Interesting building and history

Overpriced. Housekeeping must of been 1/2 there when they serviced the room. Valet parking was way overpriced also.

Trip from TN

The only issue we had was that my husband had a cup of coffee the first morning using the condiments. The used cup was not taken for cleaning, no new cup was left nor new refill of condiments. 2nd morning, he used the other coffee cup, and again no clean cups were left for the remaining trip. We expected clean coffee cups and more condiments. Water kept leaking in bath tub, kept the water running.

Sightseeing tip: Short walk from hotel

A must to see, has it all. With our hotel close by, we should not have gotten a rental car. We could have walked all around. Great informative captain on the river cruise.

Okay, but not 4 Diamond quality

We were a bit disappointed with our stay at the Emily Morgan. As a 4-Diamond hotel, we were expecting all the most modern ammenities and superb service. Our room was just standard, with a very old, outdated and dirty bathroom. There was hair on the floor and the toilet was not clean. The bed was comfortable, and the staff were pleasant, but nothing about the hotel stood out. It felt more like a 3-star hotel to us. I would only stay again if there were incredibly discounted rooms.

Decent enough for the money

When I first checked in and got my room, it smelled horribly of smoke. I immediately returned to the front desk and the girl at the desk gave me a new room which was not smelly. They call themselves a "boutique" hotel, but the rooms are pretty banged up, and could use a good upgrade (paint, bedding, TV). I was also right next to an exit door, and heard people coming in and out of the door all night. VERY loud in the hallways. ANd to top it off, they cleaned the rooms across from me at 9pm. I could hear the walkie talkie from the cleaning person going off constantly while cleaning. If you're a heavy sleeper, it's a great deal...and I would totally recommend it. Just don't expect boutique style you would get in a city like Boston, NYC, etc.

Alamo- Emily Morgan Hotel

What a super location- across the street from the Alamo and a block from the river walk, dining, bars & entertainment. The beds were dreamy and the rooms were an adequate size. Complimentary welcome bottled water and tea making facilities were a nice touch. The bath-toilettries were a good quality, but the bathroom, itself, needed some refurbishment. The staff was preoccupied with talking on the phone and each other. The same thing happened the next day with the valet service. Check-in at late evening, with no other guests in line, still took almost 30 minutes. The concierge was unavailable the next morning, so we went to the Concierge at the Hyatt on the River walk who gave us a great suggestion for breakfast. We left HER a tip.

Dining tip: Short walk from hotel

The River walk has a mutitude of dining and drinking options, as well as sightseeing attractions. Go to the Alamo early to avoid long lines with the tourists and tour buses.

Excellent

No request went unanswered and the answer was always helpful. Te riverfront was magical. I could walk to everything I wanted to see. The hotel is across the street from the Alamo and there are informative tours if you are into that sort of thing.

The GM Steakhouse is a great value, not 5 star but good food at a great price but they do not accept charge cards. There is an ATM inside.
