    Hotel Derek · August 28, 2015
  • Jetset Extra

    The hotel invites you to be yourself by injecting your own personality into every element, with out-of-the-box thinking that includes a Western movie every night and a pop-up Eurobar in the evenings. Read more

    Hotel Derek's Valentino Vin Bar includes an intimate fine dining restaurant and relaxed wine bar by Italian Wine Hall of Fame member and lauded restaurateur, Piero Selvaggio.

    This hotel is over rated. They have snacks, but for a small bag of m&m's it's $3.00 when they are $1.00 at the store. I was afraid to use the toilet paper afraid I might be charged per square.

    Lisa Stout · July 4, 2011
  • Chris H.

    Well so far so food, odd number room 611. Facing the mall, no noise. Room reminds you if the Liwes hotel in Chicago. Large wall to wall window and sofa. Hotel is contemparary style.

    Chris Holdip · April 9, 2013
  • Juan

    Worse hotel ever! I booked through rocketmiles based on the stars the hotel was given. Well, the reality is this is a ONE star hotel. The rooms are outdated, they don't follow up on promises.

    Juan · December 3, 2015
  • Robert V.

    City View rooms facing the Galleria are nice but make sure you're on a higher floor so you hear less highway noise! Even numbered rooms face downtown (not as much to see though).

    Robert Valle · March 13, 2011
  • JESS K.

    Their "free" car service is only good for ONE MILE. That is NOT far enough in a big city like Houston. Should be 3-5 miles! Concierge NOT helpful. Front desk NOT helpful. Better the last time.

    JESS Kalinowsky · September 16, 2012
  • Kayla T.

    the valet and security staff are SO rude here. I was so offended by how they treated me that I promise I will never come back here ever again.What a shame such a nice place hires such big jerks.

    Kayla Thompson · August 8, 2013
  • Nikki ..

    Decent stay, my only issue was that valet is $28 but I somehow ended up paying $42. How in the hell that happen? They don't tell you about all the taxes the add to it. Self parking is $20.

    The seared tuna salad in the restaurant is amazing! Great service and the staff is so friendly! Very modern.. Love it!

    Courtney Davis · February 3, 2014
  • Karen V.

    Great location, great service, clean, trendy, and close to anything you need (either by foot or their free shuttle). Valet parking is good, but very expensive

    Karen Van Heukelem · October 27, 2010
  • Lindsay L.

    Trendy facade (Lobby and bar are great) let down by run down, dirty rooms and tired, stained bathrooms. Don't be fooled by the flash public area, this hotel is run down where it matters

    Lindsay Lovell · July 19, 2015
  • Paul K.

    Great views from this hotel. It was really neat having a corner room and having that wrap around effect. Will stay here again for special occasions.

    Paul Kulish · October 12, 2012
  • Mohamad S.

    Don't pay for late check out! Just ask for Derek free membership few hours prior to your check out.

    Mohamad Saoud · July 31, 2015
  • Gerren H.

    If you have a wedding here make sure you get the steak and chicken on your buffet. Best wedding food yet!

    Gerren Henry · December 5, 2011
  • Anna G.

    Book in advance on their site and get free parking. So worth it since valet is $20 a night!

    Anna Gallegos · July 23, 2011
  • Mike C.

    Business travelers be warned - the wifi and ethernet connections in this hotel are unbearably slow or sometimes don't work at all!

    Mike Conti · February 29, 2012
  • JESS K.

    Hotels are rated on 1-5 Stars. This one says they are a 4. They are only a 3.5 Star.

    Location is very good. Staff is very friendly. The style is perfect.

    Can Ormanci · July 24, 2015
  • Courtney D.

    I thought this would be a great experience. But I went to the gym and returned-- no water at all. No warning, nothing. Just turned it off. Now I'm sweaty.

    Courtney Davis · February 6, 2014
  • Glenda M.

    Avoid odd-numbered rooms on low floors, as you'll be listening to the freeway all night long.

    Glenda McKinney · May 24, 2010
  • William L.

    Good Hotel, room very nice, services excellent! very good amenities.

    William Lockward · October 28, 2013
  • Brad W.

    Don't stay here if your planning on using the Internet. It's only "slightly" better than a dial up modem!

    Brad Wickwire · January 18, 2012
  • Diamond

    Decently priced small breakfast but terrible and rude service. Not to mention they managed to burn a bagel...

    Diamond · August 21, 2010
  • Chung-yee N.

    Bring toothpaste! The hotel does not provide it and they charge $15 for a "travelers kit"

    Chung-yee Ngo · March 30, 2012

    Free shuttle service within a 3 mile radius is available here. · October 18, 2012
  • Laura H.

    The the amazing cocktails at VIN BAR!

    Laura Heathcott · July 3, 2013
  • Scott S.

    This is no longer a luxury hotel. Very run down.

    Scott Schneider · October 7, 2012
  • Carrie D.

    This place tries to hard to be trendy and fails. Miserably. Terrible techno music in the lobby. IKEA threw up in here.

    Carrie Dufresne · February 11, 2014
  • Emmit L.

    Great place right in the middle of the action.

    Emmit Luther · March 3, 2014

    Internet is incredibly slow, but at least it is FREE!

    Roll to a local corporate HQ in style via the complimentary Derek Mobile, a black stretch SUV.

    The slowest front desk ever!

    Mohamad Saoud · July 31, 2015
  • Jeff S.

    $7.50 for a liter bottle of Fiji water is ridiculous.

    Jeff Stefancic · January 15, 2012
  • Kathy S.

    Bit of a bummer the hotel bar closes so early.

    Kathy Stabe · September 30, 2012
