The inside of this hotel is beautiful. The service and staff were very friendly. The rooms were spacious with great views. We were able to upgrade our room upon arrival to a king room which was great. The restaurant was great as well. The food was delicious. We also had drinks in the bar and the waitress was very attentive. The breakfast as hot and very good. Enjoyed sitting in the restaurant/bar and view the Alamo. The hotel was in walking distance of everything! so no need to take the car anywhere!

Room Tip: Ask for a room with an Alamo view

From the moment we drove up to the moment we drove away our experience was extraordinary. Upon arrival we accidentally hit the curb drain and sustained a flat tire. Aaron was amazing! He graciously took over and changed our tire for us while we enjoyed two drinks and an appetizer on the house to make the tire bummer not feel so bad. David at the bar was very friendly and attentive. Our room was very clean with a great view of the Alamo. There was not one single negative thing about our visit. We will go back!

Room Tip: Alamo view is pretty sweet

I recently sent 2 nights at the Emily Morgan. We have stayed here a couple of time and have always found it comfortable and welcoming. Nothing was any different this time. Great location, pool was awesome and staff were awesome. My only complaint would be that the in room dining was not a good value for what was served. Granted we chose to order and everyone knows that it can be expensive but the quality of products just weren't worth what we spent. That is the only issue I had. Overall great experience!!
