Surrounded by vintage furnishings, the rooms are comfortable and well maintained. It's heart is historic but it is worth noting it has witnessed renovations and expansion. All around are photographs and memorabilia, especially relating to Teddy Roosevelt as well as artworks referencing the defense of the Alamo. Nearby are many shopping and dining options but the Menger holds it own,...

You could stay at one of the Riverwalk hotels that are trendier, but this hotel has so much history that it permeates! The rooms are wonderful, the lobby is fantastic, and location is impossible to beat.

The Menger Hotel was first opened in 1859. It is right next to the Alamo and The Riverwalk is only one block away. The room we had was a little small but it had everything that you would find in a modern hotel. There is a nice dining room on the first floor as well as The Famous Menger Bar....

We arrived a little late, but were automatically upgraded to the Roy Rogers Suite! We were expecting everything we got! Great hotel, best breakfast. It is close to all of the River Walk things you would want to see.

The Menger is a Historic Hotel very well located and a little less expensive than the ones on the Riverwalk. even though it is an old building the rooms are spacious and comfortable. yet, the toilets have no towel hangers. due to the age of the building it is a bit noisy in the nights because you can hear the...

The best thing about the Menger Hotel is its location. It is directly across the street from the Alamo and sits in the heart of everything. There is a very nice mall and the start of the Riverwalk behind the hotel. You can pick up the hop on hop off double-decker bus right outside the front door, which will take...

The oldest hotel in San Antonio, the Menger features a breathtaking lobby, a magnificent turn-of-the century bar, a stunning courtyard garden,and wonderfully comfortable rooms. We rarely sleep well in hotels but the Menger just clicked with us. Right next door to the Alamo, the Menger is a short walk from the Riverwalk. We look forward to staying here again!

Thank you! We look forward to having you back. We just had our 158th Birthday on February 1st. When you return you will see our main lobby look. The Victorian Section built in 1859 will not change. Enjoy your day and thanks again.

I loved the historic feel of this hotel. Yes, I could tell certain things, like the bathroom or windows, were old. But all the necessary comforts were updated to provide a very comfortable experience. The staff were kind and classy. The pool area and historic bar were fantastic for unwinding after long days at my convention.
