A little slice of history...

Posted Jun 24, 2017
We love to stay at little historical places that hold on to their true form. The Menger did not disappoint!

Convenient location

Posted Jun 19, 2017
Pros: We appreciated the historical charm of the building. Made use of the gym, the pool, and hot tub. The Saturday breakfast buffet was good value.
Cons: Our room had absolutely no towel racks or hooks. Where are we supposed to hang our towels to dry? Weird.
Location: Alamo, Riverwalk (of course!), San Fernando Cathedral, Rivercenter Mall, The Battle for Texas Freedom, Aztec and Majestic theatres, Houston St.
This was our fifth trip to San Antonio and the first time staying in the Menger Hotel. The hotel employees were efficient and friendly at getting us checked in. The elevator was a little slow and small, but there are only five or six floors to the section of the building where our rooms were located. We received the requested two double beds and had a view of the pool, but was surprised to learn there was no microwave and in-room safe to store our passports. We requested a mini-fridge from the front desk and it was promptly delivered. Rooms were clean with bottled water provided daily. Beds were comfortable and the A/C was very quiet. The floor was quiet after the first night. Try to avoid adjoining rooms as our neighbours on the first night were very noisy and they sounded like they were right in our room. All was good when the left the next day. The restaurant did not serve á la carte menu items for breakfast, buffet was the only option. We picked up small breakfast items at the Starbucks around the corner attached to the mall. Location was excellent as it is right on Alamo Plaza next to the Rivercenter Mall and the Alamo. A short walk to the Riverwalk and the Convention Center (for the Comic Con).

Historic excellence.

Posted May 15, 2017
Pros: First class condition, service, location.
Cons: There was a sign posted pointing to the River Walk that was misleading. Need clear information, made obvious, about the exact location wrt RiverWalk.
Location: Immediately across a street from the Alamo. Could not be better.
Very nice day visiting local attractions. Family history includes stays at the Menger: my parents honeymooned here.

Amazing atmosphere. This was so beautiful and elegant. They upgraded me to a suite just because they had it available! Love the lobby music, the beautiful gardens and the gorgeous Victorian antiques in the lobby.

Deep in the Heart of Texas

Posted May 3, 2017
Pros: Location and ambiance
Cons: Changing anything would ruin the experience
Location: Smack dab in the middle of beautiful San Antonio. Next door to the famous Alamo, near the San Antonio River, a street trolley ride to Market Square!!
This is a wonderful old Hotel that feels like part of the Texas History story. Great location for touring beautiful San Antonio on the River. Looking forward to our next and longer stay.

Pros: The hotel was great. The in-house dining room is lovely, food great, but a little pricey.
What a treat! A beautiful, old hotel with all modern amenities, while retaining it's elegant character.
