Great time. Beautiful Hotel, chic decor, friendly, engaging staff. Wine and chocolate strawberries were a pleasant surprise. Nice room with a view of the Galleria area. Pretty at night. Spacious room, stayed nice n cool even when things got hot.....Staff made it great! Everyone pleasant and helpful! We'll go back again!

Hotel Derek is a fun place to stay with all the answers I need about how to get around Houston. The lobby, the rooms and the restaurant are trendy and a great place to just hang out. It's the on;y place I stay in Houston.

Hotel Derek is a beautiful hotel with a great, courteous staff. I have stayed here two times, and I will make reservations soon to return. The pool area is very nice, and the entire hotel is immaculate and the fragrance is wonderful throughout the property.

We love the fragrance as well – it is inspired by Tiffany’s Men’s Sport. We are pleased to hear that you enjoyed our newly renovated pool – hope you got to see some cool western movies in the evening hours. Look forward to seeing you again. Live Well, More

I would stay again at the hotel. The room was very nice, the service was excellent and the room service was great too. The location was close to the Galleria, which had a lot of fabulous restaurants and shopping. This hotel is one of the best ones I have stayed in, in a very long time.

Starbucks coffee in the room; nice. Room was quirky. Could do with a bigger/better bar or extra restaurant. Didn't get to the pool. Tried to walk to the Galleria mall which is about 500 yds away but took 35 mins as no one walks around in Houston and the traffic signals favour vehicles at all times.

Who can say no to Starbucks? We recently introduced this offering in the AM hours, but just wait until you discover it after 3pm, when it converts into a pop-up bar serving the best craft beers! We are a bold design choice in H-Town and we’re thrilled that you enjoyed us! Look forward to welcoming you back to Hotel Derek... More

The location of the hotel is very good, easy to reach from airport and to get access to the highway system, also close to Galleria for shopping. It has a small but nice Fitness facility and the Bar is well assorted. Rooms are nice and clean. Parking is very good weather you do it yourself or valet. Try visit the... More

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
