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.

My review of Hotel Derek

The valet parking was extremely poor. The rooms appeared out dated, and the bathroom was small. There were stains on the carpet and furniture. The location is conveniently close to the freeway and within walking distance of the mall. I felt that this was the hotels best asset. My expectations for this hotel were pretty high, but unfortunately were not lived up to.

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.

Hotel Review

Nice room and nicely located in the Galleria in Houston. Seems to cater to the party crowd as we heard noise in the hall until 3am. General location is good during the day but noisy at night. Any hotel of this price range that offers 'intimacy' packs for 8.00 kinda tells you what kind of crowd they typically get. I wouldn't bring my kids but probably would bring my ... ;-)

Iloved the hotel but the pictures made pool look alot bigger then it was. I was not happy with the pool area at all also it is blocked by building so it gets no sun. Staff was very nice room was beautiful and they really are pet friendly.

Poor weekend experience

Checked in 3:30 PM Saturday, August 13. Full house. With no mention at check-in, we were shunted to the wheel-chair accessible room (1005). One pillow, two (small) towels and one bath sheet, burnt out light bulbs left in the hanging penant light, one robe. Clearly the room supplies had been stripped in this neglected room. Twenty minutes later, we got housekeeping to resupply the room. Too late for us to demand another room since we were headed out to a wedding. Sad experience. I remember the Derek on many previous occasions when the hotel staff provided a flawless experience. Hope the management gets it together.

Don't pay for extras

The service was very basic. The room was attractive and clean, with above-average bedding. We agree with other reviewers about the mandatory valet parking--there's no way I'm paying an extra $19 a night for parking when I can park on the street three blocks away. So we hoofed it to and from the car just to avoid the swarm of valets. Not the best experience. Also--beware the $7 bottle of Fiji on the desk that is actually a stray from the minibar and not a gift. Hidden charges all over this place.
