Thieve! Wedding girfts and luggage stolen
A friend boooked us a room at this so called 4 star hotel as a wedding present for 2 days, when we left and came back later on that night our room was clean and our luggage and wedding presents were gone! I called the front desk and lady said she would call me back she never did i went downstairs and said she could not do anything because her Director of Operations was not there and they could no handle the "issue' until monday, there was no such thing as customer service the manager was rude and they offered no type of compensation. So its now tuesday and no call from nobody. Please do not stay at that hotel its overpriced and not all its said to be.
Cheats at Cribbage
Hotel is fine. But Derek's lame Cribbage play is out weighed by decent skills in art of smack.
Really Derek? Three games does not a tournament make. Superman? More like super lame!
Any way I am ready and willing to grant you audience with the king to have an actual tournament.
And your side kick John better get ready, I am taking him down next!!!!
Unique Quality: Pleasant, but he's no King.

As a business traveller, I often get to stay in a hotel that is a little beyond the means of most budget travellers, but I guess for the sake of everyone, you should know the difference between the Hampton Inn, and the higher end hotels such as Hotel Derek.
For the Sake of argument, I will break down what I expect out of a hotel, and what this hotel provides.
#1 A comfortable bed. Hotel Derek has a wonderfully nice bed, however is it worth the extra premium? Maybe for a honeymoon, but not everyday travellers.
#2 Great staff helping you. Hotel Derek is way further along than those Hampton Inn guys :)
#3 Location - This hotel is right next to the Galleria, so you are in a prime shopping location.
All in all, this was a nice stay and I would recommend it.
