Just showed up and they went out of their way to accomodate us! I was surprised how the staff seemed to take a personal interest in helping us get comfortable and put us at ease. The room was to die for!

Hotel's Favorite
Beautiful, relaxing property on the most peaceful stretch of the River. Visited with a toddler, enjoyed lots of local restaurants, and had a wonderful time. We had always heard great things and were not disappointed!

This hotel is one of the most beautiful hotels I have ever stayed in. I have traveled all over the U.S., Canada and Europe and this is one of the best, friendliest and cleanest hotels I have ever stayed. The surrounding area of The Pearl is just an added bonus. The Riverwalk is nice but Hotel Emma is a must when traveling to San Antonio!!

Overall this is a fabulous hotel. Very comfortable and service is outstanding. I would have enjoyed the stay so much more if the bar had been open to hotel guests. It is a beautiful room and I regret not getting to enjoy it.
