The original Hyatt ...rooftop pool and deck.

just a reminder, the Alamo Bowl game is JAN 2 so I would book something as soon as you decide on a hotel. The Hyatt and the Rivercenter Marriott have been 'team' hotels in the past.

which ever hotel, specifiy a view of/towards Hemishere Tower

Yep, on what Octoboy said, it's TX weather & you never know. We have more warm weather but once in a while a cold front may push through & we have a few days of cold weather. LOL

Here is a website to check out weather before you come.

Here is a website for past history.

Hope the above helps you out cause it's so hard to say. I can say we've had some cold NYE & also some very warm NYE. LOL
