The Magnolia Hotel
The Magnolia Hotel is a restoration project in the existing Post Dispatch Building located at the corner of Texas and Fannin in Houston, Texas. The building was completed in 1926 and was originally an office building for the Houston Post Dispatch newspaper.
The project involves converting this structure into a new four star quality hotel with 314 guestrooms, 7,000 square feet of conference and space for a full service restaurant. In order to form a new lobby and meeting space, a three story addition was required adjacent to the main building creating a new three story atrium lobby with function space surrounding this area. Over the years, the interior spaces had been drastically altered and required complete rebuilding for a hotel.
However, the exterior windows and stone facade are being restored to their original condition.
The building is expected to be on the National Historical Register.
