The Emily Morgan Hotel, A DoubleTree by Hilton Review

: Not many people have heard of Emily Morgan, but most know the song about her: "The Yellow Rose of Texas." This property draws attention to the local legend with its name and is one of the most popular hotels in the downtown area. It opened in 1926 and was the first documented skyscraper west of the Mississippi River. The Gothic Revival building underwent a $5 million interior renovation in 2001; then, in 2012 (under the Hilton umbrella), the entire property was treated to a $4.5 million face lift that included a complete overhaul of all 177 guest rooms, upgrade of public and meeting spaces, and the addition of free Wi-Fi. The hotel caters to every kind of visitor, from business travelers in town for meetings to couples taking romantic vacations to sightseeing families. It is a perfect introduction to San Antonio's rich history. Some of the rooms offer bird's eye views into the courtyard of the neighboring Alamo. All accommodations offer plenty of personalized touches, such as CD players and Starbucks coffee. A few of the standard rooms also have separate sitting areas and Jacuzzi tubs. Valet parking is $28 per night.
