The Menger Hotel is the epitome of Texas History and is absolutely rich in history and content. It is breathtaking just to walk through and witness the past as it comes alive. However, be aware that there are two different sections; one being a "newer" addition. The older rooms are more enriched with the atmosphere, but lack the insulation and updates. Also, if you think you are getting a "good deal" on the price, be aware that you will probably be placed in one of the smaller rooms which may be all but hidden from any view. The one thing we did find out is that if you complain about your room, you may be relocated and sometimes it is worth the trouble. We received a tiny, miseable room with no view and when we complained, we were actually given one of the original suites that overlook Alamo Plaza! What a treat to go from bad to the best! No matter; the Menger is a part of San Antonio history that should never be missed. And don't overlook the bar! Teddy Roosevelt drank there and some say he's still around.
