The hotel was beautiful, it was a mix between Aloft and the W hotel. Very beautiful on the inside, the rooms were modern and cozy. My only complaint was that the bed sheets and towels were hard and scruffy. It was probably time to throw those towels away. As far as the bed, usually the beds are always comfy and say "snuggle into me" but the sheets were […] not soft to the touch at all :( Even with that said, I would still recommend the hotel!

"Good hotel with minor flaws"
That valet parking was excellent. Also the bar was spacious and clean! The only thing I didn't like was the restroom door , it didn't have a lock and it was sliding door which was different but still a lock would of been great .Genuine Hotels.com guest review
love the place. The people and staff are brilliant and nice and it makes you feel like youre in a different place. The rooms are modern and comfortable.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"I would not stay here again"
Front desk is not warm and welcoming, very rude and not professional at all... They must hate their jobGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Nice and trendy"
Overall it was a fun place to stay. Lobby and bar area along with the pool was really nice. Only issue we had was we were given the key to someone else's room. Made me want to lock always my valuables but things were quickly corrected and we had a great stay!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
The hotel was wonderful! I enjoyed its central location (across the way from the Galleria, 5 minutes away from Montrose, and less than 15 minutes away from the Heights which served me well for Brunch and the bars!) I also really loved the spacious room I was given. The parking was a little steeply priced but it was a flat rate per day and I could leave […] when I wanted. The lobby was very modern but it felt like it stole a play out of Abercrombie & Fitch's book (comfy seating but strong scent you can't escape). Overall I loved my stay there and will continue to use this hotel in the future. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

Response by Hotel Derek Houston Galleria Thank you so much - we loved having you at Hotel Derek! See you soon. Live Well,
It was a great location. Very noisy rooms, the walls are paper thin. the price was right, considering the location. It sure makes me appreciate the peace and quiet when I stay in a better hotel though. The property is old, and even with all the funky décor, it's still needs a good cleaning and a face lift for sure.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Wedding Weekend Bliss!"
We stayed at the hotel on our wedding night & for one additional night. I had been perusing Galleria-area hotels and was watching the rates of a different hotel. I got an email from Hotels.com informing that a nearby hotel's rate had dropped below the other's for my dates. I was stoked when I saw the standard room rate of $109 (regularly $195). I made […] a note when booking that it would be our wedding night. We were THRILLED when we got to the room and realized it was NOT the standard room. Without any pomp or circumstance, they had upgraded us to the Terrace Suite (running close to $700/night). The room was AMAZING (as was the view - wall to wall, floor to ceiling windows!) and service was fantastic. We had a great time and will DEFINITELY recommend to friends. The ONLY sticky point was that to get from the parking garage to the hotel elevators, you have to wind through the entire first floor of the hotel. But that's not really a big deal at all. Also the hotel is a GREAT area with lots of shopping, dining, and fun at your fingertips! Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

"very close to becoming 5 star."
My wife and I had an all around great experience. The staff was outstanding. There are little things here and there that could be done to boost the overall feel of the hotel but I have nothing bad to say about it. The splash movie theater is awesome as well. We are already planning our next stay.Genuine Hotels.com guest review

"good hotel but"
My over all experience was good. But I had two issues. 1. I waited 5+ minutes for someone to server me at the starbucks. I just left. 2. one of the 3 treadmills in the gym didn't work.Genuine Hotels.com guest review

My only complaint is the comfort of the bed. My wife woke up sore neck and back. The pillow and bed did measure up to overall ambiance.Genuine Hotels.com guest review

"Nice hotel close to the mall"
I enjoyed it and loved how the room is setup. The Rooms where comfortable and cleanGenuine Expedia guest review
It was a very good experience love Hotel Derek, the guess service was awesome as well as the service. The room were very accommodating and Bedding was very comfortable which is an A+ for me when I have. Food was great in Restaurant even though the hotel was surround by the Houston Galleria and other great restaurant to choose from. It was a great stay […] would definitely stay again and highly recommend to friends. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
Nice hotel... very hip and close to shopping and restaurants. In room breakfast was late but management came to room to apologize and take 1/2 off bill. Overall, this is a good hotel.Genuine Expedia guest review
After one night in Houston as a stopping point for a beach vacation, the hotel Derek looked like a very nice place worth checking out. The lobby is very cool and the front desk had no issues with my reservation. The room was nicely appointed even though it was getting dated in some points. The bath tub was pretty old and worn and we did not want to […] use or step in it even though it was probably fine. The major issue I have expressed is the doorway to the hall has a huge gap at the bottom so any ambient noise is free to go into the room. There was a wedding party on the floor partying until 4 am so we did not get any sleep. Not recommended unless they fix done if these details Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Good room and view. Restaurant closes too early"
Got there at 11pm, no food available, nor even munchies at bar, restaurant and room service closed...not to my or my wife s liking. Room was ok, nice view of highway and skyscrapers...Genuine Expedia guest review
On Friday May 16, 2014 my boyfriend and I, along with three other couples checked in to Hotel Derek. While we were excited about the "weekend getaway" within five minutes of checking in and accessing our room my boyfriend, and I noticed the toilet was running, had low water pressure, the shower head was difficult to use, which also had low water pressure. […] The bed was platform and very low to the ground and uncomfortable. Our party had to drive around the area twenty minutes in search of a microwave to heat our food. As we were told we would need to pay $25.00 to "rent" the hotel microwave. Finally, we ended up paying concierge to warm our food in the employee break room area. Basically our overall experience at Hotel Derek was terrible and we will NEVER return. It was not a 4 star hotel! Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
Response by Hotel Derek Houston Galleria Hotel Derek is a very cool, trendy boutique hotel and we offer lots of services and amenities that we hope our guests will love. The newly designed guestroom and suites at Hotel Derek give a contemporary H-Town centric vibe – but they do not include microwaves or kitchenettes - we apologize that the absence of this service took you by surprise. Live Well,
This was a beautiful hotel, you can tell rooms are a bit older but they maintain them well. Lobby and facilities could not have been more beautiful. I would stay again Next time I come through Houston. Great location alsoGenuine Hotels.com guest review
Great hotel! We very much enjoyed our stay there. Only down side is plan on paying quite a bit to eat there breakfast too. Nothing is complementary.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
The staff was extremely nice and accommodating.The only downside was that the room was not cleaned well after the first night.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Not worth the price"
For this price range, there are about a dozen hotels in Houston that offer more convenience and comfort. The lobby is nice, though.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Should have heeded the warnings."
I liked the location and modern appearance, so I ignored some if the warnings and booked my one night stay. Upon arrival, I realized that this is an old hotel with modern appearing decor. Largest issue were the thin walls as mentioned by others. Nothing like being awoken at 4am by the neighbors. The bathroom is functional, but had an old tub that just […] felt dirty. In all, this is a decent hotel with a prime location, just don't expect your overall feeling to match that of professional photography on its website. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

"Nice boutique hip hotel"
I get to Houston weekly. Stayed here many times on business and always consistent. Easy in and out, great location. Haven't stayed there in awhile, so good to see it's still good hotel. Being a road warrior, I would like to see a better fitness center. Really only reason I don't there unless no other choice.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"all good except for getting bullied into valet"
everything was perfect with one minor exception. Upon checking in at 1am on a Sunday I wasn't allowed to leave my car in front unless I agreed to valet service for the duration of my stay - which I did. Most hotels will allow you to park in front for a few minutes while you check in.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
The bathroom was very dated. The mini bar key/refrigerator wouldn't open. Front desk service was cold, she didn't even ask us how our stay was. Will not stay there again.Genuine Hotels.com guest review

Very nice and quiet neighborhood its in. Pharmacy is just across the street for any last minute needed ancillaries.Genuine Hotels.com guest review

"If you like a glamorous weekend stay - this works."
I will be writing a note to the hotel as well. The hotel nails the glamour and tony vibe - well done. As a business traveler, however, I'm really tired of being locked out of my room because my key cards doesn't work over night, or in an hour, or even consistently. House cleaning does a fabulous job between 8am and maybe 1pm, but not after that time […] - so if you work in your room, you either have to leave for them to clean it, or no house keeping for you that day. I love that they have a Starbucks counter within the hotel, but I don't have time for someone to find time to make me a cappucino. I brought in a bottle of wine, and was charged $10 for the mini bar corkscrew that broke off before it opened the bottle. When I brought it downstairs for the bartender to open (broken corkscrew stuck in the cork and all) - he was able to open in it, but I was still charged for the over priced and worthless cork screw. The front desk is horribly understaffed, so you won't get anything done quickly. Again, GREAT place for a sassy weekend, but NO GO for the business traveler on a schedule, or trying to catch a flight. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
Room was large, comfortable but they sure skimped on the details in the room. Plenty of drawer space....if you call a basket on a shelf a drawer. It worked but I was unimpressive on the way they saved $ in designing cabinetry and doors. This place was clearly built on a budget and they did ok given that. The door to the bath was a sliding door on a […] track held above. Not the most aesthetic, unless you live in a warehouse. All that said, it didn't ruin our stay. The mattress was not the best as it slumped in the middle. Breakfast was good...never did the buffet but the menu offered good omelettes and more. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

"1 Night Getaway + Hotel Derek = SUCCESS"
I was anxious about getting into the hotel with parking and check-out, but I worried for nothing because entering to the hotel was a breeze. The front desk people were quick and friendly. The lobby smelled great. When we got into the room we were very pleased. Smelled great, temperature was great. There was a booger on the telephone, but I didn't let […] it bother me because I was blown away when staff called the room shortly after arriving to make sure things were okay. I really enjoyed my stay. I'm not thrilled about the price that I paid. I should have booked through the hotels site. I know better for next time because I will be back.

"Girl's Night In"
It had been a long time coming for my best friends and I to hang, veg out and just talk girltalk. We decided to have an adult slumber party and what better way but to have it at Hotel Derek; for a reasonable price too! Check-in was super quick. The room was absolutely chic and super cute; such a nice feel. Hotel lobby and common areas had such great […] style and decor. How could we possibly resist not taking so many pics. We had dinner and drinks at Vin which is located in the hotel. We were treated with the upmost hospitality and the food was amazing. I definitely recommend Hotel Derek to host any of your upcoming events even if it is a much-needed staycation. All smiles! Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
