Many of the reviews love this hotel. I can not understand why. I travel for work and have stayed in 100s of hotels, and this one lands near the bottom of my list.
The hotel has a lot of "potential" but never lives up to it. It's dirty, run down, and not well maintained. Stains on the furniture, flies in the dining room, shower and sink that back up when using them, rooms that need to be painted and recarpeted, broken wheels on the desk chair in my room, 1st floor doors that don't open to the patio, a bed that nearly tipped over when sitting on the edge, no hangars in the closet - the list goes on and on.
This was probably a great hotel in its day, however, the day passed years ago.
I read the on-line reviews and got a recommendation from a local colleague of mine to stay here. The room rate was 50% more than other comparable rates at the Hilton and the Marriott. In many cases, when a local boutique hotel charges more money, they usually have higher standards and the experience matches the price point. In this case, it is not true. (P.S. - A standard for a world class boutique hotel would be the Driskill Hotel www.driskillhotel.com in Austin TX - a fabulous hotel and one that the Magnolia could live up to if they chose to.)
I would not stay here again and would not recommend anyone else to either.
On a positive note, I will say that the hotel did have one thing going for them - perhaps the best hotel staff - front desk, valet, bartenders, waitstaff. They were all first class. It's just a shame that the facilities themselves don't match their standards.
