“Great recently remodel property between city center and the ballpark”
Reviewed August 1, 2013 via mobile

The Magnolia has just completed a wonderful remodel. The rooms are large and well appointed and the common areas are updated and hip! The location is convenient to the Astros, Texans, Rockets venues as well as downtown Houston hotspots.

As the title says this is the best hotel in Texas and it's not even a close race. From the extremely friendly valet staff, the gorgeous interior, extremely clean and elegant rooms, to the wonderful desk staff. This hotel actually lives up to it's name and 4 diamond rank.

Room Tip: Best hotel in Texas hands down.

I wish we could rate this property a 3-1/2. It was better than average, but not "very good." With a few changes, however, it could have been very good.

We stayed at the Magnolia Hotel for five nights while visiting Houston's art museums. The hotel is conveniently located within easy walking distance of the light rail, which serves the city's museum district.

The hotel offers a complimentary cocktail hour, milk and cookies in the evening, and breakfast. Free wifi is another plus. The staff were friendly and helpful.

If I were to make changes I would offer additional healthy breakfast options. Also, I would try to locate guests attending weddings and other functions away from guests who are not. Our neighbors were attending a wedding in the hotel and were partying until very late in the evening. We asked them to try to turn down the volume, but alas, it wasn't to be. Locating wedding, convention, bachelor party guests away from other guests would allow the party-goers to enjoy their special occasion while enabling others to get some rest. Also, the music from the ballroom can be quite loud and guests not attending the function could be located on a higher floor.

Great place to stay. Staff all very nice. Will stay again on my next visit to Houston. Went for a wedding event. The shuttle was really helpful! Even helped the "old folks" get in and out. Very respectful.

The Magnolia Hotel is a beautiful hotel in a great location in downtown Houston. The expectation for a property like this is a comfortable stay with impeccable service. The hotel is very comfortable, but the service was disappointing and the staff disconnected from their guests.

We were promptly greeted by the bellhop who put our luggage on a cart and left it outside. After waiting for 45 minutes in our room, we went downstairs to find our luggage outside the hotel in the exact same place. We were told it would be brought up to our room but no apology was made for the delay or the error.

We had the hotel shuttle take us to Jones Hall a few blocks away from the hotel. The same bellhop drove the shuttle but didn't know exactly where to go. He dropped us off at the parking garage instead of the theatre. When we questioned the location, he just said 'It's up the stairs'.

After we returned to the hotel, we went to the hotel restaurant/bar for a cocktail. The waitstaff were busy doing all the things they do, but never waited on us.

There did not appear to be a manager on site during our stay and there were no comment cards available.

My wife and I were in Houston to watch the Astros and you can't beat the location, only a few blocks walk to the park. The hotel was great the evening reception is a great way to start the night before a game or night on the town. The only negative was that we slept through breakfast and almost checkout. I can't comment on the breakfast next time we'll set the alarm. The valet service was great they let us keep the car there through Sunday's game and kept ourbags for us, great service.

Had a work conference downtown and spent the evening here. Nice Boutique hotel, spacious room and for being an older hotel, is very clean, updated and trendy. Great bar area, great restaurant food, and prime location for everything in the area. Short walk to Astros field and other attractions.
