They need to keep the chillers on because it gets warm very quickly if they turn it off too early.

This is a known haunted hotel, with ghost tours available. I would not have stayed here with my daughter knowing that information. However it is very nice, and a great location.

Beautiful facilities. Attentive staff. Comfy bed. Erratic water temperature (surpruse hot and cold bursts). Great location. Wonderful history and good food.

Why would you stay anywhere else.
Stayed for two nights recently and truly enjoyed my stay. This is my second time at the Menger and would not stay anywhere else if returning to San Antonio.
