We stayed two nights and found our room to be perfect. This is an old style classic hotel that you really need to take the time to explore. Perfect location right next to the Alamo and Riverwalk. You can feel the 1940's all through the lobby. It is not the modern 1000 room type hotel but it does have great...

Wonderful historic hotel! Very close to the Alamo and the Riverwalk. I highly recommend over the regular hotel fair in the area. Very friendly & helpful staff, the room was clean and comfortable. I will be back.

Stayed here for two nights for business. This is a historic site, and the place has been in business since 1859. The location is awesome, right next door to the Alamo, close to the Riverwalk, and next door to the Rivercenter mall. Plenty to see and do within steps of the place. Lots of restaurants nearby as well. Again, the...

Truly loved the history and architecture of the hotel. Great location next to the Alamo. Hotel restaurant was very good but a little pricey. The bad was noise at night. My wife and I got almost no sleep. My wife gave up trying to sleep at 4:30AM and I gave up at 6AM when we could hear the conversations of...

After 40 plus years of family coming to our house and the preparation involved and the clean up involved, we took Thanksgiving off. We came to the Menger for a relaxing time. We decided on the Menger which was a great choice. The staff is great and everyone was so eager to make our stay as pleasant as possible. The...

It was awesome to stay in this historic hotel. We stayed in the Lillie Langtry suite on the second floor. It was spacious and elegant. The staff was friendly, courteous, and willing to help with anything you need. The only thing I wish was a little better is the coffee pot in the room.

From the minute we walked in, we were treated like family. Our room was upgraded and we were given several coupons to use. Our room was magnificent, lover looking the beautiful garden patio. The best part was the proximity to the River Walk. The only negative was that we could not stay longer!

Of course the place is beautiful and historical -- paying respect to the those who went before us and understood what makes a country and hotel great. I've had massages that were less relaxing than Justin's check-in. He reassured us about every aspect of our room. We were a bit early, so he treated us to a free drink in...

Wally H, General Manager at Menger Hotel, responded to this review

What a wonderful review. I appreciate all the kind words and especially about our staff member in the restaurant. It makes me especially happy about how much you enjoyed your room and I will look into the "conditioner and shower cap". Have a wonderful weekend and we hope to see you back at the Menger soon.

The Menger is ideally located for your time in San Antonio. It is literally next to the Alamo and most tours start/stop there. It is close to the River Walk as well. The staff of the hotel are very nice and you can book tours and get recommendations. I enjoyed spending time in the lobby particularly when i didn't want...

Wally H, General Manager at Menger Hotel, responded to this review

I agree! Our location couldn't be more convenient. We are in the heart of San Antonio next to Alamo and everything is walking distance. I especially appreciate the description of your room. We are a historical property so not all the rooms are the same. Some are huge and some are cozy, glad you enjoyed yours. Have a wonderful day...
