Rooms & Rates
Built in 2007, the Hotel Granduca is referred to as “the Palace of the Duke,” resembling a Tuscan villa with a pastel-colored exterior surrounded by palm trees and blossoming gardens. Within, guests are greeted with crystal chandeliers, suits of armor and Italian Fresco paintings.
All accommodations include complimentary Wi-Fi, fine Italian linens, marble vanities brimming with Aqua Di Parma toiletries and fresh flowers. Even standard rooms have kitchens, king beds and views of the gardens and pool but the palatial property is most popular for its deluxe suites. Stretching up to 2,100 square feet, suites have private terraces and full kitchens with granite countertops.
Ristorante Cavour serves Northern Italian cuisine and is best-known for its elegant afternoon teas and Sunday champagne brunches. Beds of tulips, coquelicot cabanas and palm trees hem the heated saltwater pool, and the hotel’s staff ushers snacks and cocktails to guests sunning on padded wicker lounge chairs.
Located in Uptown, the property is across the street from Memorial Park, high-end shopping and restaurants. The hotel is a 10-minute drive from The Galleria and 15 minutes from The Musem of Fine Arts, Houston Zoo and the Theater District. A complimentary shuttle transports guests within three miles.
