This hotel is located in the theatre district within easy walking distance to Opera, ballet, symphony and other theatre events. Night life wine bars, etc. Very snazzy decor, excellent amenities including free happy hour, and full breakfakst. We missed the free milk and cookies at night. Only flaw was our non-smoking room smelled of smoke! But management was more than happy to move us and would track down the problem of how that hapened. Would definitely stay there again and recommend to others.

Nice staff and pretty central location for business. Restaurant was not great in terms of food or atmosphere. Business centre was not as good as it should be given the number of business travellers. Very loud parties on the open second and third floors and the housekeeping (daily) was not great. Comfortable and good value otherwise. Pool really small and windy on the roof.

I am in Houston weekly for business and generally choose to stay here. Location is very good, rooms are slightly above average, rates are very good and bathrooms are nice.

Downsides: biggest downside is the unprofessional people who run the front desk, I have had interactions with virtually all of them and in my opinion they all need to attend a finishing class in order to polish their interpersonal/customer service skills. They are all quite surly and have rough edges.

Overall though this is a better than average hotel for business in downtown Houston and the price is right (I have never paid more than $200 per night).

The Magnolia is our typical overnight choice in Houston. We have always found it to be clean and comfortable and the staff is usually very friendly. The happy hour drink and nightime cookies and milk are a nice treat and yes even at 40 I still enjoy a cc cookie before going to bed...:) The rooms are nice, bed are comfortable, and bathrooms are well appointed. If I have one complaint and its more of a comment than a complaint the TV's and in-room technololgy needs to be refreshed. Internet was free and reasonably fast with wireless serving the bottom half of the hotel. Overall a good value for a stay in downtown Houston.
