Located on Alamo Plaza. Great rooms. The bar is the location were Theodore Roosevelt recruited the "Roug Riders" in 1898. I went there to visit the Alamo. Their is a lot of history that passed through that lobby. You will not regret staying there.

Just stayed one night, but was wishing for more. The historical ambience of the hotel is a tourist attraction in itself. The package included two free cocktails, $25 food credit in the restaurant or room service. The room we had was huge. It overlooks the Alamo and is about a 1 1/2 block safe, lighted walk to the Riverwalk. The... More

Centrally located in downtown San Antonio, it is within easy walking distance of the Alamo and Riverwalk and other city attractions, It is an historic hotel where Teddy Roosevelt recruited the Rough Riders. There is a great classic bar off the lobby. The rooms are unique by todays standards which is fun. I think there is a newer annex of... More

My wife and stayed stay here for two nights over the labor day weekend (2014) and we had a nice, comfortable but somewhat small room. Many older hotels have smaller rooms because that's just the way they were built years ago, and the Menger is the oldest hotel in San Antonio having been constructed in 1858. Despite that, the common... More

My husband and I stayed at this hotel last month. We arrived earlier than the check in time and they were very nice to allow us to check in early and rest. The hotel is beautiful! very clean and the decor is very pretty. Everything is at walking distance. I would definitely choose this hotel again. The rooms are small.... More

I actually stayed at the Menger about 5 or so years ago (i cant do a later date than oct 2013). It was fantastic. We stayed there with family and although the room was pretty basic considering the beauty of the rest of the hotel, it made no difference to our stay. Clean, stunning and the staff were very friendly.... More

I stayed here for 5 nights during a conference in SA. The hotel is old but well kept, very close to Alamo and riverwalk attractions. The stuff are friendly. You can't expect more at this rate, the room is old but comfortable. If you travel on budget, this is the place to stay.

We planned on eating before checking in, but we couldn't find a good parking so we decided to check in (it was 2, check in was at... More

This was the first time we've stayed at the Menger Hotel and it was like stepping back in time. The rooms were very comfortable and clean. The Hotel has "A LOT" of history as does the Bar. I would guess the first floor, was what appeared to be Marble was beautiful. The staff were really nice and helpful. The Breakfast... More
