Good location for conference center and arena. Rooms were clean and bed was big and confortable. People @desk were helpful (printing flight booking and other papers etc.)

Breakfast wasn't what i'm used for, but you can survive couple of hours with that. Coffee was good.

Room Tip: There was constuction going on at neigbourhood and that noice was loud still 19th floor. Check neigh...

I recently stayed at the Magnolia in Houston for my first time. The Magnolia is definitely a "boutique" hotel. The staff was great, very friendly and helpful. My bed was firm and comfortable and the room was very clean. The complimentary breakfast was great. Room service was prompt and tasty. I have only one gripe: as with many "high end" hotels, the business center charges for computer time. I do not like being nickle and dimed when I need to print out a few documents. However, the outcome was good - the front desk printed my document when I emailed to the front desk. I would certainly stay here again.

Staying at the Magnolia is part of an Astros game experience for us. The breakfast is delicious, the evening happy hour is convenient and fun, and the cookies in the evening are the best. We walked to the game and also to dinner. If we hadn't been exhausted from all of that fun, we could have chosen from any number of nearby opportunities for nightlife. The rooms are always beautiful and clean.

Easily accessible off of the interstate. Close to Minute Maid Park. The free breakfast was one of the best I have ever had at a hotel. When a hotel does not have its own parking available, valet usually does not go well. This was the best I have ever experienced.

Room Tip: Some rooms have a mini kitchen, so ask for the upgrade

We've stayed here several times before, but this was our longest stay. Disclaimer: shortcomings become more obvious with longer stays. I will do my best to give a balanced review.

PROS:
Large, clean rooms
Excellent customer service from lounge waitresses, bartenders, housekeepers, front desk staff
The king suite with kitchenette is AWESOME. Extra large bathroom area, stove top, microwave, fridge, utensils, cleaning supplies. VERY GOOD if you are planning an extended stay

CONS:
Ice machine on our floor was disgusting. Needs to be cleaned or someone will get sick.
Pool needs to be cleaned. It looked green and my kids did not want to jump in.
Breakfast chefs bringing out food for complimentary buffet are grumpy. Don't ask them for anything because they won't accomodate. Ask the waitresses - they're great.
Complimentary cookie reception is only "while supplies last." Hotel really needs a sign for busy nights that limits cookies to 2 per person. We had to fight for cookies when the hotel was busy.
Breakfast buffet has been downgraded over the years and is now very, very simple. There are NO MORE WAFFLES - you've been warned!

Overall, still a great stay, and we will be back if the price is right.

Selected this hotel based on price and proximity to Minute Maid Park. Attended Red Sox/Astros game on a Friday night...great to see so many Red Sox fans. Parked car via valet, which we later learned was directly billed to hotel room at a hefty $28/night. Greeted nicely by front desk and advised of hotel amenities. Room on 7th floor was clean and comfortable. I had asked in advance for extra pillows and a room away from elevator and pool and got what I wanted. However, breakfast buffet was a disaster. Arrived at 9:30 (breakfast ends at 10am) to find a huge line, no available tables, and no silverware. After waiting in line 15 minutes, we decided to go to the cafe located next to the hotel. Also, I fell in the bathtub because there are no bathtub mats and treads in the shower, but there is a grab bar on the far end of the shower. The final issue was a toilet backup which may or may not have been in each room on our floor because the whole hallway smelled like sewage that Saturday morning. All in all, a decent, older hotel that has good as well as bad points. We would likely stay again due to proximity to ballpark and price.
