“Never a disappointment!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 19, 2013

Fabulous boutique hotel that has been renovated with class. The evening reception is a nice kick off to a night - out. (Never seem to make it back in time for the hot cookies and milk though.) The breakfast is great, but if you miss it, the Iron Cactus next door (within walking distance) has a bottomless mimosa brunch!

Room Tip: Corner suites are the best, plenty of natural light and the higher up the better!

My second business stay at the Magnolia. The Magnolia is my favorite hotel! Breakfast buffet is delicious, evening reception is a relaxing way to end the workday, and warm, fresh-baked cookies are a friendly, home-like touch without the clean-up. The rooms have great character where closets are spacious, furniture of excellent quality, and the ventilation is excellent.

My son was married in Dallas this past weekend. Our entire family visited the Magnolia for two nights. The hotel staff was exceptional and friendly. I would recommend this hotel to anyone needing to stay in Dallas.

The front staff was very professional and courteous. I was able to check in early and had no issues checking in or out.

The bell hops and valet personel were awesome. Never did I hear the word no. They were helpful, courteous and prompt. We had a LOT of luggage, as our suite was used for the young men in the wedding party to get ready in and as our hospitality suite for arriving family members. They took care of loading and unloading all.

The transportation shuttle was also very friendly, helpful and prompt. I needed to take my mother down the street (less than one block) for a luncheon. She is in a walker and they arranged for her transportation there. They also took us to and from the venue for the rehearsal and the wedding. We never had to wait; which seems impossible since there was also another wedding and convention in the area that weekend.

The rooms were very clean and comfortable. Plenty of towells. We had a suite that included a full kitchen with a full size refrigerator, freezer, oven range and dishwasher.

The cookies and milk were an awesome end to a busy day. The cookies were served warm with chocolate milk and white milk.

We even had an impromptu "after" wedding party in the lounge and it was also nice.

The breakfast buffet was nice and hot also. Scrambled eggs, sausage, waffles/french toast, bread, fruit, juice and coffee.

The hotel was also very clean.

Overall, I would stay here again. I believe it would be a great place to stay for a romantic weekend or quick getaway.

We stayed here for a couple of days in early February, 2013. Very nice hotel right in the middle of the action in Dallas. Excellent breakfast buffet and the cookies and milk in the evening was a nice touch.

Room was a bit on the small side, but nicely appointed. The internet connection was excellent... very high speed downloads! The bed was very comfortable. The air conditioning wasn't working when we arrived but after a call to the desk, it was fixed within the hour.

We were a bit disappointed that we didn't get the type of room that we requested: on a higher floor with a view. Since we had reserved the room 5 months in advance, we expected that we would get what we asked for. According to the fellow on the front desk, everyone had reserved that far ahead. Except for this small thing, we were very happy with our stay.

Parking was a bit pricey and was valet only, but we just left our rental car there for the duration of our stay. Valet and doorman, etc. were very friendly and personable. There's a smoking area near valet and we got to interact with them frequently.

Lots of things were within walking distance, so we had no need of our car. It seemed that the hotel catered mostly to business type people, but maybe that's just Dallas. :)

We have stayed at the Magnolia on 3 occassions. All weekend stays where we took advantage of being in great downtown Dallas. The accomodatoins are very good, the breakfast buffet and evening events at the bar, all good. We enjoy it and know we will be back in the future.
One of our favorite things is the location. With the Iron Cactus, several other restaurants and small clubs nearby we find it a delight to be downtown. Recommend it to you as well. Good value, good stay, and great locatoins.

Room Tip: Be sure to ask for corner room or the best room they can offer. All are good, but some are better.

They offer free breakfast, free drinks after work, and free milk and cookies in the evening. You can't really go wrong with that! I was upgraded to a suite out of the blue. It was extremely spacious, with a kitchen, large bathroom, and bedroom. I would definitely recommend this hotel...

I live in the DFW metroplex and had in worked in downtown Dallas for a while a few years back and one of my business associates stayed at the Magnolia over a 3-4 month timeframe as he worked with me on a project. I remember him speaking quite highly of this place since. He stated that it was truly a nice place for all types of guests. Usually when clients or fellow co-workers were in town, the Magnolia was NO WHERE on our list of recommendations for them, simply because it just didn't stand out in our minds OR on the list of "NICE" places to stay here in Dallas. Especially when you have so many other choices downtown. That is until he raved about it!! He raved about the rooms, the fact that most were small, but elegantly classy. He loved their complimentary evening cocktails and fresh baked cookies. Not to mention he made us green with envy when he described the nightlife atmosphere and presentation of the interior of the hotel.

So....years later, I decided to select this hotel as my NYE party place and I am glad I did! Even though it was 3-4 years ago since the recommendation was made, they obviously have maintained their quality.
1. The foyer area is breathtaking.
2. The architecture of the building near the elevators is magnificent.
3. The game room/bar area is eclectic.
4. The complimentary breakfast was average, but nice.
5. The LOCATION is GRAND. In walking distance of everything!!! (Neiman Marcus around the corner, Restaurants and most importantly the New Year's Eve EVENTS.
6. Very nice tub/shower. Looks like the entire room was recently remodeled with all NEW bathroom fixtures. The water in the shower is POWERFUL and got Extremely HOT…..FAST!
We stayed in a deluxe suite (kitchenette/separate living room/separate bedroom). The Room was a tad bit small. The walk in closet was just about as big as the room (major plus for extended stay travelers, I suppose). The Bed was SOOOO COMFORTABLE, Loved the duvet and extra blankets that were already on the bed.
All in All, my husband and I brought 2013 in with a BANG and THIS HOTEL. This Hotel is NOW on my list of personal places to stay in the metroplex. It’s funny how you live somewhere so long and never appreciate or utilize some of the small gems in your own back yard. Hope this helps any locals!

Room Tip: The suites were WORTH IT the extra money!
