Go see the Pearl and the Emma hotel. Very unique area and architecture. The hotel is designed to resemble the inside of the old brewery. Very nicely done. Nice enough that we plan on staying at the Emma on our next trip.

This place is phenomenal! It was suggested to us by a local resident who said the tourists haven't found out about it yet. So many things to see, shop at, eat at, and drink at. Next time I'm in San Antonio, this is where I'm...More
