This is a very unique hotel. The history is unbelievable. Lots of place around it to walk too also. The staff was very nice, especially, Justin at the front desk. Takes quick awhile for you to get your car from the garage especially at checkout. I would recommend this hotel. I wish we would have tried out the restaurant.

Lovely old hotel. Well maintained with gorgeous antiques and some reproductions in period style throughout. Fantastic location - within walking distance of many restaurants, shops, attractions, etc. and a quick Uber ride anywhere else you don't want to walk. Loved our room, not large but so pretty and comfy. The Hotel Bar was the best we visited in San Antonio.... More

Lovely historic hotel that has been maintained in excellent condition. Very friendly and accommodating staff. Especially like the ease of checking in and out. Rooms were large and well furnished .......don't know why room only had a double bed vs queen or king.

We attended the Alamo Symposium and stayed 3 nights at the Menger in the "historic" section of the hotel, 3rd floor. Although very nostalgic and wonderful antiques throughout, we noticed quite a loud rumbling noise coming from what we originally thought was the ceiling fan. But once we turned the fan off we realized it was coming from the air... More

My family & I attended the "Save Texas History" symposium at the Menger, and could not have asked for a more appropriate context from which to address new information on the Alamo. Not only were the day's lectures and exhibits beautifully presented in the Menger's ballroom, but my room accommodations were equally lovely, quiet, and peaceful.

It is a beautiful old historic hotel. There were a few glitches with the shower /plumbing but the overall experience was nice. A great location and hotel is filled with beautiful antiques. A few friendly ghosts as well.

I just returned from a 3 night stay at The Menger for a short trip to San Antonio with a friend. The location is perfect for exploring all of the major tourist spots in the city. The Alamo is right next door and the Riverwalk, Majestic Theater and King William Historic District are a short walk as well. The hotel... More

The location is absolutely great, downtown right across from Alamo Plaza. We simply walked to the Alamo and it was right near the highway as well for easy access anywhere. Each and every one of the staff made our stay more enjoyable. I mean, the valet was great when I first pulled my car up; then the guy who greeted... More
