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.

Overall Score4.0/ 5
Our only complaint was that our room was a little warm, could not get the A/C to com on so we had to open a window. Also my wife was a little disappointed she didn't see any ghosts.

"Thank You!"
Overall Score5.0/ 5
We love staying at our favorite hotel downtown and this time was no exception. The only suggestion we have is the pillows were super small and we had to request like four extra pillows. The bed was pretty hard but we still slept decent. Other than that we loved it and will for sure be back soon! Merry Christmas to you and your staff!
