From the Riverwalk to the Pearl there are a ton of hidden gems to see in San Antonio including a vintage hotel with a quirky vibe.
If you are a visitor in San Antonio make sure you check out Pearl Brewery. Such a great little area that offers some unique history and some excellent food. Imagine our delight when we stepped in to the Hotel Emma and found a gorgeous Southwestern themed Jazz club. It was the perfect spot for us to relax after dinner and enjoy a nightcap while listening to some nice music. The silos inside that were converted to seating area looked cozy and the fire in the giant hearth was inviting. The BF and I cozied up on one of the massive couches and all I was missing was a fluffy little blanket.
While this is a tourist area, it was inviting with many different options. Make sure you check out the Bakery Lorraine and get some of the delicious macaroons that they offer.
Talk about a little gem of a find. We normally stay off the beat and path to avoiding paying a higher cost for lodging and found this vintage motel/hotel. Think of a 1950’s motor lodge that has been renovated with modern day amenities. The rooms were crisp and clean and the decor in the lobby was a funky mid century modern vibe. If you are looking for something a bit different this might be the ticket for you.
