Magnolia Hotel Denver
Travel Blogs from Denver
So with the lights of Vegas fading away, it was off to Denver where we would be catching a train to Chicago...
Day 19 - 24 June 2011:
We had booked a flight with Frontier Airlines. This turned out to be one of the best flights we would take in the entire trip. Big ups to the Frontier gang who made our trip a pleasure. It …
Arriving in Denver (it was great to be away from that stupid woman) I was met by Dan (also a friend from Japan who I have not seen for ages) and his wife Yoshiko as we had arranged to go out for dinner.
It was great meeting Yoshiko - we got on very well and I had a wonderful time. Dinner was at Parallel 17 and if you are ever in Denver I …
Ahh, it was so nice to get up and not have to face a whole day of exhibiting! Today I was going to spend the morning being an attendee, and so after breakfast I headed over to the convention centre to listen to a few talks - the main one being Scott Adams, the creator of the highly funny Dilbert cartoons. The guy is just as funny and dry-humoured …
get up before 9am and go down there; which sadly meant I was hungry when I rolled up at the conference at 10:30am. Fortunately there was one doughnut left, so that sated my appetite for a little while, at least until lunch. The exhibition was a bit busier today, which meant that the morning flew past - so quickly in fact that we all forgot about …
So here we are again, the beginning of another trip overseas. I am truly very grateful that my jobs sends me to places that are new to me, and where there are always nice things to do when I am not working. Thanks work! So, I had a ridiculously early start to the day, needing to be at Heathrow at 5am, ready for my 8am flight to Chicago. The flight …

Historical Traveler Reviews Magnolia Hotel Denver
Nice hotel, friendly staff
The rooms are very basic, nothing special, except for an oversized tub. There was a small refrigerator and coffeemaker. The room however is not what made this hotel special, it was the service and very helpful and friendly staff. The location is good if you want to be downtown and close to, or a free bus ride away from everything. The continental breakfeast, cocktails, and cookies were very nice added treats. We have stayed at several upscale hotels in Denver and will check availability at The Magnolia first in the future.
Decent, but don't expect much!
very average hotel for what they market themselves to be. rooms were okay, nothing luxury about any part of the hotel at all. big tubs were nice. don't order food from harry's, they use pace picante sauce and imitation quacamole for there version of chips and dip...yuck! didn't take advantage of the free happy hour or cookies at night, but go early for breakfast....my boyfriend went just before they closed and couldn't even get a seat. oh well, for the price, not bad for downtown.
Our favorite hotel in the States
This is far and away the best hotel my husband and I have stayed at in the States. We always get a suite as we understand the rooms are small. The suites all have a different layout and all have great bathrooms. The price is affordable for a suite. The staff are terrific and helpful in every way possible. We love the cocktail lounge! We have stayed at several hotels in Denver and this is the only one we will go back to.
Very nice stay!
My husband and I stayed here for one night in May 2004 and really enjoyed ourselves. The room was clean and stylish, the bath tub was deep and the room service pizza was fantastic - what more do you need?
Nice Stay for Business
I recently stayed at the Magnolia while on business in Denver. The location is great. Close to light rail, the 16th street mall and all the fun stuff downtown. The service at the front dest was excellent and efficient. The building is older and the long hallways can be a little confusing. The room was clean and nice. Enjoyed the nice couch for lounging and the bathroom was very nice. The evening happy hour, cookies and milk and continental breakfast at no extra cost are great perks. If staying downtown and looking for a nice place to stay that isn't too expensive this is the place for you.
Not so romantic weekend at the Magnolia.
Our recent stay at the Magnolia hotel, was by far not worth a return visit! My girlfriend and I were very dissappointed in the hotel right from the beginning. We chose to park our own car, and were sent to a run down parking garage from which we had to "grin and bare it" through elevators that smelled like somebody was living in them on a consistant basis. We checked into a suite which was not very impressive, let alone the one we paid for. I was told by the front desk the suite we paid for was unavailable to us at this point in time. Not one of these seventy suites were available to us. The staff of the hotel was not the least bit impressive either. Therefore, to those who are thinking about frequenting this hotel, I suggest you think twice!
Great suites for great rates!
I live in downtown Denver, and I consider this to be a very good hotel by Denver standards. I have not stayed overnight, but I have had many friends and business associates stay here. The suites are not gigantic, but they are very-well equipped and affordable. I wouldn't expect modern, high-end decor, but the rooms are clean and traditionally furnished. They don't look cheap at all to me, just dated by about 10 years (and aren't most people's homes the same?) Fireplaces are a nice touch. The non-suite rooms can be pretty small (although if you've been to New York or any other large city, this won't be a big deal). Their complementary happy hour (including food) is a nice touch. Harry's Bar is great! I don't hang out in hotel bars, but this is an exception.
Nice solid hotel
Nice hotel, if your a business traveler you will like the wireless net.
Good service, excellent bar. Breakfast bar needs a lot of help, but Starbucks is just across the entrance to the hotel.
In Love with the Magnolia
Our stay at the Magnolia was absolutely wonderful. The service was fantastic and our suite was was far beyond our expectations. We felt like we were at home with the warm fireplace, cozy kitchen and comfortable bed. We would strongly recommend this hotel to all travelers.
A disaster! We could not check in because the computers were down, the rooms are plain and poorly remodeled, there were no sheets for the sofa bed, no batteries in the wall clock, two towels in a four-person suite. The cribs were decrepit. The parking elevators only work about half the time--you may end up walking outside on the street or at best get into the hotel and feel like a mouse in maze trying to get to the hotel elevators. The fitness room is a joke, as is Harry's bar. The lighting is funky-bad. They were out of eggs at breakfast and out of milk at milk and cookie time. The views are bad unless you want to look into someone else's room. They have about 10 free channels on TV, all other "amenities" they advertise are added to your room bill. Don't bother to complain either because the customer service is also bad.
