I spent the last few days at this fun, colourful hotel with a retro theme in the heart of Houston. It is centrally located with great shopping and restaurants nearby. My room was very comfortable and spacious and I loved the large windows that let in a lot of natural light. I loved going to the fitness centre, Sweat, that... More

My husband and I stayed at Hotel Derek for two nights with our 5 and 7 year old. Reading some of the other reviews I thought it would be an okay stay. It wasn't. I highly do not recommend this hotel for families. It is more suitable for college students. First off the self parking garage is not conveniently located... More

Sabrinasfamily, I am extremely sorry to learn of your experience while being our guest recently. I can assure you, the situations that you’ve kindly taken the time to share are not reflective of the typical ‘Hotel Derek experience’ and certainly not the impression we want to leave you with. I would welcome the opportunity to visit with you directly, by... More

First of all the Hotel Derek is a nice eclectic hotel that has some really neat features (nightly movies by the pool, free happy hour - literally an hour, neat furniture, etc). My only issue (and its a big one) is that housekeeping needs to "step it up". Light fixtures, remotes, were disgustingly filthy - to the point I used... More

Loved it, will return again when in Houston. The room was large, the bed was very comfortable, and the atmosphere was quite interesting. I wish I had splurged to purchase the robe that was available for use in the room, who doesn't love cow print?

I know… it takes serious resolve to pass up on a designer cow-print robe, but don’t worry, you can get one on your next visit! Thank you for making Hotel Derek your home in Houston! Live. Work. Play. More

The Hotel Derek has a very vibrant local flavor and from your entrance into the lobby, you feel as though Texas can be fun for the casual visitor who expects great service and amenities for a fair price. Hotel stays in the Galleria area of Houston has always come to mean $$$$ and very little choice. Hotel Derek is a... More

Took a trip to Houston with some friends. We stayed at the Hotel Derek due to its proximity to the Galleria and shops. We came away a little underwhelmed. The hotel bar closed early, so we had to leave the bar to drink pretty early. Valet was nice. Trendy spot.

Thank you for being our guest at Hotel Derek! We dig your comments about the hotel’s trendy vibe – thank you! Our newly designed REVOLVE Kitchen + Bar does close at midnight – its our experience that most fairytales start to fade around this time! That said, there are an endless supply of great restaurants and bars that serve until... More

I stayed at the Derek for work several times. This hotel has a Vibe that reminds the standard in LA. The rooms are not huge but good enough. Watch out as the walls are thin and you can hear easily noise from the rooms next doors. The bathroom is a bit outdated but nothing too bad. Breakfast area is spacious... More

Hotel Derek was just the escape weekend we needed. It is bright and quirky quite like we are. And has easy access to the Galleria and many great dining spots. The environment was conducive to all our likes, the work out area the bar, the decor and of course the room. Our room had a view of downtown Houston and... More

My stay couldn't have been better. Loved the room, movie nights at the pool and definitely the personal service. Everyone there was wonderful. Especially the concierge, Jim Carey. Thanks again for that Tex-Mex.

I stayed here just one night on business. After checking in super late, I was upgraded to a massive room on a high floor. The room had great amenities and the hotel staff was friendly and helpful. One thing to note - after 11pm the food options are severely limited!
