The Emily Morgan Hotel - a DoubleTree by Hilton
Ranked #25 of 358 Hotels in San Antonio
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed June 27, 2013

Great location and friendly staff. The hotel is a older hotel that has been nicely renovated. It is located directly across from the Alamo. Room service took a while but they have 24 hour in-room dining although it is not clearly posted. Family loved the hot cookie at check-in. Hotel is located about a 20 minute drive to Seaworld and a 10 minute walk to River walk area. Would stay there again.

I've stayed here 4 times & it keeps getting better! The staff is wonderful! Just a charming hotel,great bar & excellent restaurant! It's within easy walking distance of the River Walk, several attractions,shops & cafes.The trolly stop is right across from the Alamo which is mere steps from the Emily.

Right next to the Alamo, walking distance to river walk and convention center. Terrific location.
Reservation was mismanaged despite multiple calls to confirm late arrival, etc.
Restaurant - breakfast Buffett is BAD - cold food. Food from menu is hot but not well prepared - salty sauce, greasy tortillas etc.
Service mediocre at best.
Room - outlet in bathroom kept tripping the breaker and couldn't be used.
Valet only $28/night!

Our family arrived on a Thursday evening. We were immediately greeted by the friendly curbside valet service. They were quick and accommodating. We enjoyed the nuiance as we entered the lobby to live music-and were informed of the chair massages going on! The front desk staff, along with the gm helped us to get checked in and to our rooms with no delays. We were astounded by the beauty of the rooms. We stayed in a junior suite with connecting double room. The jetted tub that was HUGE and the views from the rooms were favorites of our family. We were also impressed that one of the housekeepers took the time to chat with our daughter, who was afraid after reading of the "haunted hotel". She explained it so beautifully, how the grounds were sacred due to the battle. It eased her insecurities completely. The location to the Alamo and Riverwalk were perfect. Again, I can't say enough about the promptness or friendliness of all the staff. We truly appreciated the wonderful stay at Emily Morgan. (the doubletree standard cookies upon check in are always a bonus as well)

The hotel staff was all very friendly and took very good care of myself and my family. The room was perfect with a great view of the Alamo. The location was convenient for everything we wanted to do downtown. We could not have asked for any better service!

We were looking for a nice place near the Riverwalk to stay and were pleased to find this nice hotel near the sites we were wanting to visit. I was also happy to find out that through direct booking they offered a military discount. Great staff, room and experience. Only minus I would say is that the parking fee is a little high. 30/night

Excellent location, very pleasant staff. Views from 1108 are outstanding! Very spacious room and the views directly into the Alamo below and out over the city are fabulous from every angle. Would definitely recommend this hotel and stay here again.
