What a lovely hotel! The staff were friendly and helpful and the hotel was beautiful! The location is perfect for exploring downtown, the Riverwalk and The Alamo. We had a lovely view of the Alamo from the 9th floor and a beautiful view including the Tower Life Building. I would love to stay there again.

This hotel has all the amenities a person needs. The rooms were very nice as was the staff. It's better to pay for the hotel parking if you drive in yourself though. It is a better deal than what you will find around. Food was good in restaurant. Fitness center was great too.

This is a great hotel with lots of charater. Its in a great locations; right next to the Alamo and very close to the River Walk. Unlike most chain hotel, this is an old refurbished building and the rennovation was nicely done. Highly recommended!

The Emily Morgan Hotel is AWESOME. The hotel staff and rooms were awesome.

WARNING: People staying at this hotel with cars, you must use their Valet Parking Service. which is $28 a day. We recently had a large miltiary reunion. 3 of our members had several items stolen out of their cars by the Valets. Hotel claims the Valet Service is not part of the hotel. I disagree. The Valets service the hotel, so the Hotel should have reimbursed the members for the items stolen. After an awesome reunion, find out your items had been stolen, left a bad image for the hotel. I can't recommend this hotel due to the Valets can't be trusted with your car.

Room service poor quality and hotel allows load noise at night from other rooms without concern for other guests. Hotel good location close to Riverwalk and Alamo. Hotel check-in good and room clean. I would not recommend this hotel.

Everything was fabulous! Rooms very clean and unique! Took advantage of the old features in the building and made it comfortable. Beds were very comfy along with the pillows and linens. Location was very convenient to everything that we did - could walk to anything we needed or wanted to do! Everything was great!
