Have always wanted to stay here every time I visited San Antonio, and I finally got my chance. Located next door to the Alamo and basically across the street from the river walk is a great perk. The history associated with this hotel is staggering, you can spend a whole day wondering the halls and lobby enriching yourself with not... More

We stayed at the Menger for several celebrating our 25th anniversary. We had a view of the park around the Alamo. Noise from the street was a little loud, with horse drawn carriages outside all evening and tour buses all day, but room facing the interior courtyard would be quieter. The hotel is beautiful and a very short walk to... More

The hotel is very nicely decorated and we loved the old style feel of the hotel. The employees at the hotel were extremely helpful. We had to pay a $30 parking fee which most hotels on the river walk require you to pay but we were given cards for two free drinks each so it came out pretty even. The... More

Ideally positioned for the Alamo and 2 minutes from the Riverside. This is a large hotel with plenty of history and character. Our room in the old part was large, comfortable and quiet, overlooking the central patio. The Colonial Restaurant was a bit old fashioned and stuffy (waiters in penguin suits) but don't be put off, the service and food... More

Wonderful location. Beautiful historic hotel right in the centre of San Antonio, next to the Alamo. Everything else within easy walking distance. Staff friendly and helpful. Breakfast buffet less variety than I expected for a hotel of this standard.

We stayed at the Menger Hotel as part of a Reunion group. The hotel staff could not have been nicer. The room we had was great! It was large with two very comfortable beds. It had a coffee maker which I always appreciate. The bathroom was small, but, spotless. Our view from our window was the wall around the Alamo.... More

1st Anniversary at the Menger was above and beyond what we expected. Staff are courteous. Great customer service! Complimentary gift on arrival, which was a unexpected pleasure, shows what a great hotel they are. Reservation and check in staff deserve kudos on such friendly service..

This hotel is literally right next to the Alamo (our room window overlooked it!!) and just around the corner from the Riverwalk. The staff were exceedingly polite and helpful, free wifi was included, the decor was old school classy and some of the internal features of the hotel were stunning (the Victorian Foyer, the old bar, the photos & display...
