Hotel is run down, ugly and a waste of money. Was told I was paying more for an Alamo view and all I got was a view of the Alamo roof and their AC units. Was also told that my added expense would get me a jacuzzi and all it is - really is a tub w some air vents.... More

Hotel is a gorgeous old flatiron building directly across street from the Alamo. My room on 14th floor was beautiful, bed was great. However, after arrival, I learned this hotel is extremely haunted. Not sure I do or don't believe. But it sure made for two very sleepless nights. Go if you dare!

Location was good, not far from the river side and also from the airport. I could see the Alamo from my room, day view was great with the tourists. The staff were very nice and the breakfast was decent. (You need to bring your slipper to wear in the room!) One thing I would comment on is the cleanness of... More

I've stayed here several times recently, the last time in August 2016 for several days for a conference. The location is great, if you want downtown San Antonio, though not on the Riverwalk (which can be an advantage). Hilton/Doubletree have done a great job upgrading this hotel, and I love the across-street view of the Alamo and Downtown. Also, this... More

Hotel staff was outstanding. Meeting rooms and hotel room were nicely done, no issues. The bar and restaurant were very good for price. Food quality was excellent and not over priced. Both the bar and food service was top notch. It was enjoyable experience and look forward going back.

Even though I am a Texas native, I had never had occasion to stay at the Emily Morgan. I was so pleased to find a hotel that embraces the history of Texas as well as the need for quality lodging. Other than SLOW service in the restaurant, my stay was superb.

We stayed two nights at the Emily Morgan on a couples weekend get-away and found the hotel to a great place to relax after a day on the River Walk and touring the city on foot. Check-in was efficient and the warm cookies were a nice touch. Our room was well-appointed with luxury linens and a comfy bed. The view... More

The staff at this hotel is really dedicated to making your stay pleasant. They seemed to be reading my thoughts and making it happen before I asked. My medical needs were accommodated.

The only reason I was able to afford this hotel was because I work for the Hilton brand and get discounts. I felt like I was way out of place in something fancy like this place but it was very nice.

“The staff at the head desk were very cordial and friendly, the maintenance gentleman was very pleasant (he had to make 2 trips to my room), and the maitre-d at the restaurant was supportive. But. again, the room should have been ready. Note that when I told the clerk at the head desk about the problems with the room, she asked me if I wanted a different room. I declined but I appreciated the offer. ”
