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.

tired makeover

I will start with the negatives. If the rooms matched up with the lobby it would have been great. However as with most of these makeover hotels the room itself remains a poorly disguised holiday inn and an old one at that. The hotel is very noisy from the traffic on the interstate to the guests it attracts ( I was there from Friday to Monday). The pillows are hard as rocks and between the road noise and that it makes it very hard to get a good nights sleep. The pluses are the price and location. It is a bargain hotel and its proximity to Houston shopping is great.

Nice hotel a decent price

While I think the hotel's attempt at ultra-chic styling fell a little short. It was a nice comfortable room just a short hop from the Galleria. One small drawback is that being situated on the intersection of major roads you can't really walk anywhere, but the Hotel had a complimentary shuttle within 2 miles which was fantastic.

My review of Hotel Derek

I did not like that we had to leave the day after the hurricane with no where to go. They said we would be refunded our money, but it took me 3 weeks to even get through.

Houston Gem

The Hotel Derek was a real deal. I was greeted by a friendly staff, and was wisked up to my room without delay. The room was very modern and clean, as well as spacious. The bathroom was very adequite, with a full vanity counter, with sink and mirrors. I would recommend this Hotel to any business person, as well as to any famity traveler. The location of the hotel is very central to a very large shopping mall, and is accessable to Loop I-610.

Hotel was alright

No room in hotel has windows that open, hence AC for 3 nights was tough. Hotel staff is not 100% on service oriented. Nice rooms.

Great Location

We found this location to be very convenient for a weekend visit. We were able to get many places quickly and easily, and many stores, resturants, sites and restuarants were not far away, we did not have to always get on the highway system. The Bed was comfy with the big down comforter. Only 2 DVD players available for the whole hotel, and we did not get one when we requested one upon check-in. Staff very friendly always, minus one front desk person--he needs to be in a position that does not require conversation. Would stay again.
