Hotel Granduca Houston

Houston's little taste of Italy
Travel to Italy without breaking out a passport when staying at Houston’s Hotel Granduca.

From its pastel-colored exterior to its striking interior design, this lovely hotel blends Old World style with modern amenities.

Hotel Granduca may feel like a secluded resort thanks to its quiet sophistication, yet this hotel has a prime location in Houston’s Uptown neighborhood.

The services, from chauffeur service and personal trainers to a lovely heated outdoor pool, are impressive. Just like a grand private residence, the veranda, conservatory and club room are among the many spots to dine.
