Downtown luxury accommodation opposite the Alamo
Located in the heart of the Downtown district, the Emily Morgan Hotel San Antonio is distinctive thanks to its architectural shape. The building is constructed on a triangle basis, much the same as the Flatiron Building in New York City.
This 4-star property does rest on its irregularly-shaped laurels though. Instead it offers guests a range of facilities and amenities that offer luxury and convenience. It also happens to be located directly opposite the historic Alamo.
Each of the 177 guestrooms includes the expected hotel standards, such as television, iron and ironing board, hairdryer, and tea and coffee making facilities. However, guests will also find premium bathrobes, 400 thread count Egyptian cotton sheets, daily newspaper delivery, on-demand movie channels, and designer toiletries. A mini-refrigerator is available at prior request.
Guests can work-out in the hotels well-equipped fitness room, or unwind in the outdoor pool. During the evening, guests can enjoy the heated waters of the pool or hot tub as a light show is performed. The sun decking is ideal for those looking to sunbathe or lounge under the Texan skies.
Those preferring to relax away from the heat can enjoy the hotels library, which is equipped with comfy chairs, books, magazines, and internet access. The ORO Restaurant serves breakfast, lunch, and dinner, which is a mix of traditional dishes and Texas cuisine.
The Emily Morgan Hotel San Antonio is able to accommodate business meetings or other specialist functions. With room to accommodate up to 90 guests/delegates, the hotels function space is suitable for celebratory dinners, business seminars, or even weddings.
Such is its location in the Southern Texas city, the hotel is an ideal destination for those looking to see the sights and hear the sounds of the region. Not only is the famous Alamo across the street, but many of the citys other popular tourist destinations are just a short distance away.
SeaWorld San Antonio, the largest of the three North American marine parks, can be found west of the city center, and is easily reached via car or public transport. Here visitors can enjoy a vast range of wildlife exhibits, shows, and even some hands-on learning opportunities. The theme park also features a number of rollercoasters and thrill rides, as well as a healthy portion of restaurants.
Like its marine counterpart, San Antonio Zoo is another destination in which visitors can enjoy a host of wildlife exhibits and shows, as well as an educational look at conservation in the area.
Back in the Downtown district, visitors can take a trek along the Riverwalk with all of its cycle and pedestrian paths. The walk follows the San Antonio River as it winds its way through the city towards the Guadalupe River and the Gulf of Mexico.
Other popular destinations that visitors to the Emily Morgan Hotel San Antonio can enjoy include La Villita, a shopping center that houses many local craftsmen, the Six Flags Amusement Park, and the AT&T Center, home to the NBAs San Antonio Spurs.
