In recent years, Houston's Uptown District has become the city's de facto downtown. Never mind that once upon a time the area was beyond city limits; today it's a hub for Houston's premier commercial enterprises, with high-fashion retail, top-notch restaurants, and four-star hotels drawing more than 20 million visitors to the district each year.

Less than a mile from The Galleria—Houston's premier upmarket retail center and the largest mall in Texas—the Hotel Derek injects its own brand of style and sophistication into the bustling Uptown District. This 314-room boutique hotel is, first and foremost, dedicated to design: Sleek black floors lend the lobby a posh-penthouse vibe, while rich leather couches, cowhide rugs, wood accents, and framed artwork create a homier atmosphere reminiscent of a hip Manhattan apartment. And it doesn't just look nice; it feels nice too. Rooms are appointed with plush beds draped in satiny linens, a large glass work table satisfies business travelers' needs, and cozy bathrobes lie in wait in each room.

Mornings at the Hotel Derek begin with breakfast at the Valentino Vin Bar Houston. A sumptuous American buffet by morning and an elegant Italian restaurant and wine bar by night, this outpost of the original Valentino in Santa Monica dishes out time-honored recipes made with fresh, seasonal produce and top-quality meats, plus cocktails, beer, and wine.

After a light workout in the hotel's fitness room, or a refreshing dip in the outdoor pool, head to the centerpiece of Uptown: The Galleria, a three-million-square-foot homage to consumerism fit with 375 stores—many of them high-end—two hotels, a sprawling office complex, and a private health club.

  • "The greeting is pleasant, rooms are comfortable, and the overall vibe from the staff is great. My preferred hotel in The Galleria district. Even the valet personnel make you feel at home. Best bet."
