                                  older building, needs updating and renovation, not quiet, did not feel comfortable

                                  bad noise level, could hear traffic and other guests

                                  Unfortunately we did not get to stay long because my daughter got very ill and we needed to leave a day sooner but the staff was very understanding and made me pay no penalties. I have brought my family here before years ago and my daughter says it was everything she remembered it to be especially with the jukuzi tub and the near by shopping. We are very pleased with our short stay and will be going back there in the furture.

                                  We found the voice in the elevators that said "hurry up" and things of that sort was a little mean.

                                  Staff was friendly.

                                  All the conditions about pet-sitting that you only find out about once you are there, namely that you cannot leave your pet unnatended. I wonder why would you go on holidat to a hotel if you cannot leave your room anyway? Either a hotel is pet-friendly or it isn't. In Europe I have stayed in multiple pet-friendly horels, and this was the first time I encountered this kind of rule. Even if you would want to get a pet-sitter, it would have to be for all the time in which the pet owners are not there? What is the point then?

                                  The location was convenient to the Alamo and restaurants.

                                  One of the two phones was unserviceable. Coffee pouches were in the room but there was no coffeemaker. Both beds provided insufficient support and we woke up with back aches. The ice machine on our floor was broken. I tried to call the operator and got no response. I have many out of town guests and this hotel will be on the not recommended list. I'm an airline captain and have traveled the entire world for the last 35 years and have a good idea of what a first class hotel should be like. The Emily Morgan Hotel is not one of them!

                                  I felt safe. Staff was very helpful and nice, especially the vallet guys. room service has pretty good prices and it's fast. The food is good. Friendly housekeepers.

                                  The bed could have been more comfortable. Online they said there was a place to walk the dogs but there was none. The tub was dirty when I got here. The sheets aren't ironed. The vallet have keys to the rooms, didn't like that. Parking is very expensive, $28/day. Internet is not free. But I got it complimentary for being my first stay and booking 5 nights. Overall good but there's room for improvement.

                                  Very close to the river walk

                                  The pictures of the rooms I felt did not accuratley depict what we were given

                                  The staff was amazing from management to room service. This is my new San Antonio hotel. The rooms were cool retro with modern ammenities. The pool was clean and nice. But really, the staff made the difference.

                                  The location is just terrific and allows you to walk to all downtown attractions, and we enjoy staying in historic hotels rather than the low-end or high-end chains, both of which are available in downtown San Antonio. The ground level garden and pool areas are nice, as is the spacious lobby. The the price is extremely modest for a downtown hotel in a major city.

                                  The old hotel could use some up-dating; it's a little worn out. Our elevator wasn't in perfect working order (the door was very slow and erratic about closing) and the historic "Rough Riders" bar still has smoke from Teddy Roosevelt's cigars in the walls.

                                  The staff was helpful. The location was perfect and close to everything. The building was a historical building and for the most part, was well cared for by the owners. We had a great view of the Alamo.

                                  There was a consistant problem with housekeeping or lack thereof. We were not given the room we requested and the "upgraded" room had two double beds, too small for two adults and the dirtiest whirlpool bath I've ever seen in a hotel. At the end of each day we returned to our room to find the beds were unmade, no clean towels and on the final day, the T.V. was left on and one of the beds appeared as if someone had been laying on the bed watching the football game and had spilled coffee on the window sill and let it drip down the wall without cleaning it up. Each day I had to call downstairs for assistance. The staff apologized, but the problems continued. I even asked if the room was "cursed" because there were so many issues.

                                  There was a charge for wireless internet. I hate that!

                                  The pool area was far from inviting/comfortable. The staff was not knowledgable with the area or helpful when trying to locate things...I had to suggest they print a map for me since they did not know the location of a popular attraction nearby. I could not tell if the concierge just plain sucked, or was not available, I spoke with several staff memebers on different occasions. They were nice, just not helpful or proactive.

                                  It was close to the riverwalk.

                                  The staff told her the pool was broke until Monday. It was 100 degrees and come to find out the pool wasn't broken the hot tub was. We found this out from a guest in the elevator

                                  Very good bed, very close to the riverwalk and easy / quick access to the highway.

                                  seedy bathtub,no fridge, sending e-mail by Outlook not possible since smpt-server block the e-mails folder - unacceptable. This doesn't work for buisness-people. This is only paranoia since they fear that guest could send spams.

                                  It was located across the street from the Alamo and just an easy walk from Riverwalk.

                                  I was given a handicapped room, just because I booked through your website. I have no handicap. Maybe that is what you meant by "Spacious Double Room". Also, there was someone else's hair stuck to the shower wall, which remained there even after room service. Towels were not replaced completely after room service.
