How Suite It Is
Hotel Derek rolls out killer suites designed for the outlaw, the sophisticate and the daydreamer
Since its opening some two decades ago, Hotel Derek has stood as a moniker for over-the-top contemporary design. But not since then has the hotel undergone such an updating as its recently re-imagined concept suites.
Think edgy, colorful and contemporary chic. That's what visitors to the hotel will find when they check into the 500-square-foot suites with engaging themes such as Wrangler, Freedom, Behave and Daydream.
Interior designer Gail McCleese of Gensler headed the project for the Destination Hotels property. " “I love this hotel. It’s so brave in its approach," she says. "Hotel Derek steps outside typical boundaries, making it exactly what a designer looks for in a project.”
The psychedelic wallpaper in the Behave Suite and the space odyssey vibe of the Balanced Suite are what adventurous guests might expect from a lifestyle, independent brand such as Hotel Derek.
Each suite boasts a playful approach to its theme with vibrant color and decor and inviable views through floor-to-ceiling windows that offer views of the downtown skyline, River Oaks or the Galleria.
The suites are priced from $500 per night.
