The hotel is very nice and clean, good rooms and friendly staff. The meeting rooms are set up well and how can you beat complimentary breakfast and happy hour. Who does that? The location is downtown so it a great place on Louisiana st if your meetings are near there.

We had the junior suite (king) which was spacious with a kitchenette. It had a small frig, 2 stove top burners, toaster, and coffee maker. The problem was there were only glasses and coffee cups, no plates, pans, or utensils. Didn't call about this so don't know if they would deliver something to room when asked or not. Breakfast was...

We stayed on a Saturday night to see an Astro's baseball game and couldn't have picked a better place. Check-in was quick and easy and the room was great. The bar/restaurant area is large enough for the crowds after the game and for breakfast. The free hot buffet breakfast is worthy of any diner you could go to. Highly recommend... More

I would say this is arguably the best hotel in Houston. I have stayed here twice, and both times it was awesome. I really don't want to stay anywhere else! To start, check in was such an easy process. It took them seconds to get me headed up to my room. I got cookies and even assistance with my bags... More

Nice situation. Prices are high like everywhere downtown. The rooms are spacious but not design at all, like the hotel. Almost kitch. But, but... the pool on the rooftop is really THE plus of this hotel. It worths the hotel.

The Magnolia is an amazing hotel. Though I could not afford it for my 8/16/15 wedding, I was happy to use it for my host hotel. Kiana and the staff were amazing. The suites were beautiful and it's right in the heart of downtown. We all will be back!

I was booked here by my company and initially was not looking forward to it... Upon checking in I was shocked! Awesome hotel and atmosphere and great amenities! Breakfast, drinks, and milk and cookies at night! The rooms were very spacious and beds were very comfortable. Quiet and comfortable all around! Would stay here again!

Central downtown location. Only a couple of blocks to theatres and ballpark. Service is excellent from valet to front desk to housekeeping. Rooms are clean and nicely appointed, updated. There is a skyscraper being built across the street on Fannin St. They start work early during the week! They also have local car service to get you around downtown area.... More

Always a great place to stay when in Houston on business. It's close to our corporate office which is within walking distance. The food in the lounge is good too. The fitness room has lots of equipment (treadmills, weights, ellipticals). Rooms are good size and very comfortable.

I stayed here for 2 nights earlier this month for business purposes. It ticks every box one would need in this regard: reasonably priced, free wifi, free breakfast, central location, efficient service.
