Three Day Potty Training

... also deviate to some extent dependant on the age of a youngster. This is particularly a very imperative factor for those planning to get them. Simply because overlooking the age of the child specially when starting this training is self-defeating logic. It will simply lead you to a "square dowel in a circular hole" state. It is because 3 day toilet training features akin to addressing night-time mishaps, addressing ...

... a poem right there and then. It didn’t rhyme much or seem to follow any poetic patterns, but it contained the most beautiful, encouraging and inspiring, spontaneous words that moved us to tears, hugs and instant friendship from kindred empathy. Ron survived a car crash years and years ago. He was in coma for 4 months and his family was told he would die in 3 days after the accident, much like Matt’s hospital story.

Now we’re on ...

... flying home from Ireland the same day and were on the same flight from DC to Houston, so we met up with them in the airport. It was good to see some familiar faces and to reconnect with good friends and begin sharing stories about our trip. Our vacation was amazing and one we'll never forget! Taking two weeks to explore parts of the world we've never seen before not only helped us gain a ...

... booking like I was doing earlier in the trip. I find the spot on the GPS the internet said the dawn service was to be held. As I arrive, I see stalls and large novelty letters saying "G'day" and kangaroo cuttings and the wooden construction that will obviously be the opera house. I cruised past seeking a car park. Obviously more was going on here then just a dawn service. I find a park near some vintage houses. They are original houses for the settlement of Houston and the car ...

Our driver picked us up at the boat and we started on our 2 1/2 hour drive to Prague. We were sad to see the cruise end but excited to visit Prague. Our driver was from Detroit and has lived her 14 years. He acted as a tour guide explaining the history and pointing out sites. ...

    Historical Traveler Reviews Hotel ZaZa Houston

    Una relajada estancia

    from

    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.

    Fabulous Hotel!

    from

    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.

    Worst Hotel Experience EVER!

    from

    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.

    Good for Houston, but needs finishing touches

    from

    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.

    Fabulous!

    from

    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!

    from

    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

    from

    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.

    Nice but had some kinks

    from

    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.

    Hip New Zaza

    from

    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.

    Grand opening - Great Place, Beautiful Rooms

    from

    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.
