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

I came from out of town to stay at Hotel Derek for the weekend and its was the most horrible experiance I've ever recieved. We had to stay at the desk without anyone checking us in for at least 5 minutes. The lobby and dinning area is very nice. Once we got off the elevator on the 11th florr they... More

This hotel is massively let down by its rooms. So let’s start with the good – as you walk in you are greeted with a fancy lobby, trendy décor and upbeat music. It sets a nice tone. The gym is a decent size, with complimentary towels, water and fruit – I didn’t use the pool but I think it’s a... More

Bar and restaurant have a nice scene. Centrally located to the Galleria shopping area (includes hotel shuttle). Only real modern boutique hotel in the immediate area. Hosts many weddings and parties, so hotel may be mostly booked by guests.

I stay at The Hotel Derek often. I have always been satisfied with the hotel. My last visit on July 25 was exceptional. I woke that morning with a migraine. I had to go to the pharmacy for medication. The staff was very concerned about my well being. The front desk agent and concierge checked on me throughout the day... More

I've been already 2 times in the hotel and both times I had a great time. Well located in the Galleria area for my business meetings. Staff so friendly, modern style hotel where you feel so confortable. Only problem they need to improve wifi sign, too slow.

We were on the road and not sure where we were going to stay and ran across this hotel. Never heard of it and we were very weary about staying but when we got there, everything was perfect. The only issue (wasn't a problem) was there was a mix up in rooms but as soon as we went back down... More

First of all, you should know that the hotel will charge you for self-parking for about $20 a night. So, you might want to make some room for your hotel budget. I booked for 3 nights and 4 days to visit my friends who recently moved to Houston. The first impression I got from this hotel is how difficult to... More

I booked a loft style room. Upon checking in I confirmed they were sending me to a loft room. The man said we were booked for a standard room, but he would fix it for us. He then sent us to a standard room anyway. We had to call the front desk and wait for a loft room to become... More

I arrived for a several week stay for business and didn't love my room. I talked to the woman at the front desk and she moved me to a new room, meeting all my requests. She was even nice about it! The breakfast is also good, better quality than other hotels at the same price point.

Laura, so thrilled to hear that we were able to impress you during your last stay with us at Hotel Derek! We hope that you took some time for yourself to enjoy the cozy pool and the movie wall in the evening hours. And… we agree, you can’t go wrong with our southern cuisine breakfast, it is one of the...
