Inspired by the 16th century Tuscan palazzo of Adalberto Malatesta, the Granduca of Monfallito, this 122-room urban retreat was conceived by owner Giorgio Borlenghi, whose vision included making sure every room had an elaborate kitchen like his nonna’s back in Italy. This attention to detail continues in the public spaces, which feature antique rugs, chandeliers, mosaics, fountains, and other Old World flourishes. Guests can dine on Northern Italian specialties, as well as partake in afternoon tea and hearty Mediterranean-style brunches, in one of many serene venues throughout the hotel.
In the Area
Take advantage of the hotel’s free local car service and hit the upscale stores at The Galleria (staff from the hotel can even retrieve your packages and return them to the hotel while you continue your retail spree.) The Houston Museum District, meanwhile, offers a more cerebral take on the city: 19 museums are showcased within a 1.5 mile radius, from the Holocaust Museum to the excellent Contemporary Arts Museum. Don’t miss the Rothko Chapel, a beautiful space welcoming all faiths, with interiors inspired by the American Modernist painter.
How to Get There
This beautiful Italian style hotel was so peaceful and relaxing. The chef in the resturant, after cooking amazing dishes "Branzino" , ( whole grilled fish with head on - light, tasty like sea bass), and Diver scallops with corn coulis, following delightful appetizers of Roman artichokes and Burrata Caprese with amazing cheese,
came out to meet us! Adrian was very personable and enjoyed talking about his creations..
All while live music was adding to the atmosphere of elegance.
After finding this place, we did not have to go anywhere else..
What a find!
Hotel Granduca was as lovely as always. The quite and lovely poolarea and the restaurant is really different from other hotels we have visited. The rooms are big and luxurious but the best thing with Granduca is the staff, totally outstanding! We will always stay here when returning to Houston.

The title says it all - first-class service and facilities. Even the water pressure in the shower is first-class. I've found that in many cases you don't get what you pay for with a hotel, but this one is different. Second time we've stayed there and will definitely be back.
We always look forward to our stay at The Granduca. They're commitment to personal comfort and care is apparent from arrival thru departure. The accommodations are very comfortable and roomy, with fabulous food and a great piano bar. We'll always stay at the Granduca when traveling to Houston.
I love staying at the Granduca in Houston. Great location, very classy decor, swanky bar and amazing outdoor pool area and patio. Room pricing is a good value but the restaurant and bar pricing is a little over market. The rooms are large and well decorated but the mattresses are old and uncomfortable. An upgrade to these would make this the best place to stay in Houston.
