Hotel much higher end than the price reflects. Sleek, modern feel. Young hip crowd in the common areas.Genuine Expedia guest review

"Nice hotel near Galleria, but pool is a bit lackin"
This is a great hotel to stay at if you are interested in shopping at the Galleria and offers a shuttle service within a 3 mile radius. However, during our down time we wanted to just lay by the outdoor pool which I read somewhere as having plenty of sun. The sun doesn't even hit the pool until close to noon, and then you have to chase it toward the […] back wall. But if you aren't concerned about the pool, this is a nice hotel in a great location.

"Great place to stay"
The stylish Hotel Derek is reasonably priced and in a great location. The staff could not be nicer. Cool music permeates the lobby and elevator; the lighting and furnishings are interesting. My only disappointment was the size of the pool and that it was rather cold. But there is a nice patio where you can relax, and lots of small cubby hole rooms to […] sit and talk. Enjoy!

Response by Hotel Derek Houston Galleria Thrilled to hear that you enjoyed the renovated hotel. Please know that we currently remodeling the pool area and I encourage you to come back and visit us next month so that you can experience the new splash pool. Live Well,
"Stylish and Comfortable"
This quick one evening stay was a most comfortable one at this stylish, busy hotel. The staff was pleasant and helpful. The room was spacious, clean, and certainly comfortable. The location is excellent.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Response by Hotel Derek Houston Galleria So pleased to hear that you enjoyed your stay at our very stylish Hotel Derek. We will be sharing your wonderful feedback with our staff. Look forward to welcoming you back soon. Live Well,
"Attempting to be fashionable"
The hotel is clean and tidy with very helpful and friendly staff. I would classify this as a medium budget hotel. My biggest complaint was being woken up to what sounded like a drug deal gone bad or a domestic dispute at 5:00 am. Not an ideal hotel for a business trip.Genuine Expedia guest review
Convenient location, great value. Big, comfortable room, good-quality bed, linens, towels, etc. If the over-the-top "boutique hotel" design style was trying a bit too hard to be hip, that's a small price to pay for an overall stay experience that far exceeded my expectations for the ppprice. I'll definitely stay here again.Genuine Expedia guest review
Response by Hotel Derek Houston Galleria Thank you for staying with us at Hotel Derek! Hope that you were able to enjoy the wonderful shopping experience in the area. Come back and visit us again soon. Live Well,

Too expensive for the type of accomodations. No queen beds. If wanted a bigger bed, then a room with a king and a roll-a-way was recommened. Bar drinks were very expensive! I have stayed at better hotels in Houston for the same price- after all the taxes, a 128.00 room turned into a $150.00 room plus $20 for parking. Room cards didn't work in the parking […] garage & had to get assistance entering & exiting. The pool is too small for the amount of guests visiting over the weekend.

pretty good stay, however, we did experience no towels in room upon arrival which was immediately corrected. the next morning we had issues with the kuerig coffee...there wasn't enough coffee and when housekeeping brought more it was for a different type of brewing machine. that was just a hassle. it was corrected...just took more time.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Clean room, great food at the Vin. Friendly staff, unique, swanky environment. Great place to stay.Genuine Hotels.com guest review

"Deal Was too good to be true..."
4 star in galleria, sounded awesome considering the price was on par 2.5-3 star hotels... but you wanna park? $20 a NIGHT, want a microwave? $25 a NIGHT, refrigerator? $25 a NIGHT, safe? $25 a NIGHT. Honestly, I'm surpised the A/C didn't require a credit card. Hiltons, Hyatt's etc, are nicer and Besides that, I prepaid, big mistake! When you prepay, […] they got you. I reserved a 2 bed room for 4 people. Get there, Room isn't avaible they had one king room left, and no roll aways. (I was later called and told the roll away was available, for, $25 a NIGHT) full disclosure, They ended up not charging for the roll away. and compensating me for the room by giving me a night of parking and breakfast. I was too busy on this trip to argue any more. BUT DO NOT WASTE YOUR TIME, WOULD NOT STAY AGAIN. this is a 3star at best that makes you pay for things for the appearance of class.

Response by Hotel Derek Houston Galleria There are some awesome promotions available if you elect to book advanced rates with prepayment – certainly something we recommend and we’re thrilled to hear you got a great deal! Hotel Derek does not charge for safes or refrigerators/minibars – these come standard in every guestroom and suite. While we believe Hotel Derek is a very cool boutique hotel located in one of Houston’s hottest neighborhoods, we appreciate that we’re not for everyone. We hope that you enjoyed the parking and breakfast with our complements. Live Well,
"Convenient and Trendy Houston Galleria boutique"
The Hotel Derek is quintessentially Houston. Oil derricks and other modern Texas-style art and furniture pieces add funky charm to this boutique hotel. The rooms are modern and clean - even if not quite as spacious as you'd expect from the state known for its "everything's bigger" mantra. The pool was probably the biggest disappointment since all I […] wanted was to catch a couple rays and take a dip. The pool area is wedged in the back corner of the hotel - thankfully hidden from the Loop; however, the sun probably only shines through at high noon and the small triangular pool offers little room for more than a soak. The check-in staff was extremely friendly yet upon check out when we requested an hour extension the price they suggested go along with it seemed a bit steep and pretentious for a Monday morning. The valet staff, however, were all extremely friendly and overly accommodating and helpful! A comfortable, convenient and well-priced room for a totally Texas yet trendy hotel! I'd stay again.

"Too pricey for the quality level"
Rooms need to be cleaner and bathrooms need updating. Also staff did not make sure all the standard items were in the room daily. Such as the in room dining menu and the price sheet for the mini bar. Also rooms are cramped.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
It was comfortable and nice.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
SATISFIEDGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Stylish, comfortable and clean"
Having had a bad experience at another hotel in the Galleria area I reserved judgement until we actually spent the night. My first impression of the hotel was good. It was easy to park, get checked in, the staff was very friendly, the room had all the necessary comforts and was stylishly decorated and very clean. The workout facility was well kept and […] included the added bonus of free water, fruit, towels and anti-bacterial wipes. I enjoyed the convenience of an on-site starbucks for my morning coffee - although the in-suite mini-bar is well stocked with options. Overnight it was reasonably quiet. The shower was really nice. Two issues - the pillows are pretty thick so bring your own if that kind of thing bothers you and you have that option and the shower doesn't get super hot - hot enough but it feels like they have kind of locked down how hot you can make it. Certainly not a deal breaker, just surprised me a bit. Location is fantastic. We will definitely stay there again. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

"Clean Yet Over Priced & a $20 Parking Fee"
Nice hotel but they charge you $20 for parking in a parking garage with cameras only at the entrance of the garage. What am I paying $20 for if there is no security or cameras in the parking garage? This hotel is in the Galleria area so it is was very busy with lots of people. Also, there is a $21 breakfast buffet. There is no free continental breakfast […] offered to the guests that stay in the hotel. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

Non-traditional decor best described as "funky". Major problem with room is a side mounted fluorescent light fixture in the bathroom that is designer interesting but provides a glare on one side of the face and a shadow on the opposite despite a lower wattage conventional light source. Makes shaving difficult.Genuine Hotels.com guest review

It was a very nice looking hotel. The staff there is great very nice and very considerate. The only thing I found wrong was that the hotel shower was not very functional. It leaked from the wall and would not fully turn on the rainfall shower.Genuine Expedia guest review

A great location and very clean and upscale hotelGenuine Hotels.com guest review
My fiancé and I spent the night before July 4th to have some alone time. The hotel has a nice atmosphere and the staff was very friendly! The bar area could use a more relaxing atmosphere, it seemed a bit cold and bright. Luckily the sitting area right outside of the bar is great for mingling.Genuine Hotels.com guest review

"Great Service, Lumpy Pillows"
Service at the hotel was great, but the pillows are very lumpy and it was a bit awkward staying in a handicap room. I wish hotels.com would have alterted to the fact that the deal was based on the room being handicap accessible making the shower quite odd and messy (water everywhere) for a non-handicap party.Genuine Hotels.com guest review

"Not happy with my stay"
I recently stayed at hotel Derek with some friends of mine and I would have to say that it was not worth the amount we paid. First off, we were not aware that there is a madatory fee of 30 dollars per night, which I was told is common for the higher end hotels but nevertheless this was not mentioned until later on during our stay. Secondly, we found […] blood stains on our blankets at 5 in the morning and informed guest services who did not send housekeeping to change our linens until 6am; then when the gentleman showed up with new blankets he didn't speak English so he basically stared at me the entire time when i was requesting an entire linen change. We were handed two thin blankets and had to sleep on the same sheets that once had the bloody blankets on them. Thirdly, the breakfast they offer was about 25 dollars each and was not worth it, you can definitely find a cheaper breakfast spot with better food. The rooms were pretty small as well considering how much we paid...the only positive aspect about this hotel was that the valet, house keeping, and restaurant staff were so sweet and helpful. The people at guest services need to take tips from the other staff members there because the people at guest services were not friendly or helpful. Overall, we were not satisfied with our hotel stay at all, and will not be staying there ever again. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

"Hoping for more"
I booked this hotel after having had a meeting there for work and the lobby blew me away. I was very disappointed. The room felt more like a holiday in than a luxury hotel. On the "upgraded" room I bought there was a door that connected our room to the one next to it. Not something I want from a "high quality" hotel. There was some noise in the hallway […] from I am assuming drunk people but not something I like to hear. I got this for my new wife and I as a special 1 week of being married date and I was extremely let down and would not recommend this to anyone based on the room we had.
