The graceful hotel steeped in history and welcome. It's located conveniently on Alamo Square and adjacent to River Walk. Stay where famous persons have enjoyed the atmosphere and ambience. The staff are professional and helpful. The dining room has a delicious selection awaiting you every meal. Free internet with good signal.

This hotel is not on the riverwalk but close to all the downtown landmarks including the Alamo across the street. Average service at check-in with an older style room. Nothing special, but no issues either. If price right worth a stay if you don't want a river hotel.

Had a great stay at this classic property right off the Alamo square & park. The river walk access is really right across the street, and the horse and buggies going by really gives it a nice feel. Our room was excellent, nice, clean, and comfortable.

The hotel is in a great location for seeing the sights - the Alamo across the street, just a short block to enter the River Walk, history at your doorstep. The beauty of this hotel is it's age and history - you can easily feel what early San Antonio would have been. The rooms are nicely furnished and well appointed...

Stayed one night around Christmas. Hotel was lovey with the decorations. All the employees are wonderful and accommodating. Walking distance to the Alamo, The River Walk and shopping. Historic bar was nice but very loud. Well appointed room with high ceiling. The wood floors squeak in the older parts of the hotel, which is really cool.

My go-to hotel in San Antonio. The rooms are lovely and the historic hotel lobby is so beautiful. The gardens are superb. You gotta go to the Menger Bar. Its a classic! The restaurant is a tad disappointing to me. the food is not that good, but the wait staff are wonderful and attentive.

Hotel has great location everything is in walking distance. Checking out is a bit confusing with BELL SERVICE. And be careful what card you leave on file I have $605 on hold and can't not use for 5-10 days. Menger hotel puts daily holds on card even though I used cash for all purchases at hotel.

I had a great time at the Menger Hotel! The staff was great and incredibly helpful, and the Menger is a picturesque, historic hotel just across the street from the Alamo. The internet connection is a bit weak and the climate control in rooms isn't automatic, but a small price to pay for the ambiance.

“Rooms were extremely clean and well stocked when we arrived. However, housekeeping did not get to our room the next day until about 3:30 or 4:00 in the afternoon when we were taking a break from convention events; by then, we no longer wanted room service. We requested a few towels and we just made do. ”
