I stayed for 4 nights while in Houston on business, I usual stay at the JW Marriott by the Galleria but I wanted a change. The pictures certainly enticed me I love staying at boutique style hotels that really get the modern aesthetic right.

Beautiful and Glamorous yet you still get that Texas feel and down south hospitality. Excellent service! The rooms are great, just as pictured on the website! Check in and check out was smooth! Even the valet staff exceeds expectations!

This hotel is an interesting change from what most business travelers are used to. Very interesting decor and a little bit "out there". I thoroughly enjoyed my stay. Parking (elevator is out the door and around the corner) is a bit of a pain and $20 a night to self park, so budget that into your calculations. Staff is friendly... More

We stopped in the Hotel Derek for 5 nights, whilst the room was good and the location very good, the internet connection was very poor. It cut out continually and Skype was impossible, so if you plan a business trip the speed of the wifi is definitely a problem!!!! Room cleanliness was very good but we had to continually chase...

Have stayed at the Derek on several occasions. It's location is good but can be difficult to navigate around rush hour. The rooms are quite comfortable bordering on contemporary but not so contemporary that its uncomfortable. The bar area is nice but loud and the restaurant is nothing to write home about. Stay here for location and comfortable rooms.

Reading previous reviews, I can see some of their pros and cons. Even though we were not on the side of the interstate, our window was above a busy bus stop even at 1am. Customer service was friendly and helpful. We did have a problem with valet service. They told us to call from our room 20 minutes before needing... More

I've stayed at the Hotel Derek a few times for work in October and December 2013 and really enjoyed this property. The style of the hotel is cool and very boutique-y. The service is consistently very pleasant and nice. The free shuttle to the Galleria is great for shoppers (thought it's also an easy walk). The room service is good... More

upon entering this establishment, your senses are overpowered by a perfumey smell that sent me into an asthma attack. It is supposed to be a smoke free hotel, but at 4:30 am my husband and I awoke to the stench of many cigarettes coming from one of the neighboring rooms. A call to the front desk and they sent some... More
