Irving, Texas1 contribution
Amazing luxury hotel on the old Pearl Brewery property. Historic but so nice and comfortable with an excellent restaurant, fantastic staff, and top notch amenities. Can walk down to the regular River Walk (on the river level) or up to Brakenridge park. Lot of nice shops and other restaurants surround the property.

Hotel's Favorite
A bit pricey but worth it. The history and fact that they kept so much of the original building in the lobby and rooms is fantastic. Everything is first class from entry to exit. The location offers so much to do you really don't have to leave the area. Supper is delicious, the Larder has great coffee, pastries and staples. There are many restaurants and shops within walking distance and the farmers market on the weekends is the best in Texas! Try Hiatus Spa, it's like no other! Walk the river and see wonderful wildlife and native plants. A great getaway all around.

Amazing stay. Would go again tomorrow. It’s a little pricey, but you’re in the best location and the hotel itself is a destination, so worth it. Rooms are gorgeous, every little thing has been considered, though they’re a little on the smaller side. Beds are comfy. Very much enjoyed our stay.

Beautiful hotel in the heart of the Pearl. Service is spectacular, everyone is so friendly and helpful. Rooms are gorgeous. We found the bed to be very comfortable. The in-room food was great and pretty quick too.

Awesome! Service was exceptional and staff was so attentive and personable! We were offered chauffeur service around the Riverwalk to visit the beautiful new bars and restaurants open in the area. So much fun with my beautiful daughters. A vacation we will always remember thanks to Hotel Emma!
