I was on San Antonio for a conference, but wanted to avoid the big conference hotels. The Emily Morgan turned out to be the perfect choice. It is right beside the Alamo, and only a 10 minute walk from the convention center. Very quiet, elegant hotel. Room is clean, modern, and comfortable. Lobby an old style comfy one with big...

The streets around this hotel are a little tricky but w/o much traffic, easy to get in and out and lucky us, we got one of the 3 spaces on Ave E at a meter. It's free after 6pm and from 8-6 it costs 30 cents/hour, 10 hour limit. That's $3/day! Besides the Alamo there isn't much around here but...

The Emily Morgan was absolutely great! We were happy to pick a room on the 12th floor. The beautiful windows with the gargoyles outside the windows were so cool. The pool was tiny and the hot tub was cemented in. But the rooms were very spacious and beautifully done. It was great to have the Alamo right across the street....

What a wonderful experience. It was a great experience to be able to look out at the Alamo from the eleventh floor. The only thing that would have been better would have been to see the Alamo from the front. I originally selected a king room not overlooking the Alamo because there were only rooms with 2 queen beds on...

We had a room on the 12th floor right in the point of the hotel. Floor to ceiling windows - amazing views of the city on three sides. Room was clean, bed was comfortable. My husband wanted a jetted tub. It had that also - a really huge jetted tub for two. He started to fill it & the water...

The Emily Morgan was a super nice hotel, and is very clean. The Desk Attendants were really nice, as were the Servers for the Breakfast, which can be a buffet or off the menu orders. This hotel is close to the River Walk, the Alamo, and shopping. What we found out after arrival was that the Hotel is said to...

Just across the street from the Alamo, this historic hotel was beautiful with fully renovated rooms, valet parking, bar and more. Cookies at check in too! You can see the River walk and the Alamo from the rooms. There are carriage rides just outside. Would highly recommend doing the carriage ride at night.
