For the price we paid for our package, the hotel was very enjoyable. Good presentation when you enter the lobby, friendly and efficient staff, and decent food. The amount of "free" stuff--like complimentary drinks during Happy Hour, bedtime milk
and cookies, and free hot breakfast--included with our room made it well worth it!
The only complaint I would have is the location of our room. We got a corner room with no view. Which meant we looked out our window and saw two walls (additional rooms of the hotel) and no sunshine ever entered our room. Luckily, we didn't spent much time inside. So if you're visiting, I suggest you ask specifically for a room with a non-brick wall-view or just be busy enough so you won't go crazy by staying in your room.
Great rooms...great decor and roomy, just poor lighting. The bathrooms are huge, with a big tub/shower. The staff is very friendly and helpful, especially the valets. There is a charge for parking, but you will have that at most hotels. But the
Wi-fi is free anywhere in the hotel, and that's a plus. The breakfast buffett is included with your room, and is excellent. The lounge on the second floor has a great atmosphere and was a fun place to have Happy Hour. Good location in Downtown...about a 30 minute drive from the outlet mall we went to in Allen, TX and Cowboy Stadium. We will definitely stay here again.

Short walk from hotel
The Iron Cactus restaurant is just around the corner from the Magnolia Hotel in the same block. They have great Mexican food. You must try the fresh guacamole that they prepare at your table, and of course, a margarita!
