This 12-story hotel in the heart of the leafy Museum District offers some of the splashiest digs in town, suitable for rock stars, escapist vacationers, and business travelers with time to play. The "Magnificent Seven" are ultra-swanky themed suites; the Tycoon, for example, maxes out at about 2,000 square feet with two bedrooms, two-and-a-haf bathrooms, white leather furniture, and an iron chandelier, plus an outdoor tub on a spacious balcony. Slightly less decadent are the ten "concept" suites, such as the Space Age-inspired "Houston, We Have a Problem" and the sultry, Japanese-style Geisha House. You can also "slum" it with a balcony king featuring a step-out patio with views of Hermann Park, or a smaller pool bungalow with easy access to the happening pool scene on the second floor. The venue also boasts a lavish, full-service spa, a fitness center, and a romantic restaurant, Monarch, with cocktails and terrace dining overlooking Mecom Fountain. Hotel packages are available with tickets to the Museum of Fine Arts, which is just across the street.
