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!

My son and I had a wonderful stay at the Hotel Emma. The staff was amazing, the room was perfect, and we could not have been happier. This was our second stay, and we will be back very soon. Great place.

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!
