The Emily Morgan Hotel, A DoubleTree by Hilton

This historic hotel features a legendary namesake and a haunting past.

Not many people have heard of Emily Morgan, but most know the song about her: "The Yellow Rose of Texas." This hotel pays tribute to the local legend, not only with its name, but also with its signature nods to Morgan's Lone Star state, including regional artwork and select guest room views of the Alamo. The Gothic Revival building was constructed in 1924 and served as a medical facility and office before being converted to a hotel. Multi-million dollar renovations and upgrades have enhanced the property with a blend of rustic-luxe furnishings, tasteful design and top-end amenities.

The hotel caters to every kind of visitor, from business travelers in town for meetings to couples taking romantic vacations to families on sightseeing jaunts. It is a perfect introduction to San Antonio's rich history, especially in the aforementioned rooms with their bird's eye look into the courtyard of the neighboring Alamo. All accommodations offer plenty of pampering touches, such as CD players and Starbucks coffee. A few also have separate sitting areas and Jacuzzi tubs. On-site Oro Restaurant serves a modern take on classic Texas cuisine, while the bar offers hand-crafted cocktails and a pleasant atmosphere for unwinding at the end of the day. Event spaces include meeting rooms and the cozy library.
