This was probably the 8th time I have stayed at the Menger. We have family in Texas but always include a stay here. The ambiance is wonderful. Classical music plays throughout and sometimes the piano is playing in the gorgeous lobby. Breakfast in the courtyard is reasonable and delicious. There are rocking chairs available there for reading the paper or relaxing anytime. I have stayed at the riverwalk Hyatt and the Hilton and compared to their pools, the Menger Pool is huge. There are palm trees and beautiful plants around it. The balcony rooms overlooking the pool are very large rooms (the balcony is large too with an overhead light if you want to read out there at night). I like to sleep late and have never heard any noises from the pool being cleaned in the morning. This visit, the desk clerk was kind enough to work me into a balcony pool room once she realized I did not mind checking in later in order to get that type room. I do wish that they would put coffee makers in the rooms, however. It is a long walk for the complimentary coffee in the lobby.
