... Screens and Flow Control Device Product Line Manager - briefed me on SLBs sand control division. Sand screens, ICDs - got to see what nozzles look like, including the ResCheck nozzles that have dissolvable balls (w cages) that seal the opening in the nozzles whilst running in hole, then are dissolved by acid when production is required. Also, a developing technology that includes a SSD to open and close the ICD. Then I got a bit of tour by Mark of the sand ...
... hang. Old Mesilla is actually my new fave place. Our cab driver told us to go, or we would not have made this incredible discovery. The restaurant we ate dinner at was amazing looking, and I took many pictures, but the food only so-so.
Can't wait for our next segment to this journey, and to be able to share more pics. You will notice I stay out of most of the pictures.
Today is dedicated to exploring Sorrento. It's an ancient city, huge cliffs, gigantic walls, and filled with quaint little shops. St. Francis is the patron saint and next to our hotel is a chapel dedicated to him. while we were looking around we witnessed two weddings taking place there. We also did a little shopping, sat by the pool and had another delicious dinner at a restaurant that's been in business since 1930. During this trip, Herb has been interviewing people we meet ...
Arrived at Houston by half 6, just in time for a cheap American diner dinner in the Waffle House...not quite as nice as the Waffle House in England! Just a quick stop over here before we caught our flight the next morning over to Vegas. Free breakfast in the morning, stocked up on cinnamon buns for the ...

Obviously, that was not possible so I had to convince the woman to let me give all the papers to Kristina and bring up there another day, which is against the rules, but they let it slide. So the following week she took it up there about 1:15pm and the embassy closed at 1:00 pm. She stood outside the locked door and finally someone was leaving and she got in and said “please all I need to do is drop this off” and ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Hotel ZaZa Houston
Una relajada estancia
Me alojé en el ZaZa para asistir a una conferencia que se celebraba allí. Como siempre, me esperaba estar de negocios y me llevé una agradable sorpresa al sentirme como en unas vacaciones. El servicio era impecable; todo el mundo está dedicado a asegurarse de que tuvieras una tranquila y agradable estancia. Las habitaciones son lujosas y aunque acaban de abrirlo hace apenas un mes, van por muy buen camino.
Considering that I grew up in Houston, I never knew what a fabulous "vacation" I could have in my hometown, thanks to Hotel ZaZa. Since I live/work overseas, I wanted to book a nice hotel for my visit to Houston, and I was very lucky to have come across this hotel before it even opened. From the initial booking, the service was impeccable! Originally, I booked for a petit King, but due to change of plans I needed a bigger room. When I contacted the hotel through email, not only did they graciously oblige, they also gave it to me for the same rate as the petit King.
Be careful of this so called swanky hotel.. It was apparent to me after visiting Hotel Zaza Houston that they are not what they claim to be. They charged my credit card $3,450.00 in room damages because they said I dirtied their couch with a glass of water. They charged me $1900 in cleaning fees for a few towels and some bed linens and the worst part is they don't respond to any of my calls or emails. It was the worst experience ever including this. We purchased a Splendido Suite which was not ready by our 3:00PM check in so they made us wait in the lounge for 2 hours with no free drinks. Once we arrived at our room, we come to find out that our mini bar is completely empty. No one ever came up in 2 days to refill the mini bar from the last person who stayed.
Stayed in a fantstico suite for one night for a birthday on the 30th, the hotel is a drastic improvement from the Warwick and a new style for Houston - but does not yet meet the standards of top hotels in other cities. The suite was large and the decorating was nice, but the execution was incomplete. The CD player was missing, the mini bar was a Wal Mart refrigerator that spilled all the contents when you opened the door and the finish was not complete. The light fixtures were loose, grout still on the widow and general puch out from the construction incomplete. The staff tries very hard, but you can tell they have not worked in even a four star hotel before. We had several people visit for the evening, the hotel made us come down to allow some people up to the room and others had no problem geeting into the hotel and up to the room. We ordered room service twice for different groups and it also was inconsistant at best - from not knowing their own menu, forgetting the order and not calling back if a dish was available, it was far below the standard set by the property. Overall the hotel does not yet meet the standard of a Ritz Carlton or even a JW Marriott - much less an independent luxury hotel. In the past six months I spent a week traveling the California cost and ten days in France - The ZaZa was below the standard of all hotels visited on both trips.
We were moving out of our Houston home and needed somewhere to stay for one night. We were so tired and run down from the move--Hotel Zaza was the perfect place to feel pampered and rested.
Das ist ein Hotel!
Dies ist wirklich ein wunderschönes Hotel! Die Zimmer sind schön und stilvoll. Unser Einchecken verlief reibungslos und der Portier hat mit uns eine kleine Tour durchs Hotel gemacht.
Das Beste am Hotel ist das Monarch Restaurant. Das Essen kann wirklich mit nichts anderem in Houston verglichen werden. Kreativ und voller Geschmack. Das Restaurant war voll und trotzdem war der Service hervorragend. Ich hatte den Heilbutt und meine Frau den Lachs und beide waren köstlich.
Ich kann das Hotel jedem weiterempfehlen.
This is the Place
This is such a nice hotel!!! The rooms are pretty & stylish. Our check in was smooth & the bell men gave us a mini tour of the hotel.
The best thing about this hotel is the Monarch restaurant. The food is like no other I have had in Houston. Creative yet flavorful. The restaurant was very busy but the service was great. I had the Halibut & my wife had the salmon special both was out of this world.
I recomend this hotel to anybody.
We stayed here a week after its grand opening. We stayed in a Grande King room that overlooked the pool area. The room had a 42" plasma tv and everything in the room was brand new. Nobody offered to help me carry my heavy bag upstairs. There were way too many valets hanging out front. Parking was $18 for one night. We were offered a box of hot tamales candy upon arriving in our room. The hotel seems to still be working out some kinks. We order breakfast at about 9:15am and hadn't received it by 10:30am so we decided to call and check on it. The room service employee said that they couldn't find our order so she asked us for our order again and said she'd give it to the cook. Our order included items we didn't order so we had to call and ask them to correct the order which they did. Finally, we had to wait for them to come back to our room so we could sign a corrected receipt. So breakfast was definitely not the smoothest experience. The tv started losing reception on and off in the morning also. On another note, we ordered one beer and one mixed drink at the Monarch lounge and it was $18 - a little pricey in my opinion. The staff was fairly friendly and many asked if we were doing okay. The hotel feels similar to the hotels in Vegas for some reason with many young and trendy looking people. Overall it was a pretty good stay for our anniversary.
I was in Houston for tuesday night and decided to check Hotel Zaza. I attempted to book it online but the website was having a glitch or two. I called the hotel direct and got a "petite king" for $175. Check in went fine. I was given room 521 it was small but very stylish with a great view of the very lovely pool area. The bed was wonderfully luxurious and the opposite wall was mirrored with a large flat screen tv hung across the mirror, nice touch. The bathroom was small with a molded thick glass-topped vanity and sink on a stainless stand next to the glass shower. The bath products were Bulgari. The only problem with the bath was that precious little room was left for the toilet which was wedged next to the vanity. The closet was large with nice nice robe and safe. The room was very quiet despite overlooking the pool. The artwork in the hallways and the elevators is very hip Hollywood , quite a change from the old Warwick. The pool area with it's cabanas is vintage Hollywood. The lobby and ballrooms were a bit dark and some of the decor ( woman in a cage hanging over a pond) is a bit over the top, also the lower floor had a musty smell, hopefully a temporary problem.
I was lucky enough to know someone who knows someone that hooked us up for the big grand opening bash. They were expecting 1500+ people. OMG, we were so lucky to have a room! The person who invited me forgot to get me on the rooming list, so the front desk was scrambling to find me a room. They were very nice and managed to get it figured out.
