A time to remember

Step back in time and stay a while

For some, it’s the experience. Rooms with every comfort considered. Menus to linger over. A grand ballroom for celebrating. Others are drawn to the history. Architecture that tells a story. New details to discover on every visit.

For nearly a century, the building on the corner of Washington Avenue and N. 7th Street has been a place where people gather to rest and relax, find inspiration, and celebrate. We’d love for you to join us.

The Hotel

Magnolia founders Chip and Joanna Gaines, together with AJ Capital, have re-envisioned this historic building to create a hospitality experience with 33 guest rooms, dining, over 6,600 square feet of event space, a rooftop terrace, and a retail shop featuring exclusive Magnolia-designed Hotel 1928 merchandise.

Step Back in Time
Eat & Drink

Within Hotel 1928 are two distinct restaurants, each with its own carefully-created menu and surroundings that reflect the fun-loving, yet sophisticated, spirit of the times. Whether you join us for a drink on the rooftop or enjoy a meal, it will be an experience to remember.

Be nourished and merry
