Start with Samantha at the front desk lying about the hotel being sold out so room upgrades "are not available". Next charging for valet service that is poor at best (45 minute wait to drop off car & 30 minute wait to pick on average). Valet staff arguing about text for valet not being sent. Did not see housekeeping for three days. We emptied our own trash and chased down attendant in hallway to get dry towels. Did not see a pool attendant or restaurant staff ever, at the pool except for snack attendant, however someone on the hotel staff took the time to tell people at pool "it is against the law to bring outside food or alcohol into pool area". This was at 8:30 PM. after the restaurant was closed and no service staff present.

Hotel's Favourite
Very well kept. Beautiful room. Delicious morning coffee. Polite bell persons. Nice clean pool. Comfortable pool chairs. Great historic pictures throughout that made us want to spend a day just going around looking at and reading them.

Jonathan Garza (manager) was very professional and helpful as soon as we got to the hotel. He helped us with valet and made sure we had everything we needed. The hotel itself was very clean and well taken care of. I’d highly recommend going to the menger!
