Magnolia Hotel $750 “Romance Getaway” GIVEAWAY

magnolia hotel houston romance weekend giveaway exterior downtown

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.

Wedding couples can take their pick of the Magnolia Hotel’s two beautiful ballrooms, which can be configured a variety of different ways.

There is also the chic and relaxing Magnolia Lounge, a unique 6,000-square-foot open-concept space adorned with inspiring artwork, which can accommodate up to 200 guests. Host all of your visiting guests at this exceptional Houston hotel, located in the center of Houston’s rich arts and culture scene, just steps away from renowned attractions, limitless dining options, eclectic shopping and bustling nightlife. And take advantage of the Magnolia Hotel’s smaller event spaces, private dining options, fabulous cuisine and superb service, for your rehearsal dinner, bridal shower and/or engagement celebration!
