The Menger Hotel is an outstanding experience starting the very capable staff at the front desk and ending with a nightcap at the Menger Bar. The hotel is able to maintain its' historic value while providing comfortable modern amenities we are all used to having. The room was comfortable although the bathroom is understandably small. With an on-site restaurant, bar,...

HOTEL’S FAVOURITE REVIEW

My wife and I stayed at the Menger Hotel earlier this week for a few days. It was wonderful! Great historic hotel, beautiful decor, and wonderful people. We ate in the Colonial Restaurant, in the hotel on two days for breakfast and one day for dinner. All was wonderful. Our dinner was the best, as we had a wonderful woman...

The Menger was a great place to stay. It was easy to walk to the Riverwalk, La Villeta, the Alamo, Market Square, etc. I loved looking at all of the historical photos and artwork, and the hotel itself is beautiful. The downsides? The shower didn't have adequate water pressure, the fan make a constant "ticking" noise, no free breakfast, and...

his is an historic hotel from the days of Teddy Roosevelt - suited to the rich and famous of the day. Includes intriguing architecture, true elegance, spacious courtyard, spacious pool area, and the Menger Bar, established in 1869 - way fun! Truly made it an experience above and beyond just an excellent hotel.

Walking around the lobby and Colonial Restaurant of this hotel is like a trip through history. Just ignore the shop entrances on the street side. The rooms are bright and quaint, and the garden is small, but very pretty. All of the employees were helpful and seemed to be working very hard, especially the gardeners and grounds keepers. Be sure...

A beautifully appointed in the colonial hotel right opposite the Alamo. Superb food and service. The integral gift shop offers fantastically carved wooden sculptures. The room was really comfortable with all the features you would expect..

I feel this hotel could've been better. First of all, I found hair on the bathroom floor and the shower was not clean. I understand this is an old building, but the bathroom door squeaked so loud I felt I was in a haunted house. The walls are paper thin and the room was tiny.

I stayed in the historic side of the hotel for the first time this trip. My room was on the outer wall closest to the River Center Mall. There's a fairly narrow cobblestone alley between the hotel and the mall, with some tables from restaurants out in the alley. It is also a heavy traffic area coming in and out...

We appreciate your review. April is the busiest time of the year in downtown San Antonio with our annual Fiesta celebration festivities so it does get noisy. Definitely ask for a quieter section next time you are in town. Thank you for input and enjoy your day, we hope to have you back again soon.

Thanks to Doreen for setting up reservations downtime for my husband's 60 birthday at the last minute! We had a fabulous time and really enjoyed our stay at the Menger. She made our stay very special. We also really enjoyed breakfast on Sunday in the hotel restaurant.

“The room was spacious that I had. A/C worked well. It was near the Ice machine. This trip was during Fiesta and there was more activity in the hall ways than normal. It quieted down by 10 o clock.”
