I loved everything about it! Surprised my spouse with an anniversary trip. Valet parked for the weekend & visited the local shops on foot. Right next door to the Alamo made for a romantic late night stroll. Antiquity & history was all bundled into this beautiful piece of San Antonio. Enjoyed our anniversary dinner in the dining room & was... More

We checked into our room and it was not ready yet so we walked around a bit and came back. Our room was supposed to be with a king bed, when we checked in "again", we were told the hotel overbooked the king beds so we had to have a queen. We got to the room, our luggage took forever... More

My wife and I stayed here (room 2066) for a conference. Did not want to stay at a conference hotel and this was only two blocks from the conference center and was cheaper. We love staying in historic inns or hotels when we can and this fit the bill. Although the hotel has been expanded over the past 150 years,... More

My family and I just spent 5 days and 5 nights and couldn't be happier with our experience. The service we received from the time we arrived until the time we left was terrific.

I am a native San Antonian. As a child, it was a very special thing to go to the Menger Hotel for Easter Brunch. Excellent food and service was the norm. I will say that this Easter, the service was quite good, however, most of the food was inedible. We were seated at 2:15 for our 1:30 reservation. Given that... More

The hotel is so beautiful. This is the biggest room, area wise that I've ever had. They have accommodated our needs with a rollaway bed, refrigerator and new coffee maker. The balcony is huge and we have used it repeatedly. The historical beauty is breathtaking. I will definitely stay here next time. The fruit/cheese tray I had requested wasn't here... More

We spent a very comfortable night at the Menger, a lovely historic hotel located next to the Alamo. Our room was spacious with a great view - we requested a suite with a balcony overlooking Alamo Plaza. Whether ghosts really live there or not, it's hard not to feel something profound staying across the street from the Alamo and in... More
