Good Business Trip – I had a business convention in Huston November 2006 and was put up at the Magnolia. The rooms were nice and clean. The building was prety quiet, I had WiFI in my room so I was able to get some work done. The rest of the hotel seemed nice, though I didn't have alot of time to enjoy the amenities. The staff was friendly. Good Spot for a business trip
Great Hotel! – The Magnolia hotel is a great spot for a special weekend. The rooms are very elegant, the bedding is very plush, and the rooftop pool gives you a very cool view of downtown Houston. They even do cool weekend packages that include a meal at Bossa around the corner.
Great location – Really nice hotel with great and friendly staff. Hotel does not provide parking, but valet parking can be charged to your room for ~$22/day. Walking distance to Minute Maid Park and lots of other restaurants and bars. Pool is very small and closes fairly early in the evening (door locks, so no swimming after closing time). Nice deep tub with shower and lots of other ammenities to make for a good stay.
We'll be back! – My husband and I are Sugar Land residents and stayed at the Magnolia on a Saturday evening. We absolutely loved our stay and will be back for another weekend get-away. We enjoyed lounging by the rooftop pool during the day (although they really need to add some lounge chairs instead of uncomfortable wooden chairs) and hanging out in the Magnolia Club in the evening enjoying the complimentary cookies and milk. The hotel is located one block from Main Street, so dining and clubs are very convenient. We'll also stay when we come downtown for a ballgame or theater district event. A great place for a weekend get-away!!!
Great hotel, great location – My girlfriend and I stayed at the Magnolia in Feb 2006 to go to a weekend long college baseball tournament at Houston's Minute Maid Park. The hotel itself has a great look, and great atmosphere. The staff was very professional, pleasant and helpful. There was live Jazz in the bar and lots of extras. Close to Minute Maid Park and very close to great dining. There are un associated surface lots and garages within a couple blocks of the hotel. The only hotel parking is valet, but it was reasonably priced.
Staff problems – The story is too long for 150 words. I have stayed at the Magnolia hotel twice. On each occassion, I found some of the desk clerks unconcerned about customer complaints. On the second occassion, the manager was rude. It was an embarrassing situation considering I had recommended staying here with friends. This was my last visit.
The Pitts! POOR SERVICE!!!!!!!! – We decided to stay at this hotel after our wedding and it was the worst decision we could have made. It was about 85 degrees the first room we were given although the air was blowing and the thermostat was set to 66. The second room (on a different floor) was just the same - about 85 degrees although the air was blowing and the thermostat was set to 65. We decided to leave the hotel and requested no charge to our credit card. The service from the front desk was atrocious. While they did not charge us that is all they did for us. They also did not offer an apology for the inconvenience or offer to make it right as you would expect a luxury hotel to do! No only will we not return, we will not recommend this hotel to any one!
I'll Be Back again and again!!! – I stayed here almost a year ago and had the nicest suite imaginable. It was like a modern loft downtown! The bar makes some of the best martini's in town and the waitstaff has some eyecandy.
The IT staff was brilliant when I had trouble with my laptop! Free in room HSIA and public hotspots.
Fantastic Value – Great hotel in a very convienient location right in the heart of the historial district. The rooms were very modern, large, with high quality amenties. Awesome value for what you get. Definitely will stay here again the next time i'm in Houston.
Wonderful! – My husband and I stayed there just for fun one weekend and found this to be a wonderful place to stay. The decor is contemporary but not cold. All the extras (happy hour, milk and cookies, etc.) make the hotel a great value as well.
