Stayed here one night before moving to another property in the Galleria area. This is a smaller property (as supposed to large chains) with a boutique feel to it. Front desk personnel, valet parking and bell men were friendly and knowledgeable. Rooms are not large but nicely appointed. Best perk is the hotel's free breakfast buffet, evening happy hour/free wine... More

I chose this hotel because I had stayed at the Dallas location twice and enjoyed both of those stays. This classic structure has been renovated to create a cozy vibe. My mother and I stayed in an executive suite on the twenty-second floor. Our room was spacious and comfortable. We spent most days outside of our suite attending meetings. On... More

We do you baseball trip every year and this year we went to Houston. I picked Magnolia first because of its proximity to Minute Maid park. There are closer hotels, but I prefer to avoid the big chains whenever possible. Regardless, the ballpark was only only 5 minute walk. It was 100 degrees in the shade. Also, Houston's closed.

I was amazed at how disappointing this hotel was. I spend about 50 nights a year in hotels, and this one failed more or less across the board. The loaner phone charger (an impressive octopus) did not have an updated I phone charger, despite staff's guarantees. The wifi did not work. I spent 45 minutes talking to the 1-800 number... More

We booked the Magnolia for a 3 night stay in Houston and chose it over the Icon due to price but in hindsight we should have paid the extra and stayed at the Icon! The staff were friendly and the location of the hotel is good but everything else needs a bit of a lift. We had to move rooms... More

Location is great! I always look forward to staying there on business because the breakfast is good, happy hour is great, staff is friendly and the room is always beautiful. The construction is not great around the hotel right now but other than that it was a great stay!

I was awakened by the noise of construction workers yelling and trucks at 4:30 a.m. due to the construction site across the street from the hotel. Called the front desk at 5:30 a.m., told them about the noise and asked where I could get a cup of coffee, so early in the morning, since I was not able to sleep.... More

We've stayed quite a few times for "date night" and it's always a great experience! You can't beat the location and the extra's. They also have a nice suburban that will drive you around downtown and a great breakfast! Make sure to join the email list for great deals!

Magnolia was a very nice treat amongst a busy downtown. Rooms are clean, service is great, and nice surprises like milk/cookies and a yummy breakfast made it the perfect place. There are so many great restaurants to walk to from this location as well.
