    Houston, TX

    Inspired by Old World Italy, the Hotel Granduca treats Houston visitors to a taste of Europe. From the gourmet cuisine at Ristorante Cavour to afternoon tea, this property knows how to help guests slow down and unwind. You can pick from a number of room types, the most luxurious being the Residenza Imperatore, which has its own separate entrance and 2,100 square feet of space. No matter which room you choose, you'll enjoy plush beds with Italian linens surrounded by antique furnishings and artwork.

Visitors enjoy spending time by the pool and in Bar Malatesta, where drinks are often accompanied by live music. To top it all off, Hotel Granduca gladly welcomes pets, pampering them with treats and special pillows. What's more, Leaders Club members get perks like room upgrades and complimentary breakfast at this hotel.

    Hotel ZaZa Houston
    Houston, TX
    4-star HOTEL CLASS
    TripAdvisor Traveler Rating 4.5 based on 1880 reviewsTripAdvisor (1880)
    Free WiFi

    ZaZa hotels have a bit of an eclectic reputation, and the Houston branch is no different. For instance, animal-print chairs accompany crystal chandeliers, and bold-patterned carpets offset one-of-a-kind artwork. But somehow it all comes together. Guests describe Hotel ZaZa's ambiance as memorable, and they praise the trendy-yet-comfortable guest rooms (stocked with private bars, complimentary internet access, rainfall showers and Gilchrist & Soames bath products). If you can afford it, splurge on a "concept" suite. The themed decor in these spacious digs really showcases Hotel ZaZa Houston's attention to detail. Travelers also praise the property's facilities, especially the poolside lounge where you can kick back and nurse cocktails all afternoon. Or, you can find your bout of R&R in ZaSpa before digging in to a gourmet meal at Monarch. And should you find yourself going slightly stir-crazy, Houston's Museum District is just steps away.

    Free WiFi

    Favored by guests for its sheer decadence, Hotel ICON caters to a trendier crowd. Occupying the former Union National Bank just north of downtown Houston, the Hotel ICON offers a highly ornamental baroque style of decoration. Rich colors, lush fabrics, ornate patterns and numerous objets d'art fill the lobby and guest rooms, mingling with in-room amenities like soaking tubs and complimentary high-speed internet access. (Guests highly recommend booking a corner room for more natural light.) Soom rooms come with a private whirlpool, and all guests can indulge in the succulent dishes at Line & Lariat restaurant. Traveler hoping to explore the area surrounding the hotel had best keep in mind that parking is expensive here though.

    The Hotel Sorella CITYCENTRE has staked a good reputation among guests and travel experts alike, boasting numerous accolades. It's easy to see why this West Houston hotel is so popular, with its rooftop infinity pool and its sleek and modern (yet still comfy) design aesthetic. Plus, the Monnalisa eatery contains a fireplace and a starlit ceiling. Although its central location adjacent to the CITYCENTRE complex might mean late-night noise, recent guests still rave about the well-equipped and colorful rooms that include complimentary Wi-Fi. If you can, reserve a room on the opposite side of the hotel for a more satisfying slumber.

    Magnolia Hotel Houston, A Tribute Portfolio Hotel
    Houston, TX
    4-star HOTEL CLASS
    TripAdvisor Traveler Rating 4.5 based on 2981 reviewsTripAdvisor (2981)
    Free Breakfast
    Free WiFi

    Just a few blocks west of Minute Maid Park, this hotel starts the day off with a complimentary breakfast buffet and ends the evening with a free happy hour reception and bedtime cookies. As well as these perks, recent guests rave about the Magnolia Hotel Houston's rooftop pool and Jacuzzi, describing the skyline views as fantastic. Visitors are just as complimentary of the guest rooms, which feature brightly colored decorative accents (which add a fun, quirky feel to the hotel's historic architecture), minibars and complimentary Wi-Fi. When it's time to eat, chow down on contemporary American fare in The Lounge or have it delivered to your room. Recent guests say that this Houston property is a great bargain given its location and long list of freebies, but some visitors say that the hotel needs to work on its customer service, citing disorganized staff as its only downside. Keep in mind that because this is a Tribute Portfolio hotel, members of the Marriott Bonvoy program can earn and redeem points by choosing to stay here.
