    It was our first time trying the breakfast buffet at the colonial and it was delicious! The room was beautiful. This was our third time staying with y'all and my only complaint is that each time we have had to walk a mile long hallway to get to our room. Our rooms are always nice though.

    A very long walk to our room each of the three times we have stayed. It did not kill us though.

    We were there for our honeymoon and the staff surprised us with a bottle of champagne for us when they found out. My husband’s parents also had their honeymoon at the Menger in 1942 so it was very sentimental staying there.

    Nothing could have been improved upon. The staff was excellent, the accommodations were wonderful and the entire trip was fantastic.

    Beautiful lobby area.

    The wood sleigh bed creaked noisily. There isn’t a comfortable reading chair. The toilet is unusually noisy; I could hear the next door room’s.

From there, get on board bus line 301 heading towards St Paul Square and get off 4 stops later at the Alamo Plaza in Front of 215 1/2 bus stop. The hotel will then be a 2min walk away, and the full trip will take around 50min.
