Title says it all. I ended up on the "haunted" 11th floor (which is also an HHonors floor) and had only one issue occur. It was cold outside and my AC unit wasn't cooling properly. I reported to the front desk the next morning and it was taken care of within a few hours. Staying at this hotel during the...

Hi J6430RVsimoneb, Thank you so much for sharing your experience with us! We are glad that you reported the cooling issue and we were able to promptly resolve it. Alamo Plaza is especially beautiful over the Holidays and are delighted that you were able to enjoy it. We certainly do hope that you return on a leisure visit. Thanks again!

Beautiful, quiet room overlooking The Alamo. Thought we would like to have stayed on the Riverwalk, but soon learned that we were quite happy with the quiet location overlooking the Christmas lights of the city. A very short, safe walk to the Riverwalk.

My husband and I stayed at The Emily Morgan Hotel for a variety of reasons. It's centrally located in the heart of San Antonio. The staff was fantastic and very helpful. Our view of the Alamo was amazing. Also, contrary to belief, we saw no ghosts. Maybe next time! LOL

We stayed here during a conference. While the building design wow'ed us, the room didn't. The heat was impossible to control-felt too hot all the time. The service was good though-they allowed us a late chk out the day of departure. How kind!! The pool unfortunately was outdoors and with 20 degree temp. we used our best judgment. So all...

Great location. Very nice hotel, great staff. Close to Alamo and Riverwalk. I would definitely stay there again. Great repurpose of an older building. I was traveling on business, but would come back with my family.

In addition to a beautiful hotel, the Emily Morgan helped us with shelter after our VRBO caught fire. They put my family in very nice rooms, all on the same floor, they found toothpaste and toothbrushes for us and many other necessities to make our stay comfortable. Lastly, they gave us a free breakfast. They cared about us which is...

For a weekend getaway this was perfect. The view was perfect and the Christmas lights of the city added to our experience. Check in was good. I would advice valet parking as the parking lot behind the hotel was about the same price and service was not good.

Was in San Antonio this past weekend for the Rock and Roll Marathon. Stayed at the Emily Morgan, which is smack dab in the middle of downtown San Antonio. It's literally right across the street from the Alamo. In fact our room was right across the street from it. Staff was super friendly at check in and anytime we had...

Of course went there to ghost hunt. Thought it would be fun to imagine doors opening, water running and ghosts floating. All in fun of course. Went walking the halls around 1 a.m. Went to the 7th floor and sat by the ice machine so I could see all angles. Saw nothing. Got board. Pulled out phone to play solitaire...
