I stayed at this hotel for work and was constantly surprised by this upscale downtown hotel in Houston. They provided me with the state/military rate, free wonderful breakfast, managers happy hour with free alcohol (the more people there the longer they stay open), free milk and cookies bar at night, free wi-fi and an amazing view of the downtown skyline...

First thing that happened is we got into a room and the AC wasn't cooling properly we called for service and the guy came opened up the vents you could feel more air blowing just didn't feel cool. Eventually we had to change rooms. Pain in the rear to have to do this because waiting the first call, then changing... More

my family and I stayed here over the 4th of July weekend. Surprisingly they were very reasonably priced. The staff (including the valet) were very friendly, helpful and polite. Always greeted with a smile. The atmosphere of the hotel was fresh and welcoming. We got there early and they were able to check us in early. They let us check... More

Hotel is great and only one block from my client. Best hotel in downtown Houston, can't beat the value. Awesome breakfast buffet, the best I've ever encountered. Two free happy hour drinks. Cookie buffet at night. Doesn't get any better.

It is a cute little boutique hotel, but there were certainly problems: 1) Front desk person was somewhat indifferent to my presence (ok, i can deal with that, not ideal from a customer service standpoint but it certainly didn't ruin my stay) 2) Active construction site next to the hotel -- certainly not their fault -- but it would have...

Had to arrange a small meeting with some potential business partners and the hotel was perfect for my purpose. Hotel is beautiful, and meeting rooms are spacious and affordable, so we were able to create a very good impression looking very professional without spending a fortune. Rooms were also really nicely decorated with big bathrooms and one of the best... More

We were in Houston to see an Astros baseball game and stayed at the Magnolia. It was a short walk to the game. They had free breakfast with bacon, eggs, sausage, and fresh fruit and coffee as well as happy hour later in the day. Very nice hotel and we would definitely stay here again

What a great home base for a ball game! The Magnolia Hotel in Houston is a quick walk, train ride or drive from Minute Maid Park where the Astros play. It's also surrounded by lots of downtown dining choices and an easy drive from other Houston attractions like the Museum District. The hotel itself is a pleasure, from the quick... More

My family and I recently stayed at the Magnolia for a Garth Brooks concert at the Toyota Center. We picked the hotel because of the location. Glad we did. We had never stayed at a Magnolia hotel and will again. It was a bit crowded with the Astros playing at home down the street and the concert, but the staff... More
