Relaxing Labor Day weekend

Hotel location is great. Walking distance to everything. There is no parking garage so being in downtown you have to pay for your own parking. Only complaint was tv reception was bad at times. I would stay here again.

Surprise trip for daughter

Our 7 year old learned about the Alamo in school this year. No better way to follow up the lesson than with a trip to THE Alamo. Of course, trips to Sea World and the River Walk were included. The Emily Morgan is fabulous! Excellent location. Valet your car and then walk the rest of the time. Only about 20 minutes to Sea World from hotel. Very friendly staff. Clean, comfortable, quiet room. Will stay again!

Intensive certification classes

What a beautiful hotel! After 9 hour sessions every day, I got a full, restful sleep in a very comfortable bed with lots of pillows under a 12 ft ceiling. Being on the 12th floor kept things very quiet. Convenient to riverwalk. Very little to complain about - parking and high priced food. This is my new fave San Antonio hotel!. Move over St. Anthony!

Daddy Daughter Vacation

I loved the location, very nice hotel, more upgrading was taking place while staying with absolutely no hinderence to our stay. It was actually good to see they care about even making it better!! We were close to the Alamo, the river walk, city walks, and river center mall. Restaurants everywhere. The only complaint I have is pretty picky, and that is that the base of our tub could have been caulked a little better for looks, and the bathroom fan was inoperative, Should of let them know, I'm sure they would have repaired it, but it really wasn't a bother , as for the rest room #509 it was wonderful !! Thanks Emily Morgan Crew!!!

Emily Morgan Hotel

The Hotel is quite a spectacle to behold! The suite was beautiful and the view was incredible. Overlooking the Alamo was amazing. However the hotel is under renovation and I experienced plumbing problems to include water temperature and pressure issues, and the jacuzzi tub did not work. Also, I was awakened multiple times every night by construction noise inside the hotel on the floor above me. The staff was friendly and helpful when I had questions regarding directions and places to see. I would love to stay at the Emily Morgan again after the renovations are complete. I think then I could recommend it to a friend.

Sightseeing tip: Short walk from hotel

History is rich in and around the Emily Morgan Hotel and much of it is within walking distance. Bring comfortable shoes and a healthy appetite because the dining along the Riverwalk and especially the small local restaurants is fantastic! The weather in late November was perfect. 50's over night 70 during the day!

Wonderful Location

The staff was extremely friendly and helpful. The location could not be better. We were on the 9th floor overlooking the Alamo. Within walking distance to most things, or we took the trolley taxi to others. The hotel was very comfortable with a very unique boutique feel. Loved the design. I was there for business and for pleasure. It was great for both.
