On my recent trip to Houston I was wowed by a new property (open less that a year): The ZaZa Houston Luxury Hotel. It’s by far the most unique hotel I’ve visited. Like the original ZaZa Hotel in Dallas, ZaZa Houston offers themed rooms that are unlike anything you’ve seen. These rooms are a mixture of high-end elegance and exciting originality.
The Magnificent Seven Suites are an absolute must-see. From the The Magnificent Seven Suites Rock Star Room filled with original rock & roll memorabilia to the Black Label room touting a top-floor outdoor hot-tub with a breathtaking view, the suites will blow you away. As Benji Homesy, President of Z Resorts, gave me a tour of the property, I found myself constantly asking “Who thinks of this stuff?”. Benji is one of the brains behind these rooms and he is understandably very proud of his work.
The Lounge / Bar at ZaZa Houston is know for it’s nightlife (as is ZaZa Dallas where I also had a chance to experience the energy of a packed pool-side bar on a Friday night.) This is definitely a place to be seen. Oversized chairs and wild yet tastefully elegant prints run throughout the common areas, as do stunning photographs – every floor coming with it’s own unique set of images. In fact, during my visit I encountered a group of guests who were simply elevator riding (stopping on every floor) to be able to see the vibrant images displayed in front of the open elevator doors on each floor.
Not surprisingly, both ZaZa hotels are a favourite to celebrities. If you’re looking for something classy yet exciting and outside of the box – Hotel Zaza Houston is for you!
