The second floor lobby emanated elegance with stone floors, sepia mirrored walls, mid-century furniture, gilded accents and plenty of art. All this was designed by the renowned Houston-based interior designer and architect Lauren Rottet who was inspired by a fictional European sophisticate – Alessandra – who falls hard for an oil tycoon.

Food & Drink
Lucienne served upscale Mediterranean-inspired cuisine in a funky and futuristic atmosphere. We went for the dinner tasting menu here and were blown away by Executive Chef Jose Hernandez‘s French technique and one-of-a-kind spin on continental European dishes.
Bar Bardot was the place to be with a good-looking crowd sipping on champagne cocktails and whisky flights late into the night. Small bites like lobster fondue and crisp-fried frog legs accompany the bar’s handcrafted cocktails.
This luxury hotel comes with warm, helpful and an easy-going staff. The butler will make conversation with you as you are showed to your room. When getting ready to go out, room service will bring you a bottle of wine and cheese plate to help you get ready.
