Guest Recommendations
"This hotel is very over priced I pay just about 600 for 3 nights, house cleaning threw away one of my brothers belongings. The valet service didn't help us get our luggage it also took forever to get our car. I wasn't pleased with my stay at alll."
Geia from Fresno, TX US rated The Magnolia Hotel Dallas 3 out of 10 on February 15, 2010
"The only problem was the beds were very hard and uncomfortable to sleep on. Did not get a good nights rest."
Verified Guest from Waxahachie, TX US rated The Magnolia Hotel Dallas 8 out of 10 on July 16, 2005
"We stayed in a historical suite. The room was fabulous, but the bellman were rude when we checked in. The breakfast buffet was pretty good. The hotel was beautiful, and the view was breathtaking. Well worth the stay!"
Sherri from Garland, TX US rated The Magnolia Hotel Dallas 10 out of 10 on January 01, 2005
"This was our second stay at the Magnolia, and we would highly recommend it to anyone who wants to stay in downtown Dallas. Neiman-Marcus is on the other end of the block, so superb shopping is a close walk away. The DART system is very close, and it takes you to the West End dining and entertainment district very quickly, and economically."
Monte from Lubbock, TX US rated The Magnolia Hotel Dallas 9 out of 10 on March 14, 2004
"Beautiful, elegant, contemperary, above average. Very accommodating. Slightly slow elevators but the surroundings made the wait seem almost welcome. Every attention to detail. Would definitely recommend and will definitely return."
