SAN ANTONIO, Texas - Hilton Palacio del Rio is supporting San Antonio's bid to attract the 2016 US Olympic Swim trials.

Beginning Wednesday, February 20th, Hilton Palacio del Rio will feature the San Antonio Sports campaign slogan "I'm In" using the hotel balcony lights. Engineers will remove hundreds of balcony lights to black out the entire east side of the building. Just 65 balconies will be replaced with the respective red and blue lights featuring the campaign logo.

"We are proud to support San Antonio Sports Foundation and Mayor Castro in the effort to attract the 2016 Olympic Swim trials. The event would bring national attention to our city and levate our sports programs," said Robert Thrailkill, general manager, Hilton Palacio del Rio.
