Note to self. Historic equals dump. Staff was rude. Upon checkin was upgraded to a suite which I was excited about. After checking on the room, realized there was no shower. Only a tub. Was not told about this at checkin. They switched me to a regular room. The walls are paper thin. You can hear full conversations next door.... More

Stayed in this hotel for three nights 16/18 March. We were on the third floor overlooking a roof. Fortunately we were not staying there for the view but the location, which couldn't be beaten. Walk out the front door turn right you are a stone's through from The Alamo left and you are at the mall. Straight across the street... More

This hotel has new and old sections. I wanted the old but got the new which was great for 3 in a room. Lots of space, large dressing area, plenty of room for all our luggage and we slept great. It's a 3-4 block walk to the convention center, and the hotel staff was helpful in every way.

This hotel has a cool historic lobby area and nice outdoor pool. Rooms could use some updating in bathroom area, but were comfortable. Queen bed was not available for us so we got two doubles. Great location near sights.

Menger Hotel has an incredible rich history with so many famous people who visited, stayed or ate there and some enjoyed libations during their stay! Elegant ambiance with a classic flair. Highly recommend if home comfort is needed. A restaurant on the premise that has a wonderful breakfast and good selections on their dinner menu. Small, quaint bar with a... More

We booked a night at the Menger Hotel, since it was close to the start of the Alamo 13.1. Being that it had a long history with the city of San Antonio, we were excited about experiencing the Menger, and looked forward to a short walk to the race start. Unfortunately, our stay was less than ideal. The bed was... More

We didn't stay at the hotel but had brunch in the restaurant. The wife and I always want to have something light for lunch but decided to go with Plan B and had the buffet at the Menger and really enjoyed it. First of all the setting is exceptional. I don't know anything about the hotel but the lobby was... More

This hotel was built in the late 18th century so has some interesting history to discover. The room I had - in the old part of the hotel - was small but perfectly adequate. All the staff I met were welcoming and keen to help. I enjoyed reading my newspaper sitting with others in rocking chairs around a courtyard! -... More

We were here for Texas Independence Day and this is some place! Full of history and luxury, what a beautiful hotel. Situated close to the Alamo in downtown San Antonio, the hotel gives you a look into the past southern charm and energy that is part of Texas itself. Everything about this place is to commended. The rooms exquisite, the... More

I understand that older hotels tend to lack some things that travelers might be more accustomed to seeing in newer hotel chains. This isn't a ritzy, modern hotel but it has a lot of historical charm in its decor and architecture. However, there were a few issues that can't be blamed on the fact that this hotel is historical.
