  2. Yesterday I noticed a large black vehicle with "Hotel Zaza" emblazened on the doors. What caught my attention was the pair of longhorn horns attached to its front. As a pedestrian, such things can make a much bigger impression on me than on your average Houstonian - literally. They're the perfect height and shape to impale the unwary. Getting hit by a car is never fun. I've been fortunate enough to have survived it a couple of times. Then too, those vehicles weren't sporting cattle horns. Now, I understand that this is a sly, cute, ironic reference. But does it have to be so potentially deadly as well? If they want to complete the wink-wink Western theme, perhaps they could dress the driver as Yosemite Sam, and have him randomly fire a pair of six-shooters.
  3. Can anyone confirm for me that the Warwick has been purchased?
  4. Feb. 19, 2005, 10:00PM Hotel ZaZa looks for a site Dallas owners believe Houston a hot stopover for wealthy travelers By NANCY SARNOFF Copyright 2005 Houston Chronicle Hotel ZaZa, a swanky Dallas inn whose guest book includes such names as Cher, Britney Spears and Jerry Seinfeld, wants to open a property in Houston. A location hasn't been selected yet, but a hotel spokeswoman said the owners are looking to expand the ZaZa brand in a few select cities. "Houston is definitely in our scope," said Barbara Buzzell. She said the owners are looking at a property here, but wouldn't say which one, because nothing is final. Rumors about one possible location have centered on the Warwick Hotel on Main Street. John Remmers, general manager of the 1920s Museum District property, said he wasn't aware of any sale to ZaZa. The Warwick, which overlooks Hermann Park and the famous Mecom Fountain, was once the only place to stay in Houston. "In the '60s, the Warwick was the best game in town," said John Keeling, a hotel analyst with PKF Consulting. "For the well-heeled traveler, that was where they stayed, and there was no competition." As Houston started seeing more hotel construction in the 1970s, the Warwick became less exclusive. It suffered further blows during the 1980s oil bust, and the property later changed hands several times. But its location between downtown and the Texas Medical Center was an enduring problem for the Warwick, said Keeling. "It's a 'tweener,' " he said. "It's not in the Med Center, and it's not downtown. It's neither here nor there." Hotel ZaZa opened in Dallas, its only location, in 2002. Its Uptown site, which is walking distance to more than a dozen restaurants and condominium buildings, has helped its success, Keeling said. On the other hand, the Warwick location, while scenic and upscale, is more of a residential environment, he said. "It's a very risky call," Keeling said. Hotel ZaZa was developed by Charles Givens and Jeff Records of Givens Records Properties of Oklahoma City. Each of the property's 146 oversized rooms includes a sitting room, a work area, Mario Russo bath products and marble bathrooms. The hotel also has a salon called ZaSpa and a restaurant developed by celebrity chef Stephan Pyles. ZaZa is about to open seven luxury suites in a separate building. Catering to the ultrarich, these over-the-top "villas" have gourmet kitchens, Whirlpool spas, 42-inch plasma screen TVs and music systems. The most expensive one, called the Rock Star, goes for $1,695 a night.
