Hotel Emma at San Antonio's Historic Pearl District

A historical hotel, authentic and welcoming, 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. When you stay at the Pearl Brewery Hotel Emma, you’ll experience San Antonio as if you are staying at the well-appointed home of extremely interesting friends, your visit peppered with warm social experiences, genuine cultural flavor, insider knowledge, and delightful surprises unique to the hotel, the neighborhood, and the city.

“Of course, great hotels have always been social ideas”

— Joan Didion

Food is joy, so at Hotel Emma we celebrate San Antonio’s lively foodways at Supper, our seasonally driven American bistro, at Larder, the hotel’s gourmet market and deli, and at Sternewirth, our city bar and clubroom. And keep an eye out for intriguing pop-up tastings and demonstrations throughout the hotel.
