Fodor's Expert Review Hotel Derek
2525 W. Loop S, Houston, Texas, 77027, USA
While service and general atmosphere seem to be slipping lately, the Hotel Derek is still a good value for its location and sophistication. Modern furnishings grace the glossy-floored lobby and the 314 sleek, contemporary rooms. It's a favorite of both business and leisure travelers looking for an alternative to a traditional chain hotel. The scene-y Bistro Moderne restaurant and bar closed in late 2007; new concepts are on the drawing board at this writing.
- Interesting decor, complimentary shuttle around town, great pool area
- Congested location, expensive valet parking
