Houston

A travel blog entry by fe_wyld

Houston is pretty but really boring! Theres no one about downtown either, which someone said is because its a weekend, and it feels like a ghost town! My hotel is very nice though, ive used a lot of room service trying to recover from my 26 hour journey from Nazca....

Rodeo/Carnival & arrival of the In-Laws

... frozen gluten free products (Honni/Lib - you'd like this), followed by an array of organic health products (shampoo/conditioner, vitamins, soaps etc etc). Bear in mind that everything is organic in this shop and it's the size of the average Woolworths/Coles store - the options are seemingly endless and almost equivalent in price to non-organic items in Australia.
Moving along the aisles through cereals, health food bars and snacks, organic chocolate and chips, ...

1 day before we leave on the Carnival Magic

A travel blog entry by joyf

The hype is building as we pack our bags for our 7 day cruise on the Carnival Magic leaving from Galveston, Texas. Checking and double checking the weather as heavy fog is expected tomorrow to delay the arrival of the Magic. We are hoping & praying that it clears & all will be on time. We are due to set sail at ...

    Got a great deal and was a great place to stay, lovely roof top spa and pool. Rooms big and spacious, people friendly and really good base for exploring downtown.

    Historical Traveler Reviews Magnolia Hotel Houston

    Beautiful hotel, excellent service!!!

    from

    I just returned from my first trip to Houston and wanted to write about my experience with the Magnolia Hotel.

    Loved the Magnolia in Houston

    from

    We were very pleased with everything about the Magnolia, except the $20 a night charge to park our car. The room was beautiful and spacious; the service was excellent. We received a coupon for two free drinks at the bar that evening, plus a really superb free continental breakfast - hot oatmeal, many other cereal selections, yogurt, various sweet bakery items, three kinds of juices, bagels, coffee, hot tea, etc. We highly recommend the hotel.

    New favorite getaway

    from

    We stayed in the Magnolia Aug 27th-29th. It was great. We've decided this is our new favorite place to stay when we have to stay in downtown Houston. Our room was great. The rooftop pool and work out room were both very nice. The hotel is half way between the theater district and Minutemaid Park. It's a block from Main Street. We walked everywhere we went. We've even gone back to the Magnolia lounge before a ballgame just to visit. Service was never a problem during our stay, everyone was right on top of anything we asked for. I highly recommend.

    More good than bad

    from

    Before we stayed at the Magnolia, I had read several reviews that ranged from excellent to very bad regarding the hotel. I hoped that I had made the right choice by choosing to stay with my family at the Magnolia. I believe we did! This hotel is one of the most spectacular hotels we have ever stayed with it's gorgeous lobby, rooms that are spacious and beautiful with wonderful views, and the crowing glory...a swimming pool and hot tub on the roof that was open at all hours to enjoy. And all within walking distance of Minute Maid Park! The only "problems" we may have encountered at all was a dishwasher that needed repair while we were staying in the room. But the staff was very polite about it and tried to get it amended as soon as possible. I know the hotel is still fairly "new" to the area...but they are coming along very nicely in my opinion.

    Magnolia Hotel-Houston Texas

    from

    I stayed in the Magnolia for two nights in July for my aniversary. I enjoyed the hotel it was beautiful, but I agree with many of the reviews I had read-Service in terrible. I am not planning to stay there again.

    Terrible Service

    from

    Our rooms were not ready when we checked in. We had to wait for an hour, and then when we went to our room it was occupied by another guest. There was a room service food tray outside of my room for 2 days and I called to have it picked up 3 times. The food started to smell up the hall. The breakfast bar was never stocked and it took us 2 hours to get our appetizers one night at the bar. There is 3 elevators but only 2 operating ones. It took up to 10-15 minutes to just wait for the elevator to get to our rooms. The hotel itself is beautiful but the service is the worst I have ever experienced.

    Magnolia Service

    from

    The Magnolia is a beautiful hotel with many good qualities. My only complaint was the service. The concierge didn't have much knowledge on downtown dining. We were pretty much on our own. The car service they are supposed to have for downtown destinations was not available (broken). The valet parking attendants are questionable, I was brought the wrong car after giving the attendant my ticket (they said somebody must have parked it in the wrong spot). The good news is that all of the bellmen were pleasant.

    Awesome start to cruise vacation

    from

    We spent a night a the Magnolia Hotel recently and really enjoyed our experience. We were cruising out of Galveston and decided to go early and check out Houston. The hotel is awesome. Service was incredible. Our room which we booked on Hotwire was spacious, clean, and modern. The staff was helpful, recommending kid friendly restaurants within walking distance of the property. The free cocktails and cookies and milk were a pleasant surprise. We also took advantage of free rides to and from close by attractions. We definately will stay there again when traveling to Houston, it was one of the nicest hotels we have ever stayed in!!!

    Great hotel; friendly staff. Service? Not quite there yet.

    from

    I have stayed here 3 times. I love the hotel. Great location, beautiful, comfortable rooms, fantastic decor (nice bar, good gym), and the staff is as friendly as all get-out. Unfortunately, it still hasn't been able to get its act together.

    A Must Stay

    from

    We enjoyed every minute at this hotel. We came in on Valentine's Day, but decided to stay an additional night to fully enjoy all that the hotel had to offer. We relaxed in the rooftop spa overlooking the Downtown skyline, which was the most beautiful vision I've ever seen.

    The staff was efficient and very friendly. I was given a tour of the hotel before staying there highlighting all the history behind the hotel and art exhibits. The atmosphere was very serene. I recommend the Sambuca Package because it pays for two entrees at the Sambuca Jazz Cafe, which was an experience within itself. We were catered to our entire visit.
