Italian decor and charm
No on-site spa

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. Most guests say the customer service is excellent, too (perhaps reminiscent of the famous Italian hospitality). 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.

With an air of old Italian aristocracy, the Hotel Granduca offers guest a luxurious retreat from the hustle and bustle of the big city.

Frommer's Exceptional



The super-luxurious all-suites property is just steps away from the Uptown Park shopping and dining village. A multilingual staff anticipates your every need.

Fodor's Choice

Lonely Planet


Expect Italian elegance with a warm Texan welcome. Graduca was modeled after a Duke's palazzo, so rooms are suitably rich and the pool area is a garden oasis.



Hotel Granduca may feel like a secluded resort thanks to its quiet sophistication, yet this hotel has a prime location in Houston's Uptown neighborhood. The services, from chauffeur service and personal trainers to a lovely heated outdoor pool, are impressive.

Condé Nast Traveler


Deemed a veritable 'Euro-style palace' in Uptown's The Galleria, here's a hotel that brings more than a taste of old world Italy to the Longhorn State.
