Dirty linens, no soap, rude service

Bad (2.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on May 18, 2011

Went on an extended weekend and booked the Emily Morgan through Priceline. Got a great deal but then again you get what you pay for. The hotel decided to downgrade our room even though we paid for an upgrade by contacting the hotel directly after booking. Upon arriving in our room we found there to be no hand soap, no regular coffee, only decaf, no ice bucket, no iron but worse of all the sheets were dirty and when housekeeping came to change them they took our pillows only to bring them back after we had to call for them 30 minutes later. If you want an unpleasant stay then book here, if you want a pleasant hotel then go elsewhere. The staff was not much help either with the exception of one person who tried to help but could not do much. Guess one gets what they pay for.

Unique Quality: None......

We got a good price on Priceline and we loved the close location to the downtown/Riverwalk area. If we got lost we just asked people where the Alamo was and then we could find our hotel which is right next door.

Unique Quality: Parking is very expensive in downtown San Antonio.

Directions: Very close to the Alamo

Stayed here for 5 nights. The hotel was nice a clean and very close to the Alamo(13 steps!), the Riverwalk and the Convention Center. There is a bar(Oro) that's good for a night cap. There is a swimming pool and jacuzzi. Had a nice big working desk. One issue was not having free internet access.

Directions: Right across the street from the Alamo.

Gorgeous Boutique Hotel

This "grand dame" is located right downtown across the street from The Alamo. You've got easy access to the Riverwalk, and right on a Trolley line to get to King William district and Market Square. The restaurant/bar, Oro, is conveniently located in the lobby area and has delicious food and drink. There are a variety of guest rooms, so be sure to make your request at the front desk when you check in if you want a specific view.

We would definitely stay here again, great staff and a very comfortable environment.

Unique Quality: The hotel was built in the late 1920's as The Landmark Building. Used as medical offices, it became a hotel in 1983 and was reopened as The Emily Morgan in 2002. Very unique facade with great detail and lots of gargoyle's!

At the time this hotel was being built in 1926, it was the tallest building west of the Mississippi.

The Emily Morgan is a deluxe hotel located 5 miles from San Antonio International Airport and right next to the Alamo.

Unique Quality: As you can see the Emily Morgan is pretty much downtown. And just in case you didnt realise it this shows just how downdown the Alamo is also.
Got this hotel pretty cheap and was no problems. My only critisism is the pool - small and gets about 1 minutes sun each day!

Defintely NOT worth the money! I spent what averaged out to be a tad under $200 a night here this past weekend May 25th and 26th. I feel as if I have been ripped off. When one spends this amount of money on a hotel they expect certain things and certain services. From the moment we arrived until we left, we were anything but impressed. We pull up around 9pm on friday night to see 3 valet guys standing around outside yet not a one walked over and helped my wife and I with the 4 big bags we had. They literally sat there and watched us. Then we get to the front desk to check in. They ran out of cookies to give. (One of their signatures) THen we get to the room and it was decent for the exception of panels that were falling off the bath tub, toilet paper stuck in the door peep hole, and an AC system that barely worked and made all sorts of noises. I have pictures of EVERYTHING and hope i can figure out how to post them here. You had to set the tempature at below 45 degrees just for it to feel 65 degrees in there! The first night we sweated our tails off! Again...we paid almost $200 a night here!!! On sunday at check out the elevator was broke and only one was working. We called down for valet to have our car ready, and then it took us over 20 min to get down stairs due to the elevators being broke! Once we got down there they had lost our car AGAIN!~ Oh, didn't i mention? They lost our car on Saturday as well! Oh, and we paid $30 a day parking x's 3 days! 2 of which they lost our car! Upon check out we waited 33 minutes before our car arrived and only after i got upset and demanded a manager! Well, I for one will never be back, am surprised that Hilton put their name on this hotel and certainly feel as if I got ripped of there!! I wouldnt reccomend staying here for the money. The days inn not far from there would have been a higher class hotel.
