I stayed at the hotel for a conference. The food and accomodations were very good. The service was top notch. I plan to stay here again with my family. Outstanding location for the Alamo and Riverwalk. highly recommend.

Just returned from a business/vacation trip to San Antonio. Our stay at the Menger Hotel was wonderful. Very old and beautiful. Staff is extremely nice and helpful.

The dining room/breakfast staff were out of this world. Extremely helpful and kind.

Rooms were large. Only complaint, they were having problems with the hot water.

Room Tip: I'm sure all the rooms are good, but be sure to visit the shops in the lobby.

I recently attended a conference and randomly selected the Menger as my hotel as the price was reasonable and it was easy walking distance to the convention center. I was very pleasantly surprised by the historic nature of the hotel (original section was built in 1859?). High ceilings, mosaic floors, fancy hardwoods, a central garden patio, and large rotunda dominate the interior. It is obviously an architecturally significant structure deserving of its place on the National Historic Register. One can imagine that this was THE gathering place in old San Antonio. It is situated next to the Alamo, half a block away from the Riverwalk, and about a 7 minute walk to the convention center.

Room Tip: There are several sections to this hotel built at differing periods. My room was in the original historic section build in the mid 19th century. While the hotel is generally good for accessibility, my room had a pretty significant step up into the bathroom. I gathered that The room was a very good size, high ceilings are great and the ceiling fan (in addition to A/C) was also most welcome, though it did make an annoying ticking noise that prevented me from using it during sleep. The room was a very good size and furnished in period pieces although some of the period seating appeared to be well used. The mattress was very comfortable.

At the tour guide's urging, we came in and toured the lobby, which is a mini museum with showcases full of original papers, pictures, ledger books, and artifacts. There is a whole section on Teddy Roosevelt, because he recruited his Rough Riders in the bar. The hotel is the oldest in town, and

The only problem I had is that the bed was a full size bed and the pillows were full size pillows. I couldn't get comfortable. Also you could hear the elevator at it went up and down throughout the night. Other than that the stay was awesome.
