The Emily Morgan Hotel - a DoubleTree by Hilton
Ranked #26 of 358 Hotels in San Antonio
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed March 13, 2014

This hotel is very convenient to the river walk and Alamo. There is a side entrance to the Alamo right across the street from the entrance. One thing to look out for is don't do a search on your GPS for Doubletree, use Emily Morgan. All staff members were very polite and helpful.

The hotel doesn't have much atmosphere. It is nice but I would have preferred a place that was more energetic. The Lobby is small and just doesn't have a welcome feeling. I got upgraded to a corner room with a whirlpool tub. The tub never worked and after asking twice to have someone to come look at it I decided to live without it. The rooms have been updated and the view was nice. The restaurant was disappointing. They couldn't handle the small crowd the first day and they next two days they really struggled. You would think if they new how many people were staying in the hotel they could plan for the appropriate size breakfast crowd. The front desk staff was less than helpful. I will say the day shift was worse than the evening shift.

Hotel was decent, overpriced but still nice enough. Had a few issues throughout the night with the AC showing one temp but continually fluctuating. Requested a room on one of the *haunted* floors, but alas, no spooks whatsoever. I do not use this a a negative factor in this review, obviously the hotel staff has nothing to do with the paranormal activity, but still, floor 7 was a bust.

Great location especially if you want to see the Alamo. Very friendly staff and excellent room (over looking the Alamo). Parking is a little pricey but the going rate in San Antonio. Very friendly and helpful front desk bellman staff

The Emily Morgan in downtown San Antonio is an amazing hotel. The staff is literally the most attentive, courteous and kind I've ever seen in my life. And I've been to hotels in several US states and several overseas. As a HHonors member they gave me a room on the 11th floor with amazing views of downtown. It is also a short walk from downtown/RiverWalk or you can take a $5 cab ride to hot spots like Howl at the moon or Swigs. I'll admit the room is a bit cramped, but the view more than made up for it. The restaurant is also very good. This is definitely a hotel I plan to frequent!! Thank you Emily Morgan staff for such a great experience!!

For location you can't beat it. The people are friendly and want to make sure your stay is a good one. We've stayed at the Emily Morgan the last two times we've been in San Antonio and as far as I'm concerned it will be the only place we'll stay!!!

I booked a conference for 14 Attendees from a global team (Mexico, USA,Germany). The suite we were given was on the 14th floor with a great view and breakfast and afternoon break service.
We did arrange for a group dinner on monday night but the Restaurant was out of several menu items but the food we did order was excellent. The hotel staff was wonderful and adjusted to the numerous last minute changes I had to request due to travel arrangements. On a personal note, I love this hotel. It is a great location, extra large rooms and very comfortable beds. I have stayed here several times so I can 'play tourist' in my own city ;)

Room Tip: Ask for a higher floor corner room. The view is incredible and these rooms are large
