Why Stay At Hotel Derek
Trending now with a newly hip approach in Houston's Loop only half a mile from the 400-store Galleria shopping mecca.
Leather couches and dark wood accents in the lobby plus contemporary artwork and original photography by Arthur Meyerson gracing the walls constitute Hotel Derek's urban chic Lone Star-style. In the airy rooms, bold splashes of orange paired with lively patterns, banquette-style settees and floor-to-ceiling windows underscore the hotel's modern carefree vibe. Catch some rays on the rooftop terrace beside the splash pool and sip a classic Mojito to gild that perfect moment. Houston's last independent boutique hotel offers guests a 24-hour business center and an on-site gym. Dine at red-tinged Vin Bar headed by Chef Shannen Tune who gives traditional dishes a new spin. On the menu: lobster mac-n-cheese and an extensive burger selection from alligator to wild boar.
Need to get somewhere in a hurry? Request the hotel's chauffeured car service for destinations within a three-mile radius.
Bring your pooch to this pet-friendly hotel and receive some special amenities for Fido. Tip: A portion of the pet fee is donated to the SPCA.
