The Menger Hotel is located next to the Alamo. The hotel was opened in 1858, and was San Antonio's finest hotel for much of the 19th century. It was here that Teddy Roosevelt interviews former soldiers for his fighting force known as the Rough Riders. Later, these same soldiers would defeat the Spanish military forces in Cuba.

This is a classic hotel, and for that reason I am glad I stayed there. But she has seen her better days. She been rode hard and put up wet as they say. Stayed in the Presidential Suite, and the carpets were stained, the wals had chipped paint, and the oriental furnishings seemed out of place in the heart of Texas. The A/C barely worked and we had to go down two floors to find an ice machine that worked. Staff was unbelievably indifferent to any and all requests. In fact, the only two things that made the stay bearable were, the friends I was with, the incredibly comfortable bed, and the breakfasts. This hotel has so much potential, but needs management that understands service! No excuse in this day and age.
