I stayed at the Derek for three nights in February. The purpose of my stay was a business conference. For this purpose, I thought that the hotel was sufficient. The room (cleanliness, size, amenities, etc.) was decent. It felt like a Courtyard by Marriott. There is a CVS pharmacy and Italian restaurant conveniently located across the street. The Galleria is also within walking distance. However, this is a very unfriendly pedestrian area. I felt uncomfortable crossing the street and walking to the mall because the cross walk signals are very short and the drivers are aggressive. We ate Sunday brunch in the hotel’s restaurant, and the service was very poor. The food served during the conference-sponsored meals was good. Overall, I don’t recommend this hotel when visiting Houston for leisure.
