The name sounds as though it should be awash in floral prints and lace runners, but this historic hotel right behind the Alamo is actually pretty stylish, and is now a Hilton property. The boutique-style rooms are clean, large and enjoy all the luxury amenities.
(The names are similar, but note that the Emily Morgan Hotel is not the Hotel Emma, which recently opened in the Pearl District.) Parking is valet-only and is $35 per day. The pet fee per stay is $50.
