Reviewed 1 April 2014

Overall a nice property. Was dissapointed that there wasn't a pool. It is a great location. The workout room is nice, rarely used but it is nice. It is an absolute perfect location. Cannot be beat.

Rooms are small but workable. Very New York City like...


One last thing to point out, the elevators are very slow. Allow yourself extra time.

Pleased though

I've been staying in hotels all over Dallas lately, as I travel here for work on a weekly basis. I have stayed in a different hotel every week, always trying to find one that fits the bill. FINALLY. The Magnolia is a breath of fresh air. The hotel is in an old building, so I find the elevators to be terrifying, but that's the only real complaint that I have. The room is quaint, cozy, inviting, and comfortable. The bed is fantastic. I am finally sleeping for the first time in weeks. I love the windows in the room, too. They let in plenty of light and offer a view. I also like the large tub in the bathroom. The second floor lounge/restaurant area is very nice and spacious. The free breakfast is definitely a bonus and is very good. The bar area is also nice. In general, the hotel is very nice, clean, spacious, and inviting. The décor is also very nice. This is the best place I've stayed in Dallas thus far.

The suites are clean (no dirty socks from walking in my sock feet!) and spacious. The staff was very helpful and accommodating. The elevators definitely need improvement. Other than that, everything was very nice.

I'll preface this by saying that I realize we stayed @ the hotel during a VERY busy weekend for downtown Dallas. Multiple weddings and conventions were taking place, so I understand that the staff was a little overwhelmed at times.

However, having said all of this, I don't feel as though the hotel was prepared for the influx of guests it was about to receive. We arrived an hour before check in, and while I understand it was necessary for us to wait (since check in was not until 3 p.m.), we were called and notified that our room was ready well after the standard check in time. This was also the case for multiple other guests who were arriving in town/at the hotel for a wedding that day.

I'd hope that the hotel would have worked ahead of time with the bride and groom on the reserved room block(s) and times of arrival so that they could better accommodate the arrival of their guests.

The rooms/suites were adequate, but there was not enough lighting in any one room.
I also couldn't find a full length mirror and given the type of guest that would frequent this place and their reasons for visiting (meetings, weddings, etc.), I'm guessing a full length mirror in the bathroom or closet would be a great value add.

Lastly, I'll bring up the issue that I believe everyone has mentioned - the elevators.
I get it, this is an old building with historic elevators that have been there since the beginning of creation. They probably carried Moses up to his 26th floor suite.
And I read the review responses that said the hotel's trying to figure out a new game plan for these horrific things (and the fact that there are only 2-3 of them working for guests at any given time). But seriously, people have been complaining about these elevators since at least 2008 - please take some of the money you gained from your surplus of guests this past weekend and invest it into some additional elevators. If I were the staff there, I'd be SO OVER hearing these complaints.

Overall - gorgeous hotel with tons of history, but I'd probably never elect to stay there again.

Room Tip: Ask for a room on the first, second or third floors so you can avoid even having to look at the elev...

We used the Magnolia Dallas for my daughters recent wedding. Many of our guests commented on the great value, location and amenities the hotel offered. The large second floor area where the complementary breakfast and happy hour were was a super place to meet groups of guests. The rooms are very nice, and the value is exceptional. The only negative I heard anyone comment on was the slow elevators, and they were very slow during peak hours.

Room Tip: The views are better from the upper floors but if the hotel is full making the elevators even slower...

The hotel is situated in an iconic building, right in the centre of Dallas. The rooms are done to a high standard and the beds were really comfortable. We could walk to all the main sights from the hotel. The breakfast was excellent also. All in all, a great stay!
