My husband and I recently stayed at the Emily Morgan for the first time after visiting Downtown San Antonio for over 30 years. My husband was quite fond of the warm chocolate chip cookies we received at check in. I booked the room online, and requested the corner suite. It was a nice room with a living area and a large jacuzzi tub. I especially liked the dressing table area that was separate from the rest of the bathroom. Although I called to ask about the privacy of the room with all it's windows, we noticed, as we walked outside, one CAN see into the bathroom, so keep the shades closed! The bed was comfortable, the couch/hide-a-bed was adequate for our son. We made use of the small refrigerator and bar sink. There was plenty of storage cabinets and drawers. The jacuzzi tub was also a nice touch, but we found out after going to bed it was a self-cleaning jacuzzi, and is rather loud! It kept turning on several times for about an hour after we used it.
I saw where another guest's review commented on the elevator situation, so I will, too. There were two or three school groups staying at the hotel at the same time, and we had a difficult time getting on the elevator, being that each time the door opened, it was packed with kids. Also, we found out that some of them thought it great fun to ride it up and down, pushing all the buttons. Perhaps hotel security could be tightened up a bit when these large groups are in house. We gave up and took the stairs (dirty and scary) and ended up in the kitchen!
The outside of the hotel is very interesting architecturally. The lobby is well appointed and there are displays of artifacts from old San Antonio featured throughout. Situated across from the Alamo, the street in front of the hotel was busy, but the double paned windows helped block out noise.
Overall a nice stay, and we would definitely stay again.
