The Magnolia is a downtown hotel and, I imagine, mostly used by business travelers, but it's a good hotel for families, too. Our room was comfortable, clean, and large, and the construction going on across the way was, for us, an asset as the kids enjoyed watching it. Breakfast was ordinary but free and ample. The rooftop pool was a... More

I stayed here for a conference. I must say, that check in was a bit difficult, but beyond that, everything is great! Excellent hot breakfast included, and yummy bedtime cookies & milk each night. The shuttle drivers are very friendly and helpful as well. The rooms are beautiful & impeccable, with excellent housekeeping, and THE most comfortable hotel beds &... More

Room was very clean upon arrival, housekeeping was not spectacular after check in though , room was nice and cold. bed was comfortable and they had varying types of pillows. Service at front desk was good but they were 30 minutes late on my wake up call. I was extremely disappointed in the room service food choices and the quality... More

Lovely hotel with nice atmosphere. Delicious food in the Lounge. Clean rooms and spacious. The construction across the street starts early -- 5:30 a.m. which was irritating, but not within the control of the hotel. The fitness center needs to be bigger and better air conditioned.

The moment I walked into the Magnolia I was amazed by the lobby and the ambiance. Great comfortable feel with a touch of elegance. The rooms were very accommodating. The bartender (male) was very personal and made the bar what it was. Everything was great throughout the stay.

This was our first stay at the Magnolia Hotel in Houston but certainly will NOT be our last. Beautiful, great service, excellent location . . . it was everything we hoped for an more!! We were just minutes away from the museum district, Toyota Center, plenty of places to eat, and other Houston hot spots. Loved it!!

Stayed at the Magnolia for four nights and loved it! Was offered a spacious room with a decent view but what really made it special was the proximity to some great eateries, most notably the Flying Saucer (two blocks) with an amazing beer selection and great food, Molly's Pub (right around the corner-best Reuben Sandwhiches ever!) and a happy hour...

My family and I stayed one night and the hotel was very nice and clean. Beautifully decorated and great location. Parking can be tricky and the elevators are small. The rooms are nice. The roof top pool and hot tub offer a spectacular view. Will definitely be back.

Nice room, good buffet breakfast, and decent gym (apart from the rowing machine). Overall it was a good choice, although the location is downtown, which I found somewhat challenging as a single female traveller. Wanting to pick up a few grocery items, I asked at reception and was directed to the cafe immediately adjacent (limited and expensive). I then found... More

This hotel is a little known downtown secret it seems. The prices are very reasonable and you are in walking distance from Minute Maid Park, Vic and Anthony's Steakhouse and anywhere else in the theater district. It has a very luxurious and modern feel and is very clean. The only thing that is not great is the valet parking. It's... More
