I am a frequent traveler who visits Houston on a monthly basis to conduct international affairs. First let me say, what happened to this hotel?! I have stayed here several times in the past, my last stay was this past November which was very enjoyable and what you would expect from a four star establishment. I checked in and stayed... More

J Lucas, while I appreciate you taking the time to share feedback from your recent stay, I am also very puzzled by it all, having received no message or incident report about the events that you are describing above. I assure you, Hotel Derek’s brand, leadership team and world-class clientele are not at all aligned with the experience that you’re... More

My hubby and I went to Houston for the Garth Brooks concert. We love the Hotel Derek. Our room was excellent. Great view of the City. Friendly staff. It was a relaxing time. We really enjoyed the bartenders. Rita and Mike were both fun and friendly. Deviled egg appetizer was delicious. The pool needed some cleaning attention on Sunday when... More

Not recommended for tall people who may trip on the bed frame that sticks out sharp on each corner where BOTH my legs were bleeding from it. I'm not able to wear shorts this weekend now because of this or swim. I had to place pillows on each side of the bed to avoid the hazard. This is in the... More

Stay there for a 3 day in a 80 person Business meeting. Nice hotel, comfortable, and friendly staff. Excellent location at walking distance from the Galleria Mall and downtown Houston. Good sport bar and restaurant.

The Galleria is a “must” while you are here in H-Town – so thrilled to hear that you enjoyed being our guest at Hotel Derek! Come back soon for another visit, but make it leisure next time so that you can explore the city in more depth. Cheers, More

I stayed at this hotel years ago when it first opened and returned a few months ago during a very long road trip. The hotel needs to be renovated very badly, and the rooms are WORN out. The problem with parking (you have to circle the hotel twice before finding that hidden entrance with that tiny sign) is awful, and... More

ICNNCI, we’re thrilled that you chose to return to Hotel Derek after all these years – thank you for being such a loyal guest. As you rightly noted, Hotel Derek’s location in the prominent Galleria can be a blessing and a curse, we hope more blessing (much more!). The traffic here in H-Town can be rough during rush hour, but... More

Modern meets romance I love the decor of this hotel but the friendliness of the staff is even more impressive! The location is perfect if you want to enjoy the galleria area...also the room service is delish!!! I try to book this hotel on every trip to Houston!

They advertise this place as a destination hotel. My only concern is the destination is a dump. It's really falling apart from a dirty lobby bathrooms that have been taped over and her unappealing. This must have been a motel in his previous life and doesn't deserve to be on any boutique list

I have been in this hotel Derek located in Galeria area for almost 3 weeks. The location is close to the biggest mall in Houston, the Galeria. There are some good restaurant around. But I got really upset from the hotel services they provide. They are not really cooperative and they respond very slow for your needs.

Manar, thank you for making Hotel Derek your home-away-from-home for the past three weeks! We’re so pleased to hear that you enjoyed the location and hopefully you managed to find time to enjoy the endless shopping and dining that’s within walking distance. I would like the opportunity to speak with you in more depth about the service experience that you... More
