The Menger Hotel | Venue Hunt Monday

Established in 1859, The Menger Hotel has grown into one of San Antonio's most historic locations as well as a brides' favorite wedding venue for generations. From the moment guests walk inside the hotel’s grand three-story lobby, they're surrounded by awe-inspiring columns and collections of antique clocks, pianos, artwork, and furnishings that remain true to the building's original Victorian architecture while still giving a contemporary feel that today's brides adore.

Presidents, playwrights, Olympians, and Hollywood icons have strolled the halls of The Menger throughout the years—but here's why it's the perfect location for modern lovebirds to tie the knot.

The architecture. The Menger is known for its classic Victorian architecture crafted by four of the Alamo City's most important architects of the 19th and 20th centuries. Originally only a 50-room hotel built next door to Texas' first brewery, the Menger now boasts 316 contemporary guestrooms, several of which include historical significance as well as some with balcony views of the Alamo, Alamo Plaza, and garden. Luxury suites include exquisite 12-foot ceilings, floor-to-ceiling windows, and sitting rooms. And The Menger's second-story “wedding balcony” overlooking the garden is a favorite spot for newlyweds-to-be to share a romantic moment.

The location. Neighboring the Alamo and Rivercenter Mall, The Menger Hotel is truly in the heart of downtown San Antonio surrounded by dozens of quality restaurants, bars, museums, and entertainment—perfect for couples and their guests.

The history. Rumor has it that The Menger is popular among ghosts as well as brides and grooms. Who knows, maybe Teddy Roosevelt will make an appearance at your wedding! Ghost stories aside, The Menger has been a hotspot for the likes of Babe Ruth, Mae West, General Sam Houston, and Texas titans of industry, commerce, and politics. President Roosevelt recruited his famous Rough Riders cavalry brigade in the epicenter of the hotel, The Menger Bar—one of the top 10 most historic bars in the United States.
