San Antonio TX: Menger or Crockett Hotel?

Jump to last reply

My husband and I will be attending a dance convention at the Henry B. Gonzales Center in San Antonio in July and will be spending 5 nights in a hotel (though probably lot a lot of time, other than sleeping, in the hotel). I'm debating between the Menger and Crockett hotels and would appreciate advice about which might be a better choice. Here are the relevant parameters as I see them:

Menger Hotel – The official convention hotel. Convention rate is $99/nt. Rooms do not have refrigerators; they could supply one for $25, which makes the total cost identical to the Crockett (but the Crockett provides breakfast and Menger doesn't). Has a pool. Perhaps a tad closer to the convention center.,

Crockett Hotel – I was able to get a rate of $104 online; this is considerably below other rates I’ve seen for this property. (I’ve made a reservation but can cancel it.) Continental breakfast is included. Says it has a pool, but it appears that it is the case that you go across the street to the Menger to use their pool. (I would probably, at most, go swimming once.) Perhaps a tad further from the convention center.

Thanks in advance for your assistance.
