This hotel is beautiful, it reminds me of a boutique hotel in New York City. I don't travel to Houston much but now I'm trying to find reasons to go back with friends and family just to stay at this hotel.

Really enjoyed our stay at Hotel Derek, clean rooms with great decor. Central location near the Galleria. Pet friendly hotel, the chef makes the best dog treats! They offer a complimentary shuttle to local attractions, bars, and restaurants. We would definitely revisit this Hotel.

Walking distance to the Galleria and great restaurants. Hotel lobby and elevators ALWAYS, 3 different stays, smell like cheap cologne. Hotel theme tries to be too trendy and came off looking cheap & old

This is the only hotel I have stayed in in over 20 years of business travel that imposes a non-optional "service charge" aka Tax ($12/day) on check-out. I have no problem with the principle of a service charge but it is used by this hotel to reduce their advertised rate and this is wrong. The manager will respond by telling... More

Not exaggerating. I live in Houston, and I am always willing to spend a few bucks or two just to live in this fantastic hotel. I have stayed in this hotel a few times, and every time, I am impressed by the service I receive. From the front desk to the wonderful individuals in room service.

First impression was good. Decore is pretty unique. Music in lobby is too loud and gets old really quickly. Bathrooms in lobby stink and some of the faucets don't work. Hallways and bedroom stink like nursery cleaner. Bathtub doesn't drain well and you find yourself standing in water up to your ankle. Overall it is a great concept that has... More

Ouch…Well we nailed the first impression but sounds like we skinned our chin after that. There are so many areas for opportunity here and please let me assure you that this is not the norm and certainly not what most of our guests encounter when staying at our hip & happening boutique. Our hotel scent is actually inspired by Tiffany’s... More

Love this hotel. Enjoyed my night as the room was clean,comfortable,and aesthetically pleasing. The check in was fast and painless. The checkout was also effortless. Very modern with a touch of back home cooking. Will definitely recommend this hotel to all family and friends!

The first room had a dirty tub, they moved us and the other room bathroom and closet door was falling apart. They nickle and dime you to death at this hotel. Charge for valet parking (understandable), charge for self park (no reason for this), charge for refrigerator, charge for microwave, 5 different tax, a $12.00 a night convenience fee (I... More

Bellman spoke no English. Welcome gift never arrived. Food sounds good, but tastes less than fresh. Did not have Texas Longhorns game in bar. Valets never had car ready even after calling in advance. Location is great!

Wow… located in the heart of Texas, the very least we can do is have the Longhorns game on for viewing! I apologize for this, as well as the other unfortunate events that transpired during your stay from valet to our culinary offerings. These are definitely not the typical comments that we receive from our guests so I am at... More
