“Great deal for the price!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 3 August 2014

The rooms were obviously recently updated. Not very big but nice for the price. The only bad thing I can say is that the pool was a joke. The pictures are taken in a very deceiving way to make it look like this giant rooftop pool, when in reality the pool is a small corner of the roof. We stayed there on July 4th, hoping to watch the fireworks from the roof, but the pool was facing the wrong side of downtown. The rest of the roof is taken up by the fitness center. The pool was also very crowded and had a greenish tint to the water. All in all I would definitely stay here again due to the price and location, just look elsewhere if you want a nice pool to relax at.

I really liked this old looking Hotel , not sure the year it was constructed but it has character and I am sure some history. I wish I had taken the time to research. The room was clean not huge though, but accommodating . We were on the 19th floor nice view from the window of our room and beautiful view from the roof. If you go to the 22nd floor which is where the pool is , its very cool!!! The view spectacular of all the buildings downtown and some of the architectural buildings downtown wouldn't be seen with out this view . Sooo....go swimming..

Room Tip: The higher the better .....

From the reviews we read online, we expected more from this hotel. The room smelled a little musty, there were cracks on the window sills, hairs on the bathroom floor from the prior guests. On the other hand, the front desk staff was very nice. They had a courtesy shuttle that worked out great for dinner plans. They offered a small complimentary breakfast, evening reception, and cookies if you can take advantage. We stayed here an extra day after returning from a cruise to see a baseball game. Totally recommend that.The stadium was walking distance

The room was wonderful: large and roomy with the best hotel bed and pillows I've ever slept on! The curtains were thick and provided complete dark throughout the night and morning. The bath had a large, deep tub with a powerful shower head, and the vanity had a lighted, portable mirror for make up application! There were plenty of thick towels as well. The complimentary offerings of breakfast, drinks, and bedtime cookies were a nice touch.

Catching an elevator was slow and always crowded. Check-in was also slow with a line, while check-out was slightly faster.

Very nice hotel. Good location. Room was very clean. Bathroom was nice and clean. The Cafe downstairs stays open late and that was very helpful as I came back to the hotel late both nights I was there and was able to get a snack before heading to bed. The Valet was good, but when it gets crowded you do sometimes have to wait longer than normal for your car. This only happened on Saturday morning though.

Stayed at The Magnolia Hotel Houston this past weekend. Great for Houston Astros games, was able to walk down for the game. Room was ready when I got there, very clean, and comfortable. I even got an upgrade to a suite which was a very nice surprise. Did not take advantage of the happy hour or cookies but was very impressed with the breakfast (included eggs, potatoes, oatmeal, fruit, bacon, toast..). There is construction next to the hotel at the moment and my room was facing it however I was on the 12th floor and it did not bother me, I rarely heard it. Overall it was a great experience and I enjoyed my stay. Very nice hotel.

We stayed one night to catch an Astros game. Nice room within walking distance of Minute Maid Park. Staff was cordial and helpful. Breakfast was free and more than adequate. We would definitely consider staying here again.
