Hotel ZaZa Houston Museum District
Ranked #7 of 517 Hotels in Houston
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed January 7, 2014

Even if I'm doing something downtown I find a reason to stay at ZaZa Houston. Their ZIP loyalty program is the real deal (generous amenities and bonuses and upgrades, excellent wi fi that you don't have to log back into every 7 minutes) not some abstract points that are impossible to redeem. The rooms are great, the service is friendly/professional, the front desk and bell staff truly helpful. The restaurant and bar are not some pre-packaged hotel experience. And with the Museum of Fine Arts literally across the street, wow. Nice.

Stayed at the ZaZa for two nights in March of 2013. I have nothing but positives to say about this hotel. The decor is very artsy and unique, which I mean in a good way! The lobby is very large and spacious and the staff is friendly. The valet parking was also a great asset. The pool area is absolutely beautiful and so relaxing. They have a pool bar that serves drinks and food. The room was on the smaller side but it was comfortable and the bathroom was just wow so nice. We ordered room service the night before and got our breakfast at the exact time we asked for it, it was also very good and we got to eat it on the balcony. The shuttle service is so nice, they will drop you off and pick you up WHEREVER literally my cousin and I just wanted a subway sub and they took us. Kind of makes you feel like a celebrity in the big black SUV haha. We stayed on the 4th floor and it was not noisy at all, pets are also welcome at the hotel from what I saw. I had a great stay and would recommend this hotel to anyone.

After staying for 6+ weeks at the ZaZa, the experience was lovely. It is a well run property and everything will be done to make you comfortable. They have a lovely old hotel building---constraining the room size and configuration---and their design work is smart, edgy, comfortable and very well done. Beds, bathrooms, closets, amenities are all there and first rate. And a great 'feel' to the place----and the people watching is the best in town.

The bar is a great place as is the informal restaurant which is adjacent.

Room service can be slow or may not be exactly what was ordered. IF brought to their attention, it is certainly corrected and this should sort our as the new chef has a bit of time.

The available shuttle (a great longhorned SUV) is a great amenity and very well run---allow an extra 20 minutes (sit down at the front doors and reading a paper) to get on the list and you will be off and can call for a pick up.

The staff is most accommodating----just ask for anything you need or comment if you find something wanting. They do not anticipate your needs like a Four Seasons. And the staff has been there for several years and seem to enjoy being part of the ZaZa culture.

Room Tip: Views downtown or of the park and Rice University are wonderful.

I always dream of staying at Hotel Zaza..On 12/15 I finally got that opportunity to experience a night I will never forget. It was my 17th year wedding anniversary for my husband and I. From the moment I arrive at this grand Hotel my journey begun. Valet parking the men gathered all my belonging and took it yo the front desk. Once I got to the desk the two clerks greeted me with a friendly smile. Once they found out it was my 17th wedding anniversary they gave me a 50.00 dollar Zaza bucks and complimentary drinks for two. The manger from concierge ( I believe his name is Lamonte) he greeted me and asked if I need anything to let him know. He came to my room with cheese and cracks so I can have something to snack on while I get ready for my big event. Also he called me to let me know my limo was downstairs waiting on me.
Once I returned to my room Hotel Zaza went over and beyond the call of duty for my room. We had chocolate covered strawberries, wine,
rose petals, and candles around my room. The mood was definitely set fit for my husband and I. Breakfast in bed and the beautiful view from my room was breathe taking. I appreciate 110% everything and I mean everything you did to make our 17th wedding anniversary a night we will never ever forget. I can't wait for 2016 when we have our 20th wedding anniversary celebration at your Hotel in one of your ballroom. See you soon!!!!

We had a fantastic experience at Hotel ZaZa Houston. While I have stayed at the Dallas Hotel ZaZa previously, this was our first experience at Hotel ZaZa Houston. The hotel décor is beautiful – the lobby and rooms are fantastic. Mary S took excellent care of us also – THANK YOU. We received an upgraded room on arrival which was a pleasant surprise. We enjoyed pre-dinner and post dinner cocktails at the Monarch which was a great way to start and end the evening. Also, the shuttle service at the hotel makes everything so convenient. The shuttle will drop you off and pick you up anywhere within five miles of the hotel which makes it super easy to dine off premises.

Fantastic experience and will definitely return!

ZAZA was amazing! This was my first time staying and it was superb starting with booking the room. We were helped by Keli with reservations, she was warm and thoughtful, she recommended the perfect room for the night and made sure all the details were handled. All of the staff was courteous and attentive from the bartender to the concierge. We had a fun night of bar hopping planned in Midtown and found that the complimentary shuttle was perfect for the night. I believe the driver's name was Ash, he was great. I would recommend this hotel to anyone wanting a unique upscale experience in Houston.

Room Tip: Stayed in the Spendito Suite it was very spacious was like having apartment for the weekend.

From the moment I drove into the hotel, to the friendly greeting by the concierge, to the overwhelming welcome at the front desk, to the luggage delivery in a totally awesome room, and to the outstanding service and quality of the food in the Monarch, this hotel ranks among the very best in the hospitality field. One could not help but sense the "esprit de corps" among all the hotel staff. Over the course of a four day visit, each day felt as if I were in my own home. Truly, a hotel that puts forth 110% into everything!

Room Tip: Ask for the "03" suites...excellent view of Downtown, the Museum, and Galleria.
