I believe this to be the most beautiful hotel in Houston. The suites are huge and the staff is extremely attentive. The Hotel prides itself on its customer service, and it shows. The Granduca is my favorite place to stay when I visit Houston or Austin.

I have stayed here before and thought I would try it again. The rooms are large, which is nice, but the decor and quality are just not up to par with the way the hotel positions itself. I had a very unpleasant experience at the hands of one of the front desk members. I won't describe it, but I left the hotel feeling publicly humiliated and shocked that any front line employee, in an ostensibly upper end hotel, could have acted that way. It is telling that there is no general manager name or contact info on the hotel website. I filled out a form on the site asking for a callback - nothing. I LinkedIn to someone listed as Guest Experience Manager, but got no reply. After a couple of weeks I repeated the message to the RVP of Guest Operations again on LinkedIn. Two more weeks - no reply .... Corporate culture is set from the top down. In my opinion, this hotel is not in the same class as some others in Houston.

Almost perfect, except for one thing. First, gorgeous hotel and staff. Huge rooms, well kept. And they are stocked full of amenities. Only reason I gave it "very good" instead of "excellent" was because the rooms don't have deadbolts on the doors. Meaning, the only extra security is just the little flips metal hotel locks. Quite surprised that a five star hotel wouldn't have deadbolts in the doors. Otherwise, perfect. But an important aspect for safety that's missing

Elderly family members came in from out of town for one night. We chose this hotel, as it came recommended by better reviews than those chain hotels in the same area, (i.e. Choice, IHG) Bad decision. Rude employees. One 89-yr old guest was using a walker, did not want to draw attention to himself, so did not request ADA room. Was put on a high floor as far away from the elevator as possible (walker!) and none of the light switches, nor the coffee maker, were working. They also refused to honor the price they were given upon reserving the room, stating well sorry, that was wrong. For $500 that is unacceptable, cannot recommend.

The hotel is wonderful. We were helped by Margarita at the front desk who made sure we had help with everything we needed. The setting is beautiful, and the food and drink served by the bar and restaurant are first class. Will be back again.

The afternoon tea was good, with fresh little sandwiches and pretty good pastries. The scone was flaky and buttery, but the tea itself (when the server finally came around to serve it) was flavorless. So, though the food was good, the service was not

Used to stay here often. Put them on hiatus the last year given issues with service and, frankly, cost. I left after a few nights this time due to cost and the absence of heat in the lobby/bar area. The bar/lounge is super comfortable but was literally unusable this time. Granted it was in the 20's in Houston that week, but with two double doors in the main lobby which is adjacent to the bar/lounge, it was absurdly cold. There are one-inch gaps in the front doors letting in all the cold. Were I a desk attendant, I would have refused to work in such cold. Restaurant and bar are excellent. Food is excellent and staff is friendly. I would counsel the chef not to freeze his panna cotta, however. Ever present problem with getting the mini-bar replenished. Business center is limited to a couple of computers and a printer. I always have to ask the front desk for help in scanning documents. They always go out of their way to help. Bottom line, despite a great location, excellent comfortable atmosphere, great restaurant and staff, the price works against this place.

We had an enjoyable stay during a business trip to Texas with very nice staff members welcoming us. The restaurant and bar menus were great and the staff very fast, friendly and guest oriented, a big thanks to Mrs. Marta who provided us with a delicious dinner on the beautiful terrace.

Carlos did an excellent job of taking care of our needs (ably assisted by Calvin). Sandwiches, sweets, and tea were very good and enjoyed by all in our party of three. Service was excellent without being intrusive or hovering. Loved the atmosphere looking out on the back landscaping and pool.

I really loved staying at Granduca! Yes, I only gave it 4 stars because the furnishings were pretty tired and worn, however, the place was super clean! We stayed the 4th July weekend and it seemed like we were one of about 5 guest rooms that occupied the place. On the 4th of July we were almost the only people at the pool. It was great to practically have the place to ourselves. We ate breakfast one morning and it was very good!! All of the food was fresh and we had a delicious pot of coffee. Everything that we ordered from the bar was well balanced and refreshing. By the pool I had Aperol Spritz’s and they were perfect! They offer a yummy watermelon caprese and a very good fruit cup. The bartenders and servers were all super friendly. We stayed in a suite that had a kitchenette. We didn’t need/use it but it was nice to have a refrigerator for some bottled water. I was a bit disappointed that when my husband went down to the breakfast area he ordered a pot of coffee to take to the room but he was told there were not enough coffee pots to take one to the room. I thought that was interesting because as I said occupancy was super low. There were only about 5 cars in the parking lot.
