I am here again in Houston at the Granduca and if anything it has only gotten better! So relaxing and centrally located.Shopping is close and now that I know the area highway access is so easy.Come sit on the back patio and have a delicious drink. People here are eager to serve. Al ways with pleasent smiling and genuinely happy to assist. Try it you will love it. I never like to leave; but I get to look forward to a return visit!

The moment you drive up everyone is there to help. The hotel is beautiful with an Italian decor. The rooms are well furnished with balcony doors that are wood and well kept. Bathrooms are large and beds are very comfortable. Very quiet. I highly recommend.

Room Tip: Inside courtyard is best

The hotel is great, I have stayed at various hotels in Houston, but this one is spectacular. It's cosy and private, not too big or impersonal, the facilities are great, the service is top class and location is also very good uptown, you can walk to a whole area of bars and restaurants and shops. I loved it!

Yes, the pool area was quiet and that's why I liked it.The suite was very elegant and the staff friendly and willing to do anything for you. The breakfasts were wonderful. I felt like a Queen. So close to the Galleria and several shopping complexes. I could easily live there.

Room Tip: Choose a suite with living room and small kitchen. Very restful and spacious.

Stayed here for weekend. Wanted to relax by pool and eat good food. Tried to order and bottle of wine and took over 30 to 45mins to get. The attendants did not seem to know what they were doing. We ordered food and it was bad. Fries greasy and not good. Pool is boring, very quiet and no music. Front staff is also very rude! We were locked out of our room and could not get in. When asked for help they took a long time. Unfortunately, it wasn't a good experience for us this time around.
