Magnolia Hotel Dallas Downtown

4.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

Everyone was very friendly and helpful. I loved the cookies and milk time. I wish I had been around for Wednesday happy hours. The fitness room is well equipped.

Beautiful older hotel, kept real clean very spacious rooms

Room was much larger than expected, with vaulted ceilings and even a parlor. The staff at the Magnolia was excellent, and I would highly recommend their quaint hotel bar: Knowledgable and friendly bartenders, great service and fun crowd. Murph was awesome!

Nicely situated, friendly staff, clean large rooms. I just didn't like the fact that the room was very dark. Dark brown colour and very little daylight reached the room.

Located in the heart of downtown next to the Joule and Niemans I was taken by the hotel's claim to be a boutique and its iconic location. Arriving at the hotel I was immediately disappointed by the uninspired lobby. The check in experience wasn't terrible but the staff's lack of understanding of the area and where I could get a late dinner was disappointing. I was located on the 22nd floor which definitely afforded some nicer views. If you stay in Dallas as much as I do you'll be happy to look at anything that isn't a parking lot. The room layout was quite decent but everything felt tired. The bed was quite comfortable but the desk and drawers looked knocked abut and in the bathroom the floor was spongy and many tiles were cracked. I wouldn't stay here again if I could help it but if it were the only option I wouldn't whine too much.

The hotel is really pretty but the rooms are a little dated and older feeling. Our room had windows on three sides with views which was great but then there was rope and mesh over all of them obstructing the view. Not sure why. Overall just eh. For the money I think there are nicer places downtown.

Pleasant surprise in the heart of downtown Dallas.

The hotel is beaten down and needs new carpet, paint, and furniture. I think they are using a chemical like Febreze all over because there was a strong chemical smell everwhere. I had a headache all day from it.

Great location for any downtown business. Easy in and out of downtown access.

Great location in downtown and easy to walk to things.

I loved the location of the hotel in itsome proximity to bars and restaurants. And the hotel staff as well as the valet were all very helpful. The only reasons I can't give it 5 starts is 1) the rooms seem a little dated and 2) the pipes burst during our stay so only one elevator was working. I know this isn't the hotel's fault but we had to wait 15 minutes for an elevator multiple times and call the front desk to have someone manually pick us up. Wouldn't be an issue but another guest said this was a frequent occurrence at this hotel.

Was a wonderful trip loved the room everyone over knowledgeable and friendly. Would definitely stay again and recommend.

the lighting of the hotel is beautiful and the complimentary breakfast was great. it was nice that hotel provided valet parking which I was not expecting the .....very accommodating thank you for a great experience

The Magnolia Hotel was centrally located, clean, and a good home base for our quick weekend trip.

I had an issue at first, but the hotel staff was very understanding and corrected it promptly.

Great view of Downtown from this more than 20 story hotel.

A great place to have a beautiful, yet boutique stay.

I'm a native of Dallas, and have stayed here many times, most recently on my honeymoon night. It's a great hotel, in a renovated historic building. It has character, but still feels new and very comfortable. It's in a great location, within walking distance to lots of food and drink options, and within walking distance to the arts district and other downtown destinations. I'd highly recommend this hotel, it's a great deal for the cost.

Good location, valet is a pain. I despise valet parking. However I would stay there again.

hairspray smell throughout

Everyone

The hotel is beaten down and needs new carpet, paint, and furniture. I think they are using a chemical like Febreze all over because there was a strong chemical smell everwhere. I had a headache all day from it.
