Clean, modern, and they have free cookies and milk from 8:30 - 10:30 every night. What more can you ask for? The staff was friendly, the room was very spacious and clean, the lobby was very chic and the free breakfast was a great added bonus.

I stayed here December 2014 and was so impressed with the location and amenities for the price. I booked directly through the hotel for 89/night. The staff was great and I would totally recommend this hotel.

While we love all sites that send people our way, we're very fond of our own, so thanks. Sounds like you got a screaming deal and now you have to promise us... More

Wonderful hotel. Great rooms and staff, would definitely stay there again! However, the lounge and restaurant service was quite disappointing. Expensive for very bad service! Would plan on eating elsewhere if I stay there again.

Great staff, beautiful location. Complimentary happy hour, cookies (night), and breakfast until 11AM. Would stay with friends, sig. other, or family. Also centrally located downtown. The hotel just has a great ambiance from the moment you enter!

Annie M Well, let's see if we can summarize. Great staff + great location + happy hour + cookies + breakfast = MAGNOLIA! We never could have summed it up that well. Thanks so much. Coming from a Senior Reviewer, that means the world to us... Come on back soon! We'll see if we can repeat that again. Mike More

Very good location and nice rooms.We didn't use the valet service, but there is an overnight garage less then a half block from the hotel.Helpful staff with good knowledge of the area.Recent renovation to the hotel look very clean and modernized while still having a classical hotel feel.

This hotel is very nice, without being too snooty. The front desk staff was pleasant and helpful at check-in and with any questions that came up during our stay. The morning breakfast was limited to pastries and fruit but it was very nice and the staff was also very pleasant. The room was nice, roomy and well appointed. The bed... More

Loved this place. Everyone was super friendly and they knew me and my room number from check in until I left. Needs a mini fridge and soda vending but everything else was perfect! Enjoyed lunch one day and closed the bar another and the customer service never wavered. Room was always clean and toiletries were delightful. Loved the decor and... More

We chose this hotel because it was pet friendly and had a value price. Never stayed with the chain before. Extremely pleased with how modern, clean and up to date the lobby areas and rooms were. We would definitely choose it again next time we are in the city.

Magnolia is a charming historical structure with beautiful vintage detailing, that has been remodeled keeping the character of the old and adding a modern twist with the furnishings, works beautifully. Room was a free upgrade to a suite, very comfortable and spacious, as well as affordable. Being an older hotel, bath was a little small but clean and well appointed.... More
