The Emily Morgan Hotel - a DoubleTree by Hilton
Ranked #25 of 358 Hotels in San Antonio
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 12 August 2013

We arrived early for our short stay in San Antonio, and although the we couldn't check in early, the front desk was very accommodating. They took our bags and stored them, took my number, and recommended places for us to go while we waited. Upon our room becoming available....there was my call...and they brought our bags up. Large corner room with plenty of amenities. 12th floor and a great view of a beautiful city. It is directly across the street from the Alamo and a short walk to Riverwalk and shopping. Great breakfast and very friendly staff. Beautiful building, comfy lobby and room, and location make this a definite place to go again.

I wish all hotels I stayed out were this nice! This will become the hotel I stay at whenever I am in San Antonio. The staff are warm and friendly. The valet parking is quick and efficient. The room was lovely and large. Pricing is average for San Antonio near the Riverwalk. The atmosphere was quiet and elegant.

Great hotel, awesome staff, beautiful service from the breakfast staff. The food was great! Make sure housekeeping does their job, as our room needed to be tidied up a bit more after it was 'done'. Other than that, highly recommend this hotel!

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.
