Menger Hotel Review

Since its 1859 opening, the Menger has lodged, among others, Robert E. Lee, Ulysses S. Grant, Theodore Roosevelt, Oscar Wilde, Sarah Bernhardt, Roy Rogers, and Dale Evans. 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. Balcony rooms overlook the Alamo. Inside, the hotel has a three-story Victorian lobby, sunny dining room, flowered courtyard, and four-poster beds (in the older section). Menger's famous bar, built in 1887, is styled after the House of Lords Pub in London.

    Good enough for the President, Good enough for me

    Stayed on the side that was not haunted! Appearaed the new side has better AC. Good location as we were weary of the noise and drunks at hotels on the Riverwalk. Being close to an ice cream place, 5 feet from the front door not a bad way to go. Next door to Alamo but the crowds are no problem, great shopping at the mall next door. Restaurant not recommended.
