I enjoyed my stay very much. The hotel staff was kind and informative. I was able to relax and enjoy the stay quietly and very comfortably. The library and coffee was a very nice treat. Something I had never seen before.

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!

Hotel Emma is a jewel - complimentary cocktails, uber friendly staff - a good time had by all. The BEST mattress and pillows too. Parking easy and around the corner from LICK ice cream. Loved the library too.

We didn’t stay here for our trip but we had been told to visit the beautiful building, we did and it did not disappoint! It’s a must see if you are in the area. Pearl brewery also has many attractions surrounding it.

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!

I don't think so, but am not sure. The number to the hotel which you can call and find out for sure is 210 448 8300.
