We found the 300 + hotel in a quit section in downtown Houston..(It wasn't lost) We were surprised at the hotel..the room are outstanding..bed linen is 1st class..Coffee in the morning on ever floor..Not the powered coffee..The Shuttle service is outstanding..The SUV with a pair of Horns on the front..This is a class hotel with class service..U can't go wrong..

Room Tip: Lower floor are less money..But what ever you get..it's worth the money..

My wife and I enjoyed our stay here with very friendly staff and a nice coffee / tea setup each morning. I would have been nice if it was available in the afternoon. Comfortable beds and a good veiw of park. I found the location convienant to the metro train for getting to / from my downtown office.

My husband and I recently visited hotel Za Za in Houston for our 17 year anniversary and the entire experience from start to finish was superb in every way. We met Shane and Mary first, and they were so very sincerely professional and helpful, making everything checking in seamless. We have stayed at many nice hotels and hotel Za Za is now at the top of list. The 12th floor called the magnificent seven was where we stayed in the "Rock Star" room. Simply incredible, clean, spectacular view of the entire city and enormous. If you plan a trip to Houston and want the pampering elegant experience of a lifetime stay at THE Hotel Za Za! You will not want to leave and that's precisely why so many folks we met were frequently returning guests. We can't wait to come back soon! Thanks so much to all of you who made our stay so perfect!

How can you even begin to explain the superb customer service at ZaZa!
From our first interaction with Rida (concierge) to pool bar staff all went out of their way to ensure you had a pleasant stay. The rooms are spacious with wonderful views of the park.
I have to admit that one of my favorite amenities was the shuttle service, all the drivers especially Daniel and Faseel were wonderful! Plus the added incentive of driving thru Houston with "Longhorns" on the front of your SUV was a no miss!
Don't pass this one up....take a trip to Houston just to spend some time at ZaZa!

I have now stayed at the Houston Zaza 6 times over the last year. They never disappoint. The rooms are very well appointed and the little extras like coffee in the morning, water by the bed at night, fruit in the work out room, don't go unnoticed. The staff are all extremely professional and quick to help. We love the staff at the pool that offer such great service. Thanks to Raul for our last visit. The shuttle service is so helpful and the drivers have become friends. We are true zaza fans and will continue to stay there when our plans land us in Houston. Only downside is that if you are traveling with kids or family there is only one room type with double beds. The larger suites are fantastic but for 2 people.

Room Tip: Upgrade to the fantastico suite if you can. They have better views and are more comfortable.

My husband recently surprised me with an anniversary/birthday staycation at Hotel Zaza and it was amazing. The concept suite "Soho Loft" has the most spectacular view of downtown Houston and a really relaxing setting. The bed was extremely comfortable and the bathroom spacious. We had breakfast and dinner at The Monarch and my husband says his breakfast of Chicken Chilaquiles was the best he has ever had. I had waffles for breakfast and a steak at dinner that were delicious. But the most impressive thing about Zaza and this is saying something, is the staff. Everybody was extremely polite and helpful. Justin Sparks and Chef Jones stand out most. There is not 1 thing i could say negative about the entire weekend.
ZAZA is a must stay because "They Love Ya" (it was on the pillow with a rice crispie treat!)

The best hotel I have ever stayed at! The staff went above and beyond to make our stay the most memorable experience we have ever had. I would like to thank especially Justin Sparks for everything he did to make our stay so special. He should be voted concierge of the year! He went above and beyond to make us feel special. I can't thank him enough. We are planning our next stay at Hotel ZaZa soon. When they say they love ya at Hotel ZaZa, they mean it. Well, back at ya! We love ya too!
