Pros:Who knew you had to go to San Antonio to find one of the best hotels in Texas! It's modern luxury at its finest. Located in pearl district, hotel Emma sits center stage in a very charming environment. What was once an old brewery is now a cozy hotel with modern luxury finishes. The service matches the 5 start prices and interior. Highly recommended!
