We stayed 5 nights at the Menger for a music convention and had a wonderful stay as always. We have stayed in years past and have never had any problems. The rooms are tastefully decorated and clean, the beds are comfortable and the bathroom was spotless! We love the historical aspect of the hotel and the fact that the rooms...

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...

If you are into history this is the place for you. You can't get closer to the Alamo and the bar has a rich history of its own. The hotel is located within easy walking distance to the shops and food.

My husband and I enjoyed 3 nights in the Menger for the SERA conference. We rested well in the big, comfortable bed every night. Friday night, some of the guests were loud, but everything else was great! The staff was friendly and helpful, too.

I have stayed at the Menger over the last 12 years. This year was my worst experience ever (for any hotel). First it was bloody cold. The rooms would not get heated up because the hotel had a policy of not switching on the heat unless the outside temperature fell below 45! That is just not acceptable. How can they...

My husband and I went here for our Valentine's Day getaway, and the customer service was nothing great. In fact, they weren't even that friendly. Showers are lukewarm with little to no pressure. Hot tub isn't hot. Food is WAY overpriced, and the whole hotel has a certain smell. They make you pay $28 for valet parking, so we lost...

This is the oldest continuously operating hotel west of the Mississippi. Elegantly styled in the lobby, with antiques scattered throughout. There is an upscale antique store inside the lobby area and they showcase some of their pieces in the hotel. Even though the hotel is 158 years old, it has all the conveniences of modern structures. Comfortably air conditioned, and...

Great location for the River Walk, Mall and Alamo, all within a very short walking distance. As for the rooms: bad lighting, you have to step up into the restroom, no ventilation in the restroom, and the floors creak.

The Menger has good size rooms, the location in downtown San Antonio is fantastic, and the hotel has undeniable character. It is a great place to stay, and can also be relatively reasonable in price compared to surrounding hotels. The front desk staff were efficient and well-mannered. You do have to be prepared when staying in the summer though because...
