The Emigrant is a charming boutique hotel in Fredericksburg, TX. The design harmoniously blends with the historic structures of the area, attracting tourists to its prime location. The hotel offers five luxurious guest rooms on the second floor, accompanied by elegant en suite bathrooms. The first floor houses a large lobby with a bar and a brasserie-style café, while the basement features a speakeasy bar, boasting a distinctive atmosphere.

The eye-catching exterior showcases ornate custom-made decorative railings, clean limestone walls with cast stone lintels, and dark-stained African Mahogany doors and windows, creating a unique and refined appeal. The nostalgia extends to the interior, where African Mahogany dominates with wainscot paneling, millwork, and trim, complemented by custom-stained European solid white oak floors and pressed metal ceilings reminiscent of the past.

Contrasting with the upper floors, the basement exudes a different ambiance with custom-stained oak millwork, steel, and metal mesh accents, complemented by exposed infrastructure painted black for a spacious feel. The basement hosts a U-shaped bar, custom banquet seating, and a corner stage for live music, creating an inviting speakeasy vibe.

Guests staying in the second-floor rooms enjoy custom furniture and amenities, with doors and windows leading to the porch, welcoming ample natural light. The en suite bathrooms showcase handmade wall tiles and unique brass-legged vanities, exuding elegance and high quality.
