In the heart of Dallas, Magnolia Hotel is a big-city hotel with the look and vibe of a boutique crash pad. Easy to spot in downtown’s 1922 Beaux-Arts Magnolia Building (Dallas’ first skyscraper), the vast lobby feels grand but modern, with heavy columns, a glass-and-wood staircase and central banquettes. Upstairs, guestrooms come Texas sized (the smallest are 400 square feet), and all have free WiFi, 32” flatscreen TVs, large work areas, tea and coffee making facilities, mini fridges and deep soaking tubs. Upgrade to a suite for an apartment-like space and small kitchenette. On the second-floor, the Lounge is equal parts restaurant, bar, games room and social club. Start your day here with the free hot breakfast, and don’t miss the evening wine and beer reception, followed by a pre-bedtime spread of milk and cookies. For lunch and dinner, order from an international mix of pizzas, hearty meat entrees and creative shared plates. There’s no pool, but a small fitness center is open round the clock, and the buzzing Arts District is just a five-block walk away.
In the Area
Refine your wardrobe at Neiman Marcus‘s flagship store. See works by Matisse, Picasso, and Giacometti at the Nasher Sculpture Center, a well-edited collection with indoor and outdoor exhibits. Dallas’s arts district garnered national attention with the opening of two impressive venues: the Dee and Charles Wyly Theater and the Margot and Bill Winspear Opera House. At Five Sixty by Wolfgang Puck Dallas, you’ll find sushi and stunning skyline views, courtesy of a dining room floor that completes a 360-degree rotation once every hour.
How to Get There
Our queen suite had a nice kitchenette, dining table, and pull out sofa in a living area that were all separated from the bedroom. We had lovely views. Everything was spotless and well appointed. The Magnolia is pet friendly but the nearest place to walk a dog is at a park 2 blocks away. It was a delightful experience and we would definitely stay at the Magnolia again.
The stay was fine. No complaints. The room was clean and that is my number one priority. Do consider that you have to pay for parking separately and the parking garage is a block away from the hotel. Valet service is available for purchase. No breakfast is included in the stay— I’d misunderstood that when I booked so that was a disappointment and I had to come up with other plans.
This may not he the fanciest hotel that Dallas has to offer but it is certainly clean and service was great! Very reasonably priced and in an excellent location! I will stay here again and tell my friends about this place as well!!
