Monica, us1 night trip
Exceptional 10.0
It exceeded our expectations. To the moment we walked into the hotel we felt extremely welcomed. We weren't able to to check in on time because they were a little behind on house keeping, but they made sure that they made it up to us. When going to check in the front desk helper asked us what our favorite cocktail or bottle of wine was. He then proceeded to bring us that bottle of wine on the house due to the us being delayed to check into our room. The staff was incredibly nice and wanted to make sure that our stay was perfect! My wife and I are going to be making Hotel Emma an annually trip! Best Hotel we have ever stayed out!!

Good 6.0
Not worth the price
It’s just okay. Service at the bar was horrible.

Fair 4.0
Not going back and not worth the price.
This hotel bills itself, hopds itself out and charges as this is an eleite hotel. I travel a lot and this hotel is not elite, it is a upper end hotel with flaws. In my room i could hear all activity in hall and sometimes in neighboring rooms. Outdoor noise is problematic until about midnight. If you are there on vacation you will hear the maid service start early so do not count on sleeping in. The hotel bar is small, over crowded and impossible to sit down after a long day. If you want to over pay for a room quality of a nice hilton, deal with over crowding in bars and restraunts then this is for you. I will not be back.

Fantastic Venue
One of our favorite hotels. Great service, unique "industrial" decor that is interesting and faithful to the Pearl Brewery roots. Great location at The Pearl with easy access to great variety of dining and shopping. Of course right on the Riverwalk.. at the quiet end. We just love coming here for a few days of R&R.

One of My Favorite Hotels
I stay all over the world and this is by far one of my favorite hotels. It is hard to decide what is best about it - the wonderful staff, the great location, the marvelous rooms and bar - in my view it is everything combined. I am always tempted not to review Emma so the word doesn't get out and I can no longer get a reservation!
