Best experiences at hotel ever! Very friendly and helpful staff. The pool and spa were amazing. The bellhop was very helpful and a polite young man. We will definitely be coming to this hotel in the near future. 5 Star rating!

Great staff! King suite was very beautiful with great bathroom with a big tub! The hotel still had some old charm in it and that was very nice. Its a perfect place yo relax and the location is awesome. I cannot wait to book the king suite again! If you are looking for a hotel with a huge swimming pool this is not the one.

Whether you're heading to San Antonio for business or pleasure, The Emily Morgan is a wonderful choice for your lodging needs. Across the street from the Alamo and Riverwalk, and two blocks from the convention center, you're right in the heart of everything that is San Antonio. Upgrade to the suite...it's well worth it!

As part of a large youth conference, the staff at the Emily Morgan hotel exceeded our expectations during our stay. From warm cookies for hungry teens to a convenient, low cost "grab and go" station in the morning before our event, and again at night as we returned, the staff was thoughtful and welcoming.

The Emily Morgan was a last minute reservation from the smartphone on a San Antonio one night visit.

This is an historic property, 14 (+/-) stories high with a beautiful facade. Immediately adjacent to the Alamo, it was built before height limitations pushed the newer, glitzier modern hotels and towers to build further out where they would not cast a shadow or otherwise affect the Alamo's visuals (which they do, anyway, despite being several blocks away). Somehow the Emily Morgan belongs, an elegant triangular Flatiron-style structure that casts its own shadow harmlessly northward, away from the Alamo.

Decor in lobby, rooms, and hallways is attractive, a vaguely modernist theme done in dark earth tones that makes for a restful experience after a day of driving through bright Texas sun. Service at the desk and bar was friendly and attentive.

The hotel offers valet parking for $28. Another option is to pay the $10/day parking in the local lots dotting the immediate Alamo neighborhood. If you choose this, be sure to be out at the 07:00 expiration time to re-up or move the car. The lot agents are out there waiting for you to forget. There's a six or eight car strip of free onstreet parking on the same block as the hotel, and it appears to be the only non-metered street parking for blocks. These spots are almost always taken. (Almost--we did get one at 7 am).

The small pool has two crane-like chairs for wheelchair-bound customers who want to take a dip in the waters. The chairs were also popular with visiting church youth. On our visit, the pool closed at dusk because of a burned out light. That was the only problem we encountered, but a major disappointment to the youngest member of our party. (Fortunately, she got to swim the next morning.)

The hotel has two elevators that can be busy at times. There's an old Cutler mail chute that's well-preserved (but alas, judging from unlocked box in the basement, no longer in service). Older travelers can while away the elevator wait by trying to remember the last time they saw a real piece of mail shoot past behind the glass. Younger travelers can stare at the chute and consider themselves lucky that the Emily Morgan hotel does charge an obscene extra per-device wi-fi fee that's unfortunately typical of downtown five star hotels.

The upper floors offer rooms with vistas across the Alamo or toward the west over the heart of San Antonio. The west-facing upper floor rooms can bear witness to some spectacular sunsets. Other rooms on the pool side face east and north (and the other half of the tower).
