Fodor's Expert Review Hotel ZaZa
5701 Main St., Houston, Texas, 77005, USA Fodor's Choice
With flashy, over-the-top decor, the party at the ZaZa never ends. Think taxidermy, chandeliers, prints on prints on prints, video walls, a pool area that rivals Vegas casinos, and lots of lacquer. It can come across as trying too hard, but there's nothing else like it in the city. Eight themed guest suites ("The Magnificent Seven") pay homage to the international jet set, rock stars, and Texas cowboys. The Monarch Restaurant and Lounge has some of the best food in town, but the bar clientele is not always as sophisticated as the diners. The hotel's location at the foot of Hermann Park means all rooms have gorgeous views.
- fun atmosphere
- beautiful location
- great pool scene
