We wanted to stay in this historic hotel, so we stopped over for a night on our way through San Antonio. The place is beautiful and has a lot of character. It sits right across the street from the Alamo, and the River Center Mall. This place would be an ideal spot to spend more time with it being in...

We spent two nights at the Menger Hotel. Our first pleasant surprise was being upgraded to a suite. It was so beautiful. The hotel is rich with history and just a perfect get away in a perfect location!

We love the Menger. Best location: beside the Alamo and across from entrance to Riverwalk. We always learn some new piece of Texas history from our stay. The rooms have an old world charm. Our room was the Evelyn Raper Suite. It has a large balcony overlooking the Alamo Plaza. Wouldn't consider staying anywhere else. The Menger feels like home.

We stayed here during a conference last week and this week and the way we were treated and the facilities were great. We also were close to the convention center, the mall, the Alamo and the Riverwalk. The Sunday brunch was also good too. I would definitely recommend! Also dont forget to ask capacity of the rooms since our room...

We stayed at the Menger while in town for a conference at the nearby convention center. The hotel is certainly an excellent alternative to the chain hotels that are all around the downtown San Antonio area. Steps from The Alamo, one of the highlights is seeing the lighted horse-drawn coaches line up for the evening and falling asleep listening to...

I am a big fan of the Mango Ice Cream too, so glad you enjoyed it. The horses clip-clop pass by office window everyday which I too enjoy the sound of, it's very relaxing. Thank for you for sharing your experience with me I really appreciate the time you took to write about us.

Excellent location in downtown and staff were wonderful. Beautiful exterior but the hotel is very old so don't expect any of the modern bells and whistles. This is especially true for the bathroom. I asked for the newest side of the hotel to avoid any of the ghost activities.

I was in town for the NASPA conference, and stayed at the Menger for 4 nights. The hotel was wonderful. The historic property is elegant and comfortable. Property security was tight, pizza delivery driver was not allowed up to the room.

A good location and a part of the history of the city. If you like modern then this really isn't for you but if you're good with a nice, friendly, boutique hotel then check this out! Staff very friendly.
