5 Reasons to choose the menger

You love art, architecture and antiques

Throughout the hotel, you’ll find museum-worthy art and architecture, as well as fascinating vintage photos that trace our storied history. Amid the Victorian architecture and 19th century elegance, delight in the Spanish courtyard and in the Menger Bar, an exact replica of London’s House of Lords Pub.

You believe location is everything

The Menger is located directly on Alamo Plaza and adjacent to Rivercenter Mall and San Antonio’s celebrated Riverwalk. In other words, you’re steps from the city’s best shopping, dining and entertainment.

You're not afraid of ghosts

The Menger’s otherworldly guests are a colorful and delightfully polite group. They include a Confederate soldier, a charming man in a top hat, a Spaniard, a man in buckskin and an attentive chambermaid.

You love history

The oldest continuously operating hotel west of the Mississippi, The Menger traces its history to William Menger, who opened the Menger Brewery in 1855 (and thus introduced beer to San Antonio) and followed it with the hotel in 1859.

You've got a sweet tooth

Fine dining is a long tradition at The Menger, but no trip to our landmark hotel is complete without a serving of Mango Ice Cream in the Colonial Dining Room. It’s been on the menu for more than a hundred years.

“Our Family Goto Place for San Antonio”
The Menger is our favorite place to stay in the River Walk. A fantastic historical hotel right across from the Alamo with a great Dining room and all around service. It is also only steps to the River Walk. After 3 visits, we have never been let down! Simply the best San Antonio has to offer that is both Historic and authentic!
"Great location, quaint decor"
The Menger Hotel has a super location, very close to The Alamo, river walkways, and shopping. The room was very nicely decorated. The lobby and public areas had many interesting exhibits on the history of San Antonio.
"Historic Hotel In the Perfect Location"
We stayed in the new wing which means we had a large balcony overlooking the pool. The rooms are very large, have all of the amenities one needs and the hotel's location cannot be beat! Don't pass up the outstanding breakfast buffet that is very reasonably priced. The staff are very friendly and helpful. We'll be back!!
“Historic accommodations”
Historic, non-conventional hotel with excellent staff, accommodations and charm. I stay at many hotels every year and this experience was pleasantly unique. Excellent location for San Antonio tourist activities.
