Hotel Magdalena Team is the BEST IN ATX!

The Hotel Magdalena is the best venue in Austin, Texas to work with! I've planned & designed many weddings and events at the Hotel Magdalena and Kori is so on top of answering every request you have. She is an absolute ROCKSTAR. I truly feel so taken care of planning with her and all of my clients have been so thankful for her in the planning process. Now on event day, the Magdalena team truly shines! Their service on event day is the best in the City! Each staff member is quick to make drinks, pass appetizers, and throughout dinner service. Don't hesitate to book you next event at the Hotel Magdalena, it will be the BEST!

The absolute best wedding venue!

Our wedding at Hotel Magdalena truly could not have been any better! Maddie, Kori, and Rylee on the sales team made sure every single detail was thought of and taken care of. My group bought out the entire property for the weekend and I can't emphasize enough how much I recommend doing this if you have a lot of people coming in from out of town! Every one of our guests raved about how fabulous the entire team at the hotel was - from the front desk, to the team in the restaurant, to every single person who worked during the day of the wedding, and all the housekeeping team as well, they were all incredible. It was the best day and it would not have been possible without this team. The way they flipped the event lawn from ceremony to reception for 135 people in literally 15 minutes was not to be believed!! Since the hotel has so many spaces and such beautiful design, we took lots of pictures all over the hotel which just made for fun wedding photos. No other venue will take care of you on the most important day of your life the way Hotel Magdalena will. I absolutely cannot recommend them enough!

Awesome team!

We had a terrific experience with Magdalena from start to finish planning our welcome dinner. They were extremely responsive, and helped us secure a room block at the hotel as well. Would 100% work with them again!
