History

The Menger Hotel was constructed in 1859 under the direction of owner William A. Menger and architect John Fries. The original two-story building occupies a prominent location in downtown San Antonio, only 100 yards from the site of the Alamo. This original portion of the hotel has housed personalities such as Theodore Roosevelt, Sidney Lanier, Babe Ruth, Mae West, Robert E. Lee, Ulysses S. Grant, Sarah Bernhardt and Gutzon Borglum—just to name a few. More than 130 years of refinements have created a masterpiece of traditional elegance and atmosphere. The hotel now boasts five stories, 316 rooms and unparalleled amenities.
