I live in Houston but I love staying in luxury hotels on my travels. Occasionally for date night, my girlfriend and I will go out for a nice evening and stay at one of Houston's lovely 4 star establishments. Out of all the hotels in the city, Zaza is one of my favorites! The staff is on point from the valet to the front desk to room service. I originally booked the Soho Loft, a 1000 sq ft bi-level, NYC styled suite. I got there early to check in before meeting my girlfriend but upon arrival I was informed that the suite was not ready. Seeing the disappointment on my face, the helpful young lady at the front desk got an approval to upgrade me to one of their Magnificent 7 Suites on the 12th floor. She informed me that I would now be staying in the Black Label Suite and that I wouldn't be disappointed. The suite I booked was already what I would consider rather expensive at over $600/night but the suite I was moving into booked regularly for more than $2000/night!!! Happy with the upgrade, I made my way to the elevator and up to the 12th floor. There are only 7 rooms on this floor and they don't have room numbers, they have names like "The Tycoon", "It Happened One Night" and my room, "The Black Label". Already impressed, I enter the suite. This suite is over 2,000 sq ft with 2 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, a formal dining room, kitchen, living room, breakfast area and a huge balcony with seating, another breakfast area and a soaking tub. Yes, a tub on the balcony. Upon entering there is a long art filled hallway. The floors are a dark colored wood with a shiny lacquer finish. Watch your step as you step up to enter the master bedroom which is decorated with a California king bed, a cushy chair, a chandelier, a large flat screen tv above a mantle and a giant window overlooking the West University area, The bathroom is massive! It has a double vanity, a large walk-in closet, a w/c, a stand alone shower and a garden tub with a window peering into the bedroom. The 2nd bedroom is smaller but still has a king sized bed with a large flat screen tv and closet. There is a window with a view into the breakfast area and balcony. The bathroom is nice but pretty standard with a single vanity, a toilet and shower. There is a kitchen with a full sized sub zero fridge. It's fully stocked with sodas, juice, Gatorade, Fiji water, coconut water, Pelligrino, Red Bull (regular and sugar free), wine and champagne. One of the cabinets contains a fully stocked bar but not with mini bottles. There are 750 ml bottles of everything from Grey Goose to Hennessy. On the counter lies a basket with snacks, a bottle of red wine and the price list for all of these lovely items. The kitchen continues with a dishwasher, sink, microwave, stove and an oven. If you want coffee, there are coffee beans, an electric grinder, a coffee maker and a cappuccino/espresso machine. The dining room table is marble topped with seating for 8. A large crystal chandelier hangs above it. As you enter the living room, there is a desk and chair and also a long dresser with a Bose sound system. The wraparound couch is accompanied by 2 throne-like chairs as they surround the coffee table. There is another large flat screen tv in the corner. There is a chaise lounge against the wall as you approach the breakfast area. In this area there is a round table with seating for 4. From either this room or the living room, you can exit out onto the humongous balcony. With a loveseat, chairs, a table with seating for 4 and the soaking tub, this is one of the best features of the suite! Large and immaculately decorated, the Black Label Suite is TOP NOTCH! Breakfast the next morning at Monarch was nice but the suite was the highlight of the stay!
