“High End Hotel at a reasonable price”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 9, 2012

I like nice hotels. I like hotels where they go out of their way to notice details, call us by name, give us chocolates and "turn down service", provide fluffy bathrobes, etc. The staff at this hotel were all friendly and made us feel welcome. The suite was large and comfortable. The whole hotel was attractive and somewhat "grand" - high doors, dark wood, wide hallways, etc. But it was also pleasant and not too "stuffy". I needed this hotel because I have to cook for my family (food allergies) - and it was a pleasure to use the small kitchen. OK, there were a few utensils missing to make cooking easy.... but it had quality pots and pans and really everything we needed. (The microwave doubles as a convection oven if you really, really need an oven). I think most people who stay here don't really try to cook as much as we needed to. I really felt that this hotel provided service and comfort equal to the best hotels I have stayed at.... Ritz Carlton, Four Seasons, etc.... only we had twice as much room for 1/2 the price. I would DEFINITELY stay here again without hesitation.

I love the Granduca in Houston. We have family that live just a few minutes away - so this hotel has become like a home away from home for me. From the moment I walk through the front door - everyone is concerned that everything is perfect during my stay. From the front door throughout the hotel - everyone is extremely friendly and helpful. The suites are very large and comfortable. Most importantly for me, it has always been very quiet during my stay. The hotel is beautiful and for me has that boutique feel. Another plus for me are the shops and restaurants within a few minutes walking distance.

Room Tip: I have asthma that is set off due to allergies to animals. I was told that one floor is set aside f...

It is indeed a luxury hotel. It looks pricey for Houston but considering location, quality of accommodations, quality and abundance of service it is really inexpensive. It is great for a romantic get away as it was in my case.

The Hotel Granduca is a beautiful 5 star luxury hotel in Houston that is one of “The Leading Hotels of the World”. It looks and feels like a large Italian Villa that was dropped into the middle of big city Houston – elegant and luxurious in every way. We stayed in the Granduca Suite which was absolutely perfect with a beautiful and spacious sitting room, well equipped kitchen, lovely and comfortable bedroom, walk in closet, and nice sized bathroom with top notch amenities. While there, we enjoyed an excellent dinner in the Restaurant Cavour. Service was outstanding for dinner and throughout our stay. Everyone was extremely friendly and over the top ready to provide assistance in any way possible. The patio area by the pool is lovely and is a perfect spot to enjoy a cocktail when the weather is nice. The indoor piano bar is also great and the live music in the evening makes it even more special. The location cannot be beat since it is within walking distance of all the shops and restaurants in Uptown Park, and only a short drive away from the awesome Galleria shopping mall as well as Memorial Park and downtown Houston. This would be a perfect place to stay for anyone visiting the Houston area and wanting to sample some of the best this city has to offer. We live in Houston and were simply looking for a special place to celebrate our 37th wedding anniversary. We were thrilled to discover this elegant and romantic hotel. It is expensive, but well worth the price, and is a perfect place to celebrate a special event. We will be back!

I typically go to Houston several times per year on business. This time around, my usual hotel was booked, so I registered at the Granduca at the suggestion of a friend. I am usually hesitant to select a place that does not have a name that I recognize, but in this case, I am glad that I trusted my friend. The service was elegant without seeming snobby, the facilities were beautiful, and my suite was top-notch, well-appointed and clean as a whistle.

I had a little downtime on my last day, so I sat by the outdoor pool and did some work on my computer. Having finished, I then grabbed a glass of wine from the bar, went over to the billiards room, turned ESPN on the huge TV and shot pool for about an hour. While there, several staff members popped their heads into the room to make sure that I didn't need anything. I had numerous similarly pleasant exchanges with the bell staff, bar staff and cleaning staff while I was there. It's very rare to see such consistent, well-mannered behavior from a hotel staff.

The Granduca's convenience to nice restaurants and shops (particularly at Uptown Park) is a bonus, but really cannot be the feature reason for booking...after all, who wants to leave such a great place? By the way, if you decide to leave and you need to get someplace local like the Galleria, ask the staff if they will take you in the hotel car...much nicer than a cab!

I will definitely be back.

What a beautiful hotel. This was my second time to stay here and it is my favorite hotel in Houston. We stayed in a 2 bedroom suite and loved how perfect the space was. The people working here could not be any friendlier or more helpful. Perfect location.

We had the ultimate pleasure of staying at Hotel Granduca on our 5th wedding anniversary. My company had a one night's stay in a suite as a prize at our holiday party, which I won. We are already planning to stay at this hotel in the future. The hotel is beautiful inside and out. The staff is very accommodating and extremely pleasant. They all go out of their way to make you feel very special.

Room Tip: Pool view rooms are amazing.
