure remains a landmark surrounded by turn of the century storefronts and buildings that once formed the City’s commercial district.
The Rialto is in walking distance of the Federal courthouse, the Webb County Justice Center, and City Hall. It is in close proximity to bus terminals that provide northbound bus service and terminals with bus service to Mexico.
The new Outlet Mall and Nuevo Laredo are but a short walk or taxi ride away. Scenic Jarvis Plaza across Salinas Street is a hub for taxi service. The Rialto’s 49 rooms and suites are an ideal destination for rest and comfort for those who wish to stay downtown. The Rialto staff does all possible to make guests feel at home and to ensure a comfortable stay at the right price. Laredo Downtown Pharmacy Is conveniently located on the ground floor of the hotel, as is La Fonda de la Abuela Mexican food restaurant.
The rich historic ambience of the Rialto Hotel is reflected in the two surrounding historic districts — the St. Peter’s Historic District, which showcases homes built when the railroad came to Laredo in the 1890s; and the older San Agustín Historic District, which has an inventory of buildings that reflect the founding of Laredo. The archival treasures of the history of Laredo can be found at the Webb County Heritage Foundation, a mere six-block walk from the Rialto Hotel.
