The Menger is ideally located for your time in San Antonio. It is literally next to the Alamo and most tours start/stop there. It is close to the River Walk as well. The staff of the hotel are very nice and you can book tours and get recommendations. I enjoyed spending time in the lobby particularly when i didn't want...

I stay at the Menger every chance I get. The location provides easy access in and out of downtown San Antonio. There is a big outdoor swimming pool. The bar and restaurant are excellent. I like to stay in the historic part of the hotel and feel especially lucky if I get a view of the Alamo!

This hotel is located right across from the Alamo. The rooms were comfortable and clean. The inner garden was beautiful and very restful. Be sure to visit the Bar. It is a little dark but really worthwhile,, great drink along with the history of where Teddy Roosevelt recruited for his Rough Riders., The staff was friendly and helpful especially Doreen.

We appreciate your review. In 1887 Major Kampmann decided that a new "taproom" should be added to the Menger Hotel. The Menger Bar is a replica of the House of Lords Pub in London; so the dark cherry wood is what makes the bar dark and cozy. I also appreciate your comments about our staff. Thank you and have a...

The location is perfect, and we really liked the old world charm of the place, the wifi was fast and the shower was good. As this place was billed as being haunted we were keen to see some evidence of past lives. And we did. But not in the way we hoped. Peanuts, sweet wrappers, a tissue, and various other...

I enjoyed my stay at The Menger after I figured out the heating/cooling system. It was too hot in the room and when I turned off the heat and turned on the a/c it just got hotter! The next night I turned the unit off all together and it was fine. It was a nice walk from the Convention Center.

I like this hotel overall. It's really close to a the heart of San Antonio and the hotel itself has a lot of character. The black and white tile floors were a throwback to an era where we built things of quality to last. The staff was helpful. And my bed was comfortable and my room was spacious. However, given...

The Menger has everything and is close to everything. Accommodations and service were superior and all the staff were courteous, helpful and friendly. They all acted like they loved their jobs and nothing I asked about was disdained. I will stay here again and recommend it highly.

Several reviewers have said that the Menger is a bit worn, but I think that is part of its historical charm. The decor and fixtures in the lobby and hallways have a dated feel, but are definitely not run-down. The room was fresh and clean with a comfortable bed and a bathroom that was highly functional but could have had...

We were going to San Antonio for the first time and wanted to stay in an old hotel that had history and class. We definitely found that at the Menger. The place oozes with history and the finishes and environment were classic. The Menger Bar was very cool and the dining room was fun to eat breakfast in. Great location...
