“quietly elegant”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 25, 2013

This is a wonderful small hotel. The rooms are very nice and well furnished. The staff is amazing and they take great care of their guests. I don't think we ever opened a door ourselves anytime coming or going from the hotel! We sat outside for drinks and you would never guess you were in the city, very peaceful. The public areas were spotless. Whoever manages this hotel should be commended.

We travel to Houston a lot for business and fun and have stayed at several hotels but this is our new place, forever. We even saw a movie star at the pool, won't drop any names tho!!
The bed sheets were great and very soft also. We ate dinner at Cavour and had brunch there too and it was the best!!!!!
Love love this place. Will return again and again

Room Tip: Don't miss brunch!!!

My wife and I just wanted a private romantic night away and when we arrived we were upgraded to the presidential suite with provate access to the spa and pool and were treated like a king and queen! I highly reccomend it! We will remember our stay there for the rest of our lives! We plan on visiting there again!

During the last few years we have stayed at the Granduca every time we have gone to Houston. Each member of the staff is trained to remember your name and to greet you kindly by name every chance that they have, making you feel like royalty. The hotel/restaurant is quiet, small, spotless, and elegant, and looks like an Italian villa. The rooms are large, gorgeous and comfortable. Across the street is a medium sized shopping village with a variety of lovely restaurants and shops. By car, the Granduca is a few minutes away from the Galleria.

Spent two nights in this place on a business trip and really enjoyed the experience.

One problem though - the cab driver at the airport had no idea where it was. First time i have had to use a GPS for a driver!

Fantastic, courteous staff! Chic room decor. Comfortable accommodations. Walking distance to good restaurants and shopping. My company had a sales meeting at this hotel and the catered food was excellent. Quaint lobby and bar area. Very relaxing environment. Good security - need room key to use elevator. Turn down service and terrycloth robe. I needed to find a pharmacy at 10PM and the hotel chauffer drove me there in their Mercedes limo. I would definitely go back!

We stayed here while visiting family in Houston, so the hotel was not a destination for us; however, we found it very nice. It was a great location for us and the hotel was not only clean and nice, but interesting. The rooms are big and bed is comfy. I really enjoyed having a cocktail by the pool in the evening...it's a great garden-like private setting.
