  • Classic hotel
    Fabulous location

    The Menger Hotel is right in the center of everything San Antonio, including the Alamo and River Walk. The hotel itself retains its history but has all of the modern amenities you'd expect. We had a drink in the Menger Bar where Teddy Roosevelt gathered his Rough Riders. You could really feel the history! - DonnaPG
  • History at
    its finest

    Loved our stay here. The hotel was beautiful and with all the history inside, you could spend hours roaming and reading about it all. The bar was just as fun, hard to believe we were drinking in the very spot the rough riders were!! Bullet holes are still there. The spa was amazing… best massage I have ever had! - Tour609123
  • Historic Hotel with
    Fantastic Staff

    The Menger is a historic hotel hotel right next to the Alamo and so close to shopping and the River Walk. The hotel staff could not have been more accommodating and pleasant. If you are planning a trip to San Antonio, this hotel has it all—great location, history, wonderful staff, and a fantastic restaurant on-site! - Marsha P
  • A beautiful place with
    loads of history

    I have been staying at the Menger Hotel for over 40 years and still roam the halls looking at its history. I imagine what it must have been like during the days when "Bet-a-Million" Gates, O. Henry, and Babe Ruth stayed here. What about the Rough Riders being recruited by Teddy Roosevelt to go fight in the Spanish-American War? - Michelle P
  • A Touch
    of Class

    This is a glorious, historic hotel. The lobby is grand and there is much to see and learn… the pictures of San Antonio, the artwork on the walls, and the Roosevelt memorabilia provides a museum-like experience. We ate and drank in the Menger Bar, but the restaurant looked inviting as well. - TeddyDean
