Historic hotel right next to the Alamo, Riverwalk, lots of restaurants and shops.The staff is very friendly and the hotel is clean. It has that old touch, which makes it very lovely. I loved it and will go back there.

Love this hotel, but it really needs some updating. Restaurant was excellent with the best seafood buffet in existence. Spa was wonderful. I had a very enjoyable massage. Location was close to everything in downtown.

I had a lovely stay at the Menger. I'm afraid I can't remember what it was called but we stayed in the room at the front with the large balcony. The hotel has a lovely feel to it and the location could be any better, next door to the Alamo and a short walk to the Riverwalk. I wouldn't hesitate... More

We just stayed at the Menger Hotel in San Antonio, Texas last week for the second time. I highly recommend this hotel. It was built in 1859, only 23 years after the fall of the Alamo, and has since had two extensions. The customer service and hospitality are exceptional. The rooms are comfortable. This trip I was very pleased at... More

This was easily one of the most enjoyable experiences I've had in some time. This was a wonderfully kept and tastefully updated 150 year old hotel. I took a walk down a hallway that included a round corner and it was charming. The inkling of imagery in the long hall reminded me of the hallway in the movie The Shining.... More

I stayed at the Menger for my conference this year and I was very much pleased with the accommodations and quality of the hotel. I was even more impressed with all the history within these walls. Great job from the staff of expeditiously meeting my needs.

Spent nearly a week at the Menger Hotel. Starting off with the positives, the customer service was outstanding! Walked in and was greeted by a smile and helpful staff. I arrived a little early and the staff was able to immediately assign me a room. The room was comfortable and had all of the expected perks. The location was in... More
