Location is awesome, staff is friendly and the room was affordable. We were across the street from the Alamo and close to shopping , convention center and the Alamo Dome for UH vs UTSA game. Go Coogs!

Best hotel experience in a long time. Staff went out of their way to be helpful. Location is perfect right across from the Alamo and a couple of blocks from Riverwalk. Even the restaurant and room service food was great. The room was comfortable and quiet..

Bad first impression from the girl checking me in at this historic hotel. The waiter at Oro restaurant provided excellent service, making up for the bad first impression earlier in the day. Not sure if I would stay again, however.

We spent one night at the Emily Morgan Hotel and were quite happy with the accommodations. The room was spacious and clean, and the beds were comfortable. The staff were friendly and helpful. The hotel is an historical landmark that has been beautifully reconstructed and updated. It is located directly across the street from the Alamo and is close to all downtown venues and the Riverwalk. We used it for our visit to the Majestic Theatre (great venue), located within walking distance. If I had one criticism to make, it would be the rough and rather worn bath towels (but they were clean!). We felt we got our money's worth paying $149, which included free valet parking, breakfast, and late (2 pm) checkout. We would definitely stay there again if we can get that deal (parking is expensive in SA).

Room Tip: We had a 7th floor room away from the elevators and had no problem with noise.

We really enjoyed our stay here. Was able to check in early and our room looked over the Alamo. Pretty cool building. Walking distance to shops and river walk. Oh and it has a pool and hot tub. The bathtub in the room was huge. Definitely enjoyed relaxing in it with their Crabtree and Evelyn products.

Not right on the river walk but within easy walking distance. It is directly across the street from the Alamo. I had heard it has some issues in the past however it is now a Double Tree and part of the Hilton family. The rooms were clean, but small. They charge for parking at $28 per day. They have a really good breakfast if you are hilton honors member gold or higher.
We got this from a discount sight were you bid on your stay so we were very happy with the value. If we had paid full price maybe not so much. The walls are very thin and we were woke up on Sunday Morning by a family of kids in the swimming pool even though we were on the 7th floor it was still so lound

Room Tip: ask for a room that doesn't face the swimming pool
