Magnolia Houston, A Tribute Portfolio Hotel completed a three year renovation project which includes enhancements to the meeting and event spaces, rooms and suites as well as public areas. The revival of the Magnolia Houston pays homage to its roots as the former Post Dispatch building and rich history as an iconic Houston building. The inspiration for the design is rooted deeply in the building’s history as a newspaper/radio conglomerate and the eclectic pulse of Houston as a bustling city. The atmosphere embraces a “Texas Parlor” rich in community and southern ambiance with the nostalgic feel of an era gone by.
“The completion of this renovation is a major milestone for the Magnolia Houston and we are excited to show off the history of the building alongside a chic new design that will delight any size group, meeting, business and leisure travelers,” said Sarah Treadway, president of Magnolia Hotels.
As the former home of the Houston Post Dispatch newspaper and later the corporate office for Shell Oil Company, the hotel underwent extensive renovations, and this 1926 historic landmark is now one of Houston’s most distinctive properties.
Located in the heart of downtown, it is in the center of Houston’s rich arts and culture scene, renowned attractions, dining and eclectic shopping.
The Magnolia Houston embraces a sophisticated and inviting design and each of the 314 guest rooms and suites are thoughtfully appointed with the comforts of home and a modern flair, as well as access to the rooftop pool and 24-hour fitness center.
To celebrate the completion of this renovation, the Magnolia Houston is offering special incentives for groups throughout 2019 including a “Meet at the Magnolia” offer. Magnolia has proudly partnered with Marriott Hotels, allowing guests to experience the independence of Magnolia while enjoying Marriott Bonvoy benefits.
Magnolia Houston features more than 16,000 square feet of meeting spaces that truly embody the urban and eclectic vibe of downtown Houston.
The meeting and event spaces encompass the entire third floor and are ideally suited for maximum meeting productivity alongside gracious hospitality. Most of the spaces feature high ceilings, ample natural light and distinctive finishes and fixtures.
Whether it’s an elegant reception in one of the two Ballrooms or a corporate gathering, the property can accommodate groups of up to 300 guests. The Magnolia Lounge, a unique open concept space, emits a relaxing vibe and adorns its walls with inspiring artwork. This space, approximately 6,000 square feet, can accommodate up to 200 guests. Additional side rooms offer extra space for fun activities such as photo booths, kid’s room and more.
Additionally, the hotel boasts complimentary high-speed internet, state-of-the-art audiovisual and award-winning catering menus all handled by professional, friendly and experienced staff. The new design will surprise and delight guests.
