Hotel GranducaOpened in 2006, this hotel brings a touch of Tuscany to Texas. When Houston developer Giorgio Borlenghi envisioned Hotel Granduca, he was inspired by the life of Adalberto Malatesta, the Granduca of Monfallito—its namesake. Referred to as “the Palace of the Duke,” the statuesque property resembles an Italian villa with a palm tree–lined facade. Inside, opulent Italian antiques and low-key lighting give the space an intimacy and Old World sophistication. An attentive but discreet staff brings the southern hospitality.
Guest rooms and suites are equally inviting, with fine Italian linens and grand marble vanities stocked with Aqua Di Parma amenities—not to mention pool and garden views. The hotel provides wireless Internet, a concierge service, and transportation within three miles. Accommodations for longer stays are also available.
