“Great value for a cool hotel”
Reviewed 9 December 2011

We have stayed at the Magnolia Hotels in Dallas and Houston several times. If you get on their mailing list and wait for the specials you cannot beat the value: $99/night or $129 for a suite with free happy hour and breakfast. The Dallas hotel has a really cool outdoor hot tub and the design of the hotel in general is hip but still maintains honor to its historic roots. We had some internet trouble but they did their best to trouble-shoot and even offered to upgrade our room to compensate. Its not a 5 star but its really nice!!

Room Tip: Wait for last minute deals on travel sites or get on their mailing list.

Friend and I spent 5 days in Dallas over Thanksgiving in order to see Dallas Cowboys for the first time in a regular season game at the amazing Cowboys Stadium.

Needed a decent hotel for the stay and after reading a number of reviews chose the Magnolia based on - positive feedback, location, FREE WiFi, FREE breakfast, FREE cookies and milk - oh and cost!

We were not disappointed! Had a room on 20th floor with 2 queen size beds. Very comfortable.

Check in was easy. Valet parking was no problem. Shuttle cars useful. Breakfast was fine. Service was great. Room was ideal. John (or Jaaaaaaaaaannnnnn) on the bar was a blast. Pool table by bar was a nice bonus. And the lifts....they were fine!! There is a sign on some of them explaining they are not being replaced as they are a feature of the old building and as long as they are safe who cares!!! Only once did we have a few minutes of waiting and that was around the busy breakfast period. Chill out!

If you are going to Dallas to do the Thanksgiving Day Turkey Trot and need a base - stay here! We ended up joining in the fun without any idea it was going on - just 2 blocks away!

As soon as you understand the road and traffic signs it is ideal for getting to other parts of Dallas/Texas - only 5 mins for American Airlines Centre (Center!), 20 mins to Galleria mall, about 25 mins to Cowboys Stadium, 35 mins to DFW airport, 30 mins to McKinney, 25 mins to Mesquite for Rodeo...basically quite central!

Loved it, would return at the drop of a cowboy hat....

Room Tip: Had room on 20th floor near lifts - couldnt hear them. Very quiet, view of AT&T headquarters!

If you are staying downtown the Magnolia is a great location for business or leisure. The breakfast has a wide variety of choices. The cookies and milk in the evening are great for winding down for the evening. Bonus are the super soft robes!

Room Tip: If you are a light sleeper ask for a room high up. It is in the middle of downtown so the traffic n...

Well above average hotel rooms. I had a queen suite this last visit on a special for $109/night. Very large, four room suite (including bedroom, living room, bathroom, and kitchen). This hotel is in an older historic building in Dallas so it lacks some contemporary features in places, but the advantages outweight the disadvantages. Lobby and lounge area are modern. Older, slower elevators. Guest rooms are nicely furnished--well above average furnishings--but can be underlit at night (i.e., some rooms need an additional overhead light or additional floor or table lamp). Light switches in the queen suite were difficult to find in the dark when first entering various rooms. Classic hotel. Was the headquarters of the Magnolia Oil Company many years ago and a skyscraper in its heyday. Excellent restaurants nearby. Centrally located and close to more luxe, but often no better hotels.

Great prices, locations, amenities.

Here's the thing, I'm not a negative person, and I stayed here once before and had one of the best expriences and ranted and raved about it. However, my last stay here really changed my mind about this place.

Terrible customer service from tricking you to take "upgrades with bigger rooms and a better view " that are actually "downgrades" with broken toilets, no heat, and a view of the rockbeded roof.

In addition, they have flashy Suburbans that they use in their shuttle system (free transportation around a certain radius of Downtown Dallas) but if it isn't "far enough", or they have other people waiting, they'll lie and tell you that "the shuttles are down" when in reality, there's one in the driveway, and another pulling in (literally as they speak those words)

My first experience was a 4.5 out 5, and my last experience was a 1 out of 5, so I rounded out with a 2 (poor)
