Employer Profile

Get Away to the Heart of the Lone Star State.

The 4-Diamond Magnolia Houston, A Tribute Portfolio Hotel, was originally the home of the Houston Post Dispatch newspaper. Later it became the corporate office for Shell Oil Company, until the downtown Houston hotel reopened in March 2003 after extensive renovation. Magnolia's restoration has re-established the 1926 historic landmark as one of Houston's most distinct properties.

The Magnolia Hotel Houston is housed in the historic former Post Dispatch Building. The 254,000 square-foot, 22-story building was built in 1926 and hailed as one of the most impressive office buildings in the state. The boutique hotel in Houston opened in March 2003 after a full renovation, re-establishing the property as one of the area's most distinctive structures. In 2009, the hotel was renovated to offer all new common areas, a new lounge, newly designed ballroom, and executive suites on the 22nd floor.

A highlight of the 2009 renovation is the Ross Sterling Presidential Suite: a luxurious suite on the hotel's Penthouse floor that has accommodated numerous celebrities. The Ross Sterling suite features a grand dining room with a black and white checkerboard floor and a modern stainless and granite kitchen; a classy lounge with mod seating arrangements, flat-screen TVs and one-of-a-kind accessories and decor; and, a plush bedroom with enhanced bedding package and private bathroom. This boutique hotel suite also has the option of adding a second adjoining bedroom for guests who desire more space. 

The Magnolia Hotel Houston just completed another renovation in June 2019. The full renovation of the property included all public and meeting spaces, Lounge restaurant, guestrooms, suites, and the Ross Sterling Presidential Suite. The Lounge has also rolled out an updated menu of food and drink pairings.
