“Nice romantic hotel with great value and historic character”
Reviewed 31 October 2009

My husband and I stayed at the Magnolia for one night to celebrate our wedding anniversary. We live in the Dallas area and wanted to get away and stay downtown. The location is great, its in walking distance of the DART, and some good restaurants: Fish Market is an excellent seafood restaurant and Iron Cactus is a casual indoor/outdoor Mexican restaurant with great food and a fun atmosphere. There are also a few dance clubs in walking distance as well.

The hotel itself is a historical landmark so it has alot of character inside and out. The size of the rooms is generous, they were very clean and there is a flat screen TV. They even put us up in a room with 3 views of downtown Dallas. They serve cookies and milk each night from 8-10pm and there's a free continental breakfast (including sausage & eggs) every morning.

The only thing we were unhappy about was the room temperature. We walked in and it was freezing cold, so we raised the thermostat and headed out to dinner. 2 hours later when we returned, the room was still very cold. We called the front desk and were told that a service man/engineer would be up to our room. No one ever came and we remained really uncomfortably cold. We ended up turning off the thermostat and eventually it warmed alittle, but not what we expected. We could have called the front desk back but didn't.

We would return again since overall we had a pleasant stay. This was a great hotel for the price paid.

In the centre of everything - we always try and pick a hotel that allows us to walk to everything - and this did the trick nicely. Good rooms, excellent service.

From the moment we parked our car to the last minute we were very well taken care of of by the friendly staff. Our room had a great view and was clean and comfortable. The location is a great advantage and there are many restaurants and bars within walking distance.
The complementary drinks only added to the nice athmosphere!

We checked into The Magnolia Hotel last weekend on Sat. and from check in to check out had a wonderful experience!
The room was perfect-modern and clean-could not have been better. The staff was friendly and helpful. I highly recommend the hot breakfast and cookies and milk in the evening.
While the weather was cold and rainy the Magnolia was warm and added sunshine to a dreary girls weekend.
I would stay there again in a heartbeat!

We stayed here for 2 nights. I booked the hotel on its web site and got a free upgrade to a suite. I was really please with the suite it had a full kitchen, a living room, large bathroom, and a bedroom that included bathrobes. The rooms were beautifully decorated with a good mix of modern fitting into the old building. I picked this hotel due it’s location down town. I had booked to go to the gospel brunch at the house of blues and wanted a hotel that we could walk from. The location was perfect for all things downtown we parked the car up (which as people have said is expensive but convenient) and didn’t get it back until we left. We walked to House of Blues; the gospel brunch was a fantastic experience one of the highlights of our trip to Texas. We walked to all the attractions they range from 5-15 minutes. The front desk were really helpful and provided a map and directions. We did all the tourist stuff, JFK 6th Floor Museum, Dealey Plaza, the longhorn status cattle drive at pioneer plaza, the old red museum. The reunion tower although it was closed on Sunday. We really enjoyed the west end market street area where all the restaurants are based and had some good teas. We went to the happy hour which provided free draft beer and wine but compared to some hotels this was disappointing as there were no snacks it was really busy on Saturday but quite empty on Sunday. The milk and cookies is a lovely idea. We thought the breakfast was a good selection which changed both days. We heard noise out side on the Saturday night quite late which did wake us up even though we were on the 8th floor there is a restaurant at the rear of the building. All in all we had a good stay and it was in a perfect location for what we wanted to experience.

My wife and I got a good deal on a suite at The Magnolia so we figured we'd try it out. The location is in the heart of Downtown Dallas, very close to everything downtown and close to the major highways in Dallas. The Room was large and spacious. The bed was comfortable and the room service was actually good (Kobe Burger). I would recommend this hotel to anyone traveling in Dallas!

I travel every week around the country for work and therefore spend most of my time in hotels. I was so surprised and delighted with The Magnolia hotel in Dallas. It was a nice combination of comfort and luxury while throwing in all the extras. I was thrilled with the complimentary breakfast buffet along with the evening happy hours, not to mention milk and cookies before bed! It was so nice to have treats throughout the day. The location was good making it convenient to walk to restaurants etc. I would definitely recommend this hotel and look forward to staying there in the future.
