Hotel Emma

136 E. Grayson  *  San Aantonio,  TX 78215  *  (210) 448-8300

The hotel is named in honor of Emma Koehler, a towering figure in Pearl history. Emma ran the brewery after her husband and Pearl president Otto Koehler died in 1914. She was an ingenious CEO who kept the brewery going during Prohibition by converting operations to dry cleaning and auto repair, and making near beer, ice cream and soda. While other breweries were shutting down, Emma kept her entire workforce employed. She turned over control of the company to a nephew in 1933, but was a formidable presence at the brewery until her death in 1947.

The hotel building was originally Pearl’s Brewhouse, built in 1894 and a San Antonio landmark ever since. The building was designed by Chicago architect August Maritzen in the Second Empire style. Maritzen specialized in breweries, designing more than eighty in the US, Canada and South Africa.

If it’s true that “god is in the details,” then Hotel Emma is divine. You’ll savor Hotel Emma’s little extras… locally-sourced civilities that imbue your stay with comfort, cordiality and delicious surprise.
