Our Hotel Planner Expert Reviews of The Menger Hotel

Our expert hotel planners periodically visit and review the hotels we represent in person.
"Location, History and a Little Mystery"
Overall Score4.5/ 5
If you like History and want to be able to tell a story about your stay, the Historic Menger Hotel is the place to stay. From their great location, just minutes from the RiverWalk and Convention Center to their high ceiling, stained glass window in the ceiling of the foyer to the Restaurant to the Historic Alamo the Menger has it all. The high ceilings and arched molding in the restaurant makes you want to stay for a while. The food is very tasty and affordable. Nothing compares to the Breakfast buffet with made to order omelets and waffles. One thing you don't see these days are telephone booths, if you want to step back in time get some change and make a call. If relaxation is what you are looking for The Alamo Spa should be on your must do list. Because of its great history and yes a little mystery the hotel is World Renowned and featured often for their none paying guest, how ghostly? Whether you are travelling for business or pleasure the Menger is the place to stay. Their friendly staff will assist you with your arrangements.

Below are the verified reviews from guests that we have booked recently:
"Historic Hotel Truly Embraces the Concept of Customer Service!"
Overall Score5.0/ 5
From Reservations to Valet/Bell Staff, to Desk personnel and each Housekeeper/Maintenance person encountered, every employee embodied the concept of How can we help with a smile. Our Family Reunion, in the middle of Fiesta, was an absolute success thanks to everyone from Monika Vega who I first contacted for a Group Booking to Liz Torres who ensured my scattered family was booked and worked with me throughout the planning process to ensure our stay was absolutely perfect from Check in to check out. I cannot say enough about the incredible staff which says a lot about the Great Management team. Thank you. Beverly and the entire Worley Family.

4.0 out of 5. Based on 2969 guest reviews, Very Good

Property Description

Historic hotel built in 1859 across the street from the Alamo. There is the original historic, antique wing. Rooms have antique furnishings, keeping the integrity of the Victorian era. There are two more newer wings, where rooms have more modern, contemporary decor.

What you need to know

Location – Constructed in 1859, the Menger Hotel is about as close as you can get to the Alamo, the San Antonio Riverwalk, and Rivercenter Mall. Walk two blocks, and you’ll be at the Henry B. Gonzalez Convention Center. Over the years, this elegant five-story hotel welcomed such famous guests at Theodore Roosevelt, Mae West, Babe Ruth, and Mount Rushmore sculptor Gutzon Borglum, as well as numerous others.

Hotel Features – The Menger Hotel is a 100 percent non-smoking property, whose 316 guest rooms boast historic charm and contemporary comfort. Choose from several different room styles when making a reservation here, and bring your swimsuit—the hotel is home to San Antonio’s largest heated swimming pool. A fitness room, Jacuzzi, and the on-site, full-service Alamo Plaza Spa mean guests can truly relax without even leaving the hotel premises. For your dining pleasure, the locally renowned Colonial Room Restaurant and the Menger Bar are also on-site.

Perks & Amenities – Even pets can enjoy the comfort and luxury of the Menger Hotel, for a fee of $50. Room service is available 24 hours a day, and valet parking is also offered to hotel guests. The main lobby and all guest rooms offer high-speed Internet access at no extra charge, and the business center is open from 5 a.m. to 12 a.m. for business travelers.

Expert Tip – Choose the Menger Hotel for your upcoming special event or meeting. The exquisite Plaza Ballroom can hold up to 750 people. The hotel’s food & beverage department will work with you to develop the menu you desire, and hotel staff will ensure that you have the proper equipment so your event goes off without a hitch. Special packages are available to those who select the Menger for their next big event.
