We took our latest kid free stay-cation here after finding our usual Icon Hotel around the corner booked. Pleasant enough hotel with nicely decked out rooms, good views and all-round decor but lacking a little charm with its bar and restaurant areas which were on a par with big chains offerings and did nothing to tempt us to stay for...

My husband and I hosted our Wedding at the Magnolia Hotel on March 28, 2015. The venue was absolutely amazing. We could not have chosen a better place to be married. Lauren our wedding sales manager was amazing and so patient with all the questions and last minute changes that I made to the menu etc. Our guests were blown... More

Beautiful, spacious and quiet room in a very nice hotel. Stayed for a wedding in downtown Houston. Comfortable spaces to visit with friends in the lobby and several places nearby to eat. The breakfast was very good with many choices and a large room for our group to sit and enjoy. It is valet only parking which is the only... More

The staff were very friendly and helpful. The environment is awesome and we love staying here whenever we get the chance. My family enjoys all the comforts they offer and what can I say but yum, yum for the free breakfast, Cookie & Milk and evening reception.

I’d like to compliment your on-site Manager, Adam for the excellent service he provided me ] this past weekend for our 15 year anniversary. Because of his exceptional customer service, we even added an extra night to our stay. Adam upgraded our room selection and also told us about local shopping areas and places to visit while we visited Houston.... More

We live in Houston, but my husband and I were looking for a nice hotel to spend some alone time (we have a toddler). This hotel made us feel like we were on a real vacation. The rooftop hot tub was very nice, but a little too hot for my taste. I wish we could have stayed longer. We will... More

My wife and I stayed here recently for a quick weekend getaway in Houston. Easy walking distance to the theaters or to Minute Maid Park. Great place to stay if you are going to an Astros game. Lots of restaurants and bars in the area. Close to Discovery Green and the convention center. Its close enough to walk to Houston... More

We stayed here for 2 nights prior to a cruise. I (incorrectly) assumed that 'downtown' would be a bustling area with lots to do. The area is like a post apocalyptic ghost town with absolutely nothing to do- just the odd bar or restaurant. The hotel itself is lovely and all of the free touches are really great. The rooms...

My husband and I stayed at the Magnolia during Spring Break and had a great time. The hotel was very classy and modern. Our room was clean and very spacious. All the little extras were amazing. There was a daily breakfast, happy hour and cookies and milk. The roof pool had an awesome view, but was very small. The hotel... More

Good warm vibes, smaller hotel with good value. Does not have the best food choices, however is adequate and within walkable distance to many other choices of cuisines. Also, the bathroom came with nice deep tub for soaking and relaxing. Rooftop pool is not worth dreaming about, is only 3 feet deep and would bore a child within minutes. Great... More
