Hotel Description

Though it’s America’s fourth-largest city, it’s rare that Houston gets mentioned in the same breath as New York or Los Angeles. That’s just coastal snobbery, of course — and anyone who’s still capable of overlooking Houston hasn’t spent much time in its hotels. Some of them are as stylish as any in the country; Hotel Derek, for one, would easily hold its own against most of its coastal cousins.

This was the first independent boutique hotel in Houston, and its location in the shopping and entertainment district of Uptown sets it up as a nice alternative to the office towers and chain hotels downtown. The Sixties-inspired modernist décor lends it plenty of visual character — a look whose appeal is even wider in the post–Mad Men era.

Of course design, however confidently executed, only gets you so far. What takes Hotel Derek the rest of the way is attention to the rest of the package: comfortable beds, spa-like bathrooms, bright sunlight from full-length windows, and some locally inflected dining options. Revolve Kitchen + Bar serves a fine Texas-style breakfast each morning; and Vin, a stylish modern bar and restaurant, pairs its strong selection of cocktails, beers and wines with an eclectic menu ranging from artisanal cheeses to tuna tartare to alligator burgers.
