We had an enjoyable stay at the Emily Morgan for 5 nights over Christmas break. We reserved two rooms, 1 deluxe king and 1 standard king, and they were spacious and clean for the most part. We got a great rate with the Hilton Honors program so it was a good value. It was a perfect location for us as...

They have done a great job of keeping the hotel's historic character but also making updates. Our room was great with exposed beams and stone. Good breakfast buffet. Great location just outside the Alamo wall and a 3 minute walk to the river. For being so centrally located I didn't notice any noise. Great choice in San Antonio.

Great location. View from upper floor junior suite is so fabulous! Great staff and the location is absolutely perfect; a short stroll to the Riverwalk, but not on it and right next to the Alamo. It is well worth the money to enjoy such a special venue as this hotel.

Location is fantastic, rooms are up scale, property itself is upgraded but still pays tribute to the buildings history, parking is expensive, staff is responsive and helpful, views of the Alamo and downtown are perfect. Even if you don't stay here, the building is a must see!

Hotel is in a great location but everything else falls short (cleanliness, housekeeping timeliness, valet timeliness). Granted this was between Christmas and New Years, it felt like the hotel was understaffed significantly.

What a great time in San Antonio, Texas. This is an awesome place to stay. Located next door to the Alamo and just blocks from the River Walk. Love the Emily Morgan Hotel and their staff. I have stay here many times and will continue to come back when in the area.

Our experience was enhanced when we entered our connecting rooms with a view of the grounds behind the Alamo and the downtown skyline along with the tall Christmas tree in front of the Alamo. The rooms were certainly clean and the service at the highest level. The hotel restaurant/bar offered good reasonable options for our entire family. Access to the...

Picture from room overlooking the Alamo. Need to use valet parking for safe parking. Great views of downtown San Antonio and beyond. Great view of the Tower of Americas also. Can't wait to go on house and buggy ride.
