The location was excellent - just a couple blocks off the Riverwalk. We took several walks around the loop during the weekend. The service and staff were great & helped with anything we needed. As a bonus, it was a good value for what / where / when we needed.

Let me start by saying my wife is a Diamond HHonors member and I'm a Gold about to be Diamond HHonors member. We stay in Hilton properties all over the country and Europe. We are loyal...until now. We just checked in and encountered fair service at the desk - several things weren't accurate as confirmed by phone, but no problem....

From the moment I checked in, to dinner and a drink, the hotel is a cut above. The city is beautiful, and that I could literally walk out the door into the Alamo courtyard and a short stroll to the Riverwalk was a happy coincidence. The front desk folks were happy and helpful, and the restaurant and bartenders staff were...

The Emily Morgan is a cool historic hotel. Expect the unexpected here. The rooms are unique because of the interesting V layout of the building. One side has a great view of the Alamo across the street. You pay a little more, but it is very cool. We booked two adjoining rooms for my wife and I along with our...

Warm welcomes are great, but it's whats under the surface that counts. The valet and bellman were incredible and probably gave us the best service the hotel has to offer. My girlfriend and I were greeted with warm cookies, a high room, and a remark that breakfast was free and served until 11am daily, my girlfriend was right beside me...

Well located. Spacious rooms. Good service. Food provided was as part of a meeting so not clear what the restaurant is like but staff was very accommodating to a special request for fruit and yogurt at breakfast. Wonderful cookies at check-in!

While The Emily Morgan is not what I would call "fancy", it is in a great location for everything in downtown San Antonio. Just beside The Alamo, and across the street from the entrance to the RiverWalk, it was a wonderful location to see San Antonio. I enjoy being in an easy location, but more importantly to me is how...

Well staff is very nice and this is close to everything downtown. Right across from the Alamo. Bigger bed would be good and we weren't on a floor for ghosts, but that's ok. We didn't ask for a ghost floor but the hotel is renovated nicely. They made some excellent recommendations for places to see and places to eat.

This hotel is called 'the Emily Morgan' by locals - including cab drivers. The facilities were clean though not particularly modern and the staff were helpful and friendly, though the wake-up call requests got lost. The food at the hotel restaurant was good but a bit overpriced. The location was central to places I wanted and needed to go. Shopping...

We've stayed here three times before, but it had been a while. We usually get a standard king room because the features of the room and bathroom are so ample that nothing more is needed. However, for this special-occasion birthday trip, we upgraded to a junior suite because of the oversized whirlpool tub. As our stay coincided with a bitter...
