The Emily Morgan Hotel - a DoubleTree by Hilton
Ranked #25 of 358 Hotels in San Antonio
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed May 14, 2014

I've stayed at the Emily Morgan many times and have never been disappointed with any aspect of this fine hotel. For the price you can't beat the location, friendly staff and comfortable atmosphere. It's a short 5 minute walk from the riverwalk and allows you to retreat from the late night reveling that goes along with staying on the riverwalk. The views of the Alamo are outstanding. The Emily Morgan is the only hotel I will stay in when in downtown San Antonio!!

The staff was very helpful and friendly. The room was nice and clean. There was not really much of a view of the Alamo. It has a nice workout room but the pool was quite small. The hot tub was not great. However, the garden tub was wonderful.

I really like this hotel!! The rooms are clean and up-to-date in furnishings. I actually stayed in the same room as my trip in April. I hesitate to say which room because I don't want to lose it on a future booking. I left behind an expensive charger to a medical device and the Housekeeping Supervisor (ANDREW) was able to quickly get with his staff, find it and hold onto it so a friend could retrieve for me. EXCELLENT service at the front desk. They are ALL so warm and friendly. The Valets are wonderful, too. Our particular valet actually remembered my car and more importantly my "NECK BRACE" LOL All around nice place to stay close to the River Walk.

The website states they have fridges for guest to check out and it seems that have very few for guests to check out. This is a problem to a nursing mother that needs to pump and store milk. Either put fridge in each room or purchase more to loan out and prioritize who receives.

Great location in downtown San Antonio. Located next to the Alamo and within walking distance to many great attractions. Hotel staff is extremely friendly and welcoming. Comfortable rooms. Great views. Would recommend signing up for upgrade if you make reservation online.

Upon arrival, we did not know that it was fiesta week in San Antonio. Check-in was fast and easy. We got 3 hot cookies upon heading up to our room. The room we had overlooked the Alamo and it was a great view. Had to call room service for linen for the sofa bed and it was taken care of within 5 minutes. All staff we spoke with were very friendly and personable. This is my 2nd time staying here and will again.

Hello Jennifer,

Thank you for sharing your comments about your 2nd visit. It is great to hear that you found our staff both friendly and personable. I will share this feedback with the team. Fiesta this week was extended an additional week. I hope you were able to enjoy the "battle of the flowers" and the "Fiesta Flambeau" parades and experience some of the local food merchants.

We look forward to your 3rd visit.

Best,
Angela

Loved staying at the Emily Morgan. If you are coming to San Antonio, why not experience all that it has to offer while you are there? It is right next to the Alamo, across the street and down some steps to the RiverWalk and in the very heart of the city of San Antone (as some of us Texans say)! The hotel is old and so very unique. This is the very best room I've ever stayed in, by far!

Thank you for a fabulous review. We love our renovated room product with great views of The Alamo and the City. However, nothing beats hearing our guest say that we have the best rooms by far! On behalf of our team, thank you for sharing and declaring that we are "The Best of San Antonio.

See you soon in the Alamo City!
