Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service, amenities, property conditions & facilities
I live and work nearby and have visited their lobby bar many times but this is the first time I’ve stayed over in the hotel. I would say it’s the most expensive room I’ve ever stayed in but it was worth every penny. The hotel is so historic and unique that I will be back to see what the other rooms look like. As beautiful as the building is, the staff is actually what makes it great. Part of it I’m sure is that San Antonio is home to the friendliest people in America in my opinion. They also are well trained in hospitality. When we were there, the hotel was hosting a very formal wedding reception….I can’t think of a better venue in San Antonio than the Emma.
