    About

    Location. Noted as a genuine San Antonio, Texas treasure, The Menger Hotel was originally built in 1859 and stands next door to The Alamo. The famed Riverwalk, the Children's Museum, and the Buckhorn Museum are 1 block from the hotel. Within 6 blocks of the hotel are La Villita and Market Square.

    Hotel Features. Chefs at the Colonial Room Restaurant prepare continental cuisine in a white-linen environment. The Menger Bar is a replica of London's House of Lords Pub with cherry paneling and glass cabinets. More than 11,618 square feet of flexible function space accommodates up to 750 guests and includes the Plaza Ballroom, 9 meeting and conference rooms, poolside rooms, and a terrace that overlooks the Menger Court.

    The Menger Hotel's tropical, courtyard garden looks out onto an outdoor pool that is heated during winter months. Onsite restaurants offer poolside services. The Alamo Plaza Spa offers European-style spa treatments including massages, scrubs, facials, and a Finnish sauna. A limited-hour fitness center houses cardiovascular equipment only. Valet parking is available for a surcharge.

    Guestrooms. The 316 guestrooms of The Menger Hotel feature antique or contemporary-style furnishings, high ceilings, and views of the courtyard, the Alamo, and city gardens.
