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
There were a few hiccups with housekeeping with cleaning of the rooms and a few other things but overall the room okay and very spacious. However the customer service at the hotel lounge was top notch. The food was wonderful. It was always hot and seasoned very well. Their breakfast selection was outstanding as well as their main menu. Those pancakes were so light and delicious I would go back just for another stack. I loved the wings and their Cajun club (so fresh and delicious). Mr. Kenny, Juan and Mr. K (not sure of the spelling of his name) were absolutely wonderful. Mr. Kenny greeting me each morning with a smile, remembering that I like Pepsi with light ice. His patience and knowledge of the menu was impressive. Juan has a smile and warm presence that make you feel at home and Mr. K was just as friendly. Their professionalism, attention to detail and dedication to their guests is what made my view of the Magnolia and my stay so wonderful.
Lots of history, wonderful building.. Central location. Recommend it highly. I can't speak of it highly enough. The 200 characters minimum limit does not help it as I have nothing else to say. Yet I still have to type... It's great. Don't worry.
Excelent service, check in was smooth, nice warm cookies, bar is nice and relaxing. Juan treated us nicely. stayed for 4 days and he remebered our drinks and greeted us with a warm smile.
Good for families or couples, walking distance to museums, Elm Street and a 25 minute ride to Dallas Stadium.
