From the world-renowned Puresólspa salt cave to the in-house bee hive and vegetable garden at 1917 Restaurant, the Embassy Suites at Brooks isn’t your average hotel. Food blogger Shana Hamid, also known as Fitchick Foodgasm, took a trip to the luxury hotel at Brooks to get a behind-the-scenes look.

Just 10 minutes from downtown San Antonio and even closer to the missions, a designated UNESCO World Heritage Site, the 162,000 square-foot hotel features 156 suites, a restaurant and bar, full-service spa, and 13,000 square feet of conference, meeting and event space.
