In the heart of Dallas, Magnolia Hotel is a big-city hotel with the look and vibe of a boutique crash pad. Easy to spot in downtown’s 1922 Beaux-Arts Magnolia Building (Dallas’ first skyscraper), the vast lobby feels grand but modern, with heavy columns, a glass-and-wood staircase and central banquettes. Upstairs, guestrooms come Texas sized, and all have free WiFi, 32” flatscreen TVs, large work areas, tea and coffee making facilities, mini fridges and deep soaking tubs. On the second-floor, the Lounge is equal parts restaurant, bar, games room and social club. Start your day here with the free hot breakfast, and don’t miss the evening wine and beer reception, followed by a pre-bedtime spread of milk and cookies.
