I am forced to write a review for the first time in my life because of the scam this hotel is operating under. This is NOT a five star hotel. Repeat, this is not a five star hotel even though it ranks itself as such. It is more on par with Staybridge Suites. We arrived evacuating from five days of hurricane Laura recovery after living for days without power and water. After this ordeal, we were looking forward to the rest, relaxation, and overall luxury experience offered by a five-star hotel, but unfortunately, we were completely led astray. All the major rating websites including Expedia, TripAdvisor, and American Express platinum travel assured us that it is a "luxury, boutique, 5-star hotel", but I am here to tell you that this is a lie. Upon arrival, we were met with an ill-lit building with a small motel-like sign, which made it hard to find. The valet area consists of a driveway which is better suited for a small house. The lobby is without exaggeration only about 40 x 20 feet. The decor is cheap and straight out of Kirkland's or TJ Maxx. For example, there were four medieval knights armors taken from a halloween store as the centerpiece of the lobby. Overall, the whole hotel is brown and yellow with dirty carpets, molded balconies, and small elevators. Our suite, if it can be called such, had similar tasteless decor complete with a dishwasher and stove--unheard of for a luxury hotel. There was not even a mini-bar or snacks in the room. We were told that the suite slept 3-4 people, but when we asked for a cot, they charged us an extra $35 for an extremely uncomfortable, lumpy twin mattress! Furthermore, we had called them earlier to let them know that we would be arriving at 9:30 pm. We were told that they were keenly expecting us. No one ever mentioned that no food or drinks would be available for the night and that all their services close at 8 o'clock in the name of COVID-19. A "five-star hotel" with nothing to offer to eat or drink to guests arriving late i.e only 9:30! So we stayed in the hotel that night and had to order Uber Eats instead. After we made a request to cancel our reservation and called AMEX travel, the best they could offer was to let us go the next morning after a specific request from an AMEX employee. We were not refunded for the night we stayed, even though we made it clear upon arrival that we were not interested in staying at the hotel. We paid a large sum of money under the guise that this is a five star hotel with the luxury accommodations that are associated with that ranking. Look closely at the pictures online and you'll know that this entire hotel is an artifice designed to take your money.

Probably my favorite hotel in Houston! This is a hidden gem in Uptown Galleria of Houston and I'm very happy to have discovered it. The pool area is very cozy and the cabanas are free on first come, first served basis. They have a great selection of drinks and food. We ended up getting the meat platter and pizza. It filled us up quite nicely. The staff went beyond my expectations to accommodate us. We stayed in one of the larger suites with a full kitchen. They provided us with all the cooking pans and pots. They also went out of their way to find me some butter for my meal at a late hour. I'm very thankful for that because it was an important detail of my meal. My favorite part was how peaceful it was by the pool. You can definitely have a peaceful day here with all the other respectful people. Will be back!

Stayed one night at the Hotel Granduca and expect I will not stay there again. While a relatively minor issue, because of how it was handled - see that the employees are not empowered to take care of the customers. Package I booked included vouchers for breakfast ($23 per person). When looking at my bill after checkout I noticed I only had one voucher. I asked the lady at front desk about it, she said I only showed one person on the booking so I only received one voucher. Had my wife with me so thought it would be an "easy" fix. She said she could not fix, so she went and got someone from the back that might be able to help. All I got from her was the same explanation - no offer to help. Left it with the lady at the front desk saying she would call me that day after discussing with a manager. Never heard anything back. Little shocking that they would treat a customer this way over a $23 credit that was part of the package.

From the valet to checking out this is a wonderful hotel. The rooms are large, clean and up to date. Everyone was attentive, friendly and knowledgeable. The bar is terrific and Restaurant Cavour is outstanding. we had breakfast in the restaurant and found it excellent starting with the illy coffee.

This wasn't our 1st stay at GranDuca and were extremely dissatisfied this time. Upon check-in, we were initially told we were upgraded to a suite. Though a suite, it was an accessible room on the first floor by the elevators and the noise from the lobby bar. Additionally, there was a very prominent low level noise which we can only describe as mimicking a cruise ship engine. We were not going to be able to sleep in this room. We asked the front desk agent to be moved and were told there was only a smoking room and a room with 2 twin beds (I've worked on/in hotels for over 20 years and can't believe there's a luxury hotel with twin beds) which wouldn't work for us, especially for the price we paid. We were later notified by a note under our door that a room with a king was available after a late check-out. This room was satisfactory though the pillows and linens were not that of an upscale hotel caliber so resulted in a poor nights sleep. We went to the bar to have a drink since we couldn't stand the noise in our room. We sat down and we thought the bus person was cleaning the table in front of us but after waiting more than 5 minutes was asked by the same person if we would like a drink. We both asked for dirty martinis but the bar didn't know how to make a proper dirty martini. I highly recommend higher quality olives juice, olives and Blue Cheese for your Martini's, they were frankly disgusting. My wife asked the bartender 3 times to modify her drink to her satisfaction without avail so we gave up and didn't finish our drinks. The bartenders and servers were not attentive either, conversing with a couple sitting at the bar. We felt like we were distracting them from their discussion. Our first experience at this property was several years ago and exceptional but this experience has scarred us. We'll choose to stay at a Westin or other boutique hotel in the future.
