Easy access to the BBQ cookoff at NRG Stadium. Starbucks just down the road. Great restaurant on site. Try the pork belly with Brussels Sprouts. Clean room with fast WiFi . Would stay there again. CVS right across the street.

Let's start with "why, when they have your credit card on file would they feel it necessary to charge a $100/night security deposit on your room. Yes, that is $100 per night. Once you check out it is supposedly refunded on your credit card. I hope the charge and credit are in the same billing cycle or it will incur... More

This is a kitschy modern cowboy-inspired hotel. If rattlesnake wallpaper and Ikea-like lighting fixtures are your thing, the Hotel Derek is the place for you. The room was clean and the bed was comfy. Where else but Texas will you find a steer in the lobby? Hands down the worst John Wayne imitation I've ever heard was via the morning... More

Very much enjoyed my stay at the Hotel Derek. Nice, spacious room, that contains virtually any amenity one would want. Couch, desk, and a frig. Great lobby restaurant and Starbucks stand for "grab and go" breakfast. Shower head was a little funky. Comfortable beds. Good location off the 610 S near the Galleria. The only negative, perhaps, was that my... More

This hotel had mixed reviews, however we enjoyed our stay & would stay again. The decor & security, proximity to Galleria, atmosphere are the best features. It is a boutique hotel. It has a drink reception free in lobby not advertised. The shuttle is free, you may have to be assertive & get the run around outside to get it.... More

We stayed at Hotel Derek in June 2014 and loved our couple of nights there. We booked a Junior Suite, but after I had booked, took up the option to tweet our stay and was sent a voucher for a room upgrade, so we ended up in the Terrace Suite. The room was enormous! We were really impressed with the... More

the lobby is beautiful. The room not so much. You can tell it is an old hotel room that has been dressed up. Popcorn ceiling, old closet doors that won't close just right, and a not so pleasant looking shower and bath.For the price I had expected something a little bit nicer. On the plus side, it is only 10... More

I travelled from the UK and stayed at Hotel Derek for a business trip over a weekend. We normally stay at more widely known hotels, but in this case the booking was made for me and I didn't know what to expect. The multi-coloured replica bull in the entrance lobby provided a clue... The theme is what I interpret to... More

I had a special birthday request for my fiancee's 35th birthday, that Jim C. executed flawlessly. First impressions... they nailed it! Best arrival experience I have ever encountered at a hotel. Cleanliness of my guest room was impeccable. The bed and linen were clean and comfortable. All of the hotel staff were kind, smiled and made us feel very welcomed.... More
