Hotel Emma feels like home, but only if you were insanely wealthy with great taste. Each detail feels personal, from the industrial, repurposed chandeliers to the luxurious Persian rugs, leather couches and throw blankets. The building was originally a brewery in 1894 and was once the tallest building in San Antonio
– its lofty ceilings and exposed infrastructure invited cathedral comparisons from renovation crews. The suites combine Southwestern, vintage and opulent styles, and some even have their own fireplace, wet bar and terrace.
