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.

Not what I paid for

I used a website to book my hotel. I paid for the standard two bed room and paid extra to get the two beds. I get to the hotel, and they say that they have no more room with two bed, but they can charge me an extra 25 a night for a roll in bed. I spend 30 extra dollars over the one king bed room and they want an extra 25 a night one top of that? I would not ever go back again!

One night stand

Hotel was a bit pricey and valet parking is a pain, since the parking garage is adjacent to the hotel.

Beautiful Hotel

The Hotel Derek was a very pretty hotel, but the room was just okay. I expected a nicer hotel room. Great location! The best thing I liked about the hotel was the service. Excellent, excellent service!!! The staff at the hotel was very friendly & accomodated all our needs. Overall, I would recommend this hotel to friends and family.

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.
