Reviewed yesterday NEW

Great location. Lack of attention to detail in certain areas. Room wasn't cleaned and we had to request more towels since it was not attended to. The Breakfast was a disappointment. Beds are comfortable.

This hotel is not conducive to business travel. Get everything in writing, especially if the front desk makes a change to your reservation. I stayed at Hotel Derek for a business conference. While checking in, I spoke with the front desk staff and revised my stay from 3 nights to 2. The gentlemen I worked with said it was not...

Everyone has their own taste and what makes them happy. The staff is super friendly... The smell of the lobby is very pleasing.... I love this place ands will be back soon. Order the vegetable soup if you order room service, you will not be disappointed. I love this place!!!

The best way to describe the Hotel Derek is 2 Star Hotel Wrapped in 4 Star Packaging, a 4 star packaged hotel with a 2 star experience. Although I can't speak to much on the staff because they didn't say much it seems this hotel is running without management. The room was quick to check in too considering it was...

Wonderful customer service by Christopher at the Hotel Derek in Houston, His willingness to help us with multiple aspects of our stay made our time at the hotel rich and very smooth! This was our first adventure in hosting a regional event for Faith Comes by Hearing and we could not be more pleased. Great job!

The location is great but the room service phone went unanswered and then a basic breakfast for 2 was $80. Self parking on the top level was $25 per night and the elevator was broken. -- This was my 4th time to stay there and it didn't feel the same. Not sure I'll book again.

I'm a Platinum Marriott member and this hotel beat my expectations as a customer with NO status! Franco invited me with an amazing friendly welcome and I was a very early check in. Then I was greeted with amazing service in the restaurant by Alma 2 days in a row! She remembered my name from the first day! I highly...

If you are looking for a luxury hotel with a great Pool experience, skip Hotel Derek. The pool is about the site of a large Hot Tub. The Hotel is aging, and not what it once was. Room Service food is still good. Valet Parking is expensive. Overall if you get a good weekend rate on Hotels site for undress...
