With 315 rooms, the Hotel ZaZa Museum District is situated in the heart of the vibrant Museum District in Houston. Hotel Zaza’s spacious guest suites start at more than 700 square feet and mix modern décor with Italian touches like-leopard print rugs, crystal chandeliers and red velvet drapes. For the most exceptional views and accommodations, we recommend the Rock Star Suite. Monarch, the onsite terrace restaurant, offers breakfast, lunch and dinner for hotel guests. From breakfast tacos to ahi tuna poke bowls and crispy jalapeño calamari, there’s something for everyone to enjoy. Plus you can enjoy these items poolside at the hotel’s stunning, expansive pool.
