“The Alamo”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 27 July 2013

Hotel is not on the river walk, but don't let that put you off staying in this amazing hotel, overlooks The Alamo. Every thing about this hotel ticks all the boxes, location, history, style, staff, rooms, beds, breakfast and did I say the staff.

Stayed two nights in corner king room, room was large, clean, wifi that didn't drop out, garden tub in the bathroom. Bed was amazing. Hotel has a pool on the second floor

Breakfast was great.

Some of the most professional and friendliest staff member I have ever come across in a hotel ( shout out to Mariah, Management must be very proud to have you on staff. )

Love this hotel, would go back in a flash. Skip every other hotel in downtown and stay here

The bathroom had very little privacy considering one could see right through the sliding glass doors. The room with two queen beds was crowded with each bed being jammed against a wall. Although the bath was beautiful and well appointed, it was more suited to a couple, rather than a family, or two adults simply sharing a room but not wishing to be intimate. The a/c was difficult to set at a comfortable temperature. It never seemed to cycle off and so the only way to get the chill out of the room was to turn the a/c off, then back on again when the room got too warm. The restaurant is way over-priced for what one gets. I had assumed that the desserts were made in the restaurant, but when my daughter bit down on a piece of plastic in her peach gelato, the waiter explained that it was "simply" a piece that had broken off from the lid of the container in which it was delivered. The pool is barely large enough for the name to apply. The parking fee is outrageous and made the total daily rate quite pricey for the location.

We traveled to see the alamo. We had a nice sized suite overlooking the alamo...great view. Let me say I'm not a huge fan of old hotels as its rare to find quality renovation. This renovated hotel was so so. The view was worth it and walking to the alamo was perfect. The staff was great but the hotel was way understaffed...Kinda like The Alamo! Unloading luggage on a busy street with 2 kids sucks! Finally the bellman, doorman, concierge arrived. Yep! Those were all his job! No fresh cookies at check in for the kids. But again SUPER friendly people. Restaurant food was ok but I think better options are within walking distance. We loved the view but won't return.

Room Tip: Ask for or book Alamo view.

Dear Mr. Destin,
We appreciate your staying with us and your candid comments above. Thank you for recognizing the effortsof our staff to be friendly and accomodating. I am very sorry that you experienced issues with the valet service and cookies. We were at high volume and unfortunately missed in some areas when you were here.

Emily Morgan is a great location for seeing downtown San Antonio. Across the street from the Alamo and and a short walk to the Rivercenter and the Riverwalk. The hotel has lots of history, and my kids loved the ghost legends about it (supposedly the 2nd most haunted hotel in SA). A bit pricey, but good package deals are occasionally offered. Like most downtown hotels valet parking is a practical necessity, but at an annoying added charge. The 2nd floor outdoor pool and spa are stainless steel, a bit on the small side, but have handicapped access. Pool deck gets direct sun only in the morning until about noon. Breakfast is a hot buffet with good selection of items. Again, rather pricey unless you get it included in a package deal. We will be coming back, but probably only when there is a good deal or on Hilton HHonor points.

Great experience, competitive in pricing, clean and very professional staff. Friendly environment and helpful. Easy access tro the Alamo, shopping,dining and th Riverwalk. Beautifully decoraed, historical site with plenty of ghost stories. Due a little research on Emily Morgan prior to arrival to add an interesting touch to your stay.

Fantastic experience ! Great beds ,nice clean rooms, friendly service and the best food ! The margaritas were pretty awesome too ! I love this place ! I would recommend this place to anyone wanting to visit the Riverwalk as its close by. The Alamo is right across the street. We took a carriage ride ( they call out high prices first, ask them to lower it and they will by half )and a river boat ride. This location is also great even if you plan on going to the zoo or Market Square.

Room Tip: Wonderful place to stay ! Beds were so comfortable, rooms clean and fantastic friendly service! Pe...

Housekeeping needs to do a lot of work. Parking is extremely high and is ONLY VALET... We called front desk for our vehicle 10 minutes ahead of time and when we went down to get it they had never left to go and retrieve it. You would think for $30 a night valet would be great.
