I loved everyone I had the pleasure of working with for my wedding . Danielle is amazing and made sure I didn't have anything to worry about the entire weekend! She was always there if we needed her, like when we ran into billing issues with the front desk and less than an hour later everything had been resolved. Danielle also made sure to stop by the bridal room multiple times durning the day to make sure we were doing ok and didn't need anything, on top of making sure the ceremony and reception site were set up! Everything turned out exactly like I imagined and Danielle was with us every step of the way and we are so thankful for her. Between Danielle and every other person at the Magnolia who helped with the wedding planning process and the day of, all of the stress and anxiety was erased and I had no question if my vision was going to turn out.

We had our reception in the ballroom and it turned out wonderfully. Kelsey Ray is the most responsive person I've ever met and put my mind at ease no matter how many emails I sent her! The food was outstanding and our guests were thrilled with all of the options. It is so nice to find a venue that offers buffet, plated or stations for the same price! We opted for the plated and it was perfect. Everyone's food came out quickly and hot--not lukewarm like I've had at other places.

Even when it came to paying the Magnolia was great. We worked through Tambra to make our payments and she too was incredibly responsive and made the whole process so easy!

I cannot wait to return for our complimentary stay for our anniversary next year!

The Magnolia was a wonderful host hotel for our wedding party and guests. They hosted our rehearsal dinner in their downstairs lounge, and the space/decor worked perfectly for our group! There was plenty of space, couches, a relaxing waterfall feature, and a pool table for use during the cocktail hour. The food was excellent, and the staff were very attentive and flexible when we wanted to hang around after the conclusion of the event. Also, the concierge was extremely helpful, lining up transportation for our guests to the wedding ceremony venue 4 days before the event occurred! Finally, the breakfast included with the room fee was excellent, and provided a casual space for us to mingle with guests the morning after our wedding.

Everything was fantastic. Kelsey was on top of everything and we had a wedding where we spent all of our time enjoying the evening. We worried about nothing, but because everything was taken care of.

Apparently, we even had three guys attempt to wedding crash, but the staff spotted them immediately and took care of the situation.

And many of our guest stayed at the hotel and had nothing but wonderful things to say about the rooms and the staff.

My husband and I wanted our special evening to go off without a hitch! Like any other couple, we were very nervous about everything falling into place. Kelsey (the wedding coordinator at The Magnolia) assured us on multiple occasions that everything would be fine. Our day came and Kelsey was there every moment to ease our minds, take care of every detail, arrange everything, take care of vendors - all while seeming to act as though she has no stress on her plate. Our event was timed perfectly and every detail was tended to. Kelsey is way ahead of her league and I strongly recommend her to host any function. I undoubtedly recommend this venue and everything that it encompasses.

Kelsey and her staff we a pleasure to work with and made the whole experience enjoyable and stress free. Kelsey was a huge help in setting up personalized decorations in the ballroom and the event/hotel/bar staff took great care of all my guests during the reception and also at Harry's Bar after the reception ended. I wish I could do it all over again...wouldn't change a thing. Thanks again!

Our May wedding was absolutely wonderful. Jessica was incredible - accomodating us in every way. The Lounge setting is unique, intimate, modern and chic and provides a perfect setting for an intimate event. Jessica was helpful and patient, and on the day of the wedding - everything flowed smoothly and we didn't have to think about a thing. The food and service were impeccable and though we were on a budget - we got a gorgeous day for a great price. Our out of town guests raved about the boutique hotel and the complimentary breakfast (full on hot breakfast buffet) is a money saver for those who have to travel. If you're looking for a chic downtown wedding, the folks at Magnolia will take great care of you.

My husband and I LOVED the Magnolia Hotel Club! From the food to the service to the space to Miss Kate Kelly everything was absolutely above and beyond what I could have ever imagined. If you are looking for a fun downtown boutique atmosphere, look no further. For the amazing price we received the Magnolia included everything we wanted. From adding gravy and chips and salsa to the menu, to setting up all the votives, to making sure until the very end that we were happy, Miss Kate Kelly really made this a perfect event for us. I couldn't imagine a more perfect wedding! Thank you, for making such a happy start to a happy marriage!

The Magnolia Hotel and the onsite catering manager, Kate Kelly, did the BEST job for our wedding! We had a small wedding (40 people) in the Club Room (it has a "water feature" which is beautiful). They did the ceremony, cocktail hour, dinner and reception. We did a plated dinner and everything tasted wonderful and the serving staff were very attentive to all the guests and could not have been friendlier. For a downtown wedding the price was VERY reasonable! As the majority of our guests were from out of town, the location was great and they gave every guest a discounted rate. I did not have to worry about a thing as Kate was so professional and definitely took care of all the fine details! If you are looking to NOT drive yourself crazy with all that has to be done for a wedding I suggest you go to the Magnolia=)

I couldn't have asked for a better group of people to work with for my wedding. Everyone from the front desk, to the bell hops, to the event staff were consummate professionals for the whole time we worked together. They were so very accommodating with all of my special requests and never once told me no or acted like I was putting them out. I would highly recommend the Magnolia to anyone looking to have an event. They were fantastic!

Everything was excellent and the staff was very professional, friendly, polite, and accommodating. The only negative feedback we had from our guests was they had to ask for cake because it was not being passed out and there were not enough pieces cut from the sheet cake in advance. Also, we did not see a veggie taco in the action stations we had planned out ahead of time.

If we could do the whole wedding over again, we would. The Magnolia was awesome!

As soon as we finished our visit at the Magnolia last summer, we knew that we had found our perfect reception venue. Though the food/beverage minimum was a little higher than we had initially wanted to spend, the service and experience we got at Magnolia made it all worth it. Kelsey was so responsive to us through the process and was so helpful when I had questions. She was unable to attend our reception, but her assistant was super attentive throughout the reception and made sure everything went smoothly All of our out of town guests stayed at the Magnolia, and I heard nothing but positive reviews from them about their experience at the hotel. The staff was incredible -- especially when a monsoon hit! I don't even know how many different Magnolia staffers came outside to meet our guests, and then our bridal party bus, with umbrellas to make sure everyone made it between the hotel and the ballroom without getting soaked. Thanks Magnolia, we can't wait to come back soon!

Overall, I was very pleased with the Magnolia. They were very helpful throughout the whole process. The only issues I ran into were with some of the rules of the hotel, but they worked with me as well as they could. Very beautiful venue

We had the ceremony, reception and guest lodging all at the Magnolia Hotel. They did a fantastic job! The space is recently updated and the ballroom is just perfect. They are lower priced than most of the other boutique hotels downtown, but you're still paying for a downtown wedding. I'd absolutely recommend the space to anyone.

We held our wedding reception for approximately 150 people. It was absolutely wonderful. The staff was professional, friendly, and well organized. The venue is beautiful and the food was spectacular. People who attended the reception are STILL talking about it! We would highly recommend this location for any similar event.

We are usually not ones to post bad reviews because we understand that things can go wrong. However, we had soooooo many things go wrong with the planning of our reception and the reception itself that we feel the need to warn others (when you consider how meaningful and expensive a wedding is). Here’s a summary of the problems: We had a gift stolen during the reception (they checked the security tapes and found this out). They did give us a credit for the cost of the gift but our catering person never called us to apologize. They charged us for $495 worth of dessert that was never served (they will be paying us back). Our catering manager made numerous mistakes while planning the wedding and we kept having to double check and correct her work--she sent us an estimate with the wrong food choices, her final count for meals was wrong, and she was going to charge the wrong credit card. Even when we would correct her work, she sometimes failed to make the proper changes. We ended up purposefully not giving her our slideshow DVD that we wanted played during dinner because she kept saying (verbally and on the Event Planning Form) that it was to played during the cocktail reception. The room was not set-up as we had discussed and requested—they left fluorescent tube lights on when they said they would not be on, they did not have tablecloths on tables in the reception room, they did not set up seating in the reception room as requested, and they ACTUALLY CHANGED THE CONFIGURATION OF THE HEAD TABLE WITHOUT ASKING US (and it made it so we had to sit across from each other instead of next to each other—it’s hard to explain because it was the weirdest setup I’ve ever seen.). We were willing to excuse some of these things but the “straw that broke the camel’s back” was when we found out a gift was stolen and they didn’t serve the dessert we paid for. We sent a letter to the Director of Catering to complain and he was very responsive and apologetic. He offered to put us up in the hotel for a special event if we wanted. Still, if we had to do it over again, we would have chosen a different venue. There are plenty of other venues in Denver.

Dear Jon,

Thank you for taking the time to compile this review. Your review presents us with an opportunity to enhance and improve our guest services. I'm happy to hear that our Director of Catering reached out to you and attempted to right the situation, and that you have been reimbursed for the missing dessert, but the issue remains that there were some serious communication problems when it came time to execute the plans you had developed for your special day.

We hope that the issues you experienced with us did not detract from the importance of the event, and I'd like you to know your review and the complications it highlights have been shared with current staff, as to avoid any repeat performances. While it is true there are several event locations in Denver, we are extremely grateful you chose Magnolia, and we thank you for sharing your experience with us.

Regards,
Ryan

I just had my wedding at this venue. They charge you 100$ if you use your debit card for your room. So it frustrating for your out of town guests when they feel like there over charged. It's 30$ a day to valet which is crap if your a guest are coming for the weekend. The front desk was very unhelpful to the point I wanted to scream at them. Also my room was hot I'm talking 80 when when it was set to 50. It was very uncomfy and the desk did care. I don't sugest this place to stay. But the food was good just the staff very unhelpful and rude.
