Bold contemporary designs with features like hardwood and black granite floors, exposed pipes, and artwork by Arthur Meyerson ensure that Hotel Derek in Houston has a unique ambience compared with more understated accommodations. Drenched in southern hospitality, the AAA Four-Diamond award-winning restaurant serves hearty dishes like the Hangover Burger and Inverted Grilled Cheese, while chic cocktails and craft beers are available evenings at the bar. The only boutique hotel inside the Houston 610 Loop, splash out on a Penthouse Suite for floor-to-ceiling windows looking out over the Galleria, or try the urban Loft for a seating area and king-sized bed.

Neighborhood

The Derek Hotel Houston is centrally located in the heart of the city, close to the famous Galleria-which is the largest mall in Texas-as well as Greenway Plaza, meaning shopaholics are in good hands. Nature lovers can take a stroll around the trails of Houston Arboretum, while the aquarium and zoo are perfect for kids. A good selection of cultural museums, including the Museum of Fine Arts and Contemporary Arts Museum, are also situated in this neighborhood.

Hints and tips

Dining tip: Short walk from hotel

I ate in the hotel restaurant one night - nice but slightly formal. Second night I walked across the street to Grotto - surprisingly good and a little more casual. A great choice - especially if dining alone. Room service breakfast in the hotel was very good.

Shortest King Sized Bed EVER!

My feet hung off the edge of the supposed King-sized bed. It was very wide but much, much too short. The noise from the nearby freeway was very loud. I am surprised there were not double pained windows considering the hotel is across the street from a very busy freeway. Also the drapery could have blocked out more light.

Shopping tip: Short walk from hotel

Galleria is only two blocks away. Disregard my score on the dining options--we didn't eat at the hotel, but this stupid survey doesn't allow you to leave that blank.

Not impressed...

We went for a Valentine's weekend. You can ONLY valet your car ($20 a night they don't tell you about online). The shuttle was supposed to be available till 2:00 a.m. but was not. Housekeeping knocked on the door THREE times before our check out time. Called valet from our room and they didn't get our car until we got downstairs with the claim check.

My Favorite Hotel In Houston

We travel all the time & we have stayed at 5 or 6 other very nice 5 star hotels in Houston before we tried Hotel Derek... And that was it!! I LOVED IT! Now, everytime we go to Houston I make sure we stay there. From making a reservation, check-in, to the call for anything extra the staff makes sure your stay is perfect!!! I recommend it to EVERYONE! Thank you Hotel Derek for another great time!

Upscale and modern get away

Very nice hotel top professional service. Very clean. Great location! Modern rooms. Although the heater wasn't working after 2 call the engineer came to fix it. We awoke early morning from being so cold called the complaint again. The engineer came in and replaced a part took about twenty min. He deeply sorry and we had no problems from then on with the heat but the tub wasn't draining very well all wk end it took 10 min for the shower water to go down. If it wasn't for the two problems I would say it was perfect stay.

so close...yet so far

Excellent contemporary style. Single-pane glass does not insulate you from sounds of I-610...even at 15th floor. Outstanding location for shopping and dining. Room service prompt, but food was average. Did not eat in restaurant. Front desk had a difficult time finding [...]reservation, but no problems...just slowed the process. A/C would not adjust above 64F. VERY firm pillows.
