Kimpton’s New Hotel Emma to Open in San Antonio in Early 2015

Kimpton's 146-room Hotel Emma will open in San Antonio in early 2015. The boutique property will be constructed in the 119-year-old Pearl Brewery's brew house. The hotel is named for Emma Koehler, wife of brewery founder Otto Koehler. The Pearl, on the city's River Walk, also features a Culinary Institute of America campus, restaurants, retailers and the largest farmers' market in San Antonio. Meeting spaces on the campus include the Pearl Stable entertainment venue and an outdoor amphitheater adjacent to the River Walk.
