Room is very dirty and dusty. It was so dusty due to lack of cleaning, allergies acted up from the dust and I feel ill. Amenities are less than expected. The free happy hour get together is a joke, they run out of wine within 30 min so you have to get there early.

Ugly, non functional lobby, old elevators, funky and worn out room furniture.Upgraded decent bathrooms. Tiny pool area. Horrible food options, 1 restaurant or maybe bistro not very well defined, the food is at most average, was served a coldish eggplant lasana, one of the few non meat items on a sparse menu. Breakfast is expensive $15 for continental and $21... More

Well, we’re thrilled that most don’t share your sentiments… Hotel Derek completed a multi-million dollar design renovation last year and while we realize it’s impossible to cater to everyone’s taste, that is certainly our goal and has won us a Forbes Travel Guide Four-Star rating for two consecutive years. I am surprised and disappointed to learn of your dining experience... More

The hotel exterior, lobby, and room have a modern and colorful design. The room was clean and comfortable. The views we had not very good. The parking is very inconvenient. Driving in to the hotel is narrow and difficult. If somebody is ahead of you, you can not move. We opted for self parking which costs $20. You have to... More

Parking can be tricky in Houston’s Galleria, given the popularity of this neighborhood! We’re very lucky to have both a valet and self-parking option, something of a luxury in this space which allows guests the option and something more affordable than most. I do apologize that you were awoken by Housekeeping on your departure day – and we will share... More

In this hotel, you get to capture so many great view/s, you get to see the tallest building and also you have stores around the neighborhood that is a walkable distance from the hotel. Another impressive aspect of this hotel is the interior painting and design, it's one of the best design I have ever seen in a while. If... More

We were in Houston for only a day and being new to Texas we wanted to get the most out of our experience so we stayed at hotel Derek. We were extremely pleased with our experience. The hotel had a very modern and artsy "Texan" feel or at least what I imagine Texas is supposed to feel like. It's located... More

Welcome to Houston – you’re going to love it here! We’re so thrilled to hear that you enjoyed our modern and Texan style of Hotel Derek during your stay! The burger you are referring to… was it the Hangover? If so, that’s one of our favs too! Come back soon, whether for an overnight stay or drinks and dinner in... More

Stayed there at the advice of friends. Hotel is in a good location. First, the good: Terrific staff. The valet, bell staff and front desk were engaging and genuine. The odd: there is a very pungent perfume like smell throughout the entire lobby. It is overwhelming and people with sensitivities to such things will not like it. From a security... More

Very well priced, we were staying at Marriott and need to extend stay. Could not extend at Marriott so got 5 rooms at Derek for almost half the price. Staff were great and couldn't do enough to help out. Great bar with plenty of room to meet informally as group. Rooms are really funky and well decked out. Starbucks coffee... More

This Hotel offers value for money accomodation for your stay in Houston. It is situatuated close to the Loop so you can walk to the Galleria shopping complex and catch a cab down town if that is where you meetings are. The hotel does operate a free shuttle for locations close to the hotel. The bar is lively, the rooms... More

Was so excited to book this hotel after seeing the great pictures online. We arrived a little before 3pm and our room was not ready. They said they would give me a call when it is ready, so we went to the bar and had a drink. After about an hour, husband went to front desk and yes it was... More

I've stayed at many hotels in Houston but have always been hesitant to book Hotel Derek because of how low the price - I thought it wasn't likely to be as nice as the pictures make it seem. Well I was gravely mistaken. This is one of the best deals for the money that I have ever experienced. The service... More
