Authentic and Welcoming

Warm social experiences and genuine cultural flavor. Hotel Emma welcomes you to something truly unique.


A historical hotel, Hotel Emma was once a 19th century Brewhouse. Now it’s an extraordinary 146-room riverfront hotel and the flagship for Pearl’s culinary and cultural community on the northern edge of downtown San Antonio.

Eat and Shop at Emma

As the flagship of the Pearl culinary community, Hotel Emma’s focus on food and service is at the heart of everything they do. Incredibly rich local sources for world-class culinary experiences are as close as the CIA, any of Pearl’s extraordinary restaurants, or the hotel’s own SupperLarder and Sternewirth.

And Curio, the gift shop at Hotel Emma, is a cultural jewel box offering guests and locals alike a carefully curated and edited selection of treasures. From custom-made Dos Carolinas “guayarobes,” to the hotel’s signature fragrance, to fine jewelry, Curio has an alluring, eclectic array of goods with common threads: good design, artisanal quality, and confident style.
