Virgin rating

The hotel

Named for the mysterious woman who influenced the Battle of the Alamo, this 1920s structure is steeped in history. For almost 40 years, the Emily Morgan San Antonio has been delivering exceptional service to its guests, in a unique central location just steps from the Alamo Mission itself. Although the property is listed in the National Register of Historic Places, with its gothic-revival inspired tower standing proud, the amenities inside are all contemporary; comfortable beds and modern features can be found in all guest rooms, and the in-house restaurant, Oro, serves up Southwestern fare amongst sophisticated decor and dramatic views.

Great room, service and location! We enjoyed our margaritas at the bar, the fantastic valet service, our delicious warm cookies at check in and walking to the riverwalk at night. We will be back for another visit!

Great location and a lovely hotel! Upon booking I opted to ‘apply’ for an upgrade with a soaking tub and upon arrival I learned I did get it. Had a large corner room on the ninth floor with a huge soaking tub which provided a much needed respite after exploring the Riverwalk area all evening. Staff was helpful and friendly. They gave great recommendations for area restaurants and attractions. The valet staff were great as well, including Jay M. He had the car waiting for me upon my departure. No waiting time! I would definitely stay here again. Read less

It was beautiful and right across the street from the Alamo and the Riverwalk. They took good care of our F150 by Parking it right in front where they could keep an eye on it all night. We went to the Riverwalk during the evening, the Alamo in the morning, followed by breakfast at La Panaderia bakery 5 minute walk away. perfect!
