Located in the Galleria area, the Granduca was a great base for our romantic weekend in Houston. It's medieval Italian themed decor and high quality service combined with a huge and beautifully appointed room made for a great stay. We stayed on Saturday night and got a great rate. I think this would also be a great hotel for a... More

Excellent service, nice amenities, awesome food. Great staycation. We had drinks at the bar, very quaint. Breakfast in the resturant was to die for, everything was so fresh. My husband and I are pretty good at messing up a hotel room but with twice a day maid service even we found it difficult. The turn down service was also a... More

Hotel is in a good location and the rooms well appointed and comfortable. Air-con a bit noisy though and woke me in the night when it kicked in. Main problem was a lack of staff in the public areas in the evening. Could see a range of tables with glasses / coffee cups etc through the day that did not... More

Did not stay here but had drinks and snacks on the veranda overlooking the pool. The food was very good and the service was excellent. The ambience is relaxing and elegant. Am going next week for high tea with a friend. The room where the high tea is held is beautifully decorated. The high tea is quite expensive at $51pp,... More

Arrived late, all staff pleasant. Check-in efficient. I was in a superior room, it was very nice and extremely comfortable.

So I booked this hotel online at their website. However they never e-mailed a confirmation. I had to try to remember where I booked, and follow up with a phone call. I did call, and they were pleasant and promised to e-mail a confirmation right out. It never showed up, even though I confirmed they had the correct e-mail address.... More

My husband and I were both born in the 70s, and this place is more the speed and style of people IN their 70s. His mother loved it; me, not so much. The whole place is over-the-top faux-talian, with decorative bedspreads (a big minus) and various tchotchkies, and a restaurant that is too stuffy for more than an occasional breakfast.... More
