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.

Verified Reviews of The Menger Hotel

Below are the verified reviews from guests that we have booked recently:
"Beautiful! Excellent Service"
Overall Score5.0/ 5
My group of 43 really enjoyed our time at the Menger. Great customer service. Much historical memorabilia which my group enjoyed we are a history group. Only suggestion: when we checked out this morning the elevator in the historic side was closed for maintenance (I feel sure it was not working, not just closed for routine maintenance, as that would have been a very bad timing issue). But many of our group did not know there was another elevator on the other side of the hotel so they carried their luggage all the way down the stairs and for many of them that was several floors. Maintenance should have put on their sign that there was another elevator around on the other side. Otherwise everything went smoothly and we had a great experience.

"Menger Hotel is such a Lovely Place."
Overall Score4.0/ 5
The suite known as the Teddy Roosevelt was lovely, but I felt it needed some updating. It would have been nice to have some plastic spoons and a microwave oven for quick reheating and snacks. We had over 60 people in our room at any given time and the room remained very hot. We rectified the problem by asking everyone to close the door and the wooden shutters. The Colonial Room Restaurant had excellent food. Sales was not so good until we bypassed the agent and went to the head of sales who was enthusiastic and fulfilled our needs (i.e. photos of the room we were not able to see on our first trip to San Antonio). The agent just drew a picture. I asked for other things that she said were impossible and again went to her manager and had no problems getting what we needed.

Hello Ellie,Thank you for your review and staying with us at The Menger, we certainly value your comments. I apologize for the heat in the suite and the fact that you did not have utensils. Once again, we thank you for your business and hope you will come back to see us in the future.

"Delightful Experience"
Overall Score4.0/ 5
Our group experienced a wonderful weekend at the historic Manger Hotel on Alamo Plaza in San Antonio. The public spaces, including a beautiful interior garden, are unique and very beautiful. Our banquet was delicious and well-served. The hotel is a very short walk to the Riverwalk with its numerous restaurants and shops. You can even take a leisurely ride on the boats that ply the waters and learn a lot about the history of the city from the knowledgable and charming operators.
