I recently stayed in the Menger for 9 days with friends. It is a lovely old hotel. It has two sides, a new one and an old one. We stayed in the new side. The rooms were clean and comfortable. Had a little problems with the heat, it was a little too hot. We had cocktails in the famous Menger... More

I say here on business 2 times a year for the past 10 years. It across the street from the Alamo & walking distance to the river walk. It takes you back to another century when life was simple. The staff is always fabulous. The heat normally is a tough one and I'm always cold but I bring warm jammies... More

This was a novel experience and a good time. However this is a really old hotel. The meeting rooms smelled moldy. They are renovating rooms and the newly done ones seem to be nice. My room was not renovated. There was a 3 inch step up to the bathroom which I had to keep reminding myself to watch or one... More

We have stayed at this location a few times. A couple of times when my wife and I wish to play "tourist" in our beautiful city.Other times, it was the host hotel for national conferences we either set up or were attending. The atmosphere is fantastic. It is like stepping back into turn of the century elegance with all the... More

I stayed at the Menger for business. I had a room with a full bed. It was not a huge room, but was perfect for my needs. The bathrooms was very clean and the room was in perfect order. The staff went out of their way to make my stay enjoyable. Loved the coffee outside of the dining room fresh... More

We stopped one night at the Menger on our way to the Gulf Coast. We loved it. Our room was one of the older Victorian rooms so it was smaller than some hotel rooms but wonderfully comfortable. Staff were friendly and efficient. We loved the antiques and the architecture that gave the hotel a luxurious atmosphere. We enjoyed the historic... More

My colleagues and I stayed at the Menger for a three-day conference. At first, we marveled at hotel’s charm. Some of the paintings are brilliant and beautiful. The location of the hotel is convenient, too. We walked to the river walk, restaurants, and shops on a daily basis. Although the daily rate was a higher rate than I’m used to... More

If there are ghosts at the Menger they must be in charge of cleaning the lobby rest rooms and managing the ventilation system. The hotel has a certain charm but it is offset by a musty air quality, noisy ice machines and outdated fixtures. While I enjoyed my visit to San Antonio, I wouldn't stay there again.

This was a weekend trip to San Antonio to visit wedding/reception venues for our daughter's upcoming wedding. We decided to book different hotels over the stay to help us decide where we wanted to reserve rooms for all of our out of town wedding guests. We booked 2 rooms and were really looking forward to staying here, given the history... More
