The Menger Hotel in downtown San Antonio, Texas was established in 1859, just 23 years after the Battle of the Alamo. Speaking of the Alamo, the Menger Hotel is right next door to this famous mission. Both sites are home to murder and mayhem, and the Menger is believed (by ghost enthusiasts and innocent and not-so-innocent guests alike) to be haunted by several ghosts, including Teddy Roosevelt, who still likes to partake at the bar every now and then. A haunted hotel wouldn’t be complete without a creepy, deserted staircase. Although, to be on the safe side, you might want to make sure that staircase really is deserted before you decide to ascend to your suite for the long, terrifying night ahead.
Take a spectral tour of this famous hotel and judge its spookiness for yourself.
