    A beautiful wedding experience at the Menger Hotel

    We were very surprised that a hotel as beautiful as the Menger Hotel could be so affordable for a wedding. Zara Marrero helped manage the wedding through multiple changes due to the corona virus. The flexibility Menger and Zara demonstrated was amazing. The hotel staff were all friendly and very accommodating to all our requests.
