Historic, Century Old Hotel in San Antonio Nov 24, 2010
Mark's brother took as on a short tour of the Menger Hotel. We did not stay at this hotel as we had a place to stay during out visit. However, James was eager to show as this hotel because it has a history. Considered the vault of vanquished spirits, it was built in 1959. I must say I was impressed just walking through the main entrance to the lobby. The grand space reminded me of grand ballrooms of old. Located in downtown San Antonio just a few yards from The Alamo, the Menger Hotel is over a century old and still impressive. I was interested in the history of this hotel. I understood it was graced with the presence of historic figures like Theodore Roosevelt and Sara Bernhardt.

The hotel has more than three hundred rooms and is considered a landmark in San Antonio. The hotel could pass a museum, not with all the historic artifacts inside it. The architecture is quite impressive for having been built in the 1800s. I should like to have the opportunity of actually staying at the hotel in the future.

If not to stay at the hotel, I highly recommend you visit the hotel for it's history and great artifacts.
