My wife and I recently stayed at the Emily Morgan Hotel. My wife was there for a conference and I was there to just explore San Antonio. We had been to San Antonio roughly 20 years prior to this trip, and had stayed across the street from the Henry B. Gonzalez Convention Center. On this trip, we found we could...

I loved reading about the history of the hotel and associated ghost stories. I was actually hoping for something exciting to happen, but no such luck. The location is great! I could see the Alamo grounds right under my window. I was there for a conference, and we took a break to watch the stock and rodeo parade that went...

We stayed here during a packed pre-Valentine's day weekend (also All State Band). The service was consistently excellent. Our room was updated with a 9th floor view of the Alamo. The building itself is wonderfully restored and updated. If you are looking for a quality, historic hotel up to modern standards, this is your place. We will be back next...

My husband and I enjoyed our stay to celebrate his birthday. The jacuzzi tub was great. Our view of the Alamo was super ! The cookies given to us when checking in were delicious. There is a small pool and no outdoor hot tub. The in-room tub made up for that. The hotel offers a driver and car. David Lopez...

The Hotel's appearance was really nice and historic. Our reservations were messed up two times after confirming very late arrival only to be told while driving there they had us arriving two days before when the reservation had only been made the day before but we were told they would have a room for us upon our late arrival. When...

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...
