Hotel Derek Achieves 2014 Forbes Travel Guide Four Star Status
We’re absolutely tickled pink by our latest accolade and we couldn’t wait to share this exciting news with you! Forbes Travel Guide recently released its list of 2014 Star Rated Hotels, Restaurants and Spas, and yours truly received a Four Star rating, a first-ever for our signature boutique property. Our 312-room hotel is one of only five Houston properties to receive the prestigious Forbes Four Star rating, and the only property to be added to the list this year. Needless to say, we’re in good company here in Houston!
According to Forbes Travel Guide, Four Star hotels provide a distinctive setting where the guest will find many interesting and inviting elements to enjoy throughout the property. Attention to detail is prominent – from design concept to the quality of products provided – and staff are accommodating and take pride in catering to the guest’s specific needs. The Forbes Travel Guide rating process includes both a faculty inspection and a follow up service evaluation, which is conducted by an anonymous inspector who performs an incognito evaluation based on more than 550 service standards.
Stay tuned for more exciting news to come in 2014 – from a highly stylized fitness center dubbed “SWEAT” to major restaurant changes, renovated meeting space for groups and social catering events and hip pool enhancements, which include a three-story, and a Texas-inspired movie wall designed by a local artist.
