Reviewed November 17, 2012

Attended a business function downtown and stayed the night at the Magnolia. My second stay in this hotel. Had a magnificent suite with fantastic views of downtown. The room was great including a full kitchen, dining and living areas. Bed was very comfortable and absolutely no outside noise during the night. Staff was very courteous and breakfast from room service was top notch. Highly recommend this hotel and already have to others. Additionally, location is extremely convenient to many venues in the downtown area.

We went to the Paul McCartney concert last night, and although we only live 30 miles away from downtown Houston, my husband didn't want to fight the traffic afterwards (or before), so booked us into the Magnolia for the night.

Boy, am I glad that he did.

It's in easy walking distance to Minute Maid Park, where Sir Paul was playing, and walking was MUCH quicker than driving in the hours preceding the concert, so we just valet parked our vehicle. When we checked in, and when we left, it was obvious that many, many of the clientele were concert attendees.

Afterwards, everyone had a huge buzz from such an outstanding event, and most of us were coming back to the hotel around midnight. Many others would be out partying afterwards. We were worried that things would be very noisy into the small hours, and that we wouldn't be able to sleep.

Not so! We realized that the hallways have been fitted with noise-muffling carpet, etc. We heard NOTHING all night from other guests - we could have been the only ones there.

Our room was beautifully decorated, with super comfy bed, and elegant bathroom. The quality of the bathroom products - shampoo/soaps/lotion, etc. is outstanding. We also loved the garden tubs in the bathroom.

In the morning, we enjoyed their breakfast buffet - truly outstanding. They had bacon, eggs, sausage, a huge variety of breads, including croissants, marble bread, a really tasty banana nut bread type thing, plus waffles, oatmeal, all kinds of cereal, many different varieties of fruit and juice, upscale yoghurt, and possibly other stuff I'm forgetting.

Everything was SPOTLESSLY clean, and the staff were outstanding.

When we left, were able to pick up the newspaper too!

LOVED it!

I was given a choice of two hotels to stay at as a guest at a wedding. I am really glad I chose the Magnolia. The service was incredible - they even drove us to the wedding and picked us up from the reception in their shuttle! The room was very (very!) clean and had everything we needed. They even delivered cookies to the room while we were at the reception. Everything about this hotel is first class. I would highly recommend it!

This hotel is cool. It's in a historical building. Lobby is cool, rooms are nice- not wow. The thing I found odd is how dirty the place was. The halls had food crumbs on them. The bar are was the same. The hotel lobby was awesome but really smelled from the deli out front so the lobby smelled like burning pizza. The furniture in our room was scratched up and looked very worn. The nightstand had dried food on the side next to the chair and ottoman. Perhaps magnolia needs to spend more on housekeeping.

Great service. Great rooms. Lots of nice little perks such as happy hours, a free shuttle service around downtown, breakfast, and milk and cookies. The staff is courteous, knowledgeable and helpful. I will stay here again when I'm in Houston.

Was there for a wedding and reception at the hotel adjacent to Magnolia. Top notch all the way! The bed and linens were very comfortable and the the staff could not have been any friendlier and helpful. I love the fact that they have the free happy hour, the cookies and milk and the great breakfast, all complimentary. I would stay at Magnolia again.

I've stayed at the Magnolia Hotel in Houston, TX prior to this stay and have never been disappointed. The hotel is located in downtown Houston. For this stay, my girlfriends and I were in town for the Color Run! We chose this hotel for the location. We took advantage of the complimentary drinks in the evening and the milk and cookies before bed time! Check in was a breeze, the room was nice. However, the only negative thing about our stay was when we arrived, there was a glass, forks, and napkins outside our room. It was NEVER picked up during our stay which leads me to believe that non of the staff made a clean sweep within the 24 hours we were there. That was disappointing to say the least. Overall, it was a good stay.
