204 Alamo Plaza, one of the “must see” places in San Antonio. This
historic landmark hotel is located next door to the Alamo. The Menger’s
special aura may be traced to this hotel’s role as host to some of the
most important and colorful people of the past. “O’Henry” favored the
hotel and included it in several of his works. General Robert E. Lee
rode his horse, Traveler, into the lobby. General Ulysses S. Grant
tipped a few at the Menger Bar. President Eisenhower enjoyed strolling
the gardens. It was the San Antonio home of Sarah Bernhardt, Judge Roy
Bean’s Lilly Langtry, and movie star Mae West. In the 19th century wing,
there are unique Victorian-style lodging rooms that have been preserved
and are available by special request. The fabulous Menger Bar is where
Teddy Roosevelt recruited his Rough Riders for the Spanish-American War.
Things to do in San Antonio
Experience San Antonio's diverse culture of authentic foods, music and art represented by Old Mexico, the Wild West Native America, Germany, Africa and the Deep South. The host hotel is just a stone throw away from the Alamo. The Riverwalk provides the visitor a cool shady haven to take a leisurely stroll along the river's edge where you will find vendors, boutiques, and nightclubs or just relax in a peaceful and quiet corner in a park like setting. The narrated trolley's or horse-drawn carriages provide a relaxing yet informative atmosphere to take in San Antonio's culture, history, and charm. Take time to visit the Alamo cruise down the beautiful Riverwalk on a barge or take a leisurely stroll through Hemisfair Park to the Institute of Texan Cultures (lots of walking) or explore the Guadalupe Cultural Center (10 minute Taxi) and Mexican Cultural Institute. Spend time at Market Square for a taste of old Mexico, offering a variety of food and more than 50 specialty shops. Browse La Villita, San Antonio's oldest surviving settlement, dating from the 1750's, to view the artists and craftsmen, shops, and restaurants. Rich in culture, San Antonio is home to a remarkably diverse community. Cuisine, as well as the art and cultural events in San Antonio are beautiful reflections of this diversity. Come for the conference, but stay for the fun.
