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

Selected this hotel based on tripadvisor reviews. Found the hotel valet to be a huge asset to the hotel. They were always available and approachable for basic questions. Hotel was fine, nothing extravagant. Great hotel for conducting business in the downtown area. Great deal of restaurants within walking distance. Breakfast was fine, each time I went all seats were full... More

What a cool hotel. The lobby has an sheik, retro style vibe and the rooms are spacious. They offer complementary wine during a happy hour in the evening as well as breakfast and even milk and cookies at 8pm! Little things like this make me smile! Restaurants within walking distance. Coffee maker in the room and very comfortable pillows. Loved... More

Found Hotel based on the Tripadvisor reviews. Spend the last four nights of our two week Texas trip here. Excellent hotel and indeed a recommendation worthy. We did not have an issue with the housekeeping (ours was the same lady during the stay and worked wonders) as i saw in another review. Other staff was very helpful too and always... More

Dear Coert d, It's great to hear feedback from our guests! Without your valuable insights into what's working and what isn't, we wouldn't be able to bring such world-class service to our guests. We're thrilled you enjoyed your room, our staff, and amazing housekeeping. Thank you for noting your experience with our wifi and breakfast; we will continue to improve.... More

I have stayed in quite a few hotels and this one is by far the most friendly and helpful. I still have one more night and just got back from supper using their free shuttle....they take you within three miles and when you are finished you call them and they come pick you up. Their breakfast is very good nothing... More

A few friends and I did a pub walk in downtown Houston. We did not want to drink and drive so we got a room and enjoyed it. The room was clean and comfortable. Parking was easy valet. This is a great hotel and the pool area is amazing. It was cold so we did not take advantage of it.... More

I visit Houston once a year on business and tried the Magnolia for the first time recently. It's smaller and more personal than other downtown hotels I have stayed in. All the staff were friendly and helpful and a good varied breakfast was included in the room rate. I'll choose the Magnolia again next time.

The Magnolia has exceeded our expectations. It has a beautiful decor, large comfortable rooms, and a welcoming staff. If you've read my other reviews, you'll know that I am a budget conscious traveler. I selected the Magnolia for the free breakfast, free wifi, and reasonable parking rates. The double room is very large, the beds are comfortable, and it has... More

As always, the Magnolia Houston delivers outstanding service. The hotel is exceptional. As a result, we will host the rehearsal dinner for our son's wedding at the Magnolia. Their commitment to quality, service and luxury is impeccable.
