Historic Hotel set next to the Alamo. The hotel seems to have been constructed/expanded two or three times since the original build in 1859. I have stayed in the original building and found the rooms very small. The rooms seem to be larger in the newer buildings. There are also balconies in the newer buildings. The restaurant is very nice and breakfasts are well presented-the wait staff is professional. The Menter bar is worth stopping in for a drink as Teddy Roosevelt recruited his rough riders at this here. The Menger is literally next door to the Alamo. The Riverwalk is easily accessed thru the mall next door. Morton’s Steakhouse is less than 50 meters from the Menger’s valet entrance. There is also a Dave and Busters plus a Yardhouse at the mall. They may both front on the Riverwalk. Overall I like the convenience to the Riverwalk and Alamo the Menger offers. It is without doubt a great place to stay during your visit to San Antonio.
