Expert Reviews
In the late 19th century, no one who was anyone would consider staying anywhere but the Menger, which opened its doors in 1859 and has never closed them.
You'll be the envy of many an overheated tourist strolling immediately across the street from the entrance to the Alamo into the cool lobby and up to your room.

The lovely three-story Victorian lobby is decorated with antiques, the Menger Bar is a legendary San Antonio tavern, and the hotel is reputedly home to numerous ghosts.
