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
Stayed there two nights August 6 and seventh. Beautiful lobby, well decorated with amazing photographs And a few movie posters. The location in the museum district was perfect. The rooms look perfect with beautiful views. The pool in the bars were perfect. Reception and staff are friendly and helpful. If there’s a better place to stay in Houston,
I stayed in the SoHo Loft. It's a really classy room and full of style. The staff are friendly, excellent at attention to detail and attend to your every need. If you're looking for an elegant place to share a wonderful evening with someone, then this place will not disappoint you.
When we checked in at 11pm we would have expected the woman at front desk to be a little friendlier to weary travelers but she was not. This place is trying way too hard to be their definition of cool and it shows. Not classy or elegant. Pics of celebs on walls doesn’t equate with being a top tier hotel. And as other reviews have noted, be prepared to stand in shower water as the drain doesn’t work fast enough. I would like to commend the valet attendants for always putting hotel guest first and being on their toes working very hard every time I left or arrived back at hotel. Thank you to them.
Excellent service, cleanliness, staff & property. You CAN NOT go wrong with staying here. Location is close to the medical district and in a very beautiful area. This is absolutely a five star resort. You will thank me.
Amazing Hotel. We will be back again. Staff was a great help and always friendly. Room was clean and smelt beautiful. Lobby was welcoming and inviting the second we walked in. Close to many downtown sights.
