The Menger is one of our favorite hotels. It is charming, has a history and is very well run. The rooms have been updated and the location is fantastic. The patio is charming and the pool is big and picturesque. And where else can you drink in a bar that handled Teddy Roosevelt?

What a great hotel this is!! Love the history and the old atmosphere! The courtyard and rocking chairs provide a wonderful place to unwind with a nice cold drink from the Menger Bar. I'll definitely stay again when in San Antonio! I highly recommend this hotel!

the Menger is a beautifully well kept historic hotel with amazing staff/service. Right in the center of town, close to dining and shopping. Didn't get to see any ghosts but would love to stay again if we're near San Antonio Texas again.

This hotel is beautiful! Nostalgic! Smells like some good history happened here! This was incredible to just walk around. We didn't get to try the infamous mango ice cream, but the sunday brunch was incredible!

The ac didn't cool but they brought us a box fan that did the job. It circulated the air and made it pleasant. The room had recently been renovated, however the bathroom door lock was on the outside of the door. The new paint also made the door stick for the bathroom; requiring a strong shoulder to get the door...

Beautiful, Classic hotel, a la Europe. Very large, comfortable room. Lovely, wide hallways. Ice machine near my room was broken for the two days I was there. Big inconvenience! Should've been fixed within 12 hours. Great room service
