• Discover The Emily Morgan Hotel, built by famous architect Ralph Cameron. The hotel was originally constructed in 1924 to be the Medical Arts Building on the Alamo Plaza. The 13-story tower is influenced by the Gothic Revival and features pieces of cast iron, unique ornamentation, and a copper roof with wood ribs.

• Look for one of the most interesting architectural features of the building—an array of gargoyles that line the building, each portraying a medical ailment. The hotel was used as a Medical Arts Building from 1924 to 1976, and housed doctors’ offices and a hospital for patients.

• Stay in the historic building which was turned into a hotel in 1984 and named after Emily D. West, a 20-year-old black indentured servant who had been captured along with other members of her household by the Mexican forces six weeks after the Alamo battle on April 16, 1836. Emily was indentured to Colonel James Morgan, and custom at the time dictated that indentured servants take the surname of their master, hence the reason she is more widely known as “Emily Morgan.”
