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
Amazed by the hotel. Big Mike was the best shuttle driver out there. Ask for him and your stay will get even better. The pool is beautiful. The staff was very friendly. The rooms were well kept and looked after when we were gone. Lots of space wherever we went.
I would like to thank Mark from Hotel Zaza Museum District for providing great customer experienced. Booked a hotel for my sister and her fiance. Got upgraded and everything else taken care of before they checked in to the hotel. Would definitely come back again. Hotel has great atmosphere as well.
Stayed for a wedding and it was one of the BEST hotel experiences I’ve ever had. Michael the Bellman was courteous and beyond on-top-of-things!
The hotel staff was helpful and ensured that all of our needs were met.
I have stayed at Hotel ZaZa many times and love returning. The staff is very friendly and accommodating and the location cannot be beat for museum and downtown access. The rooms are very nice and each one has a balcony which is a bonus. The restaurant downstairs is perfect to grab a nice lunch or dinner. My only complaint for this particular visit was the noise from the bar. We stayed on the third floor right above the restaurant/bar and they had a band playing for a private event until midnight. We were there on a week night and had a vey early meeting the next day. We placed several phone calls to the reception desk to no avail. However, the service the next day made up for the inconvenience. Upon checkout the front desk receptionist apologized and waived our valet charges. I received a personal email and phone call after our stay from the manager further apologizing and offering an upgrade for our next visit. Although inconvenienced, the staff and management handled it in a very professional way and I thank them for that. They informed me that will have some policy changes in the future. I will definitely return and appreciate their friendliness and top notch staff. Would definitely recommend.
Hotel ZaZa was the perfect place to help my daughter heal after serious arm surgery, and celebrate Mother's Day. Not only is the hotel welcoming, well appointed, the staff was amazing at making sure she was comfortable and had what we needed to have the best weekend under challenging conditions.
The food, spa, and location are wonderful! Will absolutely be staying there whenever I am in Houston!
