“A real 5 Star experience”
Reviewed July 15, 2013

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.

This is a great hotel within walking distance to lots of shops and restarants. It is a quick cab ride to the Galleria as well. Nice pool and hot tub, excellent service. Love the rooms with kichens and seperate bedroom area. Highly recommend this property!

Room Tip: get a room overlooking the pool

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.

Wow...this has to be the best brunch in Houston! My husband took me here for our one year wedding anniversary. The spread was incredible and the service was outstanding as was the ambiance. This boutique hotel exudes luxury and elegance. I left there telling my husband that I would like to spend a weekend at Granduca!

My sister and I stayed at the Granduca the night of June 20th. We had stayed there in 2012 and were so impressed! Even more so this time. The staff are unbelievably helpful and pleasant. Special mention must go to Tess who seemed to always be there when we needed him, Moussa at the front desk, David who drove us to our sister's in the evening and Justin at the bar who is a fantastic bartender! The car was complimentary and really helped as we didn't want to drive after drinking wine with dinner.
The suite was lovely with a balcony and masses of room. The bed was very comfortable and everything was clean and elegant. Next to the Taj Palace in Mumbai, this is my favorite hotel so far!

Room Tip: We were on the 5th floor and it was very quiet.

We booked a smaller suite, but were upgraded to a huge space with a full kitchen, seating area, bar and balcony. The separate bedroom had the largest walk in closet I've ever seen in a hotel and a deluxe large bathroom. Thanks for an amazing stay and for impressing the heck out of my mother when she visited the room. The staff was extremely helpful and attentive.

My wife and I spent the weekend in a suite at Hotel Granduca and were very disappointed. While a nice hotel, not even close to being a five star property. The accomodations were average, the showerhead was covered in lime, the drain was slow, the carpet was worn, the food service staff were slow, and the hallways are tile making them very noisy. If you're used to Motel6 (as it seems some of the other reviewers are) then you will like this hotel. But if you are used to 4 and 5 star hotels, this one will come up short.
