    Pegasus on the Roof

    by

    I have not stayed here and probably could not afford to. I was interested primarily in the architecture and the winged horse on the roof.

    themagnoliahotel.com website does not appear to be a valid one. There are some good reviews and some not so good on Trip Advisor ranging from a

    *****five star "GREAT anniversary weekend!," A Trip Advisor User, Waco, TX, September 16, 2004 to

    *1 of 5 stars "Maybe the worst service in Dallas?," A Trip Advisor User, Washington, DC, August 28, 2004

More about The Magnolia Hotel Dallas

Red Pegasus sign

by keeweechic

The red Pegasus sign on top of the Magnolia hotel has become a historical landmark in Dallas. The hotel was built in 1922 originally for the Magnolia Petroleum Company. In 1934 the famous red neon Pegasus was erected on the roof. It is 40 feet long by 30 feet tall and was said to have in those days, guided people traveling to Dallas as it could be seen 75 miles away on a clear night. The original Pegasus rusted and gained damage through climate over the years and ceased to rotate. A replica was made to put back in its place and can now be seen rotating again. There are actually 2 neon horses on either side of an oil derrick .The Pegasus is still a symbol of Exxon Mobil Corp. who became Magnolia Petroleum's successor.

Nice Hotel for business, but service needs some help

by A TripAdvisor Member

The Magnolia Hotel is a very nice (clean and renovated) hotel, and I am picky. The breakfast is very basic and the rooms are either very small or very large. The front desk is ofter clueless as are the valet guys at the entrance to the hotel. Location is a bit out of the way but they drive you to your office if it is in downtown.

Great hotel and excellent service

by A TripAdvisor Member

What a great hotel with great service to boot! This is the 2nd time I have stayed at a Magnolia Hotel and I have to say that they are very consistent both in service and overall style of the hotel. I was in Dallas on business and was blown away by what great service this hotel had. From the Front Desk Staff to the Bell Staff everyone was very pleasant and ready to go above and beyond!

Absolutely Awesome

by TripAdvisor Member I10Traveler

Travel to Dallas on business 2 times per month and stayed for first time at Magnolia Hotel based on a colleague recommendation.

I was presently suprised by the "Style" this hotel has and how they have blended it so well in a historic building. It use to be the Magnolia Oil Building, which became Mobil Oil. It also has the Pegasus Horse, which is a Icon for the City of Dallas on the Roof.

Service was great and the room was exceptional. Great decor, comfortable bed, oversized tub, and wonderful views.

Great (and huge) fitness facility.

Loved the complimentary happy hour each evening.

I will definitely be back and highly recommend Magnolia Hotel to anyone traveling to Dallas.

Great stay!

by A TripAdvisor Member

My family and I stayed in a suite with a full kitchen on the 5th floor not facing the street for 2 weeks and our stay was great. We were able to sleep in and avoided most(if not all) of the noise from downtown. Most of the staff were friendly, the comp breakfast and cocktails were fine. The only complaints were valet was slow at times bringing our truck up and there is no all day room service. Evening room service began at 5pm and ended @ 11pm, and the selection wasn't vast (but tasted good) which was a bit difficult when you have small hungry kids. There aren't many restaurants either in the area that stay open past 10pm. Overall, we got a great rate ($157.00/per night) and would highly recommend the Magnolia Hotel!

Nice room, but there were some issues

by A TripAdvisor Member

Stayed in a suite. Very clean, nice room!

Dislikes:
Parking-but it is downtown.
Noise level-opt for a room NOT facing the street, the noise of cars all night echos downtown.
Free cookies and milk-ok, the cookies sucked. Stale, bland, like they bought them at the grocery store at half price the day before. This was a turn off, I would rather have something NOT offered than something that is offered and is totally a disappointment.

Maybe the worst service in Dallas?

by A TripAdvisor Member

I stayed at the Magnolia in April 2003 for the first time and was pleasantly suprised with the level of service provided by the Magnolia staff. Everyone from the a.m. Doorman and Valet to the Housekeepers were exceptional.
What a difference a year makes. The new Doorman and valets were clueless. It took the hotel van driver 20 mins to take me 4 blocks because he got lost and had the nerve to stick his hand out for a tip. The frontdesk personel was about the same....clueless.
The food from the club/room service tasted like it was microwaved twice.
Now the rooms are nice and cozy. They are always clean and fresh.
So, if you want service stay clear of the Magnolia. Otherwise an alright room.

GREAT anniversary weekend!

by A TripAdvisor Member

We decided to stay at the Magnolia the weekend of August 13-15, 2004 because we were coming "home" to Dallas to see Josh Groban in concert and wanted a swanky place to stay to celebrate our anniversary.

We were blown away by the Magnolia, and highly recommend it! The decor is awesome, exactly our style, and very clean and sleek. No flowery bedcovers anywhere! We had a one bedroom suite, with huge windows overlooking Neiman's, full kitchen, huge bath, etc. We spent alot of time just lounging in the room, and it was great. GREAT decor, clean, etc.

The lounge was great, too! We enjoyed playing pool and watching the flatscreen, enjoyed the complimentary drinks and food each evening, the cookies at night were WONDERFUL, fresh, and hot. The morning breakfast was much nicer than any other free buffet I had encountered, and we each had plenty to choose from and fill up on. (when we were there, they had various oatmeals, fruit, cottage cheese, yogurt, bagels and other breads with toaster, muffins, crossaints, OJ, coffee, milk, etc) We enjoyed casually going down with our complimentary paper, watching the Olympics on the sofas, and enjoying a cup of coffee and breakfast.

The 24 hour coffee and tea is nice, too ;) I didn't have to worry about making any in my room, though we had a maker, blender, toaster, etc all in there for our use.

The spa is beautiful, well equipped, with nice clean locker rooms.

We used the valet, they were prompt and VERY friendly each time. We got to know all of them. They had our car within minutes of me calling, and always had it upfront waiting on us. When we decided to use their shuttle to the West End, they had one available within 10 min of my calling, and he took us right there.

We enjoyed our visit, and since we only paid about $130 a night, we were *VERY* impressed with the service, quality, and amenities!
