Property centrally located to most visitor attractions. The property has a rich history that is shared with visitors. The riverwalk is very close to the hotel. The hotel is located in the heart of downtown.

Bed extremely comfortable, clean hotel, nice pool, very convenient location. right across from the Alamo and the Hipolito Garcia Federal Building. A nice place to stay. They give you a delicious cookie when you check in. They even have a library.

Nice job making this historic hotel up to date. The restaurant food was excellent - recommend the burger with the jalapeno bun, you will love it. The room seemed a little tired and be specific if you want to see the Alamo from your room. I saw the parking lot on the north side. Otherwise a nice experience - I...

Attended a convention in SA, found this right next to the Alamo. Hotel was nice, room was nice and clean. A few concerns I had 1) don't stay near the pool, at night patrons are loud and shouting seemed the norm (even at 11:00 pm). 2) Lunch was good at the bar, but took 30 minutes for a salad and...

If you ever want to watch Fiesta San Antonio from your hotel room then you need to stay at the Emily Morgan. This is the best hotel in San Antonio downtown area. Pay the few extra bucks for the garden tub. The room is bigger and the bathtub is over the front of the hotel.

I visited San Antonio for a conference and chose the hotel for the location and price. I was also drawn to the history of the hotel. The staff was kind and earnest. However, the stay was just okay. My husband and I checked in and decided to have dinner in the hotel restaurant. The food was not good at all....

We decided to have a little stay-cation over the Fiesta weekend and although downtown was super busy, you got a relaxed and chill vibe at the Emily Morgan. The front desk staff was very hospitable, especially Rhonda, the Front Office Manager. She took care of every need from the moment we stepped in and we owe her our extreme thanks...

I don't understand all the great reviews for this mediocre hotel. Sure it is right across from the Alamo but it is a few blocks to Riverwalk restaurants. Rooms are very small and in terrible need of renovations. Checked in online for a high floor room, but ended up on 4th floor when I arrived. Front desk staff was unhelpful.
