The Magnolia Hotel Houston is not just one of our favorite downtown venues for sophisticated, cosmopolitan weddings…it’s also the sponsor of this week’s fabulous $750 “Romance Getaway” GIVEAWAY!
Nestled in the heart of downtown Houston, just across the street from stately Christ Church Cathedral, the Magnolia Hotel blends Houston history with contemporary elegance in a one-of-a-kind setting. Major renovations to the hotel, completed earlier this year, take their design inspiration from the building’s history as a former newspaper/radio conglomerate. A 1926 historic landmark, this Marriott Tribute Portfolio property is the former home of the Houston Post Dispatch newspaper, and, later, the corporate offices of Shell Oil Co. Today, you’ll find a “Texas Parlor” atmosphere at the Magnolia, with an “ink-inspired” palette of dark charcoals and deep indigos contrasted with gleaming wood surfaces and distinctive ironwork.
