The hotel is very modern, the room is very confortable, the shuttle is very useful, the food in Restaurant is very good, is an excellent option to stay on Houston. Also the pool is very nice, because also you can see movies there in the afternoon

Good: nice rooms, courteous staff, decent breakfast, not too noisy, free parking, good location! Bad: wifi sucks, housekeeping irregular. Overall a decent hotel near the Galleria but they are not affiliated with any major frequent stayer programs.

It has been a couple of decades since I left college and I honestly wasn't thinking about going back in time when I booked my reservation at the Derek. It had been a long day when I arrived and I was tired. The hotel is hip and trendy and the service is very good. I really only had three issues... More

We are thrilled to hear that you find Hotel Derek to be a hip and trendy spot, but we hate that fellow patrons took away from the experience that you should have had as our guest. Hotel Derek is a 100% non-smoking facility – though some skirt those rules with little regard for others. I can assure you the weekend... More

Planned a tween girls' hotel sleepover here because it is a fun and funky venue. Upscale enough to be a real treat, but not too pricey for mom. From the piped in smell to the rotating laser lights and brightly colored cow-themed furniture in the lobby, it was all a bit too overstimulating for my group of nerdy 12-year-olds. The... More

must say this was one of the best hotels, from the moment I arrive until departing I was greeted with warm smiles and good service. Jim Carry the concierge gentleman was over the top amazing.

I my wife and I stayed here this past weekend and we're greatly disappointed. There are so many good hotels in the Houston Galleria area that you don't need to experience the same disappointment. They have replaced their fine dining restaurant with a pool table, sandwiches and a Starbucks kiosk. Their front desk personnel is untrained and uncaring. We won't... More

We appreciate your feedback… Its comments like yours that help us continue evolving into a fun and enjoyable place to stay. While we love the new restaurant concept, giving guests rich southern cuisine with a fun and approaching space, we realize it may not be the ideal spot if your preference is fine dining. Thank you again for your visit... More

I felt I was in Las Vegas. Great decor from the hotel with a party vibe but the staff wasn't friendly. They didn't get my check in time correct so I had to wait. They didn't even thank me for my stay.

I originally discovered this place because I was on a business trip and this was close to where I needed to be. It was convenient and looked pretty cool. We loved it so much that we returned time and time again...even when our meeting place closed. So, when I had a leisure trip planned to Houston, I looked to return... More

Hotel Derek is a nice hotel with quirky decor and hip music playing everywhere for the younger movers and shakers age 20-40. I did not see any children on our weekend visit. They have stocked each room with an icebox bar full of beverages for sale and also a tray of candy bars sits on the dresser.. Candy bars are... More

Found this hotel on Groupon, what a gem! I really love the hip decor and the little spaces that are designed to sit and have private conversations.The pool is small but tucked into a secluded outdoor "corner" of the hotel, so no direct sun but still an outdoor experience with lovely lounge chaises. The staff are fun and friendly. Everything... More
