I was set up at the Menger when I attended the Annual Biomedical Research Conference for Minority Students in November 2014. After hearing that the hotel was built not to long after the battle of the Alamo, I thought I would hear long wales in the hall ways. That was not the case and the hotel is far more presentable...

Stayed in this hotel which is right across the street from The Alamo. The place is really charming and it is supposedly haunted! Didn't see any ghosts but had a really nice stay. The foyer and public areas are fantastically traditionally appointed. It was really charming.

My wife, son, and myself finally stayed here so my wife could run the San Antonio Rock 'n' Roll Half Marathon. The race began near the Alamodome. Most hotels downtown are expensive. Why stay at a low-end chain hotel when we could stay at the Menger for $10 more? They did have a marathon package that we used. As we... More

If you are into historic sites this place is loaded with history. It is a bit of a challenge to find the restaurant, I had to ask the receptionist if there was a restaurant in the hotel. Waiter / Waitress: poor - I gave this a poor rating because the person that waited on us was not familiar with the... More

My husband and I stayed here for a night to enjoy Cristmas in SAn Antonio. The Menger is classic Victorian and was elegantly made up for Christmas. Lunch in the Colonial Room was very nice and the Mango Ice is a must for desert. We asked to stay on the older side. We got a room on the 3rd floor... More

The Menger is across from the Alamo and two blocks from the Riverwalk. It is around the corner from the visitors' center, where we booked our "package", which included trolley for two days, riverwalk boat ride, entrance to the top of the "Tower Of The Americas". Was very good.

My husband and I checked into the Menger on Dec. 15 and checked out the 17th. I have stayed at the Menger before. On this occasion, we were sent to a room on the 2nd floor that was so tiny, there was no seating area. We asked for a different room as there was the two of us and my... More

I was very excited to visit this hotel. The hotel is full of history, and based on the website seems so promising. The location can't be beat: right next to the Alamo and in the heart of San Antonio. However the hotel itself seems held together with spackle and painting tape. The decor of the common areas is significantly dated... More

We had been to San Antonio before and saw the Menger and really liked the location and so we decided to try it for a short weekend. The hotel is beautiful and has a rich historic feel to it. Our room had a wonderful view of the Alamo. The restroom was very clean, but we will not go back and... More

The Menger Hotel is a historic hotel built in the mid 1800s. The rooms are a bit tight and have the basic amenities, but the ambience of the hotel more than makes up for any downfalls. The spacious lobby is filled with many historical artifacts, and there is a beautifully landscaped courtyard to sit in. The hotel also has a... More
