Not for the faint of heart, Hotel Zaza’s Houston outpost (a follow-up to its flagship in Dallas) screams Texas attitude in a big way. Despite its prime Museum District location, Zaza doesn’t take itself too seriously, from the posh suites boasting full-service stainless-steel kitchens and kitschy themes like “Houston We Have a Problem” to the far-from-subtle decor in the mirrored-out suite called “For Your Eyes Only.” Houstonites and hotel guests hit the pool and poolside bar on a nightly basis dressed to the nines — in keeping with the vibe throughout the 315-room boutique property.
In the Area
The Houston Museum District boasts 18 museums within a 1.5-mile radius of Hermann Park, making them all easily accessible. Besides the Museum of Fine Arts, John and Dominique de Menil’s Menil Collection anchors the area, housing a Renzo Piano-designed museum with a Cy Twombly gallery and the spectacular Rothko Chapel with 14 collages inside. Area shopping at Highland Village and Uptown Park keeps the crowd at Zaza sufficiently well-heeled, and if they can tear themselves away from the scene, Houston’s best restaurant, Oxheart, as well as favorite Japanese spot Uchi and premium cocktail bar Anvil are all within a 10-minute drive.
How to Get There
Our group just stayed at the Hotel Zaza and Melissa Chapa in Meeting Services was a delight to work with during the whole process! The guests had a wonderful stay and thank you for your hospitality! I would recommend the team at Hotel Zaza for group bookings any day!
Everyday we started with the amazing hot fresh coffee at the end of the hallway. Also the mint green tea is some of the best I’ve ever had.
Cozy room. Unique decor. Great bar downstairs to watch the game and grab a bite. Beautiful patio too. DJ starts later at night if that’s your thing.
Walked to the gardens and zoo. Loved the location. Nice being close to so many museums. Could have stayed all week!
Stayed here due to location in museum district. We were able to walk to all the museums-5- that we visited. Fun decor, great bar, full of locals & guests in the evening.
Breakfast on a lovely enclosed porch. Our room was small but had everything we needed, very clean. Wonderful service of the hotel is a shuttle that will take you free (tip) anywhere within 5 miles. So handy, we used it lots. Attended the Opera and the symphony easily that way, Ubered home.
Staff all friendly & helpful Highly recommended. Stay included a weekend & averaged $300 a night.
