Staff was helpful and willing to accommodate. Paint in the hallways beginning to show some wear as well as the pool area. Location is great to see what downtown San Antonio has to offer. The room staff was able to get my teenage girls a connecting room so I did not worry about them being "off down the hall". Make... More

Overall the hotel was nice clean and friendly staff. You could not ask for better location. 2 minute walk to the river walk across the street from Alamo. Very short walk to tourist spots downtown. Be prepared for a small room, this is an older hotel. The issue was the horrible parking situation. If you get past that a wonderful... More

I checked into this hotel, and was greeted by a condescending manager who didn't want to help - just make guests feel insignificant. I checked into the amazing room, and was thrilled with the size and view. However, the housekeeping staff chose to not change the sheets on our bed, or change our towels during the stay. On a good...

I booked my room last minute for a quick getaway to catch up on sleep and relax a bit. Paid for the valet because I have very little time away from my job and didn't want to waste time finding parking or lugging my bags around downtown. I was very specific when I booked my room that I needed something... More

The Emily Morgan has been our San Antonio "go to" hotel for years. On previous stays the rooms were detailed with upscale linens, fixtures and furnishings and helpful, attentive front desk staff. The past front desk staff knew the area and could recommend the best ___ nearby. Now your lucky to get directions out of the 28.00/day parking lot. Ice,... More

Nice classical hotel, with good services. But very poor gastronomic offers. The gym is to small, but pool is ok. There are only two local newspapers for the entire hotel, which is not good. Room service is a bit slow, but the staff is friendly. Food acceptable, rather below standard for the price you have.

We needed a place for our stay to stay as well. Location is excellent. Riverwalk and Alamo and some of the best Mexican restaurants. Don't miss Rita's on the River for the best Margaritas. Several attractions within walking distance. This is the second time we have stayed at this hotel and will stay there again in the future.

It is by far one of the best hotel stays I had with my family. That sums up my experience about the place. But i have to tell you guys about how the place is nicely located next to the main attraction of San Antonio. So leave the car parked and walk across the street to see the Alamo, and... More

For those of you who like peace and quiet, this hotel is perfect for you. I had a conference at the Marriott Rivercenter and did not want to be with all the other conference attendees. It was a short walk each day to and from the hotel, always past the Alamo which is really cool.

Great historic hotel part of the Hilton family. Wonderful staff and service. Directly across from the Alamo. Easy walk to the River Walk and River Center. Unique hotel design. Very enjoyable getaway. Famous DoubleTreee cookies upon arrival.
