interior is loud – visually and aurally. Neon colors are everywhere, and, when I visited, C&W was blaring on “Western Wednesday.” The Western theme is ongoing. Cows are also everywhere, and the hotel projects Westerns nightly into a lasso on the cow-painted wall of a neighboring building. I visited at around five on a weekday and, instead of the fruit-infused water every other hotel offers, there was free wine and vodka. Though far from the popular club districts of Midtown and Washington, this is apparently the place people come for one Friday or Saturday night.

The valet is pricey, but if you're swinging by only to eat or hang out at the bar, it's complimentary! Folks staying at the hotel should expect to pay over $20 per day. Everything you want to do in Houston is pretty nearby and the hotel has a swanky, upscale feel. File this one under 'boutique hotel' for sure.

This is a great hotel for couples or groups who are celebrating a bachelor or bachelorette party. The hotel also has a car service that can be used complimentary within areas of reason. You can't take it across town, but you can take it to a nearby nightclub for a celebrity moment. The crowd here is trendy and it's mostly young couples or groups of friends.

Hotel Derek, the classy boutique hotel, is conveniently located in the heart of Houston. It is perfectly located near the Galleria Mall and the Water Wall.

The service is superb. When you first get there you'll be greeted by your very own valet driver. This chic hotel offers valet parking only. If you can forget that you are paying $21 a night for valet parking and actually enjoy yourself, it is a pretty good feeling to know that your car will be parked and delivered to you when you need it. All you have to do is call down stairs to let them know you need it. You'll almost wish you had a driver. I've read others though others have had to wait for a long time to get their cars . Thankfully I didn't experience that.

This hotel is known for the restaurant and bar. If you want to come for only to eat the valet parking will be complimentary. If you do decide to stay here they have an assortment of jazz bands or events that go through the week and including happy hour for the bar. The even have refreshing water for you as you walk to and from the elevators.

The staff is friendly and accommodating. If you need recommendation for restaurants or even popcorn to be popped they are happy to help you You can request the highest room and they will try their best to get it for you. Try to get a room that faces the sunrise it is just breathtaking!

The room itself is a modern sleek room. Yes it is has a bit of an old feel to it but it keeps reminds me of Mad Men. Simple and tasteful. The room is spacious and they include a day sofa on the side. They have a large 32 flat screen TV and ice machine around the corner. Feel free to use the refrigerator even though it looks sealed. The beds comfy and cozy. Pillows are wonderful.

The only downside this place is that it is an older building with no vents in the bathroom, 21 valet parking, and the walls are a bit thin but it didn't bother me. It can be hard to get to it if you don't slow down. You have to turn on Westheimer Rd where the CVS is at or else you'll have to loop around. Also traffic is terrible around this area around 4-6 pm.

However location is great: Midtown and Galleria is soo close. Le Peep is also a great breakfast place you can eat at. You can walk there! CVS is just across the street too!! It is a great place to stay!

Swanky, swanky! I found a good deal online, so we stayed there after a friend's wedding. The furniture is almost a bit too modern. I nearly destroyed my shin on the sharp corners of the platform bed. But if you like a W Hotel-esque feel without the thumping sounds of a club, the Derek is a nice alternative. Bad news: Valet parking is expensive and takes a while, especially on a Saturday night.
