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?

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 The bathroom is a bit outdated but nothing too bad.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!

I enjoyed my stay at the Hotel Derek. My room was clean and I really loved the atmosphere. The only issue I encountered was I paid an extra 65.00 for a birthday package which included late check out only to have a gentleman from housekeeping attempt to come barging in the room a few minutes after 11:00 and yelling checkout...

Happy Belated Birthday from the entire team at Hotel Derek! I am so sorry for the miscommunication between our housekeeping and front office departments that resulted in this parting impression – not the b-day celebration that we wanted for you. I would like very much to connect with you and arrange for you to receive something fitting on your next... More

I selected this hotel as it is in good location and the hotel seemed clean and proper. But i am writing this at 4 am woken up by loud people and lots of running around since 3 am. Nobody taking care of it, guest services not answering calls and still conversations going on. After making reservation, i got several heartwarming... More

Marty, we great appreciate the time you’ve taken to share your feedback with us. You certainly encountered some unique circumstances that I assure you are not commonplace here at Hotel Derek, and are likely due to the inexperience of a new member of our team that is still getting acquainted in their role, and for that I offer my sincerest...
