Is San Antonio's Emily Morgan Hotel Haunted?
The Emily Morgan Hotel- a DoubleTree by Hilton is known for being one of the most haunted places in San Antonio. Ghost hunters and supernatural thrill seekers come from all around the world to stay at the Emily Morgan Hotel. The psychic aura of the hotel is palpable for even the most skeptical of visitors, and we have had many people tell us that they did not believe in ghosts until they stayed at The Emily Morgan. The supernatural happenings at the hotel mostly occur on the 7th, 9th, and 14th floor, so if ghosts are not for you, just request a room on a different floor. On the other hand, if you love spooky thrills and supernatural chills, these floors are great places to stay on your next haunted holiday.
The Emily Morgan Hotel building is one of the most recognizable landmarks in all of San Antonio. Built in the 1920s as the former Medical Arts Building, the hotel is a remarkable example of the Gothic revival style popular at the time of construction. Some of the most interesting features of the architecture are the bizarre terra cotta gargoyles suffering from various medical ailments. Before you even walk into the building, the gargoyles alert you that you are about to enter a unique place.
As its name suggests, the building was first used as a medical facility, and as you are probably aware, old hospitals and medical centers are some of the most frequently haunted locations. The three most haunted floors were formerly the sites of a psychiatric facility and the morgue. Many people have said to experience incredible and strange occurrences on these floors, and some guests claim to have seen multiple apparitions.
The Emily Morgan Hotel's past existence as a medical center would be enough to make it a hotspot for ghost hunters, but The Emily Morgan has more haunted history than just that- it happens to be located directly next to The Alamo, one of the most haunted places in the entire world. Most supernatural experts agree that paranormal energy can be transmitted from location to location, so even though it was built after the events at the Alamo, the Emily Morgan’s psychic aura is increased by the supernatural force emitted from the Alamo. Indeed, many guests at the Emily Morgan have reported experiencing Alamo related spectral occurrences.
