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.

A nice deal and a nice stay

We decided to try out Hotel Derek because we got a great deal on the room. Overall, we were very pleased with our stay. It is a fun, happening hotel in a great location. We were close to the Galleria area, near some great restaurants. The room was nice. The walls are a little thin, so you definitely hear noise from the surrounding rooms. Luckily, the hotel staff was very accommodating and quickly assigned us a different room. We didn't have a great TV selection (but who needs that when there's plenty to do in Houston) and the workout room is also a nice amenity. We enjoyed it.

Location and helpful personnel

The location is excellent, close to major highways and upscale shopping centers including Galleria. Plus, the hotel shuttle bus takes you, for free, withing 3 miles radius. The concierge is kind and happy to help you. Although the personnel in the restaurant is courteous and efficient, the atmosphere and selection of foods are not for fine dining.

Hidden secrets....

The hotel was interesting and lovely, bell service, desk service, car service is all great...there are many people to assist you. The bar had interesting drinks and a nice atmosphere...the pool area was very small but calming, I enjoyed it there. We had a wedding reception and the cocktail area and reception area were lovely, we even had a baby grande for some tunes. The service was fair, the food was good. They took excellent care of the bride and groom. A bit of a line for drinks because one person was doing all of the work, while another employee watched.

Money-saving tip: Short walk from hotel

Le Peep was an awesome food venue, behind the hotel for breakfast, brunch or lunch. A bland and cold breakfast buffet for two at Hotel Derek was over 40 bucks. Healthy, fresh, great food is regular price for a short walk away. The eggs benedict was fab! Also, Derek resturant was terribly slow and you pay many, many taxes for hotel, daily parking with taxes, room service with 20% added and a $3.00 fee...You do need a good deal on the room to survive the fees and taxes when all is said and done. One of the members of my party said they did the math and you ended up paying around 25% taxes on the whole thing. Big City, what can you say. Just be prepared.

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.

Hotel Derek

Great hotel! The only downside was the valet only parking, here in Houston we are just not used to that! The hotel was clean and neat, only one small burn mark on the carpet of the room.

As advertised

The room looked exactly as it did in the pictures. Everything was clean. The guests were sophisticated. It was as advertised. The only thing I will say is do not pay extra for a "view". The building is not very tall and there is a highway on one side and a parking lot on the other. Comfort and elegance wise, it is great.
