New management is obvious! Very disappointing. I have stayed at the Hotel Derek several times pre-Covid and have always had a lovely experience. I had a very different experience during my recent stay in 2024. Formerly a standout luxury boutique hotel in a sea of boring conference hotels, this hotel was my go to stay when visiting Houston. My recent stay was just as expensive, with a high resort fee and high parking fee (for an empty parking lot), housekeeping is by request only, the pool is not heated despite paying an additional fee for use, the refrigerator in the room did not work and the television was unable to connect to any apps, like netflix and hulu. I watched television on my laptop computer. This is a stay I would expect at a budget motel. Very disappointing and I am now on the prowl for a similar experience to the old Hotel Derek of the past.

We had an enjoyable stay at Hotel Derek. The location was great when visiting family and friends and the staff were engaging. The Front Desk team were welcoming at check-in and our room was exceptionally clean. We only had the opportunity to enjoy breakfast and the restaurant team was a delight.

Friendly Staff…..Alma in the restaurant was Fantastic. She was always prompt with our food and explained the menu to us and she always had a smile on her face. Jameisha was incredible! From the moment we checked in she took care of all of our needs. I was terrified of elevators but we were on the 11th floor and she offered to ride it with me so that I would fill safe. She always had a smile on her face and ready to assist us when need be. The hotel itself needs a rehab. It’s in a prime location for food, shops, and etc but the level of luxury wasn’t as I expected. It was clean but the first room the toilet wouldn’t flush and one of the complimentary waters had been drank out of. The second room was better but just not great. Overall, as long as they renovate and keep the same staff I would gladly stay there again.

We had our annual company holiday party at a Hotel Derek and the staff there was absolutely amazing! Ms Aima in particular was outstanding! Her customer service set the bar high as when we walked in and needed to adjust some things, she got right on it and made sure it was to our liking. She and her team were right there the entire night to assist us with whatever we needed. The food was promptly brought out, the set up was spectacular, and she and her team definitely helped the evening run smoothly!! We so appreciate you and your team Ms. Aima as you guys made our night very special!!!

I've stayed at the Derek in past years and always had a positive visit, but when I booked online and then attempted to reach someone at the hotel about a special request, I started to worry, after several phone calls and voice mails went unanswered, I used the info@hotelderek.com to which I also received no reply to two emails, I then phoned the main number and was given the 3rd degree as to why I wanted to speak to a manager and then was told no one was in and that "he" was a concierge and supervisor - "what did I want" After giving my name and arrival date 3 times, and to continue to be talked down to - I hung up, went on-line and cancelled my booking - there is a sort of new Holiday Inn Express right behind the Derek that was happy to speak with me, amend my special request and send me on my way feeling good

What a hassel! Never again. The ice machines don’t work on floors 15,12,9,8, 7,6 or 4. Up and down searching for a working ice machine… Plus wandering all over just to find the out-of-order ice machines. Did I mention a signage issue??? Get into the elevator and it doesn’t work; traipse back to reception and they tell you to use your key card; go back to the elevator, and, what luck!!! another elevator opens and it has a sign to use the key card—thank you!!! The parking situation could be okay—except for the hassles caused by…yes!!! No signage! Oh, and key cards work poorly—riding up and down trying to get the key card to work while trying to find a working ice machine. I paid for the room when I booked and when I got there I had to pay an additional fee ($17). For what ??? There was a hugh stick-on eyelash on the floor of the room.—uck! There’s more but I think you get the pic. Btw, this could be a great place to stay…

My whole experience was a 7/10 . The hotel was beautiful..our room was nice, there was a couple things I didn’t like.. a stain on the couch in the room and the shower was a little stained. There is a 100$ a day security fee that they take out when you check in. They say breakfast is free but they charge you 17$ a day as an amenity fee for the pool/breakfast etc . Breakfast was ok as an hotel guest for “free” breakfast we can get the All American breakfast that consist of eggs, bacon,potatoes and toast, however the server/waitress in there was AMAZING. I’m pretty sure her name is Alma and she was the only one taking orders for everyone. She was very attentive and fast considering how much people are in there every morning. She was very sweet also. If I did decide to come back to the hotel I would only come for her !!
