    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.

    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.

    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 The rooms are outdated, they don't follow up on promises.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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).

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

    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

    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

    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.

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

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

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

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

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

    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.

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

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

    Front desk disorganized. Make sure you give them your CC info. They'll literally lock you out of room!

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