It's hard to escape this city–even for a vacation. But why would you want to? Haven't you heard we're trying to celebrate the moon landing's 50th anniversary? Did you know that NASA is actually based in Hou—okay, you have? Sorry. We're just excited and a bit prideful about it. In fact, we're so excited that we think a whole staycation should be made out of it in a NASA-themed hotel suite at Hotel ZaZa.
Hotel ZaZa in the Museum District offers a special hotel room you can rent called the "Houston, We Have A Problem" suite that will make you forget what the problem even was.
The 1,035 square feet suite has the perfect spots to hold your very important meetings about changing the world, if you're looking to inspire your office.
The room runs for about $547 per night, or for about $100 more you can get the room with two tickets to the Van Gogh exhibit and valet parking to MFAH across the street. Bring a few friends and this gigantic suite becomes totally affordable and the best way to spend your summer night!
Hotel ZaZa offers several different concept suites as well if you still want the experience but less of the price.
If a romantic getaway is what you're after, their "An Affair To Remember" is the best call. It's decorated in gold and burgandy accents, and antique references to the classic film.
Speaking of classic films, Casa Blanca inspired another suite at ZaZa and it's a dreamy Moroccan hideaway. There's also the Rock Star, Warwick Apartment, That's Entertainment, and C'est La Vie. You can check them all out (and their regular rooms) on their website.
They all have stunning views of the Houston skyline and the sunset. The poolside is pretty relaxing too.
If your boss asks you to conference call even though you specifically told him you'd be on vacation, you can just pretend you're out of cell range, because it'll feel like it in this hotel. That's all that matters. Live the illusion.
