I stayed at Hotel Derek during a long layover for an international trip. Upon arrival, the receptionist informed me that my room would be automatically upgraded for free! The room was modernly styled with a great view of the Houston sunrise, and a comfy, clean bed. The hotel has a nice, stylish gym area with clean towels, free water bottles,... More

I had the pleasure of staying at Hotel Derek in Houston on a recent business trip, and I couldn't have been happier with my experience. From the moment I walked in I could tell that this wasn't a typical hotel. The décor was contemporary and unique and the overall atmosphere was upbeat and a pleasure to the senses. I stayed... More

I have stayed at Hotel Derek a number of times when traveling for business and have always been happy with my stay. The rooms are nice and the staff is friendly. The restaurant downstairs is convenient for when you don't want to have to go out after a full day of working, and the food tastes great. Hotel is in... More

The Derek was well situated to meet my expectations and needs. I stayed at the Hotel for business and enjoyed my stay there. I experienced one problem with my room not being ready, but the staff responded quickly and even upgraded my room.

Where do I start from? Check-in was fast and the lady was extremely friendly, then to the room. It's small and so is the bathroom, the bathtub had stains close to the drainage and the bed had some kind of unflattering foam on the headboard which has frayed edges. Breakfast was a big scam, very limited things to choose from.... More

I enjoyed my three night stay at Hotel Derek. The room was nice, clean, and comfortable. When we complained about our neighbors playing loud music at one in the morning, they sent someone up right away to take care of it. The only problem was at check in, which took forever. They didn't seem to know what to do with... More

The hotel tries very hard to present a trendy vibe, with funky furnishings and club music playing throughout the public areas. The decor is fun and different from your standard hotel. The room was clean and comfortable and had a nice view of the downtown skyline. It was a nice experience overall. Things to watch out for: Room service -... More

Nice hotel. "Customer Service" needs work. Troubles checking in, because husband's name was not on the reservation, though he could've showed ID and the credit card used for the reservation. I sat on hold for 10 minutes waiting to talk to someone to clear it up. The bed seemed short, and was also "short sheeted." My feet rested on the... More
