This hotel's decor was really nice. The room was standard size. The room decor and big window was nice too. The rooms bathroom and shower was small compared to other hotels I stayed at with this same pricing point. It seemed a little outdated to me. The two things that turned me off from the hotel was the elevator and... More

We stayed there for Halloween and immediately upon check in we were greeted by the staff with smiles and energetic check in agents. The ambiance was fun and keeping in theme with Houston, hotel has a creative name. The room was spacious, comfortable and we had a nice view of Houston. The next day we ate breakfast at the hotel...

The hotel is well located in the Galleria area of Houston. The room was very spacious with a chic decor. The bed was amazingly soft. Everything was very clean. Complementary Starbucks coffee always a hit in the morning! :)

Nice modern hotel with good rooms. I stayed at 711 which overlooked the highway towards the Galleria. I don't think there are rooms with perfect views. I had dinner at the hotel restaurant. Good food. There are a lot of restaurants in the area that are good, too. The hotel has happy hour during the weekdays around 5pm in the... More

I was skeptical at first, but when I arrived at the hotel, I was taken aback by how chic it looked and felt. The staff is super friendly and this is what makes me wanting to come back again. I definitely recommend this hotel to friends and family.

Centrally located with nice rooms and nice people- shower and bathroom faucets did not work well. Room maintenance is declining. Requested room by elevator and given a room far away from it. good price.

We have stayed here several times even though we only live about 40 miles north of the hotel. It's fun, different and modern but comfortable. Whenever we meet friends for a night out in the area we like to stay. Even after a night out downtown or at the rodeo it's not too far away. Great deals online too. Breakfast... More

I stayed here for a few days prior to my wedding. Several of my friends also booked rooms in the hotel for a total of 4 rooms for three days--a pretty penny at this place. Unfortunately, it was not the fun, decadent experience that I expected. First, it took a while to get checked in when we arrived. The shuttle... More

Dear Bride, I am extremely surprised and sorry to read your comments, especially the exchange you had with our guest services team. I would welcome the opportunity to connect with you and discuss further? With regards to the chauffeured car service, it is a very popular amenity and one our leisure guests take full advance of, because it is a... More

Two words, "incredible service"! I booked the Hotel Derek for my "seasoned" parents who were celebrating their anniversary. Upon booking, the hotel sent two personalized emails detailing their services. While there are no packages, per se, the staff will work to customize your amenities (i.e.; chocoate covered strawberries, champagne, rose petals, etc. ) The location is great, with close proximity...

This is an older hotel but you would never know it. Completely remodeled. Beautiful rooms, restaurant and bar. Bed was very comfortable. Walking distance to the Galleria. Parking is an issue. Valet parking could not start my car so I had to walk up into the parking garage to retrieve my own car. However I would definitely stay here again.
