What you will find is a charming hotel with a little dolce vita, says Cinda Murphy- Palacios (aka Lulu), who opens the hotelcita with her husband, Armando Palacios, this month. Hotel Lulu, with the first piscina in Round Top proper, is the latest offering in the Palacios Murphy Hospitality group: Lulu's, Mandito's Tex Mex, and Popi Burger in Round Top. Hotel Lulu, which offers urban amenities in a charming small town, is comprised of six historic bungalows on the square formerly known as Bybee Square, and an additional off-site Annex with three charming cottages that sleep up to 10 (guests have pool and room- service access). The atmosphere at Hotel Lulu begs one to slow down and enjoy a Negroni poolside. Pop into Lulu's restaurant adjacent to the hotel. Rooms start at $175 per night. Hotel Lulu, 204 E. Mill St., Round Top, 979.249.5171, Anne Lee Phillips (Continued on page 96) 94
