We live in San Antonio and stay several times per year at the Emma. It is located near the Pearl and Riverwalk. The hotel is unique and very charming. The staff is very friendly and welcoming. Worth the trip!

We stayed here for our anniversary and loved it. The hotel has an excellent and unique look and feel. It is not your typical hotel. The room was nice and clean. I loved the high ceilings, painted concrete floor, and brick wall. The bathroom was...More

Response from Greg Y | Reviewed this property |
I loved the walk from Hotel Emma to the Alamo, along the Riverwalk. It is less crowded, but, safe, with great landscaping, and other nice landmarks. Mi Tierra is a little longer, but, if you have the time, I highly recommend!
