Three Day Potty Training

A travel blog entry by birdhelen1

Bringing up a toddler is not necessarily a walk around the block particularly if the youngster is unpredictable. Possibly that's the reason the proliferation of children training materials has struck the ground sprinting in these recent times. In this particular light, three day toilet training systems are in high demand, merely because they complement a child's development in a manner that not anything else can. However, mothers ...

... online research, then searches the skyline for a nice, new building, and then conducts a 12 point room inspection before playing “Let’s Make a Deal” with the front desk. Clean carpets for Mathew on the floor and the rigorous room inspections aside, she usually comes out befriending the receptionist as she did last night with Sonya. I don’t think you’ll find this method in any of the travel guides, but it seems to work well for ...

Day 14 - Back to Houston

... flying home from Ireland the same day and were on the same flight from DC to Houston, so we met up with them in the airport. It was good to see some familiar faces and to reconnect with good friends and begin sharing stories about our trip. Our vacation was amazing and one we'll never forget! Taking two weeks to explore parts of the world we've never seen before not only helped us gain a ...

I'm up early and on the move again. Due to the unreliable way my android phone has been operating, I organise the route on my iPhone while I'm still on the wifi at the hotel. There is only one downfall to this, and it sticks out it's grubby neck on my way out of Dallas. Due to the amount of highways that are in these big cities and the way they twist and loop around each other when they intersect, it can get a little confusing, and I was such confused on one exit. The iPhone, now ...

    Historical Traveler Reviews Hotel Derek Houston Galleria



    We stayed at the Hotel Derek for two nights - granted, we checked in VERY late the first night - after midnight - but was treated very rudely by the desk clerk. She was EXTREMELY slow and inhospitable and was rude when I asked her to repeat information - her back was turned to me when she was giving me our room number. There were several extremely drunk people milling around the lobby - one person passed out in a chair. There was a problem with the heater in our room and it was freezing for most of the day - instead of switching us to another room, maintenance came (two guys) and pitched ladders and inspected the vents for thirty minutes. They climbed on the bed and were crawling all around the bathroom where personal items were. We had brunch in the morning; the service was OK - the prices not worth it. Overall, I would consider going back one more time for comparison, but it won't be anytime soon.

    Wonderful 5* Hotel


    I spent 2 nights at this hotel. I found it based on discount sites and their description of the hotel. I located the hotel on Expedia for $89/night. I felt like I was paying too little for the wonderful and fantastic service I got. It really is a 5 star hotel. They have a shuttle service that will take you anywhere within 3 miles. This includes the Galleria, restaurants and clubs/bars. They accomodated every request, i.e. restaurant reservations and starch to iron clothes.

    Hotel Derek is Mordern Class!


    We really enjoyed our stay at Hotel Derek. The staff was very friendly, and tried very hard to please. You do have to use their valet parking services, and that can add up. The rooms are very nice, well decorated and large!



    Truely a unique experience. Very nice and fun. Rooms were spacious.

    AC/Heating was well balanced. Just the right amount of night white-noise. Very creative room lighting. Bright for reading and dimmable for a softer touch. Just remember to add $18 for mandatory valet parking when you comparison price it. We will definitely stay there again.

    Very good hotel


    The staff was extremely courteous and friendly. They never complained, even though I had more than three guests (although they made up for it since I paid for everyone's overnight Valet parking).

    This hotel has a very odd retro feel to it, but it's not all that distracting. The beds were also *extremely* comfortable. As an FYI, you get a free escort to any location within 5 minutes of the hotel--so there's no need to drive to Pappadeaux's or the Galleria.

    Overall, I am extremely satisfied and would highly recommend Hotel Derek.

    Very Pleased


    My husband and I enjoyed our stay very much. Wouldn't think about staying anywhere else next time in Houston. Very comfortable rooms.

    Very much unique and unexpected. Would stay for business or pleasure.

    Great Hotel!


    My company put me at this hotel on a recent trip. I had business at the Galleria across the street. Beautiful, modern designed hotel, great rooms, and great for working, big desk, super T1 Internet, nice staff. All in all an excellent experience. I use to stay at Doubletree Post Oak, too worn out, no more.

    Clean Hotel Derek


    Top notch design. Loved all the lighting in the room. Sheets smelled like my own at home. Fresh and clean. Husband and I enjoyed our one night there. A 5 star hotel gets one more star from me!

    My Favorite Place in Houston


    I love the Derek! This is where I stay anytime I am in Houston. The rooms are fabulous - the beds have featherbeds, amazigly comfortable comforters and about 6 pillows. You get a robe and awesome bath products. The staff is curteous. The bar is trendy and full of prominent figures. I once saw a famous baseball player there. I love this place - I can't speak enough about it. And here is a hint - if you use Hotwire to book it, you can get the room for $87 a night. What more can you ask for - luxuary, service and style.

    Unique to Houston


    Hotel Derek is a "must stay." This is Houston's first modern boutique hotel and they really outdid themselves.

    Stylish, cool and elegant, this hotel has great rooms and a terrific restaurant/bar filled with locals and hotel guests. The hotel staff was extra friendly and helpful.

    I travel to Houston all the time.....Hotel Derek is the most unique hotel in the city.
