Complimentary breakfast, evening happy hour and cookies at bedtime
Customer service received mixed reviews
Just a few blocks west of Minute Maid Park, this hotel starts the day off with a complimentary breakfast buffet and ends the evening with a free happy hour reception and bedtime cookies. As well as these perks, recent guests rave about the Magnolia Hotel Houston's rooftop pool and Jacuzzi, describing the skyline views as fantastic. Visitors are just as complimentary of the guest rooms, which feature brightly colored decorative accents (which add a fun, quirky feel to the hotel's historic architecture), minibars and complimentary Wi-Fi. When it's time to eat, chow down on contemporary American fare in The Lounge or have it delivered to your room. Recent guests say that this Houston property is a great bargain given its location and long list of freebies, but some visitors say that the hotel needs to work on its customer service, citing disorganized staff as its only downside. Keep in mind that because this is a Tribute Portfolio hotel, members of the Marriott Bonvoy program can earn and redeem points by choosing to stay here.

  • AAA/CAA Four Diamond Awards 2019



The rooms are a bit plainer, but oversized (which is always nice) with dignified, corporate-style furnishings, a gray color palette with pops of color, and on the higher floors, fabulous views.

Frommer's Very Highly Recommended



The rooftop pool offers great downtown views. Bedding and linens are amazing, some of the best we've experienced.

Travel + Leisure


The overall feeling here is very urban, partly because of all the skyline and freeway views, and partly because of the preponderance of serious-seeming business travelers.
