    The red neon pegasus that adorns the top of the green metal building can be seen from almost anywhere in town, and it has become an iconic symbol of downtown Dallas. The building is over two dozen stories tall, and was one of the most impressive buildings long before the other much large buildings were built. Even still, this one stands out among the rest.

    From the moment you walk inside it is clear that this is no ordinary old building. The decor is very art deco, but it doesn't try too hard. There are modern amenities and designs everywhere. The lobby is connected by stairs to a second-floor restaurant/bar/meeting area, and it was designed to wow its visitors. When I visited I was was one of the only people in the area, but I could easily see this place bustling with people on a busy night. Even still, it seems it would retain its cozy and comfortable atmosphere.

    The only thing I didn't really like was the elevator ride. I don't have a phobia of elevators, but something about this particular one reminded me that I was in a very old building. Still, that wasn't enough to turn me off to the experience of being in this very impressive hotel. I just think that when I stay I'll probably choose a floor near the ground level or just take the stairs.

    As a fan of the Jazz Age and Art Deco style, the Magnolia’s decor speaks to my sensibilities. The boutique hotel lives within a fabulous historic building that’s been thoughtfully modernized. First floor space is at a premium, offering a small lounge and check-in. However, the second floor atrium is lovely and expanse (with private meeting/event rooms). I had a suite there in the past and while it wasn’t very big, it was definitely chic. Five of us relaxed comfortably in the living room and the king bedroom was spacious enough to move around freely. Though the hotel itself has plenty to offer, the Magnolia’s biggest draw surely is its primo Commerce Street location. You’re right in the thick of the action, day and night with the flagship Neiman Marcus and a number of restaurants and nightclubs in walking (or stumbling) distance.

    I didn’t learn this until recently, but, the reason that the Pegasus is prominently featured throughout Dallas is that in 1921, when the Magnolia Hotel building was erected it was the headquarters of Magnolia Petroleum Company, the predecessor of Mobil Oil, and they wanted people everywhere to be able to find the building so they put Pegasus, the flying red horse, on top of the Magnolia Building. I like how they’ve added a touch of modern chic to the classic sophistication that comes with history, there’s the original mail slot, the elevators have all the original brass and when they did some renovations a few years ago they found and framed the original blue prints. The location is very close to the convention center and they have a shuttle that will take you anywhere within a small radius but really, you don’t need to leave, there’s an attached Starbucks, business stations with printers, a fully equipped fitness center, a spa that’s got grates on the window so you can be a part of the busy city without being in it and there’s complimentary breakfast, happy hours and milk and cookies so if you’re too busy to explore, you can still have a great stay.

    I always get the 2 bedroom suite with living room & kitchen, which is spacious & clean. The staff is so helpful. My favorite thing about this hotel is the complimentary fresh, hot cookies & milk buffet every night! Great location if attending event at the convention center.
