4 Houston luxury hotels win new Conde Nast Traveler awards
In February, American News and World Report ranked Tilman Fertitta’s luxury Post Oak Hotel # 13 in all of its top 50 hotels in the US in 2021 – and # 1 in Texas.
The opulent Post Oak still retains its status as Best in Houston in a new ranking, but an Austin hostel has been named Best in Texas by said outlet. CondÃ© Nast traveler has just presented this title to the Fairmont Austin.
October 5, CondÃ© Nast Traveler released the results of its 2021 Readers’ Choice awards. In addition to The Post Oak, three other local hotels are among the top 20 properties in Texas:
- The Houstonian Hotel, Club & Spa, Houston
- ZaZa Houston Museum District Hotel
- ZaZa Houston Memorial City Hotel
Since opening, the Post Oak has remained the only Forbes Double Five Star rated hotel in Texas. The 10-acre property in the heart of Post Oak has 38 floors, 250 rooms and suites; 20 executive residences; and an elegant 35,000 square foot conference room, including Uptown Houston’s largest ballroom.
Meanwhile, a massive 5,000 square foot two-bedroom Presidential Suite offers private elevator access, a media room, exercise room, and secluded patio. Another draw is the clubby, private Oak Room, where Houston’s elite mix and mingle.
Customers can visit the two-story Rolls-Royce showroom and the on-site Bentley and Bugatti Post Oak Motors dealership. VIPs can fly in the hotel’s private helicopter.
