The Emily Morgan Hotel - a DoubleTree by Hilton
Ranked #26 of 358 Hotels in San Antonio
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 9 August 2013

What a grand Hotel this is! This was by FAR the Best trip/Hotel we have ever stayed at. From the second you arrive to the last second you leave, there is always someone asking if you need anything! Talk about being spoiled with the great service! When we got home, we were already looking for dates to book for our next trip to the Emily Morgan & San Antonio Area!

We spent two nights in one of the junior suites and it was HUGE! The room was completely beautiful and the bathroom was amazing! I sat in the jacuzzi bath and looked over the city at night. After spending a few nights during our trip at some questionable motels, this place was true luxury.

Views from our room overlooked the Alamo so the location was perfect. Staff were friendly and helpful and i would love to stay here again.

Room Tip: Spend the extra money and get yourself a suite! You won't regret it!

Hotel is old but renovated. Very clean and quite. Parking will add $30 plus each day plus tips. Ice machine not on every floor and the rooms don't have fridges. You must call and ask if they have any left and if they do they will bring it up to you. Staff was very good.

We stayed 2 nights in one of the larger rooms with the whirlpool tub. The room was very spacious and clean, with up to date furnishings. We looked out over the Alamo across the street. One nice detail-- the very large tub has a window that can be opened, and you can look out at the skyline. Obviously there are also privacy shades.

I stay at Hilton properties a lot and the Emily Morgan meets the standard, easily. What impressed me most was the friendly, professional service, from everyone-- the bellman, front desk staff, bartender, restaurant servers. The restaurant was definitely several steps up from a typical hotel restaurant. As mentioned by a prior reviewer, there's a big focus on quality, local/regional foods. The night we arrived, it was 102 degrees and we were dead tired, so we bailed on any exploring and ate at the hotel. It turned out not to be a compromise at all.

Highly recommended.

Room Tip: If it's a couples trip, spring for the larger room with the whirlpool tub.

We stayed there the weekend of July 26,2013.... Valet on a mainstreet is quite odd... When booking be aware that there is a 75.00 deposit in case of any damages, that upset me because I was not notified at time of reservation... Got the cookies at check in and were yummy! Rooms are ok; bathroom /shower not really "private", sliding door is like a see thru glass window.. No free wi-fi unless u get the higher priced rooms... Rooms can use a mini fridge; Valet sucked at check out; we waited over 30 minutes after the 4th time asking where our truck was we were told that we needed to go back to the front desk; total mess up on their part! I will not stay here again; i prefer the westin next time!!

Dear Cindy Ortiz,

I thank you for staying with us and for taking the time to review your experience on TripAdvisor. I am glad that you enjoyed our famous Doubletree chocolate chip/walnut cookies and I do apologize for the issues you encountered while staying with us. Comments, such as yours, truly assist us in improving our product and services and I assure you that I will follow up with the third party valet service to ensure this type of situation does not occur again. I do wish you would reconsider our hotel again the next time you are in the San Antonio area.

It's right next to the Alamo and near the Riverwalk, but in a spot that is quiet and just off where all the activity is. It is an intimate and friendly hotel. Actually has an outdoor pool. And the restaurant offers locally grown food with regional offerings.

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
