My trip to San-Antonio and staying at the prestigeous Menger hotel, left me with much expectations. And indeed, most of them came true. The hotel is beautiful, located across the street from the Alamo, and other turist attractions such a Ripley believe it or not. It is situated at the heart of the turistic part of San-Antionio near the splendid River Walk area.
The hotel interior is also grand with lots of photos and other items reminicensce of the glorious past. The room was very nice. The breakfast was tasty and plentiful. The service was somewhat tarded. Room service did not provide shampoo and soap bars regularly during my 5 days stay and I had to go to the front desk to ask for provisions. The small room containing 5 cardio workout instruments lacked mattresses and free weights.
The bar was nicely decorated but had a poor choice of Wiskey and beer.
For those who need absolute quite to get to sleep, the cricking wooden floors can pose a problem from the upper floors.
