“Great Hotel”
Reviewed March 23, 2014 via mobile

Great hotel. Walking distance to shopping and the river walk. Had an awesome view of the Alamo! David the bartender was great and very knowledgable. Not a typical doubletree hotel. Smaller and more personable. Will definitely stay here again.

We stayed at the Emily Morgan in San Antonio and spent 6 lovely days. Staff was excellent, the room was quiet and very nice. No noise in the hallways or doors slamming. Just a great place to stay. I recommend using the valet service for your vehicle. They had our car ready and the staff was always very helpful. Doors were always opened and they helped us take items to our hotel room.

Everyone from check-in to check-out was kind and helpful. Were there glitches?....Yes, but they were resolved in a friendly caring atmosphere. The pool and gym were very small. But even with the hotel full for Spring Break and St Pat's Day, I was always able to use them without any trouble. The bed was very, very comfortable. The sliding frosted glass door to the bathroom may be an issue when there is more than one person in the room (lights) but I was OK with it. Never had to wait for an elevator. Breakfast buffet was included in my room so no complaints but it did seem limited for the price. No to-order omelettes, etc, unless you ordered off the menu. The wait staff were wonderful, friendly and attentive. Internet worked fine.

If you like small historic hotels this one is for you. It is even haunted they say! Very well refurbished, clean and rooms are well designed. This has the modern amenities in a old world surrounding. Ginger at the front desk could not have been friendlier and she knows the history of the building and knowledge of the surrounding area. The hotel is well located next to the Alamo and short stroll to river walk. We were on the 8th floor and heard no street noise. Definitely will stay here next time I am in San Antonio.

Room Tip: If you are interested in a view make sure to inquire on a room with a view

Stayed at the Emily Morgan Double Tree and was greeted by a friendly staff and a great room with a view of The Alamo. Room was fantastic with really nice bathroom. AC worked like a charm too. Our room was right next to the elevator but I never heard any foot traffic outside. Made for a pleasant stay.

If I could, I would rate this hotel a 3 1/2. It was not bad at all. However, it was an odd and occasionally uncomfortable experience.

I had requested a room with a nice view when I made my reservation. Paying more than $200 a night for a room and being high in the Hilton HHonors program, I didn't think that too much to ask. Well we got a king room for sure, but on the back side of the hotel with anything but a nice view. The front desk did move us to another room with 2 queens and a great view. Still why not tell us when we checked in, this room does not have a great view would you prefer 2 queens with that great view, rather than make me lug my luggage to one room and then turn around and go back downstairs to get what I really want.

The hotel does not seem to know what it wants to be. The exterior is elegant old San Antonio which is the type of experience we wanted. The interior, however, is more Vegas than San Antonio. Contemporary furniture (including those infernal wardrobes that now serve as your client). Only sliding doors separate the bathroom (open toilet/shower combo) so little to no privacy. But the best moment yet was when we returned from a pretty lovely laid back San Antonio evening and encountered Michael Jackson singing Pretty Young Thing in this historic hotel lobby.

So, not BAD really, but not a particularly great experience either.

Room Tip: For quiet ask for a room on the back side of the hotel but don't expect any kind of view. View r...

We stayed here for the weekend to spend time with family. Loved the Hotel. It is across from the Alamo and within walking distance to anything we wanted to do on or near the river. would stay here again.
