The history is unique in it's history. It was great until trying to sleep. The walls are thin and you hear your neighbors talk and flush. We needed to play 2 white noise apps to try to drown out the nosie enough to sleep.

Love this place, great staff and so close to everything! Did not like that there was no heat and room was 65 degree. The bath room needs some repair to the Tub. Not towel racks. On the positive very quiet and it is very charming atmosphere hotel.

Quaint historic hotel. There was a faint smell of tobacco smoke in halls. Tight quarters but overall good room and overlooked Alamo.

This historic hotel is right next to the Alamo, so it's right in the middle of the downtown action. Lots of restaurants and shopping close by. Rivercenter Mall wraps around the Menger on two sides. The Christmas tree in the original lobby is big and beautiful. Our room in the old section was cozy, clean, and had a view of the plaza and the lighted carriages. Hope to stay here again soon!

Really liked the location and the older ambience of the lobby and general atmosphere of the hotel. Wait staff in restaurant area VERY friendly and helpful! Walking easy to tourist areas! Room was a good size, BUT: I Was VERY disappointed in bed size, not easy to control room temperatures (took 2 1/2 days to adjust!) no refrigerator, no blankets, awkward arrangement of bathroom fixtures!

Stayed in the old section, thoroughly enjoyed the antique room decor and history. On the negative side felt parking was on the expensive side.

Loved the victorian king trip down memory lane. View of mall alley, no worries bopping around town. Walk across street to Alamo. Recommend valet at Menger Hotel $30 with tax, in and out convenience with security; Rivercenter Mall $25 for 24 hours, $30 lost ticket - not as safe, no in and out and tow baggage.
