Hotel Derek Houston Galleria, Houston
Nice stay!
Nice hotel with a retro look to it. Service was wonderful and would stay again if in the area.

Hotel Derek Houston Galleria, Houston
You will pay much more of what's shown
There are many hidden fees. Parking is $25 and not $23 as shown. There is another $25 fee for Wi-Fi (it's not free and you don't have the choice not to pay it) and many other State and accommodation charges that I didn't know in advance. The booking per was about CAD$130 and I ended up paying CAD$223.10!!! I'm not happy at all. The hotel is fine, nothing out of the ordinary and it's clean.

Very Good8.0
A little bit too far from downtown
Stayed for 1 night. Great hotel. Modern but could be better. Showers require some maintenance. Other than that all was good

Hotel Derek Houston Galleria, Houston
Wedding at the hotel on Friday night kept us up most of the night. Uniformed cop as security in the lobby made us question the type of guests staying at the hotel and affiliated with the wedding. The pool was not really what we expected, very small, seemed like an actual pool in the picture. Actual size was more like a large hot tub.
