This was a post made to reddit about room 322 at hotel ZaZa. What’s interesting to note is someone supposedly offered the poster cash to delete the post. The hotel refuses to answer any questions and we all know what 322 thanks for…
stay here frequently when on business. Hotel was booked solid and my colleague managed to score a room unplanned. We all had normal zaza style rooms (swank) and he ended up in this goth dungeon closet.
Seriously- the room had a chain holding the bed to wall, pictures of skulls and a creepy, incongruous portrait of an old man. Room was about 1/3 the normal size with the furniture blocking part of the TV, bed and window.
We asked about it at the front desk and the clerk looked it up and said " that room isn’t supposed to be rented.’ and immediately moved him.
Anyone know whats up with this room?

Edit to add the follow up from the Houston Press. Link.
Now I have to go and see if I can make reservations in the yacht room.
Edit 2: Chronicle emailed and I put them in touch with my friend who stayed in this room. Link. His name isn’t max but that isn’t the point of the story. I still don’t understand why these rooms aren’t on the website (when all the other themed rooms are and this is a hotel - meaning they want to rent rooms).
Edit 3: This thread has been fun. I’m not much for conspiracy theories and don’t really buy all the skull and bones stuff. I just wanted to know what was up with the room and figured someone on here might know a bit.
lots of the posts are asking questions about the pictures - they were taken months ago and no staging was involved. I’m not the photographer, just a curious Houston traveler usually in town for work with a group - one of whom happened to get this room and had the forethought to take photos.
And to the very new redditor offering me a bounty to delete this thread - I’ll totally do it because cash is cash. But i don’t want to die either. So let’s do this publicly - I’m posting your message you sent me. And we can meet at the Monarch bar next week - I’ll be in town on Monday & will update this thread when I get to Monarch so we can meet. screencap of offer
