Very Important Persons seem to love the Mansion: The Crown Prince of Saudi Arabia reserved almost all of the 143 rooms on his last visit. The outrageousness of the decor suits the over-the-top personalities. The Renaissance revival-style mansion was built in the 1920s for local cotton magnate Shepperd King. Wandering among the copious antiques and fresh floral displays, imported marble underfoot, and massive, carved ceiling coffers overhead, you can enjoy robber-baron magnificence with a sprawling Texan inflection. But the domestic origins—however grand—make the Mansion's ambience more welcoming than overpowering. Like many Texas grand dames, the Mansion restaurant got a face-lift in 2007 and has reopened with a full new menu.

"Staff are like mind readers" at this former cotton magnate's residence, whose steeple has ornate crosses. Coral-red velvet couches embolden airy rooms with French doors and peach accents (the hotel's signature color). At the Mansion Restaurant variations of classics include shrimp cocktail with horseradish panna cotta and spicy tomato syrup, and can be taken on the veranda or around the terrace fire. "Wherever you eat, you won't be disappointed by the setting or the food."
